Dodge has laid out the usual spread of safety amenities so the entire family can travel with peace of mind.
Motor Trend



Before its recent extreme makeover, the Dodge Journey turned in excellent safety scores--one of the few reasons to choose it over more up-to-date wagons. Now that it's been improved heavily, safety still is among the best in its class.

The National Highway Traffic Safety Administration (NHTSA) gives the Journey an overall rating of four stars, with a five-star individual score for side-impact protection. The Insurance Institute for Highway Safety (IIHS) reinstates the Journey's Top Safety Pick award, which had been held back while the agency rated the crossover's roof-crush protection.

Every Journey comes standard with dual front, side, and curtain airbags; stability and traction control; active head restraints; and four-wheel disc brakes with anti-lock control. We recommend the optional rearview camera and parking sensors, though they're not available on the base version at all. Chrysler is unique in offering integrated second-row child booster seats on the Journey, on all models.

 

Conclusion

The 2012 Dodge Journey performs well in federal and insurance-industry crash tests, and has some key safety options available.

How does the
TCC Rating work?
The TCC Rating is a clear numeric rating value based on a 10-point scale that reflects the overall opinion of our automotive experts on any vehicle and rolls up ratings we give each vehicle across sub-categories you care about like performance, safety, styling and more.

Our rating also has simple color-coded “Stop” (red), “Caution” (orange),
or “Go” (green) messages along with the numerical score so you can easily understand where we stand at a glance.

Our automotive experts then also collect and show you what other websites say about these different aspects of any vehicle. We do this leg work for you to simplify your research process.
