driver-controlled power outlet a “convenience”
Detroit News

TheCarConnection.com’s editors read reviews of the 2009 Dodge Journey, and all the road tests gave the crossover the highest marks for its standard and optional features -- some of which are borrowed directly from the company’s Dodge Grand Caravan minivan.

The Journey “excels on the inside,” Edmunds.com reports. It’s “loaded with clever, well-conceived minivan-style conveniences,” such as a cooled glove box for sodas, all those storage bins in the floor and door panels, and an iPod holder in the center console.

The Journey’s standard equipment includes a tilt steering wheel; air conditioning; a six-CD changer; and power windows, locks, and mirrors. The SXT version adds a power driver seat, keyless entry, a 115-volt power outlet, and satellite radio. The top R/T edition gets 19-inch wheels, dual-zone climate control, leather upholstery, heated front seats, and remote start.

Major options, Cars.com adds, include Bluetooth; a rear air conditioner; a rear-seat entertainment system; and Chrysler’s MyGig navigation and entertainment system with a backup camera. It adds that the “third-row seat runs a stiff $1,220.” The available power outlet can be shut off by the driver, which The Detroit News calls a “convenience” that can protect curious children from shocks.

TheCarConnection.com’s editors agree that the Journey offers all the features and conveniences that a family would want. However, those options add up: you can price a Dodge Journey into the $35,000 stratosphere if you're a gadget freak. The sole feature missing seems to be the new SiriusTV system, which Chrysler is using as a come-on for its newly restyled minivans. The three-channel satellite television system will be offered in the Journey later this year.


Conclusion

Few crossovers come close to matching the 2009 Dodge Journey’s extensive list of features.

How does the
TCC Rating work?
The TCC Rating is a clear numeric rating value based on a 10-point scale that reflects the overall opinion of our automotive experts on any vehicle and rolls up ratings we give each vehicle across sub-categories you care about like performance, safety, styling and more.

Our rating also has simple color-coded “Stop” (red), “Caution” (orange),
or “Go” (green) messages along with the numerical score so you can easily understand where we stand at a glance.

Our automotive experts then also collect and show you what other websites say about these different aspects of any vehicle. We do this leg work for you to simplify your research process.
