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.

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

We love our new car!! Went to look today and left w a 2020 Dodge Journey! Love it! Great service at Stew Hansen!! Thanks to Monte for all of his help and assistance!!


Great car for hauling grandkids around in.

3 row seats is a plus. Extra room for gear and groceries next to the used 3rd row seat is cool. Air conditioning is super. No problems with mechanical or electrical yet. Ride comfort is real good. Getting over 20mpg in city. Hope to keep this car for many years.
