As well as undercutting rivals on price, and offering bags of family-friendly kit as standard, experts from EurotaxGlass’s predict that the Dodge Journey will be worth an impressive 41 per cent of its purchase price in three years time.

EurotaxGlass’s – publisher of Glass’s Guide – has predicted strong residual values for the new Dodge Journey compared to its competitors*.  The company’s Market Intelligence Unit (EGMIU) predicts that the Dodge Journey 2.0CRD SXT is likely to retain 41 per cent of its original price over a three-year and 60,000 mile period.

Jason King, Head of Market Intelligence at EurotaxGlass’s, comments:  “As the marque’s first MPV offering within the UK, the Journey is a unique addition to the current Dodge line-up and elevates the brand to a more mainstream positioning within the automotive market.

“Dodge’s bold and signature SUV-styling – combined with the high levels of specification and functionality expected of an MPV – give added presence.  Yet the vehicle is still easily identifiable as an MPV, combining both style and practicality.”

King adds:  “Competitive list prices indicate that the Journey will be a serious rival for its key competitors.”

The front-wheel drive Dodge Journey has 5+2 seating as standard across the range and features including a tilt and slide flexible seating system; spacious under-floor storage bins and under-seat storage areas; rear doors that open to 90-degrees for easy access when installing child seats; a rear conversation mirror and climate control that operates in all three rows.

The new Dodge Journey comes with a choice of a 2.4-litre petrol engine or a 2.0-litre diesel engine. The diesel engine is available with either a manual or dual-clutch automatic gearbox and will return up to 43.5 mpg (combined cycle).

*EurotaxGlass's predicts that the Ford S-Max 2.0 TDi Zetec is worth 41 per cent of its original price after 36 months/60,000 miles.
