The Compass has the fuel economy of a 4 cylinder sedan, with the comfort of an SUV. Yet those 4 cylinders put out approx 172 HP, more than enough to get the vehicle hussling down the road at a good pace without feeling gutless. see full Jeep Compass review

Compared to the 13 mpg avg of our 04 Dakota, it was a no brainer. see full Jeep Compass review

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

Very Surprising. 20.6 average and 25.5hwy @ 75mph see full Dodge Journey review

Dodge Journey Real Gas Mileage: Cons

2016 4dr SUV 283-horsepower 3.6L V6

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

it does not get anywhere close to what Dodge claims, even when my husband drives it. see full Dodge Journey review

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