2015 Dodge Journey vs. Its Competition

2015 Dodge Journey
Bengt Halvorson Bengt Halvorson Senior 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 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.

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 Journey is also about the same size and shape as the Toyota Venza, but its superior packaging and third available third row create more usable space than in the Toyota.

Quick Specs
The 2015 Dodge Journey is at once an alternative to minivans and large crossovers, with intelligent packaging and good value.
The 2015 Chevrolet Equinox is more refined and quiet than many of its competitors, while offering the versatility and value that a budget-conscious family would expect.
The 2015 Honda CR-V is neither sporty nor particularly quick, but fuel efficiency is excellent and it prioritizes interior space, earnest practicality, and cleverly chosen features in a way that buyers appear to crave.
The 2015 Kia Sorento gets a little better each year, and its combination of elegance, versatility, and value makes it a great pick for families.
The 2015 Subaru Outback is as much of a tough, safe family wagon as ever; but this year, its brawn doesn't come with as much compromise in comfort and quiet.
The 2015 Toyota RAV4 is a practical crossover with confident handling. Just know that driving enjoyment is not its strong point.
