2020 Dodge Journey review: Our expert's take

What Is the 2020 Dodge Journey?

The Dodge Journey is a mid-size SUV that seats up to seven in three rows. Offered only with front-wheel drive for 2020, the Journey is powered by a standard 172-horsepower, 2.4-liter four-cylinder engine that pairs with a four-speed automatic transmission. Two trim levels are offered: SE Value and Crossroad. Competitors include the Mitsubishi Outlander and Kia Sorento.

What’s New on the 2020 Dodge Journey?

The Journey’s available V-6 engine and all-wheel-drive system have been dropped, leaving just the four-cylinder engine and front-wheel drive. Rear parking sensors are now standard.

What Features in the 2020 Dodge Journey Are Most Important?

In-floor storage bins in the second row are available, and the standard 60/40-split second row has a Tilt ‘n Slide function for easier access to the two-person third row. The available 8.4-inch Uconnect touchscreen multimedia system is easy to use and can have available navigation. Families might be interested in the Journey’s available rear-seat entertainment system with a 9-inch overhead screen.

2020 Dodge Journey Vs. 2020 Mitsubishi Outlander: How Do They Compare?

With a tighter turning radius and narrower body, the Outlander has better maneuverability. Though both vehicles have comparable interior room and fuel economy, the Journey has more cargo space. The Journey’s starting price is higher, but the Outlander offers a superior warranty.

Should I Buy the 2020 Dodge Journey?

Despite its easy-to-use 8.4-inch touchscreen system and versatile cabin, there’s no denying that the Journey is aging — and aging hard. While its base price is certainly attractive, it’s important to not overlook the Journey’s mediocre reliability and lack of increasingly common active safety features like blind spot warning and automatic emergency braking.

My 2nd journey

This is my 2nd Journey and I was so happy with the 2014 that when I upgraded, I decided to get another one. I've only had this for a month but have been very happy with it so far.

A few complaints

Purchased mines in 2021 brand new My daughter fell in love with it because she saw the 3rd row. She rode the 3rd row twice in 2 years. She said it’s too small and not comfortable. She loves the reclining back seats. I have found a few black pieces on the inside of the truck on the floor but don’t know where they detached from. The rear view camera is small and has worked my nerves. 98% of the time it’s upside down. Other than that I’ve enjoyed it
