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.

2020 Dodge Journey- do not recommend!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

It doesn't accelerate well. No room for extra storage when the back row is up.. it is uncomfortable and feels very claustrophobic. Things are breaking all over the car and it is very well taken care of. I have attempted to like it but I just can not.


Do NOT buy this vehicle!!

I had my journey less than a yr and the rear view camera has gone out and once in awhile will work. The stereo sometimes will not come on for a good minute or 2. Parts on the interior keep falling off. I took it in to get it fixed because it was under warranty being under 1 yr and they couldn't replicate the codes and told me bring it back if it continues and they'll try it again 🤦🏼‍♀️ this vehicle is a waist of money!!! Oh and it has no power what so ever. Trying to go up a hill at any incline and your car drops below 30 and your putsing along. I would never recommend this car to anyone!!!!


Love the new Dodge Journey!! It's a dream to drive
