Safety is a strong selling point for the 2010 Dodge Journey.
For the 2010 model year, NHTSA (National Highway Traffic Safety Administration) awards the Journey five stars for front and side impact protection and four stars for rollover protection. The IIHS (Insurance Institute for Highway Safety) calls it a Top Safety Pick.
Standard safety equipment on the 2010 Dodge Journey includes dual front, side, and curtain airbags; stability and traction control; and new for 2010, active head restraints and four-wheel disc brakes with anti-lock control on all models. A rearview camera is available, as are integrated second-row child booster seats. The Detroit News adds that trailer-sway dampening and tire pressure monitoring are "refreshing" standard features.
Not yet crash-tested, the 2010 Dodge Journey has all the safety gear you'd expect-and then some.
