On our Dodge, the alloy wheels will be of 19 inches and it will be less curvy and sharper than we’ve seen it. The headlights on the new Dodge will be pointier than before. As Journey is a vehicle intended firstly for families, its interior will be spacious no doubt there. It will be equipped with latest technology and safety systems such as Dual Zone Control and various airbags. Even though it’s a family car, its interior will be elegant and breathtaking as ever.
