Dodge Journey Overview

Dodge's humdrum midsized SUV seats five, with an optional third row fitting two kids. Although the 3.6-liter V6 delivers strong performance, we were able to muster only a worst-in-class 16-mpg overall from it in our tests. A thriftier but noisier 2.4-liter engine is available on front-wheel-drive versions. Despite its recently updated interior appointments, the Journey remains mediocre overall. It rides fairly well and the cabin stays quiet, but the Journey's lack of agility makes it feel larger than it is. In addition, the transmission is reluctant to downshift and the third-row seat is tiny. Reliability has been well below average. Poor IIHS small overlap crash-test results are another demerit.
