Dodge's midsized SUV seats five, with an optional third row that nominally increases seating to seven. The 3.6-liter V6 got only 16 mpg in our tests. The noisy 2.4-liter engine is available only on front-wheel-drive versions. Despite the new engine and updated interior appointments, the Journey is still mediocre overall. It does ride well and the cabin stays quiet, but its lack of agility makes it feel larger than it is. In addition, the transmission is reluctant to downshift and the third-row seat is tiny. Reliability has been well below average.
