2018 Dodge Journey vs. 2018 Jeep Wrangler Review

Comparison Review

Comfort
Passengers in the back seat may find themselves a little more cramped in the Dodge Journey than the Jeep Wrangler. The Jeep Wrangler will be a hit with tall drivers and their front seat passengers, since it has greater front head- and legroom than the Dodge Journey.

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 Wrangler, 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). The Dodge Journey is somewhat more expensive than the Jeep Wrangler. Another consideration is the Destination Charge, which is a standard charge for transporting the vehicle to the dealer from where it's built. In this case, the Dodge Journey will cost less to deliver to the dealership than the Jeep Wrangler.

Dimensions
Since the Dodge Journey is much slimmer than the Jeep Wrangler, it'll be much easier to find a wide enough space in a crowded parking lot. 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 Wrangler.

Drivetrain
With similar torque, the Dodge Journey and the Jeep Wrangler are about even in transmitting their respective horsepower to the wheels.

Handling
The Dodge Journey has a significantly larger turning radius than the Jeep Wrangler, making it much 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 Wrangler for pulling heavy loads. In terms of horsepower, it's a virtual tie between the Dodge Journey and the Jeep Wrangler.

Utility
Soccer Moms and those who need to chauffeur around a lot of people will appreciate the Dodge Journey more than the Jeep Wrangler, due to its significantly greater seating capacity. With the Dodge Journey, you'll be able to haul more equipment or luggage than the Jeep Wrangler.

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