Another tall wagon making it’s debut by a domestic manufacturer, not my cup of tea, but surely someone wants the 09 Dodge Journey. For me it’s got everything but the wooden panels on the side and reminds me of what my grandparents probably drove in the 70’s. I mean, SUV’s were created for a reason, people were tired of either having to buy a station wagon or a mini-van, why are we regressing back to that?
The 09 Dodge Journey is 4 doors with a back hatch, long wheel base, and comes with either a 4 or 6 cylinder power plant. I guess I understand the concept, get the fuel economy of a car and the versatility of an SUV, but it just doesn’t work for me. And I’m not just speaking of looks, I’m also thinking function, where an SUV comes in handy going you know, off road. Buyers sacrifice a lot in the name of a few miles per gallon, like ride height, stronger suspension, and a little thing called torque.
Below are pictures of the 09 Dodge Journey, so you can judge for yourself.
