Claremore Driveway: Dodge Journey

SEATS SEVEN—IF THEY’RE REALLY GOOD FRIENDS

journeyIf you plan on hauling seven adults, seriously, get a minivan. But if a couple of your passengers are children, it will work to scale down to a mid-sized crossover like a Dodge Journey. Crossovers are essentially cars, whose roofs have been raised and interiors extended. The obvious advantages here are car-like ride and fuel economy,

The Dodge Journey we’re driving today fits those requirements. Fueleconomy.gov rates these at 25 or 26 mpg highway depending on the engine you pick. That’s half  again more than the Tahoe and Expedition, which are the full-sized seven passenger competition (excluding minivans).

These come in both front-wheel and all-wheel drive (the front wheel does fine on ice and snow but won’t work for off-road).  The back-up camera helps and I personally like the nice wheels.

You sure you don’t want a minivan?

My name is Robby Melton. I’m old enough to qualify for a “senior coke” at McDonalds and don’t have to work anymore, but find myself here on the lot most days because that’s where the cars are. That advertising slogan,  “We sell cars for fun,” is not far off-base for my brother and me.
