About Dodge Journey

The 2017 Dodge Journey may not be the sexiest 7-passenger crossover SUV on the market, but there is no denying its value and versatility. A 4-cylinder Dodge Journey starts just under $22,500, undercutting newer rivals like the Kia Sorrento, Toyota Highlander and Hyundai Santa Fe. We think the 4-cylinder is too weak for this vehicle, however, and base models are sparsely optioned. If you’re going to do it right, get the 283-horsepower V6 and a mid-level trim such as the Crossroad. Add in all-wheel drive and you’ll have a comfortable, capable crossover SUV big enough to hold the kids and all their stuff, powerful enough to haul them with confidence and flexible enough to serve as everything from errand runner to weekend warrior.

"This car is an absolute joy to drive. The power of the 3.5L engine is wonderful! The car is comfy to sit in. Better interior would be appreciated, but looking at all the competitors everyone uses too much hard plastic. Great ground clearance. Only went to a dealer to have the oil changed, everything else is solid and well built."

"The most troublesome factor is the upholstery fabric, have already had front and back replaced. Even water leaves stains even after Scotchgard. Labeling over key slot is coming off. The soda can cooler is a joke, I had 2 cans of pop explode in there. I miss a digital compass and keyless entry remote. We have had lots of Dodges, but I will not purchase a Journey again."

Pros: "Price, features, build quality, 3rd row"

Cons: "exterior look - more Caravan than Durango"

Likely to recommend this car? (1-10): 10

"The Dodge Journey is the best value in it's category. I shopped around, and the amount of features for the $$ was unbeatable with the Journey. The V6 is a phenomenal engine with great power coupled with a smooth 6 speed trans. We don't use the 3rd row often, but it is a fantastic option to have available. I was never a Dodge fan, but I have been impressed with the quality and feel of the Journey. This may seem insignificant, but I like it when i close my car door and the vehicle feels solid. We have had no reliability issues just at 1 year of owennership! I have recommended this vehicle to my friends and family and look forward to purchasing a Durango in the near future."
