The 2010 Journey offers a class-beating set of available entertainment features. However, those options add up and you could spend $35,000 by specifying all of them.
Standard features include air conditioning; cruise control; power locks/mirrors/windows; a cooled glove box; a telescoping steering wheel; and an AM/FM/CD player with MP3 capability.
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. 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.
Other 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.
The Journey is the only crossover offered with Sirius Backseat TV, an on-the-go service with a small selection of kid-friendly programming. This year, the LCD screen for the DVD entertainment system and BackseatTV grows to nine inches in diagonal width.
No crossover can match the 2010 Dodge Journey's extensive list of entertainment features-though they can boost the price tremendously.
