New 2017 Dodge Journey – Release Date and Review

The new 2017 Dodge Journey could what you’re looking for if you’ve been searching for a sensible three-row crossover SUV that parks a cinch and is family-friendly. Furthermore, it comes laden with features such as a practical interior, budget friendly pricing, an upgraded 8.4” infotainment touchscreen, an available V6 engine, and a feature-packed cabin. The Dodge Journey 2017 release date should be expected sometime late this year, at least according to various credible sources.

2017 Dodge Journey side view, gray color, alloy wheels

I guess the first thing that immediately came to your mind upon seeing this review is ‘is the Dodge Journey still on sale?’ Yes indeed, it is. Much of its exterior and interior has been updated and now looks modern, but that can’t completely hide the fact that the Journey is somehow antiquated especially looking at its technology offerings and performance.

2017 Dodge Journey rear view, taillights and badges

Granted, the Journey has been on the market for quite some time now, and during this time, newer and fresher models have all undergone complete redesigns to remain competitive in this cut-throat competition arena. Much of the designs that the Journey offers are still synonymous with the model that debuted way back in 2009.

2017 Dodge Journey exterior, front view, headlights, badges and grille

To its credit, however, the Dodge Journey 2017 still offers some positive attributes that have been fundamental to it ever since it debuted on the market. Some of these include a quiet interior, a smooth ride quality even in some of the unforgiving road conditions, a competitive pricing package, and comfortable and supportive seats.

2017 Dodge Journey exterior, side view, red color, alloy wheels

In other respects however, time has apparently not been that kind. The two engines available beneath its hood are mediocre and that is an understatement. Beyond the performance, the fuel economy ratings aren’t impressive, the technologies are dated, and the handling is imprecise.

2017 Dodge Journey exterior, rear view, taillights and alloy wheels

There’re other alternatives in the market, hopefully. Some if these include the Kia Sorento, and Dodge’s own Grand Caravan. The 2017 Kia Sorento price starts from $25,100. Some if the appealing highlights that keep buyers coming back include user-friendly controls, excellent crash tests scores, ample features for the money, a versatile second-row seat, an attractive cabin, and a long warranty. Besides the features, it comes with a 185-horsepower – generating 2.4L four-cylinder engine beneath the hood of the base model. The Kia Sorento 2017 release date should be expected sometime in the first quarter of 2017.

2017 Dodge Durango – Release Date, Specs & Info

The new 2017 Dodge Durango is a worth a consideration for anyone looking for a large family crossover SUV. Its styling is impressive, and so is its performance thanks to a brawny V8 engine. Throw in a spacious interior and plenty of equipment, and you’re assured your family will be taken care of whenever they’re cruising on the highway. The Dodge Durango 2017 review below is detailed on whatever you might need to know. 

2017 Dodge Durango Release Date & Price

2017 Dodge Durango release date

Details of its release date and price are still shelved, as of the time of this writing, however, this hasn’t stopped the industry experts from discussing the possibilities. The most probable time we can expect the refreshed Durango may be sometime in the second half of 2017. Pricing, according to the same sources, should be expected to deviate much from the current base MSRP that starts from $30,000.

Review

2017 Dodge Durango side view, gray color, alloy wheels

You can’t deny the fact that crossover SUVs are slowly but steadily supplanting family sedans as the preferred mode of transport for the American family. Indeed, these three-row crossovers have the formula that make them so: spacious interior, potent engines beneath the hood, and you’re spoilt for choice when it comes to the available features and equipment. They’re the modern versions of wood-trimmed station wagons and minivans.

2017 Dodge Durango spy shots

Competition has grown ferociously over the last couple of years, and traditional vehicles like the 2017 Dodge Durango have found themselves in a tight spot due to their rather dated features relative to newer and fresher models that reek of sophistication and features wealth. The 2017 Dodge Durango however, has been rejuvenated and now boasts of several new features and equipment that Dodge hopes will help it retain its position at the helm of its class.

2017 Dodge Durango front angle, headlights and grille

Like before, the Durango offers an old-fashioned American muscle, ample amount of personality, and a freshening exterior style. The basic Durango albeit a bit so-so in terms of the available features, coughing extra bucks will definitely offer you an ample amount of bells and whistles which are offered as options.

2017 Dodge Durango rear view, taillights and tailpipe

In terms of practicality, the newest breed of Durango comes with copious amounts of passenger and cargo space. The third row is comfortable even for adults – a rarity for three-row crossover SUVs. However, the third-row becomes cramped when the eighth seat is added to the mix. The standard seating is for seven passengers.

2017 Dodge Durango front view, headlights and alloy wheels

There are reasons that give the Dodge Durango a “B” rating though. Granted, the Durango manages to offer a distinctive mix of personality and practicality in abundant measure. However, its significant weigh and massive size negate some very valuable aspects such as handling, acceleration, fuel economy, and maneuverability. This flipsides are some of the reasons why it makes sense to consider vehicles such as the Toyota Highlander 2017, Mazda CX-9, and the Honda Pilot for 2017 for people who can’t afford to give away such aspects that the Durango fails in.

Other vehicles you can consider include Ford Expedition, and Chevrolet Tahoe.

Its road manners are refined and dos a great job of smoothening out rough road conditions without sending shivers and shakes to its occupants thanks in part to the coil-spring rear suspension system. A serious nitpicking mission has nonetheless yielded several reasons any would-be buyer should be aware of. The towing capacity is modest by conventional methods, and the infotainment system is rather flimsy.2017 Dodge Ram 1500 Rebel exterior, auto show, alloy wheels

New 2017 Dodge Ram 1500 – Release Date, Specs & Info

In the full-size pickup segment, the new 2017 Dodge Ram 1500 is a top contender, no doubt, courtesy of its award-winning like combination of features such as a supple, ride quality, useful tech features, a refined and quiet cabin, and an excellent eight-speed automatic transmission system. The Dodge Ram 1500 release date should be expected sometime this fall or early 2017.

Despite having had its last full redesign seven years ago, the 2017 Dodge Ram 1500 has managed to keep its cool. From the remarkable supple ride quality, upscale interior materials, to the easy-to-use infotainment system, there’s an abundance of features to make up for the general lack of freshness.

All major players in this segment – 2017 Chevrolet Silverado, Ford F-150, GMC Sierra, and 2017 Toyota Tundra – have all undergone a thorough makeover in recent years. But even so, the RAM 1500 refinement belie its age. We still highly encourage anyone looking for a serious pickup truck to give it more than just the benefit of the doubt.

One aspect that is seemingly unchanged on the latest Dodge Ram 1500 is its smooth ride quality and the impressive cabin appointment. It soaks bumps and flattens out mundane road conditions like it is nobody’s business courtesy in part to the coil-spring rear suspension system.

Besides that, the Ram 1500 changes are minimal but welcome. The interior sees some several upgrades to the technologies such as the infotainment system and driver aides. The seats are also covered in a rich materials that you’d be lucky to find in other trucks in its class, and the overall interior ambience reeks of comfort.

Although the 2017 Dodge Ram 1500 is one of our favorites in its class, its lack of freshness even in the face of growing hostility from its foes makes it hard for us to fully recommend it to would-be truck drivers. As such, it would be prudent to check what the segment offers as viable alternatives. They include the GMC Sierra, Chevrolet Silverado, Toyota Tundra, and the “A” rated Ford F-150.

2017 Dodge RAM 1500 engine

Dodge hasn’t said anything about what lurks beneath the hood of the Dodge Ram 1500 2017, however, our assumptions are that it will still come with some of the existing ones including the base 3.6L gasoline V6, the 5.7L V8, and the turbocharged 3.0L diesel V6. The base V6 engine is rated at 305 horsepower and 269 lbs. ft. of torque, the 5.7L V8 at 395 hp and 410 pounds-feet of torque, and the turbocharged diesel V6 engine at 240 hp and 420 pounds-feet of torque.

2017 Dodge Challenger – Release Date, News and Rumors

The all-new 2017 Dodge Challenger may perhaps the most hyped American muscle coupe available today. For starters, most respect for the Challenger comes from its power offerings. It comes in a wide array of trim models that offer anything ranging from an output of around 305 horsepower for the base Challenger SXT up to the stonking Challenger Hellcat that offers a nuclear 707 horsepower from a mammoth supercharged 6.2L V8 engine.

True, the newest Dodge Challenger 2017 may lack corner-taking abilities in comparison to its foes, but it manages to counter its inadequacies with superior comfort and practicality. It’s all-rounded and it’s downright awesome just like the models before it. Much of its appeal, in addition to the above-mentioned specs, comes from its strong engines, a relatively supple ride, a highly customizable interior, an enormous trunk, spacious passenger space for four adults, and a superb infotainment system.

For the legion of Dodge fans out there, our stating that the Dodge Challenger is awesome probably comes as an affirmation than a surprise. Indeed, the vehicle has been a hit ever since it debuted on the market. But besides the power and an-all American flare, its practicality is something deserving of praise. The backseat is adult-friendly unlike those of its peers. Furthermore, the cargo volume is voluptuous and merits a thumbs-up from cynics.
