pros

Good handling for a small SUV; seating for up to seven; available all-wheel drive; powerful V6 engine

value writeup

The Dodge Journey competes in the crowded small SUV and crossover market. Offering an array of model choices, the Journey can be optioned quite nicely despite its low base price. A more powerful-than-average available V6 makes it reasonably quick for this segment of vehicles.

Just one engine is available for 2020--a 2.4L 4-cylinder that makes 173 horsepower and 166 ft-lbs. of torque. The Journey has an EPA-estimated fuel mileage of 19 mpg city and 25 mpg highway.

Note Regarding Driver Rating:

Male: Average sized adult male dummy in 35-MPH crash into fixed barrier. Rating is evaluation of injury to head, neck, chest, legs. Female: Small-sized adult female dummy in 35-mph crash into fixed barrier. Rating is evaluation of injury to head, neck, chest, legs.

Rollover Note: Dynamic (moving) test results (Tip or No Tip) and measured rollover-related properties determine vehicle's risk of rollover in single vehicle crash and its rollover rating. The Rollover Resistance Rating utilizes a "fishhook" maneuver which is a series of abrupt turns at varying speeds to see how "top-heavy" a vehicle is.
