2018 Dodge Journey Driving

You don’t have to travel far to find a mid-size SUV that won’t hold you back. The 2018 Dodge Journey is a spacious, capable SUV with plenty of towing power for your Del Rio and Crystal City drives, and the Dodge Journey safety features offer all-around protection, no matter where life takes you!

Journey Safety Features: Crash Prevention

These technologies are designed to prevent both major and minor collisions, so you can enjoy greater peace-of-mind and more convenience on your drives around the Eagle Pass region. The Journey features the following active technologies:

  • ParkView® Rear Backup Camera: When you shift your vehicle into reverse, your Dodge Journey ParkView® backup camera will display the area behind your vehicle directly on your UConnect® display. Guidelines are visible on-screen, so you won’t have to guess where you’re headed.
  • Electronic Stability Control: Your Dodge Journey is constantly analyzing the road, as well as your steering inputs, as it works to maximize your control on slippery, gravelly, or otherwise inhospitable roads.
  • Electronic Roll Mitigation: When your Journey detects the possibility of a rollover, it will automatically reduce engine power while applying the brakes gently. In this way, it works to keep you planted on all four wheels.
  • Disc Antilock Brakes with Electronic Brake Force Distribution: Every Dodge Journey has been equipped with four disc antilock brakes, and in a panic-stop brake test from Edmunds.com, it was able to go from 60 mph to 0 in as little as 124 feet. Electronic Brake Force Distribution helps to maintain even brake pressure from the front to the rear.
  • Brake Assist: When the brake assist technology feature detects the telltale signs of emergency braking, it immediately unleashes the full potential of your brakes, enabling you to come to a halt more quickly.
  • ParkSense® Rear Park Assist System: Ready to take the stress out of parking? With the ParkSense® rear park alert system, you’ll receive an automatic warning each time you’re at risk of colliding with an object in your path.

Journey Safety Features: Crash Protection

In addition to the above, the 2018 Dodge Journey offers technologies designed to protect you and your passengers from the most dangerous forces that are generated during collisions. Here are just a few of the highlights:

  • Active front-seat head restraints:
  • Advanced multistage front airbags
  • Supplemental side curtain airbags
  • Front-seat-mounted side airbags
  • Driver’s knee bolster airbags
  • Protective frame with dual-phase steel
  • Front and rear crumple zones
