2016 Dodge Journey vs. 2015 Nissan Xterra Review

Comparison Review

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

Convenience
The Dodge Journey requires fewer stops at the gas station than the Nissan Xterra, 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). The Dodge Journey is somewhat more expensive than the Nissan Xterra. 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 Nissan Xterra.

Dimensions
The Dodge Journey is about the same width as the Nissan Xterra. 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 Nissan Xterra.

Drivetrain
With its lower torque engine, the Dodge Journey doesn't do as good a job transmitting power to its wheels as the Nissan Xterra.

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

Performance
In terms of towing capacity, the Nissan Xterra is clearly the choice over the Dodge Journey for pulling heavy loads. The Dodge Journey has a little more horsepower than the Nissan Xterra.

Utility
The Dodge Journey offers greater seating capacity than the Nissan Xterra, making it a better choice for those who find themselves chauffeuring others around. You'll be able to fit about the same amount of groceries in the Dodge Journey as you will in the Nissan Xterra.

Warranty
The Dodge Journey comes with essentially the same basic warranty as the Nissan Xterra.
