The 2018 Dodge Journey is a mainstream mid-size three-row crossover SUV with seating for up to 7 passengers. The Journey slots below the larger and more premium mid-size Dodge Durango in the brand’s SUV lineup. Prices start from an MSRP of $22,995.
Pros: Affordable, Available All-Wheel-Drive, Roomy Interior, Standard Third-Row Seat, Comfortable Ride
Cons: Safety Score, Less Fuel-Efficient Than Competitors
Looks Best In: Redline exterior/Light Frost interior
Safety Score: The 2018 Dodge Journey received a “Poor” rating for the driver-side small front overlap crash test performed by the Insurance Institute for Highway Safety and was outperformed by some competitors.
Summary: A standard third-row seat best suited for occasional use and a low price are two of the Journey’s best assets. Shoppers who find the Honda Pilot and Ford Explorer too large and cumbersome may find the smaller Journey to be just the right size. A major letdown for the Journey is its less than stellar safety score.
