2017 Jeep Patriot vs. 2017 Dodge Journey Review

Comparison Review

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

Convenience
With the Dodge Journey, you will definitely be making fewer stops at the gas station than with the Jeep Patriot, due to its tank size and fuel economy.

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). Clearly, the Jeep Patriot is a better financial choice over the Dodge Journey, when considering MSRP. Another consideration is the Destination Charge, which is a standard charge for transporting the vehicle to the dealer from where it's built. The Jeep Patriot carries a much lower Destination Charge than the Dodge Journey.

Dimensions
Since the Jeep Patriot is much slimmer than the Dodge Journey, it'll be much easier to find a wide enough space in a crowded parking lot. If you go with the Jeep Patriot, you'll have a much easier time finding a large enough space to park than you will with the Dodge Journey.

Drivetrain
The Jeep Patriot has much lower torque than the Dodge Journey, which generally means that it won't feel as fast or powerful.

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

Performance
In terms of towing capacity, the Dodge Journey is clearly the choice over the Jeep Patriot for pulling heavy loads. When it comes to horsepower, the Jeep Patriot has a lot less horsepower than the Dodge Journey.

Utility
The Jeep Patriot has less seating than the Dodge Journey, making the Dodge Journey the better choice, if you need to chauffeur many passengers. The Jeep Patriot has significantly less cargo capacity than the Dodge Journey.

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