2018 Dodge Journey vs. 2017 Jeep Wrangler Unlimited Review

Comparison Review

Comfort
Passengers in the backseat will be able to stretch out a lot more in the Jeep Wrangler Unlimited 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 Wrangler Unlimited.

Convenience
The Dodge Journey requires fewer stops at the gas station than the Jeep Wrangler Unlimited, making it more convenient to drive.

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 Wrangler Unlimited. 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 Wrangler Unlimited have similar Destination Charges.

Dimensions
Since the Dodge Journey is much slimmer than the Jeep Wrangler Unlimited, it'll be much easier to find a wide enough space in a crowded parking lot. For some people, bigger is better. If that's the case for you, then you'll be happier with the Dodge Journey, which is slightly longer than the Jeep Wrangler Unlimited.

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

Handling
The Dodge Journey has a smaller turning radius than the Jeep Wrangler Unlimited, allowing you to more easily maneuver in and out of tight spots.

Performance
When considering towing capacity, the Dodge Journey is clearly the choice over the Jeep Wrangler Unlimited for pulling heavy loads. In terms of horsepower, it's a virtual tie between the Dodge Journey and the Jeep Wrangler Unlimited.

Utility
The Dodge Journey offers greater seating capacity than the Jeep Wrangler Unlimited, making it a better choice for those who find themselves chauffeuring others around. The Dodge Journey has less cargo space than the Jeep Wrangler Unlimited, which is okay if you don't need to move a lot in one trip.

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