The Dodge Journey that we drove for a full year and 20 000 km has now received a spec update. The 2,7-litre V6 has been replaced with a more powerful 3,6-litre increasing power output from 136 kWto 206 kW. This gives it great grunt for towing as well as for coping with high altitudes. The engine remains transversely mounted with a six-speed gearbox and front-wheel drive only for SA.
