The Car Connection's Take
TCC Rating
8.2
7.4
TCC’s Bottom Line
The 2010 Dodge Journey crossover is a mini-minivan and excels in features and safety, but the driving experience leaves a lot to be desired. The 2009 Ford Escape Hybrid is a viable and sturdy contender in the family crossover arena. Gas mileage is excellent for a compact SUV, and optional mechanical all-wheel drive sets it apart from softer competitors.
