Miami Lakes Dodge Journey Family

Family-Oriented 2016 Dodge Journey

Miami Lakes Dodge Journey FamilyWhen people hear the Dodge name, they think of two things – muscle cars and family cars. We talk plenty about the Dodge Challenger and Dodge Charger, so let’s put the family cars in the spotlight this time around. Particularly, one that doesn’t get the love and appreciation it deserves for such a family-friendly and oriented vehicle. Did you know the Dodge Journey might be the next car for your family?

Seating and Cargo

So to start off, the Dodge Journey has up to three rows of seating and can seat up to seven passengers at a time (five is the standard). Quite comfortably, too. The driver’s seat is six-way adjustable, and for instances where cargo is needed and no front passenger is in the car, the front passenger seat can be folded down for more room. Speaking of cargo, the second row is a 60/40 split-fold, and for easy access to the third row, the second-row seats tilt and slide forward. Plus, the Dodge Journey comes with integrated second-row child booster seats.

Comparison: Dodge Journey and GMC Acadia

Comparison 2016 Dodge Journey and 2016 MC AcadiaComparing vehicles made for a lot of passengers is never easy. Drivers want comfortable interiors, up-to-date technology, great fuel economy and safety, and why shouldn’t they? Those are the standards for vehicles today, and if one were to scrimp on either, well, it wouldn’t make the “Yes” pile when it comes to making a buying decision.

That’s why we take a hard look at vehicles when drawing up a comparison, from the engine specs to the safety and convenience features. Today, we’re taking a look at two 7-passenger seating mid-size SUVs/CUVs: the Dodge Journey and the GMC Acadia.

Miami Lakes Dodge Car Family

Dodge Family Cars and Specialties

Miami Lakes Dodge Car FamilyWhen on the road with family, there are a lot of things the modern driver takes into consideration. Will there be enough room for everyone and everything? Will I be able to keep the kids entertained on long drives? Is my car safe enough if an accident were to occur? These are the questions that pass through our mind when we have precious cargo on board. To give families vehicles that will take care all of their needs,  Dodge has 3 vehicles that answer all of those questions with “Yes.”

Storage and Seating Space

Three family cars by Dodge have plenty of space. First off, the Dodge Grand Caravan, Dodge Journey (all trims but the Journey SE), and Dodge Durango all have a seating capacity of seven passengers. Moreover, each of these vehicles has a variety of ways to store cargo.

The Dodge Grand Caravan has the famous Stow ‘n Go seating. This design allows drivers to fold up not just the second, but also the third row into the floor of the van, opening up a total of 140 cubic feet of storage space. With a family unit average of 4-5 people, there’s enough room for everyone in the front and second row, and then space for cargo with the third row folded down.

In addition to the convenient easy fold-down seats, when the seats are not folded down, there is plenty of storage room in the bins that would store the seats. These bins offer plenty of out-of-the-way storage space for beach things, camping equipment or even a safety kit.
