The 2.4 REALLY needs that double clutch transmission.

Reprogram the 62te to operate as a 5 speed auto.

I wonder if they were using regular instead of mid-grade?

Looks like a fusion of Durango/Caliber/Pacifica to me.
Do we really need yet another SUV/Cross-Over/Mini-Van/Truck thing ?!?!

I think Chrysler got silly with the R/T moniker. R/T means Road and track so where does that apply to vehicles like the Journey, Caliber and even the Pickups?

That aside, the Journey does have some clever features, but the gas mileage is crap. With my SXT I get about 18-19 city, 21 combined (cty/hwy) and I've gotten an honest 26-27 mpg highway using cruise control and keeping it about 63 mph. Driving without cruise and not too agressive, I get about 25 mpg highway. Plus my Magnum has more power and is quicker.

The way I see it, the Journey is going to compete with the minivans. That's it.

I think though in the long run, wagons and hatchbacks are going to start making a comeback. Better mileage, better handling.
