2011 Dodge Journey Test Drive

By Bob Plunkett

A particularly warped and winding section of California's Pacific Coast Highway north of San Francisco runs along the eastern side of Tomales Bay while passing through crossroads communities like Marconi and Hamlet on the way to Tomales.

Coursing over humpback hills and cutting acute-angled corners to chase the ragged shore, this twisty ribbon of asphalt serves us well to show off the sticky four-wheeling agility of one sporty new crossover utility vehicle (CUV) built by Dodge.

A chrome badge on the tail-side hatch door reveals the name:  Journey.

Dodge originally rolled out the Journey for the Class of 2009 with front-wheel-drive (FWD) traction or optional all-wheel-drive (AWD) for three different versions -- the price-leader Journey SE, an upscale Journey SXT edition and a sport-tuned Journey R/T (the initials signify "Road and Track" in recognition of Dodge's muscle car heritage).

Scroll your calendar forward for two years and you'll discover that Journey for the Class of 2011 gets tuned and tweaked in a major overhaul with a redesigned and retuned suspension, a new optional V6 powertrain and handsome new fittings for the passenger compartment. [Full Review]
