2015 Dodge Journey Review

The 2015 Dodge Journey is one of the lowest-ranking midsize SUVs. It has underwhelming engine power, a below-average reliability rating, and less cargo space than rival SUVs.

Pros & Cons

  • Intuitive infotainment system
  • Underwhelming engine choices
  • Poor fuel economy
  • Low reliability rating
  • Below-average cargo space

2015 Dodge Journey Overview

Is the 2015 Dodge Journey a Good Used SUV?

The 2015 Dodge Journey is not a good midsize SUV. Its base engine struggles to deliver adequate power for highway driving and returns subpar fuel economy. Cargo space is small for the class, and the Journey’s safety scores are well below class average. Still, even the worst vehicles have their redeeming qualities. The Journey has an easy-to-use infotainment system, an available third row, and a price tag that’s typically lower than the class average. However, in a big class with lots of excellent SUVs, you’re better off purchasing one of the Journey’s competitors.

How Much Does the 2015 Dodge Journey Cost to Own?

The 2015 Dodge Journey’s estimated five-year costs for gas, insurance, maintenance, and repairs are about $25,600. This is in line with other SUVs in the class.

Is It Better to Buy a Used or New Journey?

The 2019 Dodge Journey starts at $23,645. Aside from some shuffling of trims between the 2015 and 2018 model years, the Journey saw only one major change during this period. The previously optional third-row seat became standard in the 2018 Journey. You’ll save a lot of money with a used model, and you won’t have to sacrifice much in the way of features.

Which Model Year of the Dodge Journey Is Best?

The Journey debuted for 2009 and has undergone few changes since. For 2011, a new V6 engine became available, and the interior was refreshed. Apart from this, the changes were limited to a shuffling of trim names. Given the Journey’s history of poor reliability, we recommend checking out Dodge’s certified pre-owned program.

Which Used Dodge Journey Is Right for Me?

The 2015 Dodge Journey comes in seven trim levels: AVP, SE, SXT, SXT Plus, Crossroad, Limited, and R/T. The base AVP trim includes push-button start, the Uconnect infotainment system with a 4.3-inch touch screen, six speakers, two 12-volt power outlets, a USB port, and dual-zone automatic climate control. The SE trim adds some cosmetic upgrades. The SXT builds on the SE trim with an MP3 CD player and satellite radio for the infotainment system.

We recommend the Dodge Journey SXT Plus for most shoppers because it has the best combination of features and value. It comes with an 8.4-inch touch-screen Uconnect infotainment system, a fold-flat passenger seat with in-cushion storage, and power-adjustable front seats.

The Crossroad trim mostly features cosmetic enhancements. The Limited has heated seats, a DVD player in the infotainment system, Uconnect Voice Command with Bluetooth, and a 115-volt auxiliary power outlet. The R/T builds on the Limited with leather-trimmed seats that have perforated inserts and red accent stitching, six premium speakers with a subwoofer and a 368-watt amplifier, and a high-performance suspension.

Certified Pre-Owned Dodge Journey Warranty

Dodge offers a CPO program for vehicles five years old or less and with fewer than 75,000 miles. Eligibility is determined by the vehicle’s initial sale date. For its certified pre-owned vehicles, Dodge extends the original new-car powertrain warranty to seven years or 100,000 miles. CPO vehicles also get a three-month/3,000-mile Maximum Coverage Care warranty. There are restrictions related to mileage and models, so read the Dodge warranty page carefully.

Based on our analysis, Dodge’s certified pre-owned program is decent. However, rivals like Chevrolet, Honda, and Toyota offer more robust programs.

2015 Dodge Journey Versus the Competition

Which Is Better: 2015 Dodge Journey or 2015 Chevrolet Equinox?

While the 2015 Chevrolet Equinox doesn’t have a third row of seats, it’s a better vehicle than the Journey in almost every other way. The Equinox is a compact SUV that has good cargo space, with only about 4 cubic feet less than the midsize Journey’s cargo area. The Chevy has a stronger base engine than the Journey, and it gets better gas mileage than the Dodge, with 22 mpg in the city and 31 mpg highway compared to the Journey’s rating of 19/25 mpg city/highway. The Equinox earns a top-notch reliability rating, while the Journey has the lowest reliability rating a vehicle can earn.

Which Is Better: 2015 Dodge Journey or 2015 Hyundai Santa Fe?

The 2015 Hyundai Santa Fe is available as a two- or three-row midsize SUV. In both configurations, the Santa Fe is superior to the Journey. The Santa Fe Sport has two rows of seats and provides a maximum cargo capacity of 71.5 cubic feet. The larger three-row Santa Fe GLS and Limited have a maximum cargo capacity of 80 cubic feet. Both Santa Fe models have premium interior materials and straightforward infotainment systems. The Santa Fe Sport has a smooth ride, but the three-row version rides a bit firm. All Santa Fe models have comfortable seats and plenty of engine power for highway passing and merging.

2015 Journey Performance

How Does the 2015 Dodge Journey Drive?

The 2015 Dodge Journey comes standard with a 173-horsepower four-cylinder engine and a four-speed automatic transmission. The base engine is underpowered and noisy, and the base transmission is unrefined. For sufficient power delivery, you’ll need to upgrade to the available 283-horsepower V6 engine, which is paired with a six-speed automatic transmission.

This Dodge has a comfortable ride that remains smooth over road imperfections. The Journey also maneuvers around corners confidently with limited body roll. Front-wheel drive is standard, and all-wheel drive is available in V6 models.

Does the 2015 Dodge Journey Get Good Gas Mileage?

The base 2015 Journey has some of the poorest fuel economy estimates in the class, with 19 mpg in the city and 25 mpg on the highway. The V6 engine’s gas mileage dips to 17/25 mpg city/highway, and all-wheel-drive models shave another 1 mpg off those numbers.

2015 Dodge Journey Towing Capacity

The Journey can tow up to 2,500 pounds when properly equipped.

2015 Journey Interior

How Many People Does the 2015 Journey Seat?

The 2015 Dodge Journey seats five, and an available third row bumps that number to seven. However, the third row feels cramped. Cloth upholstery comes standard, and available seating amenities include leather upholstery, a power-adjustable driver’s seat, heated front seats, and built-in second-row booster seats. The Journey has good in-cabin storage and an available fold-flat front passenger seat with a storage compartment beneath the cushion.

How Many Car Seats Fit in the 2015 Dodge Journey?

In the second row, there are two complete sets of LATCH car-seat connectors on the outboard seats and a tether connection with one lower anchor for the middle seat. There are no third-row LATCH connectors. The Insurance Institute for Highway Safety gave this system the second-lowest rating of Marginal for ease of use. The tether anchors are difficult to access and could be confused with other hardware, and some of the lower anchors are recessed too deep in their seats.

2015 Dodge Journey Features

The base Journey features an easy-to-use Uconnect 4.3-inch touch screen, keyless entry with push-button start, and dual-zone automatic climate control. There’s also an available 8.4-inch Uconnect system, which has sharper graphics and an easier-to-use interface than you’ll find in most midsize SUVs. Other available features include navigation, remote start, tri-zone automatic climate control, and a rear-seat entertainment system with a 9-inch screen.
