2016 Dodge JourneyAt Knight Weyburn CDJR, we know our drivers in Indian Head and Melville will be impressed by everything that the 2016 Dodge Journey has to offer. With two engine options that are as versatile as they are powerful, they can take you from the day-to-day grind to the weekend road trip. Let’s take a look at the efficiency, output, and other qualities of each of the 2016 Dodge Journey engines.

3.6L Pentastar

One option is the 3.6L Pentastar VVT V6 engine. As a three-time winner of Ward’s “10 Best Engines” this engine does not disappoint. With a robust performance that delivers up to 283 hp and 260 lb-ft of torque, you’re getting an engine that is both strong and refined. It is paired with a 6-speed automatic transmission that shifts seamlessly and has a semi-manual mode for added driver control. And the fuel economy is also impressive, coming in at 14.2 L/100 km in the city and 9.4 L/100 km on the highway in 2WD models.


The second engine option is a 2.4L DOHC 16V Dual VVT I-4 engine. With that under the hood, you’re getting up to 173 hp and 166 lb-ft of torque. It works in tandem with a 4-speed automatic transmission that uses a torque management system and fully adaptive electronic control for a smooth and dynamic performance. This engine is the most efficient option, with a fuel economy as good as 12.7 L/100 km in the city and 9.1 L/100 km on the highway.
