Dodge Journey vs Competition

Dodge Journey vs Ford Escape

Are you looking for a compact SUV that doesn’t sacrifice interior space or performance? The all-new Dodge Journey is just the ticket. In order to further illustrate its worth, we’ve compared it to one of its most popular competitors, the Ford Escape. Let’s see how the Journey stacks-up in comparison.


Journey vs. Escape: Compare Value

Get more bang for your buck with the capable Dodge Journey. Its incredibly efficient design is available at a starting MSRP of $20,695. Compared to the Escape — that kicks off at $23,100 — the Journey is the gift that keeps on giving. Pay less up front and continue to save money down the line with an aerodynamic build that achieves an impressive 31 miles per gallon on the highway.


Journey vs. Escape: Compare Interior Space

When it comes to offering premium space for passengers and cargo, no other crossover or compact SUV compares to the Dodge Journey. With comfortable seating for 7, the Journey has plenty of space for your entire family. The Escape falls short, only seating 5, with far less leg and head room. The bottom line? With the interior space of the Dodge Journey, you’ll be able to accommodate for whoever wants to come along for the ride.


Journey vs. Escape: Compare Technology

Loaded with everything that you need to stay connected, the Dodge Journey is a techie’s dream. The center console is equipped with the largest touchscreen in its class for easy weather, navigation and vehicle information. In addition, the Journey offers SiriusXM Satellite radio, WiFi Hotspot capabilities, and multiple power outlets for your driving pleasure. The Ford Escape, while tech-savvy in its own right, fails to offer the full-suite of features that come standard with the Journey.


Dodge Journey vs Subaru Outback

Are you in the market for a capable new crossover? The all-new Dodge Journey brings exhilarating power, advanced technology and premium space to your drive, for less! Let’s get acquainted with our favorite crossover as we compare it to one of its top competitors: the Subaru Outback. Read on to discover which ride pulls ahead.


Journey vs. Outback: Compare Power

Both of our competitors offer multiple engine options, but when we’re looking at getting the most bang for your buck, the Dodge Journey comes out on top. When your workday calls for more power, opt for the award-winning 3.6-liter Pentastar V6 engine that offers an impressive 283 horsepower and 260 lb-ft of torque. The most powerful engine available for the Subaru Outback falls short, as its high-performing 6-cylinder engine delivers only 256 horsepower.


Journey vs. Outback: Compare Interior Space

If you’re in the market for a crossover that offers enhanced interior space, you can’t go wrong with Dodge Journey. With three rows of comfortable seating, you’ll have more space for your entire gang. Or, if cargo space is what you crave — simply fold the seatbacks down for up to 67.6 cubic feet of cargo room. The Outback, while relatively spacious, does not offer third row stadium style seating.


Journey vs. Outback: Compare Technology

The Subaru Outback is most well-known for its Subaru STARLINK technology, featuring an available 7-inch in-dash touch screen with voice controls. While this is an impressive system, the Dodge Journey simply takes things a step further. Presenting the largest touchscreen in its class, the Journey is home to Radio 8.4 NAV.
