When you look at the key model information for both the 2018 Toyota Highlander and 2018 Dodge Journey, it's no secret why both are such popular midsize SUVs! Whether you're looking for efficiency, performance or space, both midsize SUVs deliver! But, when you see the two side-by-side, the Toyota Highlander shows itself to be the better model over the Dodge Journey.

Normally, for an SUV to get the impressive fuel economy that the Toyota Highlander gets, it means sacrificing performance or interior space.
