2017 Dodge Journey Expert Rundown Review

Are you looking for an affordable crossover that has three rows of seats? The 2017 Dodge Journey checks both boxes. Here's a quick rundown of what we like, what we don't and the bottom line from the Edmunds editors.

JOSH SADLIER: This is Edmunds Editor Josh Sadlier, and here's an expert rundown of the 2017 Dodge Journey. [MUSIC PLAYING] The Journey's a tough one to cover for us. It's kind of a crossover, kind of a wagon. You can get a third row seat in it, which is unusual for a vehicle in this price range. And there's a nice V-6 under the hood optionally. But there's also some epic misses with this vehicle including the standard four-cylinder engine. It's wheezy. It's not very fuel efficient, really outdated, and it comes with a four-speed automatic that's even more outdated. So you really have to be careful with the options you select with this vehicle. If you outfit it correctly, it's got a lot going for it. But if you take the dealer special, you might end up with some really undesirable elements by current standards. [MUSIC PLAYING] One thing every Journey has going for it is generous cargo capacity. You can see it's got kind of an elevated wagon body style. Pop the hatch, fold the seats down, plenty of room for your stuff. Inside the Journey, you can see this is a three-row version, a second row slides forward, not much leg room back there. This is more for the kids. But, again, if you're looking for a three-row option in this price range, not too many to choose from, and the Journey has you covered there. Speaking of interesting options on this vehicle, we've got to include the optional entertainment system. You see the flip down screen there, another very unusual feature in this class and at this price point. Up front, the 8.4 inch touch screen is another interesting option, but doesn't come on every Journey. And overall, the materials aren't really up to snuff. You can tell this is a dated vehicle by looking and poking round. Bottom line, the Journey offers three-row family transportation at a reasonable price. But you got to pick those options carefully, and certainly you want to shop around before you plunk your money down at the Dodge dealer. For more Edmunds expert rundowns, click the link to subscribe.
