Does the Dodge Journey use Brake Assist?

When brake assist technology first came out in 1996, the idea of a program assisting a driver to apply brakes was dismissed. However, as auto manufacturers slowly accepted the idea of brake assist, accidents caused by late or weak braking declined. Insurance companies were the first to respond with premium breaks for cars with brake assist. Consumer demand did the rest.

The 2018 Dodge Journey uses a brake assist program that works in tandem with the anti-lock brake system (ABS). The brake assist learns from the driver’s braking habits. Over time, the program learns the difference between braking for a stop light and braking for a child that suddenly dashes into the road. In an emergency, the brake assist applies intense intermittent pressure to the brake calipers until the car comes to a stop.
