NAIAS Preview: 2010 Dodge Journey

Caught in some type of new vehicles release frenzy in light of the 2010 North American International Auto Show (NAIAS), American manufacturer Chrysler took the time to detail the assault of Dodge vehicles (with their related packages and special editions) which will take place in 2010.

The Dodge line-up for 2010 is opened by the 2010 Dodge Journey, which will come with several all-new models, upgraded features, all-wheel-drive capability and, as Chrysler says, "at a value customers can afford".

The entry level Dodge Journey packs a 2.4l World Engine, which delivers a 25 mpg highway fuel economy. The model features 17-inch aluminum wheels, cruise control, sunscreen glass and body-color mirrors. The price tag for the model is $20,995 (including $675 destination).

For the model described above, Chrysler offers the Express package, which adds 5+2 Flexible Seating that allows the car to seat seven passenger. The price for the Journey Express package is $21,995 (including $675 destination).

A more powerful Journey is also being offered by Chrysler in the form of the Hero package, which stars the 3.5l V6 engine, paired with a six-speed transmission and delivering 235 horsepower. The all-wheel-drive vehicle comes equipped with 19-inch aluminum wheels and costs $23,995 (including $675 destination).

The Dodge Journey Heat (for the 3.5l V6 engine model described above) is a more infotainment-oriented model, bringing with it Uconnect Phone, iPod Control, SIRIUS Satellite Radio, auto-dimming rear-view mirror, remote start, Electronic Vehicle Information Center (EVIC), HomeLink universal transceiver, tonneau cover and six premium speakers with subwoofer. It comes at a price of $24,995 (including $675 destination).

The family-carrier Dodge Journey Crew comes with even more additions. Based on the Heat, Crew adds automatic climate control, premium gauge cluster, 9-inch rear DVD entertainment system, chromed interior accents, chromed roof rack, chromed door handles, 19-inch painted machined wheels and body-color side sills. With it, here comes a price tag of $25,995 (including $675 destination).

The top-of-the-line Journey, the Uptown, is a bit more luxurious, as it features leather-trimmed seating, power sun roof, Media Center 730N navigation system with 30-gigabyte hard drive and real-time traffic monitoring and rear-seat DVD entertainment system. The price for the Uptown is $29,995 (including $675 destination).
