The 2018 Dodge Journey is our lowest-ranked midsize SUV. It’s one of the least athletic SUVs on the market, and while the interior isn’t bad, many rivals’ cabins are at least as nice if not nicer.Is the Dodge Journey a Good SUV?
The Dodge Journey is not a particularly good SUV. Both of its engines are unimpressive, and fuel economy is just average for the class (if it’s going to be slow, it could at least be efficient). The Journey’s interior is well-built, and the infotainment tech is easy to use. However, other midsize SUVs have more space for passengers and cargo, and they offer more infotainment and driver assistance features. Additionally, the Journey hasn’t been redesigned since 2009, while many competitors have been redesigned more recently.Should I Buy the Dodge Journey?
You should not buy the Dodge Journey. Its starting price is lower than every competitor’s (and by a fair amount in most cases), but a low price doesn’t necessarily equate to a good value. In fact, aside from the low price tag, there’s no reason to choose the Journey ahead of any other midsize SUV.
The Hyundai Santa Fe, Toyota Highlander, and Chevrolet Traverse all finish much higher than the Journey in our rankings. They also provide some combination of better fuel economy, more cargo space, and more standard and available tech features.We Did the Research for You: 44 Reviews Analyzed
Instead of spending your free time doing car research, why not let the experts at U.S. News do it for you? Our reviews combine quantifiable data (such as crash test results and reliability ratings) with professional test driver opinions to form a complete picture of every vehicle we rank.
The 2018 Dodge Journey is part of a generation that began with the 2009 model year. Aside from a refresh in 2011, there have been no major changes to this vehicle. As a result, this review uses applicable research and data from the 2009 through 2018 model years.Why You Can Trust Us
The U.S. News Best Cars team has been ranking cars, trucks, and SUVs for more than a decade, and we have more than 75 years of combined experience in the automotive industry. To keep our reviews objective, our editorial staff doesn’t accept expensive gifts or trips from automakers, and a third party handles all advertising on our site.How Much Does the Dodge Journey Cost?
The Journey is the least expensive vehicle in the class, and it costs at least a few thousand dollars less than most competitors. The base trim (the Journey SE) starts around $22,500, and the top trim (the Journey GT) starts around $32,500. Even the GT’s starting price is less than some rivals’ base price, and it costs far less than most rivals’ top trims. Of course, it’s important to note that the Journey also provides fewer features and creature comforts than nearly every other midsize SUV.

The Hyundai Santa Fe offers infotainment features like Android Auto and Apple CarPlay, which the Journey doesn’t offer, as well as advanced driver assistance technologies. The Santa Fe also has more standard features, including a rearview camera and satellite radio. The Journey is strictly a 3-row SUV, while the Santa Fe comes with three rows, or two if you select the Santa Fe Sport. The Hyundai provides more cargo space than its Dodge rival regardless of which model you get, and it earns better safety scores. The Journey's only advantage is its lower base price. The Santa Fe is the better choice.Which Is Better: Dodge Journey or Toyota Highlander?
The Toyota Highlander is one of our highest-rated midsize SUVs. It has more standard active safety features than just about any vehicle in the class, and it provides much more cargo space than the Journey. Like its Dodge rival, the Highlander has three rows, though the Toyota seats up to eight. The Highlander’s cabin is sleek and upscale. On the road, the Highlander delivers a quiet, cushioned ride, and it gets better fuel economy than the Journey. The Highlander has a much higher starting price than the Journey, but it’s worth the extra money.Which Is Better: Dodge Journey or Chevrolet Traverse?
The Chevrolet Traverse has comfortable seating for eight and a much larger cargo hold than the Journey. The interior is built with high-quality materials, and it comes standard with features like Apple CarPlay and Android Auto, which you can’t get in the Journey. The Traverse’s standard V6 engine is more powerful than either Journey engine, and the Traverse also provides a smooth ride and composed handling. This is another no-brainer; choose the Traverse.Journey Interior How Many People Does the Journey Seat?
The Journey seats seven people. The front seats are comfortable and supportive, and the second row can accommodate most adults. The third row is only suitable for children, however. You won’t feel cramped in the Journey, but rivals provide more legroom.Journey and Car Seats
The Journey has two full sets of LATCH car-seat connectors. The connectors aren’t as easy to use as those in some rivals. The tether anchors can be confused with other hardware, and the lower anchors are set too deep in the seats.
An easier alternative to the LATCH connectors are the integrated booster seats that are available for the second row.Journey Interior Quality
Though it hasn’t been redesigned in years, the Journey still has an attractive interior that is generally well-built. There are soft-touch materials across many cabin surfaces.Journey Cargo Space
The Journey doesn’t have as much cargo space as most competitors. It has just under 11 cubic feet behind the third-row seats and a maximum capacity of 67.6 cubic feet. With all seats in use, you’ll have enough room for several shopping bags but not much in the way of larger items. Fold all the seats down, and you’ll have room for sporting gear and even some furniture, though you’ll then only have room for one passenger.Journey Infotainment, Bluetooth, and Navigation
Standard features include a USB port, a six-speaker audio system, and the Uconnect infotainment system with a 4.3-inch touch screen. Available features include tri-zone automatic climate control, satellite radio, Bluetooth, a six-speaker Alpine premium audio system, a DVD player with a 9-inch screen, and an upgraded Uconnect system with an 8.4-inch touch screen and navigation.
Uconnect is one of the most user-friendly infotainment systems you’ll find, and the responsive touch screen has sharp graphics. However, the Journey lacks smartphone connectivity features like Android Auto and Apple CarPlay, which are available in many rivals.Journey Performance Journey Engine: 2 Choices, and Neither Is Great
The Journey comes standard with a 173-horsepower four-cylinder engine that embodies disappointment. It fails to impress under ideal conditions, and its performance only gets worse if you have a car full of people or cargo. A 283-horsepower V6 is available. It still has lackluster acceleration, but it doesn’t feel strained like the base engine.Journey Gas Mileage: About Average
The Journey gets 19 mpg in the city and 25 mpg on the highway with its base engine. With the V6, those ratings drop to 17/25 mpg city/highway. With the base engine, you’ll spend about as much on gas each year driving the Journey as you would rivals like the Hyundai Santa Fe and Chevrolet Traverse, and that’s when both competitors are equipped with V6 engines.Journey Ride and Handling: Comfortable and Capable
The Journey rides smoothly even over rough roads. It feels bigger than it actually is, and there is noticeable body roll around turns. Despite these issues, the Journey is relatively nimble.Journey Reliability Is the Dodge Journey Reliable?
The 2018 Journey is part of a generation that typically earns a below-average predicted reliability rating of 2.5 out of five from J.D. Power. Most midsize SUVs have higher ratings.Dodge Journey Warranty
Dodge backs the Journey with a three-year/36,000-mile basic warranty and a five-year/60,000-mile powertrain warranty. Many midsize SUVs have similar warranty terms.Journey Safety Journey Crash Test Results
The 2018 Dodge Journey hasn’t been fully crash tested yet, but it earns four out of five stars in the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration’s frontal crash and rollover tests.Journey Safety Features
The Journey doesn’t have any standard driver assistance features, but a rearview camera and rear parking sensors are available. Many rivals offer more advanced active safety features like adaptive cruise control, blind spot monitoring, and forward collision warning.Which Dodge Journey Model Is Right for Me?
Dodge (part of the Fiat Chrysler brand, which also includes Jeep) offers the Journey in four trims: SE, SXT, Crossroad, and GT. A four-cylinder engine is standard, though a V6 is available. All Journey models come standard with front-wheel drive, but you can add all-wheel drive to any trim for $1,900-$4,400 (to add AWD you must also upgrade to the V6 engine).
The lower Journey trims don’t offer many features, so they’re best for buyers on a tight budget. The Crossroad offers the best value in the lineup. It’s available with just about every feature you can get in the Journey, and its starting price is about $4,400 less than the top-level GT trim’s.Dodge Journey SE
The Journey SE is the base trim, and it has a starting price of $22,495. Standard features include a USB port, a six-speaker audio system, push-button start, and the Uconnect infotainment system with a 4.3-inch touch screen. You can add the V6 engine and all-wheel drive for $4,400.
There are several option packages, but most are just styling upgrades, though the Connectivity Group ($795) adds Bluetooth. You can also add integrated child booster seats for the second row for $265.Dodge Journey SXT
The Journey SXT starts at $25,695. The SXT doesn’t have any more standard features than the base trim, but it does have more options. The V6 engine is a $1,700 upgrade.
This trim offers the Connectivity Group for the same price as the base trim. You can also get the Uconnect 8.4 Touch Screen Radio Group ($895), which adds tri-zone automatic climate control and an upgraded Uconnect system with an 8.4-inch touch screen. The Premium Group ($1,095) adds a power-adjustable driver’s seat and a security alarm.Dodge Journey Crossroad
The Journey Crossroad has a starting price of $27,895. On top of the lower trims’ features, the Crossroad comes standard with dual-zone automatic climate control, leather upholstery, a power-adjustable driver’s seat, satellite radio, and an upgraded Uconnect system with an 8.4-inch touch screen and voice recognition. As with the SXT, the V6 engine is a $1,700 upgrade.
The Driver Convenience Group ($695) adds a rearview camera and rear parking sensors. The Family Entertainment Group ($1,345) adds second-row child booster seats, a six-speaker Alpine audio system, and a second-row 9-inch video screen.
The Popular Equipment Group ($1,350) includes heated front seats, a heated steering wheel, and remote start. The Nav & Sun Group ($1,845) adds a sunroof, a rearview camera, rear parking sensors, and an upgraded Uconnect system with an 8.4-inch touch screen and navigation.Dodge Journey GT
The Journey GT starts at $32,495. The GT is the only trim to come standard with the V6 engine. It also comes with a heated steering wheel, heated front seats, and an Alpine audio system.
The GT offers the Driver Convenience Group, Family Entertainment Group, and Nav & Sun Group, and all for the same prices as in the Crossroad trim. It also offers the Navigation and Back-Up Camera Group for $1,295, which includes tri-zone automatic climate control, rear parking sensors, a rearview camera, and an upgraded Uconnect system with an 8.4-inch touch screen and navigation.

The 2018 Dodge Journey isn’t a good choice compared to its competitors. Its powertrains are among the least impressive in the class, and many rivals’ interiors have more to offer. For these reasons and others, the Journey finishes last in our midsize SUV rankings.
Don’t just take our word for it. Check out comments from some of the reviews that drive our rankings and analysis.
(Photo: Dodge) A teaser image for the 2018 Dodge Challenger SRT Demon.
After a promotional campaign spanning three months with 14 different teasers, Fiat Chrysler Automobiles is finally ready to take the wraps off the 2018 Dodge Challenger SRT Demon. The highly anticipated muscle car debuts at the New York International Auto Show (NYIAS) this Tuesday, April 11.
The 2018 Dodge Demon is expected to be the ultimate performance halo car as it is said to be much powerful and faster than the 707-horsepower Dodge Hellcat. FCA has highlighted various facets of the forthcoming vehicle's engineering prowess including its weight, launch force, drivetrain and TransBrake, among others.
The final teasers for the 2018 Dodge Demon preview its fuel system and quarter-mile time.
In "Fuel," the automaker revealed that the Demon will be the first production vehicle that can run on track-preferred high-octane unleaded fuel. Using the separate Demon Crate, which comes with a new powertrain control module (PCM), drivers will be able to run on high-octane mode with just a switch of the button located on the center stack console.
Meanwhile, in the teaser titled "Judgement Day," the upcoming muscle car takes on the drag strip and a quick peek at its time slip suggests a 10-second quarter-mile time. This is notable because the Dodge Hellcat accomplishes the same feat in 11.7 seconds. The roaring sound of the Demon's supercharged HEMI V8 engine can also be heard in the video.
A purported image of the 2018 Dodge Demon was leaked on Monday, April 10, and it does a great job of whetting the appetites of car enthusiasts. Notable exterior features include a prominent hood scoop, wide fenders and Demon badging. There are also rumors that the vehicle can deliver as much as 1,023 horsepower.
The 2018 Dodge Challenger SRT Demon will be unveiled later today at 7:30 p.m. EDT. The reveal event will be streamed live here. The upcoming muscle car will also be featured in "The Fate of the Furious," arriving in theaters on Friday, April 14.Most Popular Stories
