This is a 6-cylinder engine, and it comes with some advantages for those seeking a balance of power and practicality.

What is a V6? 

This engine has six cylinders (three on each side) arranged in a V-shape. A fuel injector sprays gas into the containers, and a spark plug ignites the liquid. The resulting combustion activates a piston, which, in turn, powers the motor. 

More Power

The Dodge Journey’s V6 engine, like most of its type, serves up more horsepower and torque than a 4-cylinder option, which makes it useful for those who need extra speed, better acceleration, and greater towing muscle. 

Compact Design

V6s are also more compact than so-called straight-sixes (where the cylinders aren’t arranged in a V-shape). Due to their layout, they can fit into a tighter space, making a smaller overall engine bay possible. 


V6 engines also provide a fuel-efficient alternative to larger V8s, making them a great middle option for drivers who want power but need a measure of practicality, as well.
