Regardless of what you use your vehicle for, if you spend a lot of time in it, you will want a quality infotainment system. How do these two SUVs compare when it comes to keeping you entertained?

You also get enough space to handle seven passengers over three rows. Since the rear seats have a split-folding design, you can easily accommodate both cargo and people.

For an SUV, it can also help with utility tasks like towing. Two of the more popular used options in Alberta, Canada are the 2018 Dodge Journey and the 2018 Nissan Rogue. How do these two compare when you look under the hood?

Dodge Journey Crossroads AWD

Engine
: 3.6L V6
Horsepower: 283 hp
Torque: 260 lb.-ft
Transmission: 6-speed automatic
Drivetrain: AWD
Suspension: Strut (front)/Multi-Link (Rear)

Nissan Rogue

Engine
: 2.5L I-4
Horsepower: 170 hp
Torque: 175 lb.-ft
Transmission: Continuous Variable Transmission (CVT)
Drivetrain: AWD
Suspension: Strut (front)/Multi-Link (Rear)

The 2018 Journey wins the comparison with the Rogue when it comes to power, but its positive attributes don't end with its 283-hp V6 engine. The Dodge's six-speed automatic transmission provides a better driving experience, and it is more reliable than the Nissan's CVT.

The 2018 Dodge Journey also comes with a full range of safety and security features. Its tire-pressure monitoring system helps you avoid flats and blowouts, while the Senty Key anti-theft immobilizer keeps someone else from trying to start your SUV. 

If you are interested in a capable used SUV, contact our Calgary dealership to check the availability of the V6-powered 2018 Dodge Journey.

Though they can both conquer inclement weather, they perform differently when it comes to utility tasks like towing and transporting passengers. 

Here is how the seven-person Dodge Journey and five-seat Nissan Rogue compare when it comes to hauling. 

Dodge Journey Crossroad

Engine
: 3.6L V6
Horsepower: 283 hp
Torque: 260 lb.-ft
Transmission: 6-speed automatic
Drivetrain: AWD
Maximum Towing Capacity: 1,1334 kg

Nissan Rogue

Engine
: 2.5L I-4
Horsepower: 170 hp
Torque: 175 lb.-ft
Transmission: Continuous Variable Transmission (CVT)
Drivetrain: AWD
Maximum Towing Capacity: 500 kg

The Dodge Journey Crossroad stands out in this comparison. It is a more capable option for hauling for recreation or household purposes. The seven-seat SUV is also superior to the Nissan Rogue in terms of safety. It comes with Electronic Stability and Traction Control. If you take advantage of its towing prowess, then you will appreciate the Trailer Sway Control, which is standard on this trim.

 Even if you do not attach a trailer, you still get plenty of cargo-carrying ability. The back rows in the 2021 Dodge Journey Crossroad fold down to create 1,914 L of open space in the interior.

<a href="https://renfrewchrysler.com/inventory#/?&orderBy=1&t=0&filter=[Used%2CDodge%2CJourney%2C%2C%2C%2C%2C%2C%2C%2C%2C%2C%2C%2C%2C%2C%2C%2C%2C%2C%2C]"><img src="/images/upload/June_2021/Dodge_journey_interior.png"alt="The interior of a 2018 Dodge Journey with leather black seats and a park outside the windows"/></a>Both the 2018 Dodge Journey and the 2018 Nissan Rogue provide ample interior space. However, if you are transporting family members, co-workers, or friends regularly, the size of the rear rows will be vitally important.

Here is how these two SUVs compare when it comes to offering comfort to those in the back seats. 

2018 Dodge Journey

(First/Second/Third Rows)
Passenger Capacity: 7
Headroom: 1036 mm/1013 mm/958 mm
Hip Room: 1366 mm/1382 mm/1016 mm

2018 Nissan Rogue

(First/Second/Third Rows)
Passenger Capacity: 5
Headroom: 1057 mm/978 mm/Not available
Hip Room: 1372 mm/1323 mm/Not available

The 2018 Dodge Journey doesn’t just offer a high-capacity interior compared to the 2018 Nissan Rogue, but a more versatile one, as well. You can easily convert it from a seven-person SUV to a five-seater by turning down the 60/40 split-folding second-row. 

Also, you can retract the back bench and enjoy up to 1,914 litres of cargo space on the inside of the SUV. This capacity is an excellent supplement to the maximum 1,133 kg of weight that the 2018 Dodge Journey is capable of towing.
