2014 Dodge Journey vs. Its Competition

2014 Dodge Journey
Bengt Halvorson Bengt Halvorson Deputy Editor

The Dodge Journey has finally become a worthy rival for mainstream crossovers like the Equinox, RAV4 and CR-V.

The Kia Sorento is the Journey's closest competitor, with seating for seven, a choice of four- or six- cylinder engines, and an easy-to-use UVO voice control system for phone, audio and navigation.

The Toyota RAV4 only offers two rows of seats and a four-cylinder engine, while the Subaru Outback puts a focus on adventure-prone families with its added levels of ruggedness.

The Honda CR-V is well-packaged, refined and known for its reliability, and the Chevy Equinox offers extra interior space and up to 32 mpg on the highway.

Quick Specs
7.8
The 2014 Dodge Journey offers three rows of seats in an easy-to-manage package, all for an affordable price.
7.8
The 2014 Chevrolet Equinox is every bit as solid, spacious, and well-equipped as cost-conscious families could expect -- and far more quiet and refined than many other models without a luxury badge.
7.6
The 2014 Honda CR-V isn't exactly sprightly, but it nails efficiency on a few levels and finally brings more features to the family-wagon fight.
8.0
The 2014 Kia Sorento gets a quick fix for its minor flaws: they brighten the cabin and soften the ride.
8.2
Above all else, the 2014 Subaru Outback remains an eminently practical and capable vehicle, with generous interior space both for people and their gear.
7.2
The 2013 Toyota RAV4 excels at mass-market talents like gas mileage and interior room--but for turbocharged fun in a crossover, you'll have to look elsewhere.
