Buyers looking for a midsize SUV that seats seven passengers and comes with an economical price tag will appreciate the 2020 Dodge Journey. There's a nice list of features that come standard, as well as several options that make the Dodge Journey even more rewarding. Owners get ample space for storage, with 10.7 cubic feet of space behind the third-row seats, 37 cubic feet behind the second row, and 67.6 cubic feet of cargo space with the second and third-row seats folded flat. These are only a few of the reasons that buyers looking for a capable and spacious crossover have made the Journey a popular model at the Dodge dealer in Dowagiac.
For 2020, the Dodge Journey comes in two trim levels: SE Value and Crossroad. Under the hood, the Journey gets a 2.4-liter four-cylinder engine that’s good for 173 horsepower and 166 lb-ft of torque, mated to a four-speed automatic transmission. All models are front-wheel drive. According to the Dodge dealership in Dowagiac, EPA-estimated fuel economy for the 2020 Dodge Journey is 19 mpg city/25 mpg highway, a good showing for a vehicle in this class.*
