2010 4dr SUV 235-horsepower 3.5L V6
6-speed shiftable automatic FWD
The gas mileage is great for a 7 passenger SUV. On the highway at 60 mph you can see 25-28 mpg. City wise we see 18-19. see full Dodge Journey review
2009 4dr SUV 173-horsepower 2.4L I4
4-speed automatic FWD
Averaged about 24-26 MPG in the 10 days that we rented it. see full Dodge Journey review

16 /24 in the AWD V6, 19 overall per the EPA. The city number is quite poor, though the highway number is competitive. We don't put all that many miles on our cars so it was something that we could more easily overlook, but if you've got a fairly long commute that isn't mostly on the highway, this might be a deal breaker. see full Dodge Journey review
2012 4dr SUV 283-horsepower 3.6L V6
6-speed shiftable automatic FWD
The biggest disappointment for the car is the lower fuel economy. On the highway, it gets right around 30, but in town driving suddenly drops to under 20. That's a big difference, and since it is primarily used around town (less than 15% highway) we're paying a bit more in fuel costs. see full Dodge Journey review

no better than the Town and Country van, with far less room. see full Dodge Journey review

Fuel economy literally sucks!! I guess it's the price you pay for driving a big vehicle with all-wheel drive. I also own a new GMC 4x4 quad cab truck with a 6 liter engine. My truck gets better fuel economy than my 3.6 liter Traverse. Maybe I just got stuck with a lemon. I'm told that fuel economy is supposed to get better once the engine gets more km's on it. I doubt it will improve very much at all to notice any savings at the pump. see full Chevrolet Traverse review
