1. 2014 Dodge Journey SXT
Selling price: $20,518
Uh-oh, guess which "Yodge" didn't make it into the Ron Burgundy Dodge commercials promoting Anchorman 2?
Yeah, buying a Dodge is a tough proposition these days. With Fiat taking full ownership and focusing on its own brand and scaling back Jeep and Chrysler, it's tough to tell where Dodge stands. Where this crossover is concerned, it's not on very steady ground.
The Journey is getting a reboot for the 2015 model based on Fiat designs. The new version will look and feel just about nothing like this one, and it's not clear that such a bad thing. For now, you get your heated mirrors, fog lamps, UConnect touchscreen entertainment and information system, Bluetooth connectivity, a year of Sirius XM satellite radio, leather-trimmed interior, heated steering wheel and a bunch of other throw-ins.
At some point, Fiat will solidify the lineup and start charging full price for everything. Until then, take the breaks where you can get them.
