The Car Connection's Take
TCC Rating
8.0
7.8
TCC’s Bottom Line
If you don’t need a third row, the 2011 Chevrolet Equinox is just right for small families; it’s refined, secure, and versatile, and gets very impressive fuel economy in four-cylinder form. The 2011 Dodge Journey is a crossover wagon for seven, not a Le Mans intender; it's well-suited for a practical family journey.
