Dodge revealed today the first images of the 2011 Journey. This family car is upgraded significantly over the previous model, and the best place to feel this improvement is inside its cabin. The interior of the new Journey not only looks much better, but also seems to be made of much higher quality materials than before. Looks like Americans finally realized how to do interiors!
The center console gets a lot of extra cushion on the tilt-and-slide armrest. Lift the lid, and there’s a larger center storage bin with a 12-volt outlet and USB port where owners can hook up their MP3/iPod charging connections and hide them away.
One very nice feature of this interior, is the available touch-screen command center, Uconnect Touch. From navigation to dual-zone climate controls to the ability to check fuel prices, the all-new Uconnect Touch media center makes life in the new 2011 Dodge Journey an excellent adventure for the driver and passengers. Four Uconnect Touch models are available, all featuring easy-to-use controls and class-leading technology.
