2010 Dodge Journey crossover comparisons to competitors

Dodge Journey test drive.

Ford Edge is the most frequently cross-shopped vehicle against the AWD Journey; Chevrolet Equinox is the second most frequently cross-shopped vehicle. Despite power ratings, the Edge feels fairly slow and dull compared with the Journey V6, which doesn't have strong sprint times but is more responsive, reacting quickly to the gas pedal. The Equinox four-cylinder generally feels spongy around town but isn't a bad highway cruiser, while the V6 feels considerably more powerful than the Journey.
