Interior room of the 2017 Dodge Journey

When you are buying an SUV like the Dodge Journey for your family, you are bound to have some questions on your mind. You want to know how much room it has, how many passengers it can seat, and how much it can tow. We will answer all of those questions as we dive into the interior room of the 2017 Dodge Journey.

Seating capacity of the Dodge Journey

The Dodge Journey really is an SUV made for families, and it comes standard with seating for five people. However, if you would like to have room for more people, then the Dodge Journey can provide with the optional Flexible Seating Group package.

With the Flexible Seating Group Package, the Dodge Journey gets a third row seat that supports two additional people. That rear seat also has a 50 / 50 split fold to keep the interior adaptable. This package is available on the SE Plus, SXT, Crossroad, and GT trim levels.

Dodge Journey cargo capacity

The huge Journey interior  provides up to 3,810 litres of interior room in the five-passenger configuration and 3,794 litres of interior room in the seven-passenger configuration. With all the seats up you still have a ton of cargo room with 1,122 litres behind the second row in the five-person configuration and 303 litres behind the third row in the seven-person configuration.

Now where you get the real cargo capacity is when you fold all the seats down, which again is different depending on whether or not you opted for the third row that we mentioned above. The five-person configuration offers a maximum cargo volume of 1,914 litres and the seven-person configuration offers 1,048 litres of cargo volume.

How much can the Dodge Journey tow?

Believe it or not, the Dodge Journey has towing capacity, and it’s impressive. The towing capacity depends on your engine choice. If you go with the 2.4-litre engine, then you end up with an impressive 450 kilograms of towing capacity, but with the 3.6-litre Pentastar V6, you get 1,134 kilograms of towing capacity.
