SAN ANTONIO, April 30, 2013 /PRNewswire-iReach/ -- When two vehicles have very similar capabilities and performances, it can be difficult to decide which vehicle is the better fit. Both the 2013 Dodge Journey and 2013 Kia Sorento are capable 7-passenger crossovers with the strength and versatility to suit families of all sizes. The 2013 Dodge Journey vs 2013 Kia Sorento is a tough call, but the new Dodge in San Antonio TX, available at Ingram Park CDJ, brings something all its own to San Antonio drivers.


The 2013 Dodge Journey is made for the growing family. Its spacious three rows of seats can fit up to seven people comfortably, but they are also extremely versatile when there is more cargo than passengers. As America's fastest growing crossover, the Journey must keep up with fast-growing American families. Its strong 2.4L I4 engine tops out at 173 horsepower and reaches up to 166 lb-ft of torque while delivering an EPA-estimated fuel economy of 26 mpg hwy. With the ability to journey up to 500 miles on a single tank while towing up to 2,500 pounds, when properly equipped, the Journey makes the most of everything it has to offer.

The 2013 Kia Sorento is a trusted family crossover with space for up to seven passengers. It's third row isn't as spacious, especially if all passengers are transporting extra cargo, but it is still a capable vehicle for larger groups. It is also equipped with a 2.4L I4 engine, which produces up to 191 horsepower and up to an EPA-estimated fuel economy of up to 26 mpg hwy. The vehicle is able to produce that extra bit of power; however, its towing capability is reduced to 1,650 pounds. At a higher cost, the Sorento should be able to offer a little more, but that's where the Journey saves the day.

The Journey was given the marking of a 2013 IIHS Top Safety Pick, as well as the most versatile and affordable 7-passenger crossover in its class. The passenger-centric vehicle has a spacious, luxurious interior and a stylish, yet resilient exterior. Supported by Electronic Stability Control, seven advanced airbags, and other available safety and convenience features, the Journey makes each moment on the road more enjoyable.

The 2013 Dodge Journey is well-rounded in its performance, safety, and appearance. For the full package, drivers can test drive the car in San Antonio TX by contacting Ingram Park CDJ today.
