2016 Dodge Journey vs. 2016 Toyota RAV4 Review

Comparison Review

Comfort
The Dodge Journey offers rear passengers about the same room to stretch out as the Toyota RAV4, with comparable 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 Toyota RAV4.

Convenience
You'll be making about the same number of stops at the gas station with the Dodge Journey as you will with the Toyota RAV4, 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 Toyota RAV4. 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 Toyota RAV4.

Dimensions
The Dodge Journey is about the same width as the Toyota RAV4. 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 Toyota RAV4.

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 Toyota RAV4.

Handling
The Dodge Journey has a larger turning radius than the Toyota RAV4, 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 Toyota RAV4 for pulling heavy loads. When it comes to horsepower, the Dodge Journey greatly out-muscles the Toyota RAV4.

Utility
The Dodge Journey offers greater seating capacity than the Toyota RAV4, making it a better choice for those who find themselves chauffeuring others around. The Dodge Journey has less cargo space than the Toyota RAV4, 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 Toyota RAV4.
