Introduction
The 2014 Dodge Journey, labeled a small crossover by the EPA, provides seating for up to 7 passengers, is available in one of five trim levels, and derives power from a 4- or 6-cylinder engine. Front-wheel-drive (FWD) and all-wheel-drive (AWD) models are offered. Competitors include the Chevrolet Equinox, Ford Escape, Ford Edge, GMC Terrain, Hyundai Santa Fe Sport, Jeep Cherokee, Kia Sorento, Mitsubishi Outlander, Nissan Murano, Subaru Forester, and the Toyota Venza.

Models and Features
For 2014, the Journey's lineup starts with the base AVP model, equipped with heated power-adjustable outside mirrors, 17-inch steel wheels, 4.3-inch touch-screen infotainment system with a USB port, cruise control, and a reclining 60/40 split-folding second-row seat. Dodge follows up on that model with the Journey SE, offering upgrades like LED taillights, roof rails, and rear privacy glass.

Straddling the middle of the lineup is the 2014 Journey SXT. To distinguish it from the lesser-equipped versions, designers treated the SXT to dual exhaust tips, fog lights, 17-inch alloy wheels, additional body-color exterior trim, floor mats, complimentary 1-year satellite radio subscription, and a performance-tuned suspension (AWD only).

Next is the new-for-2014 Journey Limited. This is where buyers will find standard automatic headlights, Bluetooth connectivity, 19-inch alloy wheels, 3-prong 115-volt power outlet, dual-zone automatic climate control, and an 8.4-inch screen to go with the infotainment system. These add-ons are accompanied by leather upholstery, heated front seats with power adjustments for the driver and a fold-flat feature for the passenger, and a handy remote start system.

For those who want a bit more attitude from their daily people mover, the 2014 Dodge Journey R/T aims to please with its performance-tuned chassis, uniquely styled alloy wheels, 368-watt premium sound system, and black leather upholstery paired with red accent stitching.

Options and Packages
All versions of the 2014 Journey are available with a Flexible Seating package that features a 40/60 split-folding and sliding second-row seat, tri-zone climate control, and third-row bench seat. There are also fairly typical offerings including a Leather Interior package (with heat for the steering wheel and front seats), Trailer Tow package, and a Sun and Sound package consisting of a premium audio system and a power tilt/slide moonroof. A little less common are the Journey's optional rear-seat entertainment system, and a Blacktop package that bundles black wheels and exterior trim with a touring-tuned suspension.

Under the Hood
The 2014 Journey AVP, SE, and SXT's standard engine is a 2.4-liter 4-cylinder that produces 173 horsepower and 166 lb.-ft. of torque, all of which is directed to the front wheels courtesy of a 4-speed automatic transmission. AWD is not available with this powertrain.

A 3.6-liter V-6 engine is optional on the SXT and standard on Journey Limited and R/T variants. Thanks to its extra cylinders, this engine generates 283 horsepower and 260 lb.-ft. of torque, which, in this case, is managed by a 6-speed automatic transmission. Buyers have the choice of FWD or AWD capability.

Dodge says 4-cylinder Journeys can tow up to 1,000 lbs., whereas V-6 models can accommodate 2,500-lb. loads.

Fuel Economy
According to EPA estimates, FWD Journey models fitted with the base 4-cylinder engine are the most efficient, averaging 19 mpg in the city and 26 mpg on the highway. Those who opt for the V-6 can plan on losing a couple mpgs in town and just one mpg when cruising along the freeway.

The AWD Journey, available only with the 3.6-liter 6-cylinder, delivers the least desirable fuel-economy figures: 16 mpg city/24 mpg highway.

Safety and Ratings
In crash tests conducted by the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration (NHTSA), the 2014 Dodge Journey received an overall rating of 4 (out of 5) stars. In tests conducted by the Insurance Institute for Highway Safety (IIHS), the 2014 Journey received a rating of \"Good\"--the Institute's highest--for front-impact crash protection.

The Journey's list of standard safety equipment includes 7 air bags and 4-wheel anti-lock disc brakes with brake assist and electronic brake-force distribution. A rearview camera and rear park-assist sensors are also available.
