click above image to view new high-res pics of the 2009 Dodge Journey

We're still divided on our feelings about the 2009 Dodge Journey, and after reading the comments can tell that many of you are, too. To help us decide one way or the other, Dodge has released some new pics of the CUV, all of which show the vehicle being driven on the open road. Truthfully, these shots were conspicuously absent from the batch we received when the Journey was unveiled a few days ago, as it always helps when judging a design to see it in the environment we expect it to be used.

The design of the 2009 Journey is by far the safest introduced by Dodge in a long time. This is the brand that brought us the Charger, Avenger, Nitro and Caliber, all of which stand out in their segments for better or worse. Perhaps Dodge knows that the CUV market is ripe, and just offering a product in the segment will attract sales. With that in mind, they may have settled on the design that was least offensive to the masses in order to maximize sales.

      Is it just me that see Ford Freestyle designed being copied here - or today's Ford Taurus X. Why are designers doing this?

      Any one notice they stole the 2nd row seat design from GM's lambdas (Acadia, Outlook, Enclave)?

      you know, the cross-over is a family car in its type, but it is no sense to set the limits on the car, cause it will satisfy the demands of the pickiest customer.

      I kind of like it. I can't quite discern the size of it though. They should have had something like this upon the intro of the Sebring/Avenger, and also should have toned down the styling of those to be be more like this.

        What's up with the interior's of most Chyrsler products. They all look the same. My 06 Commander is supposed to be tan but looks grey. It's so much grey hard plastic in most of their cars and trucks. Anything that is coming out now is still a result of the "old" Chrysler. Hopefully the "new" Chrysler will get the interiors looking much better real soon!

      Looks better for it's market than most Autobloggers will give it credit for. It's good to see more manufacturers putting out wagons, even if they are marketed like crossovers. Taurus X *cough*

      Already looks 7 years old...
      May as well just get the Nitro if you absolutely need a Chrysler product...

      This is just another biiiig yawn from Chrysler.
      I'd say the same thing regardless of the logo on the grille, btw.

      It doesn't look anywhere as nice as my Pacifica...but I hope their sales numbers can do better. It would be interesting to see how big (how small) it really is.
