The Journey appeals to all types of buyers, with different needs.

The 2016 Dodge Journey was completely restyled for this latest model year, receiving new features, amenities, specifications, and more. Now, more than ever, the Journey is the perfect midsize crossover to suit every single one of your unique needs. With so many changes for 2016, we thought we would give a rundown of each trim level offering on the Dodge Journey, so you can see exactly what each one offers and how much you can expect to spend. Whether you are on a tight budget or have a little more cash to splurge, there is a Dodge Journey model that can deliver on both ends of the spectrum.

The 2016 Dodge Journey Models

Dodge offers the new Journey in four different trim levels for 2016. Starting out at $20,995, and going as high as $31,795, this midsize crossover is as versatile as it’s various price points. Let’s take a look at each of these five models, and see what each one offers as standard fare. After all, if Dodge has taught us anything, it’s that a low MSRP does not equal a bare-bones list of features.
