Finding competitive auto insurance for a Dodge Journey in New Jersey is dependent upon many rating criteria such as how old the vehicle is, whether or not you have filed claims in the past, and your driving record. Drivers pay on average $1,143 per year to insure their Journey, but that is a projection calculated based on a 30-year-old married male driver with full coverage and $1,000 deductibles.
More likely than not, you aren't exactly 30 years old or even a male, single instead of married, and you may just want the cheapest liability coverage you can find. Insurance is an individual thing, so the way we recommend to find the most affordable coverage for your Dodge is to do the rate comparisons yourself. Quotes only take a few minutes and you will receive prices from the best companies around.
Vehicle trim level tends to impact the cost of coverage, so the price you will be charged to insure a Journey SE 2WD model will be $168 less than the cost to insure the more well-appointed Journey SXT Crew AWD version, as shown below.

Each auto insurance company has a proprietary method to determine premium rates, so let's look at the rankings for the auto insurance companies with the overall best prices in Newark, NJ. It's a good idea to be aware that Newark auto insurance rates are based on many factors that will increase or decrease the policy premium.

Can you find cheaper Journey insurance?
Newark auto insurance rates are impacted by many factors which can significantly increase or decrease the price you pay for coverage. Getting older, marrying your spouse, or having an accident can trigger price changes that may make certain companies affordable when they were higher priced.
Not only that, but auto insurance companies change the rates they charge in New Jersey as often as every quarter in order to offset underwriting gains or losses. Significantly higher claims may result in increased policy costs, while a better loss history may result in cheaper Journey insurance rates.
