Comparison Review

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

Convenience
With the Dodge Journey, you will definitely be making fewer stops at the gas station than with the Chevrolet Trailblazer, 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). Whether you pick the Chevrolet Trailblazer or the Dodge Journey, it's going to cost you about the same. Another consideration is the Destination Charge, which is a standard charge for transporting the vehicle to the dealer from where it's built. The Chevrolet Trailblazer carries a much lower Destination Charge than the Dodge Journey.

Dimensions
The Chevrolet Trailblazer is a little narrower than the Dodge Journey, so you'll have an easier time getting in and out of the car in a tight parking spot. If you go with the Chevrolet Trailblazer, you'll have a much easier time finding a large enough space to park than you will with the Dodge Journey.

Performance
The Chevrolet Trailblazer has a little less horsepower than the Dodge Journey.

Powertrain
With similar torque, the Chevrolet Trailblazer and the Dodge Journey are about even in transmitting their respective horsepower to the wheels.

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

Warranty
The Chevrolet Trailblazer comes with essentially the same basic warranty as the Dodge Journey.
