2014 Dodge Journey vs. 2014 Jeep Compass Review

Comparison Review


Comfort
Passengers in the backseat will be able to stretch out a lot more in the Jeep Compass than in the Dodge Journey, due to its greater head- and legroom. As far as headroom and legroom go, there's not much difference between front seat comfort in the Dodge Journey and the Jeep Compass.

Convenience
Due to the larger tank size and better fuel economy of the Dodge Journey, you will definitely be making fewer stops at the gas station than with the Jeep Compass.

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). The Dodge Journey is somewhat more expensive than the Jeep Compass. Another consideration is the Destination Charge, which is a standard charge for transporting the vehicle to the dealer from where it's built. Both the Dodge Journey and the Jeep Compass have similar Destination Charges.

Dimensions
The Dodge Journey is a little wider than the Jeep Compass, so getting in and out of the car in a crowded parking lot may be a little more of a squeeze. 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 Compass.

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 Compass.

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

Performance
In terms of towing capacity, the Jeep Compass is clearly the choice over the Dodge Journey for pulling heavy loads. When it comes to horsepower, the Dodge Journey greatly out-muscles the Jeep Compass.

Utility
The Dodge Journey offers greater seating capacity than the Jeep Compass, 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 Compass.

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