2017 Dodge Journey vs. 2017 Jeep Cherokee Review

Comparison Review

Comfort
Passengers in the backseat will be able to stretch out a lot more in the Jeep Cherokee than in the Dodge Journey, due to its greater head- and legroom. The Dodge Journey offers just a little more front head- and legroom than the Jeep Cherokee, making it a little more comfortable for the driver and front passenger.

Convenience
You'll be making about the same number of stops at the gas station with the Dodge Journey as you will with the Jeep Cherokee, 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 Dodge Journey will have less of an impact on your bank account than the Jeep Cherokee. Another consideration is the Destination Charge, which is a standard charge for transporting the vehicle to the dealer from where it's built. The Dodge Journey will cost more in terms of transportation costs than the Jeep Cherokee.

Dimensions
The Dodge Journey is a little narrower than the Jeep Cherokee, so you'll have an easier time getting in and out of the car in a tight parking spot. If you go with the Dodge Journey, you may be circling the block looking for a space large enough to park more often than with the Jeep Cherokee.

Drivetrain
Due to its much higher torque, the Dodge Journey does a much better job of transmitting its engine's horsepower to its wheels than the Jeep Cherokee.

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

Performance
When considering towing capacity, the Dodge Journey is clearly the choice over the Jeep Cherokee for pulling heavy loads. The Dodge Journey has a little more horsepower than the Jeep Cherokee.

Utility
The Dodge Journey offers greater seating capacity than the Jeep Cherokee, making it a better choice for those who find themselves chauffeuring others around. The Dodge Journey has a roomier cargo area for putting your bags or other items than the Jeep Cherokee.

Warranty
The Dodge Journey comes with essentially the same basic warranty as the Jeep Cherokee.
