2019 Dodge Journey

Pros: Bargain pricing; peppy, refined V6 powertrain; generous equipment levels; clever, family-friendly storage features

Cons: Weak acceleration from 4-cylinder engine; available 19-inch wheels and sport suspension diminish ride quality; thick door and roof pillars compromise rear visibility

CG Says: The 2019 Dodge Journey drops its SXT trim and adds equipment, such as tri-zone automatic climate controls and fog lights, to the base SE model. Journey is a midsize crossover SUV with a standard third-row seat. The base engine is a 173-horsepower 2.4-liter 4-cylinder that is paired with a 4-speed automatic transmission. (This is one of the last 4-speed automatics available as manufactures add more speeds to their transmissions for increased efficiency.) A 283-hp 3.6-liter V6 mated to a 6-speed automatic is standard on GTs and all-wheel drive models and is optional on SE and Crossroad front-wheel drive models. Journey might not have the overall space and refinement of some of its competitors, but Journey excels in other key areas. Among its strengths are outstanding cargo flexibility, optional built-in child-booster seats, and a quiet cabin. Combine this with aggressive pricing, and Journey is a compelling package for families of most any size.
