Great Value!
Jon R., 8/1/2018
It is true that Dodge has not updated the Journey since 2011. It is true that it does not carry some of the new advanced electronics that it's competitors do. However, if you want an SUV for a great price, the Dodge Journey is the model of choice. SO far, I really like the Dodge Journey. It is comfortable to drive. It handles the road. My biggest recommendation is to get the optional V6 engine. You will thank me for that. I test drove the 4Cyl. version. It was very underpowered. The V6 is just right for this size vehicle. Overall, I recommend the Dodge Journey. Dealers have some phenomenal deals going on now.
basic of the basic
budget guy, 7/26/2018
Dodge is turning a quick buck on this baby! I have the basic model and they went too far; moreover, it was like the stripped it when they built it in Mexico. #1 on the motor they no longer put the cover on the top of motor. #2 They managed to make the front passenger seat so it will not fold down flat ( forward)for long cargo! #3 the digital interface for the speedometer looks like they forgot to finished it with a small digital display for the speed and arrows that stay permanently on, of instead of say a four inch display its closer than less than three inches. #4 DO NOT pull out inform of any moving vehicle because it has the speed of a slug with salt, I think it is the transmission or the computer system, but if you think you are going to floor the gas pedal it will not move very fast. #5 the standard radio is NOT interchangeable with any radio at your local store and I was quoted at best buy over seven hundred for the face plate or in this car the whole front console; moreover, a good blue tooth radio is only a few hundred but you have to buy the console so you are looking a close to a Grand! #6 the regular beams only seem to go out around 100 feet!
Mr Average
Art. Brooking, 6/6/2018
Not got good ratings, but it does the job it was bought for. Had a Ford escape before, no difference in performance or consumption. The car is very basic with no Bluetooth or even overtaking mirrors. BUT I,m happy enough with what I got for the money and trade in.

More about the 2018 Dodge Journey

The 2018 Dodge Journey is a crossover SUV that offers three rows of seating and quite a bit of practicality. It comes in four trim levels: SE, SXT, Crossroad and GT. Each is available in either front-wheel drive or all-wheel drive. Front-wheel-drive models use a 2.4-liter four-cylinder engine that makes 173 horsepower and 166 pound-feet of torque. A four-speed automatic transmission is standard.

Opting for the all-wheel-drive version of the Journey gets you a 3.6-liter V6. It makes a more respectable 283 hp and 260 lb-ft of torque and is paired to a six-speed automatic transmission. The V6 is also available as an optional upgrade on all front-wheel-drive trims except the base SE.

It may be 2018, but the base SE trim of the Journey feels like something from an earlier decade, with its standard 4.3-inch touchscreen infotainment system lacking even standard Bluetooth. That's an optional extra. Still, the Journey SE does offer multiple 12-volt power outlets, underfloor storage bins, dual-zone air conditioning for the front seats, keyless entry and start, and a height-adjustable driver seat.

Dodge offers rear-seat air vents with temperature control, a conversation mirror, satellite radio, voice commands and, of course, that Bluetooth, as optional extras for the SE.

Move up to the Journey SXT and Dodge will throw in the three-zone temperature control and add 17-inch alloy wheels. You can also add an optional 8.4-inch touchscreen infotainment system running Dodge's Uconnect interface, which gives you more connectivity options. A rearview camera and rear parking sensors are also optional extras for the SXT.

The 2018 Journey Crossroad is where things start to look more competitive for the Dodge. The 8.4-inch Uconnect touchscreen is standard, along with three-zone automatic climate control, adjustable LED lamps for the front and rear seats, a conversation mirror, overhead storage bin, and a six-way power-adjustable driver seat with power lumbar adjustment. Optional upgrades include the rearview camera and parking sensors, navigation, a premium sound system, heated front seats, leather upholstery, a sunroof and a rear seat entertainment system.

The range-topping GT trim throws in the heated leather seats and a premium sound system, along with 19-inch alloy wheels and remote start. The rear-seat entertainment system is still available, along with the rearview camera, parking sensors, sunroof, and a trailering package that includes a hitch and four-pin wiring harness.

The Journey certainly isn't the most modern SUV around, but it offers three rows and bargain prices. Read our full review to find out more, and be sure to use the Edmunds shopping tools to find the best value on a 2018 Dodge Journey near you.
