The Dodge Journey is a mid-size crossover SUV that first debuted late in 2008 for the 2009 model year. It has been a major seller for the company since its inception and the 2012 Journey is available in five different models, the AVP, SE, SXT, Crew and R/T. Vehicle transport for a Dodge Journey is the same as it has always been, and in this helpful vehicle transport article we’ll discuss the current 2012 Journey models as well as glance over their key features should you be looking to buy one, as well as what you can expect when it comes to acquiring vehicle transport quotes to ship it.
As stated, the Dodge Journey is currently available in five models. The AVP features a 2.4L 173-hp Straight-4 engine that gets 26 highway mpg, six airbags, anti-lock brakes and electronic stability control, the Uconnect system with a 4.3-inch LCD touchscreen display and available seven-passenger seating. The SE features deep-tint sunscreen glass, LED “ring of fire” taillights, side roof rails and available aluminum wheels. The SXT features an available 3.6L 283-hp Pentastar V6 engine with a six-speed automatic transmission, 26 miles per gallon highway, 17-inch aluminum wheels and fog lamps. The Crew model features 19-inch aluminum wheels, an 8.4-inch Uconnect touch screen media center, a premium audio system and available leather-trimmed interior with heated front seats, and the R/T features a body-color grille, unique 19-inch satin-carbon-aluminum wheels, black leather-trimmed seating with red-accent stitching and a six-speed automatic transmission with AutoStick technology.
The Journey is a mid-size crossover SUV, and because of this some vehicle transport companies charge a nominal overweight/oversize vehicle fee while others simply charge a bit more per mile to ship it. The Journey is sort of on the fence, but most of the time you probably won’t need to pay much over what the base vehicle transport price is like you would if you were shipping, say, a huge cargo van. The base vehicle transport quote is based on the pickup and delivery locations – more specifically, their locations and distance from one another. Vehicle transport companies tend to ship to and from heavily populated areas along major interstate highways, so shipping to or from a city off the beaten path usually costs you a bit more. If you have questions about your vehicle transport price or you’re shipping on a budget, it’s a good idea to give your vehicle transport company a call and see what they can do to help you save some money, if possible.
