Rating 60/100 Background If you are like us, you may be surprised to learn that the 2016 Dodge Journey is still on sale. Other than an admittedly thorough refresh in 2011, under its skin the Journey is pretty much the same as it was when the three-row crossover debuted in 2009. During that time, the …

Rating 82/100 Background If you find "compact" crossover SUVs a little too compact, yet you don’t really want to deal with the large footprint and compromised fuel economy of a larger crossover, Dodge might have the answer. The 2015 Journey is one of the few "tweener"-sized crossovers that could prove the just right size. As …

Rating 70/100 Background The 2014 Dodge Journey is a roomy, versatile crossover SUV that straddles the divide between compact and midsize utility vehicles. It’s one of the few remaining crossovers in its price range that offers both an available V6 engine and a third-row seat. In addition, its interior is pleasant, well-trimmed and comfortable. However, …

Rating 72/100 Background When it debuted four years ago, the Dodge Journey crossover didn’t have much in its favor. We used the comment "Needs Improvement" so frequently on its report card that we were certain its fate as a back-of-the-class entry was sealed. Yet two years later it was more like "Most Improved" as the …

Rating 67/100 Background Once, the Dodge Journey was only a good idea compromised by half-hearted execution. Slow, ponderous and inefficient on the highway, it was further flawed by an interior that didn’t fit the human form and seemed poorly made besides. Usually it takes an entirely new model to turn around such a wayward ship, …

Rating 70/100 Background Know that old expression about the journey being its own reward? Well, in the case of the 2011 Dodge Journey, we can definitively say that this new version is a lot more rewarding than the 2010 model it’s replacing. To be honest, we haven’t much cared for Dodge’s midsize seven-passenger crossover SUV …

Rating 63/100 Background The 2010 Dodge Journey crossover SUV is effectively a replacement for Chrysler’s now defunct short-wheelbase minivans — a family-friendly car that’s a bit more maneuverable than the regular Grand Caravan. The Journey does indeed fill this void in functional terms, offering lots of room for larger families and a number of pleasant …

Rating 52/100 Background A late arrival on the bustling midsize crossover SUV scene, the 2009 Dodge Journey serves as a timely stand-in for Chrysler’s departed short-wheelbase minivans. The Journey is related to the Avenger and Chrysler Sebring midsize sedans, but thanks in part to a 4.9-inch-longer wheelbase, it offers ample room for up to seven …

Toyota says its latest concept vehicle was designed with adventurous urbanites in mind. It’s called the FT-4X and it comes with some pretty interesting features that are unlikely to make it to a production vehicle. Toyota does, however, seem to be pretty proud of the concept so you really never know. Some of the small, …

Toyota has introduced a new grade for its Tundra full-size pickup truck and large Sequoia SUV. The company says both vehicles have long been ideal for families who are all about adventure and need the combination of performance, utility, towing ability and comfort. That’s why Toyota wanted to give families an “extra dose of sportier …

The unveiling of the Range Rover Velar SUV at the 2017 Geneva Motor Show garnered a ton of attention. So much so that it seemed to overshadow another vehicle which Jaguar Land Rover had on display — a unique version of the new Land Rover Discovery. The special vehicle is equipped with a roof-mounted drone …

NIO, the Chinese-backed startup formerly known as NextEV in the United States, is looking to introduce autonomous electric vehicles in the U.S. by 2020. The company announced its plan to do so not at an auto show, but at the South by Southwest (SXSW) festival in Austin, Texas. While NIO did not announce what type …
