Comparison Review

Comfort
The Dodge Journey offers rear passengers about the same room to stretch out as the Jeep Renegade, 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 Jeep Renegade.

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 Jeep Renegade.

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 Jeep Renegade. Another consideration is the Destination Charge, which is a standard charge for transporting the vehicle to the dealer from where it's built. Both the Dodge Journey and the Jeep Renegade have similar Destination Charges.

Dimensions
Since the Dodge Journey is much slimmer than the Jeep Renegade, it'll be much easier to find a wide enough space in a crowded parking lot. 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 Jeep Renegade.

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

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

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

Utility
The Dodge Journey offers greater seating capacity than the Jeep Renegade, 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 Jeep Renegade.

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