The incredible enthusiasm for crossover SUVs that has infected the American buying public of the past decade has somehow not found its way to the Dodge Journey. It’s not the Journey’s fault. It is a well-styled, useful and accommodating vehicle, but buyers don’t buy what they don’t know about, and the Journey has been a well-kept secret.
For sheer size for the dollar, the Journey is one of the biggest bargains on the market. It seats seven and is almost 10 inches longer than the similarly priced Chevrolet Equinox. Even though the passengers in the third row don’t find sumptuous accommodations, the fact that this crossover with a base price well under $24,000 is able to seat seven should give it a big boost. But again, its light is hidden under a bushel. When considering an SUV, many FCA customers turn immediately to Jeep. For those seeking an inexpensive three-row crossover vehicle, the Dodge Journey will fill the bill.
