Journey makers see it important that the SUVs have many safety features for the vehicle's driver and passengers. The Journey provides traction for any winter weather, because you will have electronic stability control, all-speed traction control and Brake assist. The Journey's anti-lock brakes (ABS) will assist you, too. Airbags are very important features that this SUV has, and you will have multi-stage, front-seat mounted, side-curtain and driver's' knee blocker airbags to help people in an accident. You will have active head restraints and electronic roll mitigation. For children you will have a LATCH child seat anchor system. If you would like to tow equipment behind the SUV, trailer-sway control will restrict the trailer's movement to make for a safe trip for passengers and people driving behind the SUV.
