Editor's Overview

In the world of 7-passenger SUVs, the 2018 Dodge Journey often gets overlooked. That’s a shame because the Journey has some very appealing qualities. The 4-cylinder SE is the lowest-priced 3-row SUV on the market, undercutting the Hyundai Santa Fe and Ford Flex by thousands. A lack of advanced driver-safety assists, however, may be a deal killer.

2018 Dodge Journey great family car!

We love our 2018 Dodge Journey. It is big enough to fit our entire family and we feel like we have extra space and growing room. It is roomy and comfortable. When the third row seats are down we have plenty of storage in the back to accommodate most things that we need to transport. When the third row is up we can transport 7 people comfortably which helps when traveling with extended family. The car drives and handles great and gets great gas mileage as well.

My Dodge Journey is an excellent addition to the family!

I enjoy the space my car has and the smoothness of the ride, whereas other vehicles I have had have been rough to ride in. I love the face we have cooler compartments in either side of the back seats and a big cooler compartments in the very back, because our Dodge can help be the cooler for drinks at any given party whether it be a small gathering or a huge party! The cooler spots are great for storage during travel as well.

Dodge Journey review after one week.

Smooth ride nice to sit up high gas mileage could be better the car is good looking and is very easy to maneuver around. The backup camera is in the rear view mirror instead of on the console. The back seats have quite a bit of keg room. The third seat has less leg room, but the second row of seats can be slowed forward. The bac has enough room to haul things, and if you need more, the third row of seats can be laid down.
