With the stampede of new crossovers and SUVs in the market, it would be easy to overlook the 2017 Dodge Journey. This midsize crossover has been with us in pretty much the same form for nine years now and counting. Developed and introduced in the chaotic times surrounding the bankruptcy of Chrysler and its subsequent link up with Fiat, the Journey is a survivor. And despite its shaky start in 2009, the Journey's constant upgrades and improvements have brought it to the point that it now outsells all other Dodge cars and SUVs.
For 2017, Dodge offers four versions of the Journey: the basic SE ($21,145), mainstream SXT ($25,045), stylish Crossroad ($26,445) and loaded GT ($31,945). All-wheel drive versions cost a few thousand dollars more, in part because you have to upgrade from the base four-cylinder engine to a V6 in order to get AWD.
