Dodge recently released a value package for their Dodge Journey crossover. The package was called the V6 Value Package (dealer code 28D), which offered Dodge Journey SE buyers a chance to get the 283 horsepower 3.6-liter Pentastar V6 on the front-wheel drive version of popular crossover. This package also equipped the Journey with the “performance front and rear fascias”, which is the front end and rear bumper found on the higher trim level Journeys. The package also included fog lights, touring suspension, LED “ring of fire” tail lights, ParkView rear backup camera, auto-dimming rear view mirror with display and 17-inch wheel covers.
