When you go on a road trip, you want a vehicle that combines a pleasant drive, super technology, and the ability to handle all kinds of challenging weather conditions. After all, you’ll spend a lot of your time on a road trip in a motor vehicle. Luckily, many automobiles in Dodge’s lineup provide those key attributes that you need for your trip. Learn more about three Dodge vehicles for the ultimate road trip experience.
The first notable attribute about the Dodge Journey is that this crossover SUV comes with three rows, which instantly makes it suitable for a large group looking to go on a road trip. In addition, the Dodge Journey comes with an available brilliantly clear and impressively large 8.4-inch touch screen that provides all the entertainment you need thanks to the smartphone integration feature and the nifty UConnect system.
There are many intelligent storage spaces throughout the cabin of the Dodge Journey, including cubby holes in the floor. People tend to bring a lot of things with them on road trips, and the nooks and crannies for storage help the interior feel a lot less cluttered. All passengers have ample legroom to not feel cramped, which is particularly important for road trips because they require you to sit in the same position for hours on end.
The Dodge Durango also slots nicely into the three-row crossover SUV class of vehicles. The first striking feature of the Dodge Durango is the technology options. Even on standard trims, you get Bluetooth connectivity, a USB port, an SD card reader, and a six-speaker sound system with an auxiliary cable that lets you play your favorite music straight from any device with an audio input port. These basic tech features provide exactly what you need for a road trip. In addition, you can upgrade to an improved 8.4-inch touch screen and Bluetooth audio streaming.
The next redeeming feature that lends the Durango well to use on road trips is the fantastic interior space. Even on the third-row, you never feel remotely uncomfortable. The rear doors open wide to nearly 90 degrees for easy entry and exit.
Not every road trip calls for the increased space in a crossover SUV. Sometimes you just want to go with three close friends or family members on an epic trip in a comfortable and powerful four-door sedan. The Dodge Charger is such a sedan. The Dodge Journey is best suited to an epic statewide road trip as opposed to a cross-country journey.
The available V6 engine provides the ideal balance between power and fuel efficiency with 292 horsepower and 262 pound-feet of torque, which are power ratings that get you to your destination quicker than any crossover SUV. The EPA-estimate using the V6 engine is 30 mpg on the highway, which is impressive given the power you get. The Charger comes with great standard safety features, such as stability control, traction control, a comprehensive advanced air bag system, and a rearview camera.
Choosing any of the above Dodge vehicles ensures an amazing road trip while on the road in addition to at your destinations.
