2014 Dodge Journey Review

from the Cars.com expert editorial team

What Is the 2014 Dodge Journey?

The 2014 Dodge Journey is a mid-size SUV that competes with the Ford Edge, Honda Pilot, Honda CR-V, Toyota RAV4 and Toyota Highlander. It seats up to seven and comes in SE, SXT, Crossroad, Limited and R/T trim levels, all of which are available in front- or all-wheel drive.

What's New on the 2014 Dodge Journey?

The 2014 Dodge Journey Limited replaces the previous Crew trim, and satellite radio is now available in all trim levels.

How Does the 2014 Dodge Journey Compare to other Mid-Size SUVs?

The Dodge Journey has similar features to the mid-size Toyota Highlander at a lower starting price, and it also costs less than the compact RAV4, CR-V and Escape. The seating position is lower, and handling is less SUV-like than that of the Ford Edge. A standard four-speed transmission results in poor fuel economy compared with its competition, and legroom is narrower as well.

What Features in the 2014 Dodge Journey Are Most Important?

Standard performance features include a 173-horsepower, 2.4-liter four-cylinder engine, a four-speed automatic transmission and front-wheel drive. The four-cylinder engine supplies 1,000 pounds of towing capacity. Opt for the available 283-hp, 3.6-liter V-6 engine and the towing capacity increases to 2,500 pounds. It's paired with a six-speed automatic transmission and either front- or all-wheel drive.

Significant standard features include a crosshair grille, flared fenders, power heated side mirrors, 17-inch wheels, fabric-covered seats, a tilt/telescoping steering wheel with audio controls, manual air conditioning, second-row floor bins, a 4.3-inch touchscreen stereo, an MP3 jack and a USB port.

Available features include LED taillights, fog lights, dual exhaust tips, 19-inch aluminum wheels, roof rails, a power moonroof, leather-trimmed seats, heated front seats, built-in second-row booster seats, an 8.4-inch touchscreen system, Infinity premium stereo, automatic air conditioning and a storage compartment inside front passenger seat.

Standard safety features include antilock brakes, side curtain airbags, a driver's knee airbag, side-impact airbags for the front seats, front active head restraints and an electronic stability system with electronic roll mitigation and trailer-sway control. A backup camera and rear parking sensors are available.

Should I Buy the 2014 Dodge Journey?

The Dodge Journey is worth your money if you value a smooth ride, great maneuverability and less body roll than other SUVs. Inside the vehicle, the available 8.4-inch touchscreen is easy to use. However, the six-speed automatic transmission included with the V-6 engine can downshift abruptly, the brakes tend to be mushy and unresponsive and the dashboard buttons aren't as classy as the rest of the interior.

Very reliable vehicle

by Sylvia from Cincinnati, Ohio on July 7, 2019

We bought this car new in 2014. It has exceeded our expectations. It has required no major repairs. We have only had routine maintenance on it. It's large enough to accommodate people and cargo as we ... Read full review

Love everything about it

by D&D H from Carterville on July 1, 2019

This car is very spacious, comfortable and the 3rd row seat was a big selling point for me. I love the ease of use with all the controls. Read full review

Warranty FAQs

What is a Bumper-to-Bumper warranty?

Often called a basic warranty or new-vehicle warranty, a bumper-to-bumper policy covers components like air conditioning, audio systems, vehicle sensors, fuel systems and major electrical components. Most policies exclude regular maintenance like fluid top offs and oil changes, but a few brands have separate free-maintenance provisions, and those that do offer them is slowly rising. Bumper-to-bumper warranties typically expire faster than powertrain warranties.

What is a Powertrain warranty?

Don't be misled a 10-year or 100,000-mile powertrain warranty doesn't promise a decade of free repairs for your car. It typically covers just the engine and transmission, along with any other moving parts that lead to the wheels, like the driveshaft and constant velocity joints. Some automakers also bundle seat belts and airbags into their powertrain warranties. With a few exceptions, powertrain warranties don't cover regular maintenance like engine tuneups and tire rotations.

What is included in Roadside Assistance?

Some automakers include roadside assistance with their bumper-to-bumper or powertrain warranties, while others have separate policies. These programs cover anything from flat-tire changes and locksmith services to jump-starts and towing. Few reimburse incidental costs like motel rooms (if you have to wait for repairs).

What other services could be included in a warranty?

Some automakers include free scheduled maintenance for items such as oil changes, air filters and tire rotations. Some include consumables including brake pads and windshield wipers; others do not. They are typically for the first couple of years of ownership of a new car.

What does CPO mean?

A certified pre-owned or CPO car has been inspected to meet minimum quality standards and typically includes some type of warranty. While dealers and third parties certify cars, the gold standard is an automaker-certified vehicle that provides a factory-backed warranty, often extending the original coverage. Vehicles must be in excellent condition and have low miles and wear to be certified, which is why off-lease vehicles feed many CPO programs.
