 Pros The improved interior offers sophistication that is leaps and bounds above earlier editions. On the interior alone, those that used to overlook this SUV are much more likely to take it for a test drive.

 Pros A quicker-ratio steering rack makes it easy to control this large vehicle, as it responds to commands with speed and accuracy. Even cornering doesn't give any sense of impending loss of control - a feat considering its weight.

 Pros The Dodge Journey SUV is the most affordable mid-size crossover at a minimum invoice price of $18,855. In addition, it is America's most affordable seven passenger vehicle.

 Pros The Dodge Journey SUV offers more than 50 possible safety features, inspiring the Insurance Institute for Highway Safety to name it a Top Safety Pick.

 Pros Innovative storage bins make it easy to keep valuables out of sight.

 Cons The inexpensive base model of the Dodge Journey SUV comes standard with a 2.4 liter I-4 engine that should generally be passed over for the 3.6 liter V-6. This adds cost to the overall package, but it is essential if you intend to keep the vehicle for any length of time.

 Cons Total cargo capacity with all rear seats folded is 67.6 cubic feet, which comes in slightly behind the competition.
