2016 Dodge Journey Earns Four-Star Safety Rating From Federal Government


WASHINGTON — The 2016 Dodge Journey SUV earned a four-star overall safety rating from the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration.

Five stars is the highest rating.

On sale now at Dodge dealerships, the 2016 Journey received four stars in the front crash test, five stars in the side crash test and four stars in the rollover crash test.

The rating applies to front-wheel-drive and all-wheel-drive versions of the 2016 Journey.

Every 2016 Journey comes standard with antilock brakes, traction and stability control, active front head restraints, front side airbags, side curtain airbags and a driver's knee airbag. Integrated second-row child booster seats are optional on every Journey. A rearview camera and rear parking sensors are available as an option on the Crossroad Plus and R/T.

The Insurance Institute for Highway Safety said the 2016 Journey received "good" scores in its crash tests, but a "poor" score in the small overlap front crash test. The test is designed to replicate what happens when the front corner of a vehicle collides with another vehicle or an object like a tree or utility pole.

Key Journey competitors include the Chevrolet Equinox, Hyundai Santa Fe and Toyota RAV4.

Edmunds says: Car shoppers keeping score should note that the 2016 Chevrolet Equinox also received a four-star overall safety rating from NHTSA. The 2016 Toyota RAV4 received the highest five-star rating from NHTSA. The 2016 Hyundai Santa Fe has not been rated.
