The 2013 Dodge Journey release comes with a couple of different engine sizes. There are several models available, including the American Value Sport Utility, the SXT Sport Utility, the Crew Sport Utility, and the R/T Sport Utility. The American Value Sport and SXT Sport Utility have engines that are 2.4L with 173 horsepower.
The R/T Sport Utility and Crew Sport Utility have larger, more powerful engines, with 3.6L and 283 horsepower. These engines are all classified as DOHC. This means they have a dual overhead cam, or a double overhead cam, as some indicate. This feature is increasingly common in newer cars, as is variable valve timing capability. These features can affect a car’s performance dramatically. Before these features were available, the load that cars carried, or the speed at which they were driven, drastically affected the car’s drivability, because the intervals used by the cars valves were fixed. With variable valve timing, the valves can self-adjust as needed to deliver the best performance no matter the speed or load. The dual overhead cam means there is room for additional valves, making it easier to have more balanced car performance.
These engines have a higher-than-average compression ratio. The compression ratio determines how efficient the engine is at using the fuel it receives. This higher compression ratio means that the engine compresses the fuel more completely than engines with lower ratios, and overall the fuel burns more cleanly. Engines with these higher ratios do, however, have a greater tendency to “knock”, or give off a pinging sound, when the wrong kind of fuel is used. This knock can be damaging to the engine, so it is important to use fuel with the correct octane levels.
This model has a history of using the in-line four engine. The in-line four engine can also be referred to as a straight engine, and has all of its valves set together in a single, straight line. These engines have a simpler design than other kinds of engines, but they can vibrate during operation. In smaller vehicles, this vibration is unlikely to be felt, but drivers of cars with larger or heavier engines will experience the vibration more strongly.
