Crossovers are built on a car-like structure but combine the utility of a traditional truck-based SUV with the smoother ride and improved fuel economy of a car.
Dodge hasn't chosen the sporty path for Journey. The Journey rides reasonably well and handles more like a big car than a big, clunky SUV, but it's no when it comes to sporty flair.
The Dodge Journey is available with a V6 engine that delivers adequate power, but is far from the best in the class. The V6, which is standard in all but the base model, offers plenty of power for around town, a 3,500-pound towing capacity, and decent passing punch. Unfortunately, it is neither as refined nor as powerful as the newer V6s offered by several competitors. The base four-cylinder engine is coarse and offers too little power for a vehicle of this size.
