2019 Dodge Journey Complete In-depth Review & Buying Guide


Amratya Nigam's image

Amratya Nigam Automotive Journalist Updated on: October 17, 2019


Launched in 2009, Dodge Journey is the most affordable three-row SUV that money can buy in the American car market today. It may not be as well-equipped as its rivals, but for people prioritizing practicality over everything else, Dodge Journey is the answer. While the rest of the competition has moved ahead with the latest technological advancements, Dodge Journey took a different route. Though affordable, it also remains to be the least equipped vehicle in the segment.

Expert Review

Overall Rating



With the base SE trim starting at $22,995, Dodge Journey sits at the bottom of this segment in terms of pricing. Although its 3.6L V6 unit is efficient and powerful, it lacks the punch that you'd expect from it. The Journey is a hardcore utilitarian and it flaunts one of the best build qualities here. That said, it pokes the territories of some well-established vehicles such as GMC Acadia, Kia Sorento, and Volkswagen Tiguan.

2019 Dodge Journey Features

4.0/10

Dodge offers the Journey in three trims and two engine options. The base SE is pretty basic and does not even have Bluetooth as a standard feature. Things don’t look too better with the CrossRoad trim either. It only has a few improvements over the former and some added creature comfort which is available in the base trim of most rivals. It’s only the range-topping GT that gets you something truly high-end with leather seats and a standard V6 unit under the hood, but then, this is also reflected in the price as well.

We Recommend

Buyers on a tight budget should be satisfied with the Journey SE equipped with Popular Equipment and Connectivity packages that gets you Bluetooth, rear-seat ventilation, and overhead storage.

Otherwise, you may go for the top-trim GT as it gets you a Uconnect Infotainment system and a seating package for both - the driver and the passenger. The Pentastar 3.6L V6 engine comes as standard with this trim and you will get the best of your money out of it.

2019 Dodge Journey Engine and Performance

Not only is the 2019 Journey’s V6 option the preferred choice, it’s actually a well-respected unit that powers several Jeep/Dodge vehicles. It’s refined, fuel-efficient and has some useful muscle.-Edmunds

If anything, the base in-line four unit is a joke for a vehicle that weighs over 3500 lbs. It produces a meager output of 173 horsepower, which is hilariously low even at the base SE price standards. This gets pretty evident as the Journey struggles to gain pace under heavy loads. Its automatic four-speed transmission further spoils the mood. It takes its own sweet time to downshift which could get frustrating while performing those overtaking maneuvers.

2019 Dodge journey engine

The V6 is a much better replacement with a decent 283 horsepower and 260 lb-ft of torque. It is the same motor that can be spotted in many of its Chrysler cousins, such as the Jeep Cherokee and the Chrysler 300C. Not just the powertrain but the top variant features a different drivetrain too. With a six-speed automatic discharging duties beneath the engine, the top-variant is miles ahead of the other two in terms of driveability and performance.

With the least power figures of the lot, the Tiguan sits out of the field in this battle. Mainly because in the battle of V6s, the puny 2.0L inline-four unit in the Tiguan is just out of proportions. Now with the Tiguan out of the competition here, the Journey emerges as the least powerful vehicle with a V6 in this comparison. The Acadia takes the first place with the Sorento following it closely. 

Acceleration

Overall, the Journey feels heavier than many other crossovers and doesn't inspire much driver confidence.- Edmunds

The base 2.5-liter inline-4 engine is woefully slow and takes good 10.4 seconds to reach 60 MPH from a standstill, making it the slowest in the class. The car might slow down further if you take it for a ride filled with passengers and stuff. All is not lost though as the 3.6-liter V-6 feels strong but it takes 7.4 seconds to go from 0-60 which is still very slow when compared to most rivals with similar engines.

The Acadia is the fastest vehicle in this comparison, hands down. Its 0-60 timings might be the same as the Sorento's but then the Acadia completely demolishes it when it comes to the quarter-mile timings. The Sorento comes in at second place which is then closely followed by Dodge Journey. As expected, the puny inline-4 wins the last position for the Tiguan.

Braking and Handling

The Journey is more of a highway hauler as it does not instill much confidence while cornering.-Edmunds

There are not many good things to say about Journey’s ride and handling. It handles winding roads perfectly at low speeds although there is a lot of body lean around turns. There is also a considerable amount of torque steer at high speeds which can get unsettling and scary for a new driver. Take it out on the highway and you will find it difficult to maintain a straight line. The automatic transmission is quite eager to upshift in most conditions and flat-footing the accelerator pedal will result in slow downshifts.

2019 Dodge Journey Handling

The Journey takes 129 feet to stop from 60-0 which is at par with the segment. The brakes feel firm even after repetitive use but the front end dives a lot which can scare you off for a minute there. However, its soft suspension setup also means that there are no compromises with the ride quality of the cabin. It soaks up bumps fairly well without translating much inside the cabin. It is pretty evident that the Journey isn't meant for spirited driving, however, it is bang on point for a calm and composed ride quality.

With 129ft of stopping on the tarmac, the Dodge Journey fares better than the Kia and the Volkswagen. Come to Acadia and it, yet again, blows everybody away. Inspite of being the heaviest contender here, it needs the smallest piece of stretch to come to a halt from 60 MPH.

Towing Capacity

It seems like age has taken its toll on the Dodge Journey. An outdated 2.4-liter inline-4 engine is only good enough to tow 1000 pounds which is very unimpressive as all its competitors provide far more towing capacity. Even with the V-6 engine, the maximum towing capacity is limited to 2500 pounds.

The Sorento leads the competition with an impressive 5000-pound towing capacity. The Acadia follows it to secure the second place and the Tiguan is left at the last.

2019 Dodge Journey Fuel Economy

The Journey seems too far to compete with the best when it comes to fuel economy. It gets the worst EPA rating in the class with the base engine scoring 19 MPG city, 25 MPG highway and 21 MPG combined. Going for the V-6 engine, the numbers drop further at 17 MPG in the city and 25 MPG on the highway.

The Tiguan's inline-four setup shows its true colors here in this department. It comes with the maximum EPA ratings of the lot. The Acadia grabs the second place and the Sorento and Journey stack up head-to-head with each other.

2019 Dodge Journey Interior

6.5/10

In spite of some questionable construction, material quality is above average with soft touch points and solid switchgear.-Edmunds

The Journey's interiors have been refreshed slightly, just enough to keep up with its segment. It gets improved cabin highlighted by a soft-touch, rich looking dashboard along with Dodge’s three-spoke corporate steering wheel. Seats are not that spacious as compared to others in the class. However, the first two rows are comfortable enough to hold adults while the third row boasts enough space for kids. The infotainment system is user-friendly but lacks Apple CarPlay or Android Auto support. The biggest negative point of the Dodge Journey is the shrunken cargo space despite its bigger size.

Seating and Comfort

The Dodge Journey is a highway hauler and the occupants won't mind spending hours inside. The car keeps its control on wobbly pavements and even on the rough terrain. Cabin noise is minimal but the slow-reacting transmission gets noisy while climbing steep hills. Adjustable seats make up for the cramped legroom in the second row. Drivers seats also get a six-way power adjustment with manual recline.

2019 dodge journey total seating capacity

The third row, like most SUVs in its segment, is not a very pleasant place to be in. There is less than adequate thigh support, let alone legroom, and the cushion is quite stiff too. A few minutes? Maybe. Hours? Not a chance. If you have kids though, these seats could make sense, otherwise, they are nothing more than a storage shelf.

All of the said cars can seat seven. However, in terms of passenger volume, the Acadia takes the lead with the maximum volume of 143.8 cu.ft. The Sorento's 138.6 cu.ft brings it to the second position. Both the left contenders stack up head to head with each other behind the first two. If observed carefully, the Journey's third-row-legroom is the least in this comparison making it the most "useless" of the lot.

Cargo Space

The rear load floor is high, making it harder to lift and load heavy items. With all the seats folded down, maximum cargo capacity is average for a small crossover SUV -Edmunds

Cargo capacity is below average for a vehicle of this size. The Journey has 10.7-cubic feet of cargo space behind the third row, 37-cubic feet behind the second and 67.7-cubic feet with both of them down. These figures put together a bleak future for the car as the rivals offer far better cargo capacity than the Journey. However, Dodge has very cleverly integrated storage compartments under the seats, and the front passenger seat folds down providing more space for longer items.

2019 Dodge journey cargo space

The tailgate opens high and wide enabling easier loading/unloading of luggage. The bulge from the fenders are also narrowed a bit squeezing out every extra inch of space possible. Not as low as the Tiguan, the Journey's floor is still at a decent height which doesn't require you to lift your luggage much while loading.

As stated above, the Journey is completely overpowered by the competition here. With the least possible cargo space behind the third row, it sits behind the lot here. However, the Journey lunges ahead of the Tiguan once the third row is folded down. The Acadia, with the biggest dimesnions of the lot, wins this competition, hands down. The Sorento doesn't fall much behind either.

Infotainment and features

The Journey gets the same Uconnect touchscreen which can also be spotted in some of Dodge's other offerings. The 8.4-inch touchscreen infotainment system which was optional earlier, now comes standard on the Crossroad and the GT trims. The base trim SE still has to do with a rather dated, 4.3-inch touchscreen unit. Overall, the touchscreen is intuitive and easy to use but Dodge uses FCA’s older software which refrains from gimmicky stuff and just means business, and also feels dated. How old? Well, its 2019 and you don't even get Apple CarPlay or Android Auto with it.

2019 dodge journey infotainment display

The transition between the menus is on the laggier side and the touch unit needs more than just a nudge to interact with. Considering Journey's price point, there is only so much you could get in it. However, if Dodge had offered better options under the optional equipment list, it would have sweetend the deal. That said, some of the infotainment features are:

  • USB Port
  • A six-speaker audio system
  • DVD Player
  • A 115-volt power outlet
  • Bluetooth Music Streaming

Interior Features

Although a barebone vehicle, the few highlights of the 2019 Dodge Journey's exterior are:

2019 Dodge Journey Exterior

Got your acid-wash jeans ready? Then you’re ready for a drive in the Dodge Journey, which hasn’t changed all that much since 2009, and seems almost ready for a throwback comeback, it’s been around so long -The Car Connection

Design and Styling

It looks bland and nearly the same as it debuted back in 2009 and mostly goes unnoticed on the road. Size-wise, it's 192.4-inches in length and exceeds most two-rows crossovers in the competition. Dodge designers have worked hard on its exterior with chrome-trimmed crosshair grille and aluminum-alloy wheel but the car still fails to impress. Come to the sides and the Journey looks more like a beefed-up station wagon.

2019 dodge journey side view

The base Journey looks pretty downscale with 17-inch steel alloy wheels and plastic hubcaps. Things get a little better in the CrossRoads as it gets alloy wheels, LED taillight, body colored exterior mirror and fog lamps. To get a more stylish look go for the GT which comes with 19-inch painted aluminum wheels, monochromatic treatment, and GT label. The Crossroad gives you a tougher look with faux skid plates, black aluminum wheels, and standard rail roof.

It is the biggest vehicle of the lot on the outside.

Exterior Features

While it isn't very evident, Dodge has made some exterior enhancements in the Journey for 2019. Some of these highlights include:

  • Body-colored door handles
  • Automatic headlamps with DRLs
  • Power foldable heated exterior mirrors
  • Intermittent front and rear windshield wipers
  • Chrome roof rails

2019 Dodge Journey Safety

The 2019 Dodge Journey GT is yet to be crash-tested on American soil, though last year's results seem promising. The 2018 variant passed NHTSA crash test rating with a 4-star score. On the other hand, IIHS marked the Journey as Good in their crash test. However, the driver side and Headlights were deemed Poor in the report.

Dodge didn't back the Journey with a lot of drivers assist features already active in the market like adaptive cruise control, forward collision, and blind-spot monitoring.

Safety Features

While there are a only handful of advanced safety features in the Journey, some of them are:

  • Post-Collision Safety System
  • Child Seat Anchors
  • Dual Front Side-Mounted Airbags
  • Stability Control
  • Emergency Braking Assist
  • Passenger Airbag Occupant Sensing Deactivation

2019 Dodge Journey Competition

Dodge Journey Vs GMC Acadia

With a seating capacity of seven in both of them, Dodge is also the cheaper one here. However, I would stop here as there is not much to talk about the Journey. Acadia meanwhile proves its money worth with an extensive list of features. GMC comes standard with a 6-speed automatic transmission while the Dodge Journey SE is equipped with an outdated 4-speed automatic. Dodge is, however, a good car for a family on tight budget.

GMC Acadia

Dodge Journey Vs Kia Sorento

There is no comparison here as the Sorento is one of the best midsize SUVs in the segment. If you are looking for a value-packed midsize SUV or a family-oriented vehicle then this is the car to go. It is safer, better put-together, and is reasonably priced as well so you will not feel the pinch in your pocket. For a premium of $3,000 over the Journey's MSRP, the Sorento offers better fuel efficiency, towing capacity, cargo space and many more features.

Kia Sorento

Dodge Journey Vs Volkswagen Tiguan

VW Tiguan impresses with the acceleration and better fuel economy but the Journey has more cargo space and better towing capacity. Tiguan bests the Journey in terms of second and third-row seating comfort as it offers better leg room. Also, the Tiguan is better built as compared to the Journey. However, its puny 2.0L unit standard across the lineup, feels lethargic. You, atleast, get to opt for a V-6 engine in the Journey which performs better. With $2,000 more expensive than the Journey, the Tiguan certainly asks for more than what it offers. Dodge Journey, despite lacking in some areas, sums up to be a better value for money.

Volkswagen Tiguan

2019 Dodge Journey Final Verdict

Overall, the Dodge Journey comes out as a mildly practical mid-size SUV at best. If you don’t have much cash to spare, it's a good option, no doubt about it. But with its low price comes so many trade-offs that you wonder if you should consider it at all. It has stiff competition from a number of superior vehicles in its class.

The GT trim will only get you so far. The V6 rules but with a wonky steering, it is difficult to control at high speeds. It doesn’t give you much confidence with safety either. We shall have to wait and see if any major overhauls followed up by next year, if at all.

FAQs

Is Dodge Journey a good car?

Unless you cannot afford to spare even $3,000 dollars over the MSRP of the Journey, we'd suggest you refrain from going for it. It has the least cargo volume and handling dynamics in its segment. Also, its V6 trim lines up with other rivals in the segment in terms of pricing. So if you can opt for the V6 trim, we think its better to choose another car altogether.

Is Dodge Journey underpowered?

The base two trims feature a smaller unit which finds it difficult to maintain spirited speeds. Overtaking needs to be planned and executed carefully. The top-trim's V6 unit is not much impressive either, however, it packs a little more punch than the former. 

Does Dodge offer any warranty with the Journey?

Yes, ofcourse. The Journey is backed up by a 3 year/36,000 mile warranty. For more information, head over to our features tab on the top of this page.

Should i buy a used Dodge Journey?

The Journey is not one of the well put-together vehicles in the segment. Also, its 2.4L, inline-4 unit hasn't proven to be very reliable either. We believe you could get better deals for the same price if you dig slightly more in the market.
