Comparison Review

Comfort
Rear passengers will be able to stretch out a lot more in the Dodge Journey than in the Ford EcoSport. The Ford EcoSport offers just a little more front head- and legroom than the Dodge Journey, offering the driver and front passenger a bit more room and comfort.

Convenience
Due to the larger tank size and better fuel economy of the Dodge Journey, you will definitely be making fewer stops at the gas station than with the Ford EcoSport.

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 Ford EcoSport. Another consideration is the Destination Charge, which is a standard charge for transporting the vehicle to the dealer from where it's built. The Destination Charge for the Dodge Journey is much higher than that for the Ford EcoSport.

Dimensions
Since the Dodge Journey is much wider than the Ford EcoSport, finding a wide enough spot in a parking lot may be a bit more challenging. 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 Ford EcoSport.

Drivetrain
With somewhat higher torque, the Dodge Journey transmits power to its wheels a bit more effectively than the Ford EcoSport.

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

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

Utility
The Dodge Journey offers greater seating capacity than the Ford EcoSport, making it a better choice for those who find themselves chauffeuring others around. With the Dodge Journey, you'll be able to haul more equipment or luggage than the Ford EcoSport.

Warranty
The Dodge Journey comes with essentially the same basic warranty as the Ford EcoSport.
