2014 Dodge Journey review: Our expert's take

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.
