How Dodge gave out my phone number to America

This weekend, Dodge bombarded America's football viewers with commercials advertising clues to find one of three free Dodge Journey crossovers hidden across the country. Unfortunately for one New Yorker, the last clue was his phone number. But he had nothing to do with the contest. Dodge Marketing FAIL. UPDATE! » 9/26/11 3:00pm 9/26/11 3:00pm

2010 Dodge Journey SRT... Wait, What?

We're thinking these images of a Dodge Journey wearing manufacturer plates, new rims and "SRT R/T" badging is an elaborate plan to fool us into thinking Chrysler has something... anything in the product development plan. Or just engineers being funny. » 12/14/09 1:30pm 12/14/09 1:30pm

Chrysler Recalling 38% Of Dodge Journeys, Was It Our Video?

If you purchased a 2009 Dodge Journey with the 3.5-Liter V6 (which is the one you want, trust us), you'll hopefully be getting a call from Chrysler before you have to place a call to the fire department. Apparently, the engine wiring harness is at risk of coming into contact with the left transaxle mount, which could… » 6/17/08 9:40am 6/17/08 9:40am

2009 Dodge Journey, The Film

For those who enjoyed 2009 Volkswagen Jetta Sportwagen, Der Film, we present the latest in our series of Jalopnik Original Productions: The Journey, a tale of love and rejection in the 2009 Dodge Journey. We hope Christopher Walken is proud. » 6/12/08 12:30pm 6/12/08 12:30pm

2009 Dodge Journey SXT, Part Three

Why you should buy the 2009 Dodge Journey SXT:
You need a mid-level, V6-powered SUV/crossover that looks better than a Toyota Highlander and gets better gas mileage than a Honda Pilot, and it has to have more cargo area than a Nissan Murano but it also needs to cost less than a Ford Edge, and you're okay with having… » 6/11/08 12:00pm 6/11/08 12:00pm

2009 Dodge Journey SXT, Part Two

Exterior Design: ***
The 2009 Dodge Journey is without a doubt one of the better looking cars in the Dodge lineup. But, that's not saying much. The sharp profile and muscular fender flares manage to hide the crossover's stubby dimensions while the cheaters on the B- and C-pillars also keep the shorter greenhouse from… » 6/10/08 12:00pm 6/10/08 12:00pm

2009 Dodge Journey, Part One

With marriage looming, fatherhood has become an ever-increasing possibility, albeit one that is still far enough away that I can justify spending money on myself. When that day does come though, I'd like to think that I'd be the cool dad with the awesome wagon. However, increasingly competent crossovers are starting… » 6/09/08 12:00pm 6/09/08 12:00pm

2009 Dodge Journey Rockets To First...In Incentives

Chrysler is number one in a very key stat. Unfortunately, it's a terrible one. Yup, the newly-revealed 2009 Dodge Journey has become the first 2009 model from any automaker to see any form of sales incentives. How bad is it that the new egg-mobile crossover-utility- minivan already has a $1000 cash rebate slapped on… » 3/24/08 9:15am 3/24/08 9:15am

Nardelli: Chrysler to Create "Skunk Works" for Mid-Size Vehicle…

Who knew Chrysler would drop so far in the mid-size market that new CEO Bob Nardelli would find it necessary to create a "skunk works" team comprising every piece of the vehicle development process in order to come up with the company's next-generation mid-size vehicles. Apparently the Sebring wasn't quite the bee's… » 1/23/08 6:45am 1/23/08 6:45am

Brenda Priddy Auctions Off Rare Badge For Charity

Everyone's favorite spy photographer, Brenda Priddy (just kidding Hans, we love ya, too) is doing a bit of charity work, perhaps as punishment for bringing us the Hunks of SEMA gallery. All you have to do to help charity is bid on this extremely rare badge from the Dodge Journey, which was originally named the Dodge… » 12/13/07 5:00pm 12/13/07 5:00pm

Frankfurt Auto Show: Dodge Journey

From the I think it might be a minivan department comes the Dodge Journey. After seeing a surprising number of Chrysler minivans on the roads here in Frankfurt, we can see the appeal a space wagon equipped with a 2.0L turbodiesel from the Dodge might have for the European market. David and Danya changed outfits… » 9/11/07 2:15pm 9/11/07 2:15pm

A Trip Back To The Dodge Journey

I've never stopped believing in the Dodge brand, mostly because any car company that could have created something as awesome as the 1979 Dodge Journey has a strong heritage to build upon. You see, the parents of the kid down the street had one and I remember when we would play fortress with it. The Journey had all… » 8/22/07 6:00pm 8/22/07 6:00pm

Dodge "Crew": Now With Interior Photos!

The sneaky spy photographers of KGP happened upon yet another Dodge Crew crossovers out testing in the hot summer sun.
