Making a Choice between Spacious Dodge Journey and Off-Roader Jeep Cherokee
A quick look at the Dodge Journey is enough to recognize monetary value of this spacious SUV but the moment buyers see the Jeep Cherokee, you’re forced to reconsider their decision of buying Journey.
If you’re looking for a vehicle that has the qualities of a SUV and space of a minivan then look no further than the 2016 Dodge Journey Toronto. It is a perfect pick for family and this is evident from its features.
You’ll appreciate the interior design that creates more storage bins and pockets than any other vehicle. But highlight of the interior space are the cubby holes in the floor. Front seats are wide and second row accommodation can’t be better than Journey. The seats come with features like the seats can be raked or slide according to needs. The third-row seat comes with separate air-conditioner and it is foldable to create space for cargo. Lower all the seats and you’ve 67.6 cubic feet of cargo space available.
A 2.4L four-cylinder engine with 173 hp and 166 pound-feet of torque is standard on Journey. The engine matches with the 4-speed automatic transmission and its economy is rated at 21 mpg combined. But experts recommend the improved 3.6L V6 with 283 hp and 260 lb-ft of torque. It has a 6-speed auto transmission and it comes with FWD and AWD options.
“Dodge Journey Toronto is a good choice for family but those, who’re interested in a vehicle that is good at off-roading as well would find new Jeeps for sale in Toronto more suitable to their needs than the Journey”, says Scarsviewchrysler.ca.
Jeep is an off-roader but the new Jeeps like 2016 Cherokee are more civilized than their predecessors. The 2016 Cherokee can be summed up as a family vehicle with off-roading capabilities. It is good for family trips as well as for daily grind.
Small item storage in the interior is good and seating comfort is ultra-luxurious. Wide front seats provide extra legroom and also there is much space between the first row and second row seating. Behind the second row, there is 24.6 cubic feet of cargo space and with the rear seat folding, the space increases to 54.9 cubic feet. If third row seat isn’t a big concern and also you are ready to spend some more dollars then consider buying 2016 Cherokee.
It is where the 2016 Cherokee gets an edge over the Journey. Cherokee packs a powerful 2.4L inline-4 engine that thunders 184 hp and builds a torque of 171 pound-feet. Also there is an optional engine choice that is a 3.2L V6 with 271 hp and 239 lb-ft of torque. Both the engines are coupled with a nine-speed automatic transmission and the buyers also get a choice of FWD and AWD with both the engines.
“Space conscious families can choose the 2016 Journey but those, who appreciate design, power and performance, find new Jeeps for sale in Toronto like 2016 Cherokee good for their needs”, adds Scarsviewchrysler.ca.
Journey provides third-row comfort at a pocket friendly price. It has more storage space than the Jeep but if you drive Jeep then you won’t be convinced to buy a third-row crossover SUV.
