<a href="https://renfrewchrysler.com/inventory#/?&orderBy=5&asc=1&t=0&filter=[New%2CRAM%2C1500%2C%2C%2C%2C%2C%2C%2C%2C%2C%2C%2C%2C%2C%2C%2C%2C%2C%2C%2C]"><img src="images/upload/July_2021/Competitor/2021-ram-1500-interior.jpg"alt="Interior of 2021 Ram 1500 in tan and blue, with the rear seats reclined"/></a>Performance proves more than engine outputs and efficiency ratings. Instead comfort is needed - with Alberta drivers demanding ample cabin dimensions. The pick-up market, they argue, can no longer be exempt from everyday convenience.

Ram agrees. This is why it’s paired the 2021 1500 with a spacious interior - allowing passengers to experience the comfort they deserve. Within the standard crew cab discover a six-rider configuration, with generous proportions offered across both rows:

 
2021 Ram 1500: Measurements
Head Room: 40.9 inches, 39.8 inches
Leg Room: 40.9 inches, 45.2 inches
Hip Room: 63.4 inches, 63.4 inches

The interior of the new 1500 has been carefully crafted, with Ram emphasizing passenger comfort. Pair its spacious design with plush cloth seating, a leather-wrapped steering wheel, and four-way adjusters to assure an optimum highway experience. This pick-up won’t disappoint.

Its rival - the 2021 Chevrolet Silverado 1500 - might, however. Despite sharing a similar crew cab design, this platform proves less accommodating for passengers: particularly in regards to hip room (61.18 inches, 60.24 inches) and rear leg room (43.4 inches). Second row riders may find themselves struggling to enjoy the adventure.

Curious about how the new Ram 1500 compares to the Chevy Silverado? Contact our team today for further information.

Massive engines demand equally massive amounts of fuel, after all.

With the release of the 2021 1500, however, Alberta drivers are able to receive a reprieve at the pump - with this model earning up to 20 MPG in the city and 25 MPG on the highway. How does it achieve such a high rating? Ram has paired it with two key technologies:

 
One - A standard 3.6L Pentastar V6 engine anchors the 1500. This block utilizes both variable valve timing and revised thermal management to enhance sequencing. It’s been carefully tuned to optimize fuel distribution, while its eight-speed automatic transmission seamlessly bolsters every rev.

Two - Active grille shutters flank the front of the new 1500. These (when complemented by a precisely sculpted hood) help to reduce overall drag, redirecting currents as needed to improve aerodynamics. 

These technologies combine to assure maximum economy, allowing the 2021 1500 to achieve a top-tier MPG rating. It also promises total pump domination over the new Tundra. Toyota’s gas-guzzling V8 earns only 13 MPG in the city and 17 MPG on the highway - forcing drivers to frequently stop their adventures and fill-up. Fun will be compromised.

Regardless of what you use your vehicle for, if you spend a lot of time in it, you will want a quality infotainment system. How do these two SUVs compare when it comes to keeping you entertained? 

Dodge Journey Crossroad

Multimedia Screen: 8.4-inch touchscreen
CD/MP3 Player: Included
Steering Wheel Controls: Standard
Connectivity: Bluetooth and USB
Satellite Radio: SiriusXM (1-year subscription included)

Subaru Forester 2.5i

Multimedia Screen: 6.2-inch touchscreen
CD/MP3 Player: Included
Steering Wheel Controls: Included
Connectivity: Bluetooth and USB
Satellite Radio: SiriusXM (3-month subscription included)

The Journey comes out ahead in this comparison with its larger touchscreen and better content options. It also stands out from the Subaru in terms of overall interior comfort and quality. The Crossroad trim has Liquid Graphite accents and attractive ambient lighting. 

You also get enough space to handle seven passengers over three rows. Since the rear seats have a split-folding design, you can easily accommodate both cargo and people. 

If you think the three-row Dodge Journey Crossroad is the right vehicle for you, contact our Calgary, AB dealership today. We can help you schedule a test drive and let you know about additional models that will fit your needs.
<a href="https://renfrewchrysler.com/inventory#/?&orderBy=1&t=0&filter=[Used%2CDodge%2CJourney%2C%2C%2C%2C%2C%2C%2C%2C%2C%2C%2C%2C%2C%2C%2C%2C%2C%2C%2C]"><img src="/images/upload/June_2021/Dodge_Journey_Power_vs_Subaru.png"alt="Back view of 2018 Dodge Journey driving on snow with mountains in the background"/></a>The 2018 Dodge Journey Crossroad AWD and Subaru Forester 2.5i offer lots of value with 4x4 drivetrains and plenty of passenger space. However, when it comes to power and muscle-requiring tasks like towing, one of this pair stands out above the other.

Here is a look at the power specifications of the 2018 Dodge Journey Crossroad AWD and the 2018 Subaru Forester 2.5i.

2018 Dodge Journey Crossroad

Engine
: 3.6L V6
Drivetrain: AWD
Transmission: 6-speed automatic
Horsepower: 283 hp
Torque: 260 lb.-ft

2018 Subaru Forester 2.5i

Engine
: 2.5L H-4
Drivetrain: AWD
Transmission: CVT
Horsepower: 182 hp
Torque: 176 lb.-ft

The V6 engine on the 2018 Dodge Journey Crossroad excels when it comes to towing. It can pull a trailer weighing 1,134 kg. The Subaru Forester doesn’t come close with its 680-kg hauling capacity.

The Journey Crossroad can handle almost any recreational or household towing task, but it also beats the Forester when it comes to transporting people. The Dodge can hold up to seven passengers in its three rows. The Subaru, on the other hand, only has five seats. 

If you would like to check the availability of the 2018 Dodge Journey Crossroad, contact our Calgary dealership today. We can also help you schedule a test drive in the pre-owned vehicle of your choice.
<a href="https://renfrewchrysler.com/inventory#/?&orderBy=1&t=0&filter=[Used%2CDodge%2CJourney%2C%2C%2C%2C%2C%2C%2C%2C%2C%2C%2C%2C%2C%2C%2C%2C%2C%2C%2C]"><img src="/images/upload/June_2021/Dodge_Journey_V6.png"alt="A 2018 Dodge Journey driving down an urban road between tall buildings with its headlamps on"/></a>A high-quality powertrain brings a better driving experience. For an SUV, it can also help with utility tasks like towing. Two of the more popular used options in Alberta, Canada are the 2018 Dodge Journey and the 2018 Nissan Rogue. How do these two compare when you look under the hood?

Dodge Journey Crossroads AWD

Engine
: 3.6L V6
Horsepower: 283 hp
Torque: 260 lb.-ft
Transmission: 6-speed automatic
Drivetrain: AWD
Suspension: Strut (front)/Multi-Link (Rear)

Nissan Rogue

Engine
: 2.5L I-4
Horsepower: 170 hp
Torque: 175 lb.-ft
Transmission: Continuous Variable Transmission (CVT)
Drivetrain: AWD
Suspension: Strut (front)/Multi-Link (Rear)

The 2018 Journey wins the comparison with the Rogue when it comes to power, but its positive attributes don't end with its 283-hp V6 engine. The Dodge's six-speed automatic transmission provides a better driving experience, and it is more reliable than the Nissan's CVT.

The 2018 Dodge Journey also comes with a full range of safety and security features. Its tire-pressure monitoring system helps you avoid flats and blowouts, while the Senty Key anti-theft immobilizer keeps someone else from trying to start your SUV. 

If you are interested in a capable used SUV, contact our Calgary dealership to check the availability of the V6-powered 2018 Dodge Journey.
<a href="https://renfrewchrysler.com/inventory#/?&orderBy=1&t=0&filter=[Used%2CDodge%2CJourney%2C%2C%2C%2C%2C%2C%2C%2C%2C%2C%2C%2C%2C%2C%2C%2C%2C%2C%2C]"><img src="/images/upload/June_2021/2018_Dodge_Journey_cargo.png"alt="Two people unloading camping cargo from a 2018 Dodge Journey in a forest"/></a>The 2018 Dodge Journey Crossroad and the 2018 Nissan Rogue are capable AWD SUVs. Though they can both conquer inclement weather, they perform differently when it comes to utility tasks like towing and transporting passengers. 

Here is how the seven-person Dodge Journey and five-seat Nissan Rogue compare when it comes to hauling. 

Dodge Journey Crossroad

Engine
: 3.6L V6
Horsepower: 283 hp
Torque: 260 lb.-ft
Transmission: 6-speed automatic
Drivetrain: AWD
Maximum Towing Capacity: 1,1334 kg

Nissan Rogue

Engine
: 2.5L I-4
Horsepower: 170 hp
Torque: 175 lb.-ft
Transmission: Continuous Variable Transmission (CVT)
Drivetrain: AWD
Maximum Towing Capacity: 500 kg

The Dodge Journey Crossroad stands out in this comparison. It is a more capable option for hauling for recreation or household purposes. The seven-seat SUV is also superior to the Nissan Rogue in terms of safety. It comes with Electronic Stability and Traction Control. If you take advantage of its towing prowess, then you will appreciate the Trailer Sway Control, which is standard on this trim.

 Even if you do not attach a trailer, you still get plenty of cargo-carrying ability. The back rows in the 2021 Dodge Journey Crossroad fold down to create 1,914 L of open space in the interior.

If you would like to learn more about the 2018 Dodge Journey, contact our Calgary dealership today.
<a href="https://renfrewchrysler.com/inventory#/?&orderBy=1&t=0&filter=[Used%2CDodge%2CJourney%2C%2C%2C%2C%2C%2C%2C%2C%2C%2C%2C%2C%2C%2C%2C%2C%2C%2C%2C]"><img src="/images/upload/June_2021/Dodge_journey_interior.png"alt="The interior of a 2018 Dodge Journey with leather black seats and a park outside the windows"/></a>Both the 2018 Dodge Journey and the 2018 Nissan Rogue provide ample interior space. However, if you are transporting family members, co-workers, or friends regularly, the size of the rear rows will be vitally important.

Here is how these two SUVs compare when it comes to offering comfort to those in the back seats. 

2018 Dodge Journey

(First/Second/Third Rows)
Passenger Capacity: 7
Headroom: 1036 mm/1013 mm/958 mm
Hip Room: 1366 mm/1382 mm/1016 mm

2018 Nissan Rogue

(First/Second/Third Rows)
Passenger Capacity: 5
Headroom: 1057 mm/978 mm/Not available
Hip Room: 1372 mm/1323 mm/Not available

The 2018 Dodge Journey doesn’t just offer a high-capacity interior compared to the 2018 Nissan Rogue, but a more versatile one, as well. You can easily convert it from a seven-person SUV to a five-seater by turning down the 60/40 split-folding second-row. 

Also, you can retract the back bench and enjoy up to 1,914 litres of cargo space on the inside of the SUV. This capacity is an excellent supplement to the maximum 1,133 kg of weight that the 2018 Dodge Journey is capable of towing.  

To inquire about availability, learn more about the interior size, or schedule a test drive in the 2018 Dodge Journey, contact our Calgary dealership today.
