2016 Dodge Journey vs. 2016 Chevy Equinox near Tulsa, OK

Who Will Emerge as the Better SUV?

For a well-rounded SUV that exudes performance and comfort, look no further than the 2016 Dodge Journey. To prove its dominance at the top of its class, David Stanley Dodge has put together a comparison between the 2016 Dodge Journey vs. 2016 Chevy Equinox near Tulsa, OK.

To start off, we compared the engines of the two SUVs to see what kind of power is at your disposal with the Journey and Equinox. The 2016 Journey is fitted with a 3.6L Pentastar® V6 engine that provides 283 horsepower and 260 lbs.-ft. of torque. That’s a serious upgrade over the 2.4L I4 engine of the Equinox, where you’re limited to 182 horsepower and 172 lbs.-ft. of torque.

Once you step inside the interior of the 2016 Dodge Journey, you’ll realize you have a surplus of space compared to the competition. With seating for seven, you can bring six friends on a trip to the Utica Square Shopping Center; in the Equinox – which only seats five – you’ve got some tough choices to make on who to leave behind. The Journey provides 124 cubic ft.1 of passenger volume, and also offers 67.7 cubic ft.1 of maximum cargo volume so you don’t have to leave anything or anyone behind. In the Equinox, you’ll feel the squeeze with only 100 and 63.7 cubic ft. of passenger and cargo volume1, respectively. Dodge’s engineers even thought through the smallest details to make your ride easier. A cargo net in the back adds flexibility when organizing your trunk, and a locking glove box is available for those valuables you want to keep safe. Unfortunately, the Equinox doesn’t have either of those features.

For even more comfort, the 2016 Journey has heated seats, automatic air conditioning, and dual-zone front air conditioning so that both the driver and the front passenger can customize their climate. The Equinox is limited to manual air conditioning, non-heated front seats, and has just a single zone air conditioning. The driver’s seat in the Dodge Journey has power-adjustable cushion tilt, fore/aft adjustment, and 4-way lumbar support so you can find the optimal driving position with the push of a button, while you have to adjuster those settings manually on the 2016 Equinox.

As we continue to evaluate the 2016 Dodge Journey vs. 2016 Chevy Equinox near Tulsa, OK, with the interior amenities of the two SUVs. The Journey has SiriusXM® Satellite Radio2, in addition to AM/FM radio, while the Equinox is stuck with just AM/FM radio. For added safety and convenience, the Dodge Journey has voice-activated audio control, a feature not available on the 2016 Chevy Equinox. For an even better music experience, choose the Dodge Journey and its seven speakers distributed around the interior, compared to the Equinox’s six.

We’ve reached the end of the comparison of the 2016 Dodge Journey vs. 2016 Chevy Equinox near Tulsa, OK, and it looks like the Journey beats out the 2016 Equinox. To see for yourself, come test drive the 2016 Dodge Journey at David Stanley Dodge, located at 7609 SE 29th St. in Midwest City, OK.
