Comparison Review

Comfort
Passengers in the backseat will be able to stretch out a lot more in the Dodge Journey than in the Chevrolet Trax, due to its greater head- and legroom. The Dodge Journey offers just a little more front head- and legroom than the Chevrolet Trax, offering the driver and front passenger a bit more room and comfort.

Convenience
With the Dodge Journey, you will definitely be making fewer stops at the gas station than with the Chevrolet Trax, 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 Trax 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 Trax carries a much lower Destination Charge than the Dodge Journey.

Dimensions
Since the Chevrolet Trax 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 Chevrolet Trax, you'll have a much easier time finding a large enough space to park than you will with the Dodge Journey.

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

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

Performance
When it comes to horsepower, the Chevrolet Trax has a lot less horsepower than the Dodge Journey.

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

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