What's New in the 2019 Dodge Journey?

After streamlining the Journey's trim levels to four for 2018, Dodge has further reduced the choices to three for 2019 by eliminating the SXT grade. A couple of SXT's standard features were absorbed by the entry-level SE: three-zone automatic climate control and LED rear taillights (all-wheel drive only). SE also gains fog lamps, fold-away power heated outboard mirrors and performance front/rear fascias. SE is also available with the 3.6-liter V6 upgrade. See the 2019 Dodge Journey models for sale near you

Which Journey is the Best?

The sweet spot for the 2019 Journey is the Crossroad model, offering the best value in the lineup. We highly recommend springing for the $1,700 to add the V6 and 6-speed tranny, as the 4-cylinder engine offers poor acceleration, fuel economy and transmission performance.

How Much Does a 2019 Dodge Journey Cost?

The 2019 Dodge Journey is offered in three trim levels: SE, Crossroad and GT. All feature 3-row seating. Because the SE and Crossroad grades must be upfitted with the V6, 6-speed tranny and other upgrades to accommodate AWD, its price varies by trim. Adding it to SE increases the bottom line by $4,400. On the Crossroad AWD adds $3,500 to the total. GT's AWD inflates the purchase price by $1,900. All trim-level prices include the $1,495 factory destination charge.

The base-level SE ($25,140) includes 17-in steel wheels, roof rails, reclining second- and third-row seats, keyless start, Keyless Enter 'n Go, a rearview camera, three-zone manual climate control, a height-adjustable driver's seat, automatic headlamps, fog lamps, heated power outboard mirrors, an auto-dimming rearview mirror, a tilt-and-telescopic steering wheel, a sliding and reclining second-row seat, a 4.3-in touchscreen interface, a USB port and a 6-speaker stereo. Previously only available on upper grades, the SE can be outfitted with the Blacktop Appearance Package with 19-in black alloy wheels, a black roof and a gloss-black grille. There is also an audio upgrade that includes satellite radio and a CD player.

The Crossroad($29,590) adds 19-in alloy wheels, a power driver's seat, leather upholstery, a leather-wrapped steering wheel, enhanced exterior trim, a cargo net, Bluetooth phone and audio connectivity, satellite radio, a CD/DVD player and the 8.4-in Uconnect touchscreen.

Topping the line is the GT ($34,890), which adds the V6 as standard equipment. It also includes remote ignition, a sport-tuned suspension and steering, upgraded leather upholstery, heated front seats, a heated steering wheel and an upgraded audio system with premium speakers and a larger amplifier.

Options mainly include the features that come standard on higher trim levels, though the Journey also offers a sunroof, parking sensors, a navigation system, a rear-seat DVD player and a Blacktop package with blacked-out trim and wheels.

Is the 2019 Dodge Journey a Safe Car?

The 2019 Dodge Journey comes with standard stability control, 4-wheel anti-lock disc brakes and seven airbags (front, front-side, driver's-knee and full-length side-curtain). A backup camera is standard for 2019. The Journey doesn't offer any modern safety/driver-assist technology like forward-collision warning, a blind spot monitoring system or lane-departure warning.

In crash testing conducted by the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration, the Journey received an overall rating of four stars out of five, including four stars for frontal impacts, five stars for side impacts and four stars in the rollover test. The nonprofit Insurance Institute for Highway Safety awarded the Journey its highest rating of Good in every category except the challenging small-overlap front crash test, where it earned a troubling Poor rating.

2019 Dodge Journey vs the competition

2019 Kia Sorento -- The Sorento offers the same sort of in-betweener size as the Journey (including a third row), but is a substantially more modern and refined effort. It also comes with a 10-year warranty.

2019 Mitsubishi Outlander -- True, the Outlander isn't exactly a bastion of automotive excellence, either. But, it's a more modern choice than the Journey, with superior crash scores and safety equipment. It too has three seating rows and more budget-friendly pricing.

2019 Nissan Rogue -- The Rogue is one of the rare compact SUVs that features a third-row seat, and if that's something you're prioritizing, this Nissan is worth a look.

Used Dodge Durango -- The Durango touts a more spacious 3-row cabin, more distinctive styling, greater overall refinement and better resale value. Prices are higher, though, so you may have to consider a used model.
