2017 Chevrolet Equinox vs. 2016 Dodge Journey Review

Comparison Review

Comfort
Rear passengers will be able to stretch out a lot more in the Chevrolet Equinox than in the Dodge Journey. As far as headroom and legroom go, there's not much difference between front seat comfort in the Chevrolet Equinox and the Dodge Journey.

Convenience
You'll be making about the same number of stops at the gas station with the Chevrolet Equinox as you will with the Dodge Journey, as they are both able to travel similar distances on a tank of gas.

Cost
There are a lot of factors to consider when calculating the overall cost of a vehicle. The main consideration is Manufacturer's Suggested Retail Price (MSRP). When looking only at MSRP, the Chevrolet Equinox will have less of an impact on your bank account than the Dodge Journey. Another consideration is the Destination Charge, which is a standard charge for transporting the vehicle to the dealer from where it's built. The Chevrolet Equinox carries a much lower Destination Charge than the Dodge Journey.

Dimensions
The Chevrolet Equinox is about the same width as the Dodge Journey. The Chevrolet Equinox is slightly shorter than the Dodge Journey, which may make it easier to park.

Drivetrain
The Chevrolet Equinox has much lower torque than the Dodge Journey, which generally means that it won't feel as fast or powerful.

Handling
The Chevrolet Equinox has a larger turning radius than the Dodge Journey, making it slightly more difficult to maneuver in and out of tight spots.

Performance
In terms of towing capacity, the Dodge Journey is clearly the choice over the Chevrolet Equinox for pulling heavy loads. When it comes to horsepower, the Chevrolet Equinox has a lot less horsepower than the Dodge Journey.

Utility
The Chevrolet Equinox has less seating than the Dodge Journey, making the Dodge Journey the better choice, if you need to chauffeur many passengers. The Chevrolet Equinox has less cargo space than the Dodge Journey, which is okay if you don't need to move a lot in one trip.

Warranty
The Chevrolet Equinox comes with essentially the same basic warranty as the Dodge Journey.
