Which Journey does Edmunds recommend?

The best option for long-term enjoyment is the Crossroad with the Driver Convenience package, which includes the Uconnect infotainment system, several more practical features, and a few luxuries for good measure. Whatever Journey you buy, be sure to get the 3.6-liter V6.

Overall rating

5.4 / 10

Time has not been kind to the 2019 Dodge Journey. Despite previous refreshes or redesigns to keep pace with changing tides and tastes, it's pretty much the same as when the Journey debuted a decade ago. Dodge designers might have nailed the Journey's purpose from the start, but they've since let others catch up and surpass it in many areas.

Dodge has made some minor tweaks to this year's Journey. There's one fewer trim level, allowing some of the discontinued trim's features to migrate to the base trim. There is, however, the new and exceptionally cool Destroyer Gray paint scheme. The Journey should only come in this color. It might give the car some much-needed attitude.

But it will take more than attitude to bring the Journey back into serious consideration among its newer and more refined Kia and Volkswagen competitors. Even when fully optioned, it lacks most of the safety features today's buyers might expect. Its base four-cylinder engine is truly underwhelming and is paired to an equally uninspired four-speed automatic transmission, a combination that yields subpar fuel economy. There's a stronger, optional V6, but even it can't keep up with other three-row SUVs.

The 2019 Journey will get you where you're going, and it will do so for less money than many competitors. But overall you'll probably be happier with vehicles such as the GMC Acadia, Kia Sorento or Volkswagen Tiguan.

2019 Dodge Journey models

The 2019 Dodge Journey comes in SE, Crossroad and GT trim levels. The base SE is pretty bare-bones, lacking even Bluetooth as a standard feature. Stepping up to the Crossroad gets you more of the standard features you expect from entry-level trims on other vehicles, while the range-topping GT gives you those features plus leather and a standard V6.

All trims come standard with front-wheel drive, with all-wheel drive as an option. Front-wheel-drive SE and Crossroad trims come standard with a 2.4-liter four-cylinder (173 horsepower, 166 pound-feet of torque) paired with a four-speed automatic. Opting for all-wheel drive gets you a 3.6-liter V6 (283 hp, 260 lb-ft of torque) and a six-speed automatic transmission.

Standard feature highlights for the Journey SE include 17-inch steel wheels, automatic headlights, foglights, roof rails, heated side mirrors, a height-adjustable driver's seat, 60/40-split second-row seats and 50/50-split third-row seats (both rows slide and recline). Also included are keyless ignition and entry, a rearview camera, and a six-speaker sound system with a 4.3-inch touchscreen interface and auxiliary audio input.

The SE can be upgraded with the optional Connectivity package (Bluetooth, satellite radio, a USB port, voice commands and a leather-wrapped steering wheel), the Comfort/Convenience package (upgraded cloth upholstery and a power-adjustable driver's seat), the Blacktop package (17-inch alloy wheels and blacked-out exterior trim), and the Premium Group (combines the Connectivity and Comfort/Convenience packages). Remote start and an alarm are also available.

Moving up to the Crossroad gets you the features of the Premium Group plus 19-inch wheels, a touring-tuned suspension, leather upholstery, three-zone climate control with rear-seat vents, and an upgraded 8.4-inch touchscreen infotainment system.

Options available for the Crossroad include remote start, heated front seats, a rear-seat entertainment system, a premium six-speaker stereo system with subwoofer, navigation, a sunroof, and the Driver Convenience package, which brings rear parking sensors and a universal garage door opener.

The range-topping GT trim combines most of the Crossroad's options listed above with unique 19-inch wheels and an upgraded suspension.

Driving

5.5
Even with the optional V6, the Dodge Journey accelerates more slowly than many competitors. And while the steering is appropriately light, it also feels very vague. Overall, the Journey has been left behind in terms of driving dynamics and handling by the new generation of three-row SUVs.

Acceleration

5.0
The gas pedal is quite sensitive, making the Journey feel quick but also jumpy around town. Once the Journey is moving, the 3.6-liter V6 is sluggish until it gets close to the redline, where the power picks up a bit. Our as-tested 0-60 mph time of 8.5 seconds is slow for a V6-equipped SUV.

Braking

7.0
The Journey's brakes are light and easy to modulate around town, and they provide sufficient stopping power. In panic stops, the pedal is a bit squishy, and the vehicle doesn't always track straight. Stopping from 60 mph required 132 feet in Edmunds testing, which is average for the class.

Steering

6.0
The steering is light virtually all the time, which is good for low-speed maneuvers. But because the on-center feel isn't great, it requires some attention to maintain a straight path at highway speeds. Around turns, the Journey feels slow to respond to inputs, and there's little to no feedback.

Handling

5.0
The Journey is downright sloppy, wobbling and bouncing through curves. And it feels light and disconnected right up until it starts to lose traction. Even moving slowly, the Journey is imprecise. It's a vehicle that needs constant managing to stay on course.

Drivability

5.0
The Journey is lively at low speeds but frequently needs a downshift to accelerate at freeway speeds. On hills, the transmission hunts around, so maintaining a constant speed is a struggle. Upshifts from the six-speed automatic are slow, and the downshifts are jerky.

Comfort

6.5
The Journey is well-insulated from road and tire noise, but traffic and wind noise fill the cabin. The soft suspension cushions large bumps well but tends toward exaggerated bounciness. The seats are not supportive enough to be comfortable on longer drives.

Seat comfort

5.5
The driver's seat is soft and not very supportive except for the firm lumbar support. The passenger and second-row seats have firmer cushions because of hidden storage compartments/booster seats. The third row is stiff and flat.

Ride comfort

6.5
The Journey's defining suspension characteristic is bounce. The soft suspension does cushion sharper impacts well, but it turns bumps and humps into an exaggerated vertical motion. The Journey seldom feels settled, so be careful if your passengers have sensitive stomachs.

Noise & vibration

6.5
Road and tire noise is pleasantly insulated, one of the car's definite strengths. A lot of sound from surrounding traffic makes it into the cabin, however, and there's audible wind noise at highway speeds. Other SUVs have more road noise, but the ambient traffic sounds in the Journey make it feel less isolated.

Climate control

7.0
While main adjustments to temperature and fan speed are easy to make, any other action, such as changing vent modes or activating the heated seats, has to be accessed through the touchscreen. The climate control system works well to maintain temperature when left to its own devices.

Interior

6.5
The Journey offers good visibility and an appropriately upright driving position, but otherwise the interior quality and design are poor. The second-row space feels smaller than it is, and it's difficult to use the second and third rows if any of the passengers are adults.

Ease of use

6.0
Most controls are straightforward, as is the simple touchscreen interface. We found the single combined wiper and turn-signal stalk frustrating to adapt to and particularly difficult to find at night. Navigating the trip computer takes more steps than it should because of a poorly thought-out interface.

Getting in/getting out

7.0
Front entry is easy, and the rear door openings aren't bad. The seats fold aside cleverly for third-row access, but it's a tight squeeze for adults. Resetting the second row is a multi-step process that can't be accomplished from the third row.

Driving position

7.0
The driving position is upright, which places all the controls within reach and feels appropriate for this style of vehicle. There's enough seat height adjustment to accommodate most drivers. The door armrest is low, and the steering wheel doesn't offer a lot of telescoping range.

Roominess

5.5
The front is roomy, and the second row has good head- and legroom. But the rear air vents are routed through the roof, making the interior feel smaller. Third-row space is inadequate for adults. Sliding the second row forward to give the third row more legroom makes the second row less usable.

Visibility

8.0
The large mirrors, expansive windows, an upright windscreen, and rear three-quarter panel windows mean that overall visibility is naturally quite good in the Journey without the help of electronic driver aids.

Quality

4.5
Hard plastics abound. Even the leather and faux leather trims on the seats and touch points are stiff and plasticky, and the cloth seat inserts feel unpleasantly synthetic. Most of what you touch feels light and cheap. We also noted a rattle in our tester's cabin, with just 2,000 miles on the odometer.

Utility

7.0
The Dodge Journey offers less cargo space than competitors but makes up for this deficit a bit by having quite a few cubbies and compartments around the cabin. The built-in second-row booster seats are a high point.

Small-item storage

8.0
There is a lot of storage in the cabin, including bins in the second-row floor, a bin under the passenger seat cushion, large door pockets, a large center console cubby, and a deep (if narrow) armrest bin. These won't all be useful to the driver, but the sheer volume of interior storage is impressive.

Cargo space

5.0
The short cargo opening makes bulky items harder to maneuver in, and the maximum capacity of 67.6 cubic feet is small for the class. With the third row in place, there's barely even room for groceries in the trunk. The second row and passenger seat fold flat at least.

Child safety seat accommodation

7.5
The built-in booster seats in the second row will win over some parents, and they're easy enough to deploy that a child could manage. There are LATCH points for the second-row outboard seats and top anchors for all three positions, but neither for the third row.

Towing

4.0
With a maximum towing capacity of 2,500 pounds, the Journey is put to shame by some three-row competitors. Most can handle between 3,500 and 5,000 pounds, while a few can go even higher.

Technology

4.0
The Journey's technology features make it immediately apparent that this is an aging vehicle. The last-gen touchscreen is easy to navigate but lacks smartphone integration. The GPS is clunky to use, the voice controls are largely ineffective, and there are no driver aids to speak of.

Audio & navigation

5.0
The aging touchscreen interface is easy to navigate, but it lacks newer features and refinements. The navigation display looks dated, and the promising search by name function proved hit-or-miss. The stereo system is bass-heavy and delivers poor sound quality for a "premium" upgrade.

Smartphone integration

5.0
Pairing our phone via Bluetooth was a bit complicated, but once the connection was set up, the system worked well. There's no smartphone integration, and we had trouble getting the system to read music on our phones via USB. There's only one USB port in the vehicle but plenty of 12-volt plugs.

Driver aids

3.0
The Journey offers none of the common driver aids that you'll find even on today's economy compact cars. Blind-spot monitoring, rear cross-traffic alert, forward collision warning and automatic emergency braking are not available. The rearview camera is pretty low-resolution, too.

Voice control

4.0
Natural language recognition is poor, and misunderstandings are frequent. From the home screen, we had trouble getting the system to dial a contact and wound up navigating menus step by step. The Help screen only displays a partial list of commands. Overall, this is a system to avoid.

Honestly Surprised
Danny,03/14/2020
SE 4dr SUV AWD (3.6L 6cyl 6A)
My wife and I had to by a new car. Since we have two kids (11&9) we wanted a small SUV. I did research and based on price and availability in our area and went to test out the 19 Ford Escape and 19 Jeep Renagade. They both seemed like fine cars, however, neither felt right. I saw a Black Dodge Journey and actually liked how it looked. But I remember looking at expert reviews online and the Journey was rated at the bottom. I decided to do more research on the Journey and also test drive it. We also test drove a Grand Cherokee for a class comparison. Online, the Journey was compared with midsized SUVs like the Jeep Grand Cherokee and Toyota Highlander so I felt it was only right to drive one and see the difference. When compared to the Grand Cherokee, the Journey was a lower standard SUV. The Cherokee had leather, a sun roof, and a larger touch screen and the Journey did not have leather or a sun roof and only a smaller touch screen. I also noticed that the online reviews of the Journey were for the 2.4L front wheel drive model and I test drove the 3.6L all-wheel drive model. It had the same engine as the Cherokee and drove very comparable, however, the Cherokee was a slightly better feeling ride. Another area the Journey received poor reviews was for compartment space. Since it has a third row, there is little room back there if the third row is used. However, we have no thoughts of using the third row and when laid flat, it has a ton of space. The tech is also behind the Cherokee but it still has more tech than any car I have owned. I do wish it had 1 thing, blue-tooth. When I compared the Journey to the Escape and Renagade, the Journey was much better in my opinion. I’m 37 so I like the look better since the Escape looks like a 20 year old Girls suv and the Renagade looks like a 20 boys suv. The Journey looks like a boring dad suv and that is exactly what I am. Lol. Not going to impress the guys at work but I am not worried about trying to compensate for anything. The price was almost the same as the two smaller suvs. We walked out of the dealer paying $24,000 for the V6 All-Wheel drive model. A few months in and we really like the Journey.

Great mid size SUV & low price
Kelly,10/03/2020
Crossroad 4dr SUV AWD (3.6L 6cyl 6A)
I wanted to downgrade from my Ford Expedition Limited, so I looked at the Chevy traverse, the Ford Explorer & even a Nissan Pathfinder. All of those were great SUV’s but the price wasn’t what I wanted to pay. I rented a Dodge Journey to drive from Boston to SC for my nephews graduation from boot camp. It handled so well, got great gas mileage & had enough room for myself & my 2 children 11 & 8. In June I seen a black Journey Crossroad AWD with black rims & all black interior for sale & had to go look at it. It was exactly what I was looking for. It was sporty enough that it wasn’t just a mid-size SUV that you see everywhere & it stood out unlike all the rest. The price was just what I was looking to spend because downsizing from a Expedition was hard enough & I wanted to be more realistic w/maintenance after the warranty is up. No it does NOT have ALL the bells & whistles like heated/cooling seats, all electric seats, electronic push button trunk, sensor backup camera or a sunroof BUT it has the bells which was perfect for me. Yes I would love to have all the above, I mean who wouldn’t right, but not for $10-$15k more. I have had my Dodge Journey Crossroad AWD for 4 months now & I must say it’s amazing. It suits my family’s needs & I still have plenty of room for my 11yr old sons hockey bag & 2 sticks. I would recommend this SUV to anyone who wants something NEW but half the cost of the other competitors w/the 3rd row if your able to be ok with only having the bells.

Maybe too honest
Boo,11/14/2019
GT 4dr SUV AWD (3.6L 6cyl 6A)
So let me start by saying dodge is way behind the other companies. Originally went for a durrango but being 5'1 and the fact dodge is probably the only company that doesn't include power seats in a 2019 model its extra. So im left with the choice to buy the 50k model or pay 40k and get a booster seat..wtf so i looked into the journey the v6 gt is the best model available. It struggles to get up hills due to low horsepower compared to other suvs. Constantly find myself rolling backwards while driving.The software and accessories are dated due to the fact they havent given the body or computer an update ever. The 3rd row is very cramped for small children and trunk space is horrible. But it warms up quickly in the winter and does great in the snow. The floor storage is nice but very small. Built in booster seats are convenient, the back up camera is very accurate.Back window is a blindspot theres no chance of seeing out of it with passengers. So not sure if i'd buy this again theres alot of faults but i like it so far probably would never buy again unless they updated it

Very Satisfied
Steve Windhaus,09/30/2019
Crossroad 4dr SUV (2.4L 4cyl 4A)
Bought a used 2013 SE in 2016. It had been driven long and hard beforehand, but was very reliable. Then bought a new SE in 2017. Was very pleased with it, but the wife needs power driver's seat due to operation on her arm. We have gone back and just upgraded to a new 2019 Crossroad. Again we are very pleased. The low price, smooth ride, reliability, relative comfort, noise reduction, UConnect for the phone, rearview camera, Sirius XM and space all fit so very well with our needs.

Should I lease or buy a 2019 Dodge Journey?

Is it better to lease or buy a car? Ask most people and they'll probably tell you that car buying is the way to go. And from a financial perspective, it's true, provided you're willing to make higher monthly payments, pay off the loan in full and keep the car for a few years. Leasing, on the other hand, can be a less expensive option on a month-to-month basis. It's also good if you're someone who likes to drive a new car every three years or so.
