The 2020 Dodge Journey is a seven-seat midsize SUV that provides all the utility you'd expect from a vehicle in this class, along with an economical price tag. You'll find the Journey at a dealership like the Dowagiac Dodge dealer at a price that’s a lot less than competing vehicles. Journey buyers also appreciate its comfortable seats and abundant cargo space. Anyone looking for a straightforward SUV without a lot of frills should take a close look at the 2020 Dodge Journey.
The 2020 Dodge Journey is offered in two trim levels: SE Value and Crossroad. According to Dowagiac Dodge, the 2020 Journey is powered by a 2.4-liter four-cylinder engine that puts out 173 horsepower and 166 lb-ft of torque, teamed to a four-speed automatic gearbox. Both trims get front-wheel drive. The Journey gets EPA-estimated fuel economy rated at 19 mpg in the city and 25 mpg on the highway.*
The 2020 Journey’s flexible cargo area features second- and third-row seats that can be folded down to create a flat floor. Fold down the front passenger seat, and you’ll get even more room for cargo. There’s 10.7 cubic feet of space behind the third-row seats and 37 cubic feet behind the second row. Fold both rows down, and you’ll get 67.6 cubic feet of cargo space. The base of the front passenger seat comes with a handy storage compartment, and cubbies are conveniently located around the cabin to store smaller items.
The automotive reviewers at Kelley Blue Book wrote: “In ride and handling, it’s clear that this Dodge is tuned for comfort, but the chassis remains well composed when the road twists and turns. Of note: The Journey is one of the few new 2020 vehicles that still has conventional hydraulic power-assist steering (versus electric assist), so its steering, though slightly heavy, has good feel.”
The Journey's soft suspension helps to provide a smooth ride over bumpy roads. The driver and passengers will appreciate the 2020 Dodge Journey’s comfortable and supportive seats, which are covered in attractive fabric that's durable and easy to clean. The Uconnect infotainment system comes with an 8.4-inch touchscreen that's optional in the Crossroad trim. This user-friendly system simplifies many tasks for the driver, including navigation commands and selecting music via voice activation. Uconnect makes it easy to connect and control personal device. The audio and climate systems have physical buttons, and the attractive interior features high-quality plastic.
Outside, the Journey features eye-catching styling. The Crossroad trim gets black alloy wheels, roof rails, a blacked-out grille and tinted side glass, providing a bolder look.
Standard safety features include electronic stability control with all-speed traction control, multistage front passenger airbags, front seat-mounted side airbags, a driver-side knee airbag, side-curtain airbags, electronic roll mitigation and Brake Assist, active head restraints, trailer-sway control and a LATCH child seat anchor system.
