2017 Journey Overview

If you need a minivan but don't want a minivan, the Dodge Journey is for you.Except for the doors, that's basically what it is.It's the most affordable seven-seat crossover on the market.It's also the longest running without a redesign.It hasn't gotten the attention of Chrysler in the way that the Dodge Durango or the Jeeps have.

Base engine is a 2.4-liter four-cylinder making just 173 horsepower, mated to an obsolete 4-speed automatic transmission.That powertrain is inexpensive but outdated.

Chrysler's fine 3.6-liter V6 is the upgrade engine and is necessary to move the 5000-pound Journey.It makes a that's-more-like-it 283 horsepower and 260 pound-feet of torque, mated to a 6-speed automatic.Front-wheel drive is standard, and all-wheel drive available.

Without modern technology, the four-cylinder engine gets 19/25 mpg City/Highway, or 21 miles per gallon Combined, while the much more powerful V6 gets an EPA-estimated 16/24/19 mpg.

Because of its ancient design, the Journey doesn't score all that well in crash tests.It gets an acceptable four stars overall from the NHTSA, but scores a Poor on the IIHS's difficult small-overlap frontal crash test.

Still, the thing is, the base Journey SE is special.There's nothing like its affordability and utility.The Hyundai Santa Fe with three rows is a better car than the Journey SE, but it's more costly.The upper-scale Journey models with the V6 are better, but no better than their competition.

For 2017, the R/T models have been rebadged as GT.
