2015 Dodge Journey Review

As one of the lowest ranking SUVs in its class, the 2015 Dodge Journey has underwhelming engine power, subpar fuel economy, a below-average predicted reliability rating, and less cargo space than rival crossovers. 

Pros & Cons

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

2015 Dodge Journey Overview

Is the 2015 Dodge Journey a Good Used SUV?

With ho-hum engine choices, poor safety scores, and limited cargo space, you’re better off with another midsize SUV. An easy-to-use infotainment system and an available third row are among its few redeeming features.

Used 2015 Dodge Journey Performance and Interior

Acceleration with the Journey’s standard four-cylinder engine is slow and noisy. Upgrading to the available Pentastar V6 engine results in more power, but fuel economy suffers. The Journey returns 16-19 mpg in the city and 24-25 mpg on the highway, which is low for the class. The base four-cylinder comes with a four-speed automatic transmission, and the V6 uses a six-speed automatic. The Journey has secure handling and a comfortable ride. Front-wheel drive comes standard, and all-wheel drive is available (only with the V6).

The Journey’s cabin features soft-touch finishes and an available third row of seats, but its competitors offer better seating comfort and more cargo room. The Journey seats five, and an available third row bumps that number to seven. However, the third row feels cramped. In the second row, there are two complete sets of LATCH car-seat connectors in the outboard seats and a tether-only connection in the middle seat. There are no third-row LATCH connectors. Available seating amenities include leather upholstery, a power-adjustable driver’s seat, heated front seats, and built-in second-row booster seats. Although the Journey has good in-cabin storage and an available fold-flat front passenger seat with a storage compartment beneath the cushion, rivals offer more overall cargo space.

The base Journey features an easy-to-use Uconnect 4.3-inch touch screen, keyless entry with push-button start, and dual-zone climate control. There’s also an available 8.4-inch Uconnect system, which has sharper graphics and an easier-to-use interface than what you’ll find in other 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.

How Safe Is the Journey?

The 2015 Journey earned mixed scores from the Insurance Institute for Highway Safety. While it received a Good score (the best possible) in four of the five tests performed, it scored a Poor (the lowest rating) in the small overlap front test, which measures a vehicle’s crashworthiness in the event of a collision with an object like a telephone pole, tree, or corner of another vehicle. 

A rearview camera and rear parking sensors are available in the Journey. Some of the Journey’s competitors offer driver assistance features like blind spot monitoring and adaptive cruise control.

Should I Consider Another Used Journey?

Since its debut for 2009, the Journey has seen few major changes other than some engine and appearance updates for 2011. Buying a model that’s a few years older will save you money, and you won’t miss out on any key features.

Which Used Dodge Journey Is Right for Me?

The 2015 Dodge Journey comes in seven trim levels: AVP, SE, SXT, SXT Plus, Crossroad, R/T, and Limited. For the best mix of features and value, go for the Dodge Journey SXT. It comes with the 8.4-inch touch-screen Uconnect infotainment system, a fold-flat passenger seat with in-cushion storage, and power-adjustable front seats.

A certified pre-owned Journey may be your best bet. For CPO Dodge vehicles, the original new-car powertrain warranty is extended 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.

2015 Dodge Journey and Other SUVs to Consider

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

If you can do without a third row of seats, the Chevy Equinox, a compact SUV, is a better overall value than the Journey. Unlike the Journey, it comes standard with a Wi-Fi hot spot and satellite radio. Although the Equinox’s available infotainment system occasionally lags, it’s easy to use. The Equinox earns a top-notch predicted reliability rating from J.D. Power & Associates; quite the opposite of the Journey’s rating. The Equinox’s base engine has underwhelming power but decent gas mileage. An available V6 has good power for most driving situations, but fuel economy suffers.

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

The Hyundai Santa Fe has an available third row of seats, premium interior materials, and a straightforward infotainment system. It comes in two body styles: the Santa Fe and the Santa Fe Sport. The latter has seating for five in two rows and a decent 71.5 cubic feet of cargo space. The 3-row Santa Fe is larger and has more room for cargo than the Journey. Although the Santa Fe Sport has a smooth ride, the 3-row version rides firmly. All Santa Fe models have comfortable seats and plenty of engine power for highway passing and merging, which isn’t the case with the Journey.
