2020 Dodge Journey Overview

Is the 2020 dodge journey a good used suv.

The 2020 Journey is not a very good used SUV. Its cabin is full of cheap plastics, the third row is incredibly cramped, and cargo space is subpar for a midsize SUV . On top of that, this Dodge lacks the tech – including Android Auto, Apple CarPlay, and a host of safety features – you can find in most rivals.

There are plenty of better vehicles to consider. The 2020 Kia Sorento has a nicer cabin, more tech and safety features (including Android Auto and Apple CarPlay), and better fuel economy. Despite being a compact SUV , the 2020 Volkswagen Tiguan has more cargo room than the Journey, and it can be had with all-wheel drive.

How Much Does the 2020 Dodge Journey Cost to Own?

The 2020 Journey’s five-year costs for gas, insurance, taxes, fees, repairs, and maintenance are projected to be about $30,070, or $6,014 per year. These ownership costs are low for the class.

2019 vs. 2020 Dodge Journey: What's the Difference?

Dodge’s main changes to the 2020 Journey were subtractions. The available V6 engine, six-speed automatic transmission, and all-wheel drive were discontinued, and the trims were condensed from four to two, leaving just the SE Value and the Crossroad. Additionally, rear parking sensors were added to the standard features list.

Compare the 2019 and 2020 Journey »

Here are the key changes for the Dodge Journey over the last few years:

  • 2017: GT became the highest trim
  • 2018: third-row seats made standard
  • 2019: SXT dropped; V6 engine became available in base trim
  • 2020: simplified trim lineup; V6 engine, six-speed automatic transmission, and AWD no longer available; rear parking sensors made standard; final model year of production

Which Used Dodge Journey Trim Is Right for Me?

Dodge made the 2020 Journey in two trim levels: SE Value and Crossroad. Both have a 172-horsepower four-cylinder engine, a four-speed automatic transmission, and front-wheel drive.

The SE Value is sparsely equipped, so shoppers may want to skip it in favor of the Crossroad.

  • Dodge Journey SE Value: Standard features include a 4.3-inch touch screen, a USB port, a six-speaker stereo, dual-zone manual climate control, an auto-dimming rearview mirror, keyless entry, rear parking sensors, and a rearview camera.
  • Dodge Journey Crossroad: The Crossroad gains an 8.4-inch touch screen, satellite radio, Bluetooth, tri-zone automatic climate control, leather upholstery, a power-adjustable driver's seat, a leather-wrapped steering wheel, second-row in-floor storage bins, a sunroof, fog lights, and alloy wheels. Some Crossroads may come with navigation, a rear-seat entertainment system, heated front seats, a heated steering wheel, and/or remote start.

What Does Dodge's Certified Pre-Owned Warranty Cover?

Dodge offers a certified pre-owned program for vehicles six years old or less and with fewer than 65,000 miles. Eligibility is determined by the vehicle’s initial sale date. For its certified pre-owned vehicles, Dodge offers a five-year/100,000-mile maximum care limited warranty. Additional benefits are available, including a 90-day satellite radio trial subscription, a Carfax vehicle history report, 24-hour towing and roadside assistance and a car rental allowance. There are mileage and model restrictions too. 

Dodge has one of the weaker CPO warranties among affordable carmakers, according to our analysis. Rivals such as Kia, Hyundai, Chevy, Ford and Honda are all better.

Extended Warranties for Dodge Cars and SUVs

Not every used Dodge will qualify for a certified pre-owned warranty. However, there are options available if you want additional coverage after the manufacturer’s warranty has expired.

2020 Dodge Journey Versus the Competition

2020 dodge journey vs. 2020 ford explorer.

The 2020 Ford Explorer is a much better midsize SUV than the Dodge. It has stronger engines, sharper handling, better fuel economy estimates, more passenger room, a larger cargo hold, and many more standard safety features. Go with the Ford.

Compare the Journey and Explorer »

2020 Dodge Journey vs. 2020 Honda CR-V

The two-row 2020 Honda CR-V is a compact SUV , but its first two rows offer more passenger space than the Journey's front rows, and it has an additional 8.2 cubic feet of cargo space. The Honda offers more tech and safety features than the Dodge, and it provides a more stable ride. The CR-V is the better vehicle.

2020 Journey Performance

How does the 2020 dodge journey drive.

The only available engine for the Journey is an underpowered four-cylinder that struggles to bring the vehicle up to speed. Additionally, the automatic transmission hesitates to downshift.

The Journey provides a mostly gentle ride, but the SUV feels unwieldy around turns and suffers from a lot of body lean. Furthermore, the steering is imprecise and requires frequent corrections. All-wheel drive is not available.

  • Engine: 2.4-liter four-cylinder with 172 horsepower and 165 pound-feet of torque
  • Drivetrain: front-wheel drive
  • Transmission: four-speed automatic

2020 Dodge Journey Gas Mileage

This Dodge earns an EPA-estimated 19 mpg in the city and 25 mpg on the highway. Those are typical fuel economy estimates for the midsize SUV class , which includes V6-powered rivals. For an SUV with a four-cylinder engine, however, this vehicle disappoints.

2020 Dodge Journey Towing Capacity

The Journey can tow up to 1,000 pounds when properly equipped. That’s poor for the class. There are even some compact SUVs that can tow more than that.

2020 Journey Interior

2020 journey interior quality.

Most class rivals have nicer interiors than the Journey's. Cheap and flimsy plastics make up the bulk of this vehicle’s cabin.

How Many People Does the 2020 Journey Seat?

The 2020 Journey seats seven people in three rows. The first two rows have enough head- and legroom to accommodate most adults, but the third row is tight, even for kids. Some reviewers also find that the rearmost seats are stiff.

Standard seating features:

  • Cloth upholstery

Available seating features:

  • Leather upholstery
  • Six-way power-adjustable driver’s seat
  • Heated front seats
  • Heated steering wheel

How Many Child Car Seats Fit in the 2020 Dodge Journey?

This Dodge has two complete sets of LATCH connectors for the second-row outboard seats. The second-row middle seat has a lower anchor and a tether, plus the ability to borrow a lower anchor from the passenger-side seat. There are no tethers for the third row.

The Insurance Institute for Highway Safety gave this LATCH system the second-lowest rating of Marginal for its ease of use. The tethers are hard to find and easily confused for other hardware, the middle anchor is hard to maneuver around, and the driver-side lower anchors are set deeply in the seats.

2020 Dodge Journey Features

Like other Dodge and Jeep vehicles, the Journey comes with the Uconnect infotainment system. It’s easy to use and has a responsive touch screen along with handy physical controls. However, there are fewer features than you’ll get with rivals, and Apple CarPlay and Android Auto are not available.

  • Standard infotainment features: a 4.3-inch touch screen, a six-speaker stereo, and a USB port
  • Available infotainment features : an 8.4-inch touch screen, a six-speaker premium stereo, satellite radio, navigation, Bluetooth, and a rear-seat entertainment system with a 9-inch display
  • Additional standard features: dual-zone manual climate control, push-button start, and proximity keyless entry
  • Other available features: remote start, tri-zone automatic climate control, and a sunroof

This Dodge has 10.7 cubic feet of space behind the third row, 37 cubic feet behind the second, and a total of 67.6 cubic feet behind the first. Those are among the lowest totals in the midsize SUV class . Even some two-row rivals have more space.

What's New for 2020?

Dodge cuts down the number of available trims on the Journey from three to just two for 2020: the SE Value and the Crossroad. The other notable cuts are the absence of all-wheel drive and the optional V-6 engine that were paired to a six-speed automatic transmission. The only powertrain available is now the antiquated 172-hp 2.4-liter four-cylinder that is paired to a four-speed automatic and front-wheel drive. Buyers can look forward to the addition of standard rear park assist to all models as well as a standard sunroof for the Crossroad trim level. Dodge also streamlines the option-picking process with the introduction of the Popular Equipment Group which bundles many features together, depending on trim level. In the SE Value trim, the package gives you a six-way power-adjustable driver's seat, Uconnect with Voice Command and Bluetooth, SiriusXM satellite radio, three-zone climate control, security alarm, and a leather-wrapped shift knob and steering wheel. The Crossroad's Popular Equipment Group adds a universal garage door opener, remote start, heated front seats and steering wheel, navigation, and a six-speaker sound system with a subwoofer. Dodge has announced that the Journey will finally come to an end after the 2020 model year.

Pricing and Which One to Buy

The price of the 2020 Dodge Journey starts at $25,170 and goes up to $30,090 depending on the trim and options.

With the absence of the V-6 and all-wheel drive for 2020, the rental-fleet-inspired SE Value version is our pick from the Journey lineup. With minimal options to choose from and minimal value added from the Popular Equipment Group at this level, we'd skip everything and stick with the bare-bones Journey.

Engine, Transmission, and Performance

The Journey SE and Crossroad trims come with an underpowered four-cylinder engine that's best avoided—except you can't, since the V-6 is no longer offered. The 172-hp engine is woefully underpowered and the four-speed automatic transmission that's reluctant to downshift further dulls its real-world performance.

There are not many three-row crossovers that are entertaining to drive, so their ride and handling are graded on a curve. Even so, the Journey's ponderous handling and unresponsive transmission leave it far from getting a good rating from us. It wallows in corners with lots of body roll and imprecise steering. The benefit of this softness, however, is a comfortable ride on the freeway.

2020 Dodge Journey rear

Fuel Economy and Real-World MPG

The four-cylinder engine has the worst EPA ratings among competitors with similar powertrains, with 19 mpg in city driving and 25 mpg on the highway. By comparison, the 2019 Honda CR-V is rated at 26 city and 32 mpg on the highway, while the 2019 Toyota C-HR is rated at 27/31.

Interior, Comfort, and Cargo

The Journey's interior is far from upscale, but its simple controls are user-friendly. Getting anyone to fit in the third row—even children—requires those in the second row to compromise their legroom. Cheap-feeling bits such as a plasticky shifter and hollow-sounding interior door-trim panels are especially egregious on the priciest version. Several luxury features including a power-adjustable passenger seat, cooled seats, and heated rear seats are notable in their absence from the options list.

Practicality is one of the few areas where the Journey shines: its interior is easily configurable and it has tons of cubby storage for odds and ends, even if its total cargo capacity isn't as large as some competitors. You can fold down the 50/50-split third row and the 60/40-split second row to expand the available cargo space, although the Journey offers the least amount of total cargo space of the vehicles in this class. In addition to the expected compartments in and around the console, there's also a generously sized bin under the front-passenger seat cushion, as well as two large underfloor compartments in the second row.

2020 Dodge Journey interior

Infotainment and Connectivity

Although every model features an easy-to-use touchscreen, the system has fewer features than many other Dodge products. Likewise, the larger screen is responsive, but we wish Apple CarPlay and Android Auto capability were offered here. There's also only a single USB port up front—not great for the device-happy spawn likely to inhabit the back seats.

Safety and Driver-Assistance Features

Overall safety rating (nhtsa).

The Journey's lackluster safety report card reveals that it's not the best choice when it comes to sheltering your precious onboard cargo. Its crash-test results are not great, and—what's worse—it offers none of the advanced driver-assistance technology that is expected in other family haulers. The only available safety feature is rear parking sensors.

Warranty and Maintenance Coverage

Dodge's warranty coverage is average, and Journey buyers won't enjoy complimentary scheduled maintenance.

  • Limited warranty covers 3 years or 36,000 miles
  • Powertrain warranty covers 5 years or 60,000 miles
  • No complimentary scheduled maintenance

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.

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

THE BEST USED LUXURY CARS ON THE MARKET

Are Dodge Journeys Generally Reliable?

The more dependable the vehicle, the less you will spend on repairs and the more time you will have to go places you want. Let’s examine the general reliability of the Dodge Journey when considering all available years.

The Dodge Journey struggles a little in reliability. According to withclutch.com , the Journey scores a 40, placing it low in reliability. It’s one of the lowest Dodge options, tied with the Dodge Caliber for last place amidst their other vehicles.  

It’s ideal to get a second opinion on any review. According to repairpal.com , the Journey scores ⅘, placing it above average for mid-size SUVs and putting it sixth out of twenty-six other mid-size options. It’s a decent performer here.

The annual repair cost for the Dodge Journey is $562, slightly below the average for similar vehicles. If there is a need for a sudden and unexpected repair, there is a 12% chance it will be severe, 1% lower than the average for similar cars on the market.

Those behind the wheel of the Dodge Journey should anticipate bringing it to the repair shop for unexpected fixes .3 times a year. Again, this number is lower than the average of .4 for mid-size vehicles. Although the Journey has its faults, it’s a reliable choice when you have the ideal year.

Which Dodge Journey Years Are The Least Reliable?

Considering the most reliable years naturally brings us to the least reliable selections for the Dodge Journey. These cars boasted the most flaws, costing owners precious time and money to take care of the errors and get their vehicles back on the road.

Here are the least reliable selections for the Dodge Journey in today’s market:

  • 2009 Dodge Journey
  • 2010 Dodge Journey
  • 2011 Dodge Journey
  • 2012 Dodge Journey

If you’re looking for the most reliable year Dodge Journey offers interested drivers, stay away from these choices at all costs to avoid serious expenses.

There were several significant issues in these years. A few of the most prominent included brake troubles, interior accessory faults, malfunctioning remote keyless entry issues, and interior water leaks, to name a few.

It was most common to see customer complaints in these years. However, some general issues often show up in the Dodge Journey. Before buying a used version of this vehicle, it’s helpful to know what you will face.

IS GAP INSURANCE WORTH IT?

Gap insurance can prevent you from making payments on an already-totalled car, but is gap insurance worth it? We break down what gap insurance is, if it’s worth it, and more - simply and with plenty of examples. 

What Are The Most Common Issues With A Dodge Journey?

One of the smartest choices you can make before investing in a Dodge Journey is understanding the troubles associated with the vehicle. These appear across the board.

According to repairpal.com , here are the most frequent troubles with the Dodge Journey:

  • Remote keyless entry system not working
  • Overheating engine
  • Vibration when using the brakes
  • Whining noise from the power steering pump

If these make themselves known on your drive, you’ll need to take a trip to the repair shop.

For the most part, drivers should only experience these every once in a while. However, they are more likely to come up in the worst years.

We’ve talked about many details surrounding the overall reliability of the Journey. Now, it’s time for the ultimate question - is this Dodge car worth it?

Is The Dodge Journey Worth It?

If you’re looking for a unique mid-size crossover SUV, the Dodge Journey is an excellent option. The best years have minimal complaints, offering a quality experience to the person behind the wheel. The Journey isn’t perfect, but it’s worth it for many.

Edmunds' Expert Review

Dan Frio

  • Extra versatility provided by a standard three-row seat
  • Low price for the segment
  • Lacks many modern safety and convenience features, even in top trims
  • Below-average fuel economy
  • Disappointing and outdated base engine and transmission
  • Handling and drivability lag behind competitors

What's new

  • The SXT trim level has been dropped leaving the SE, Crossroad and GT
  • The SE gets additional standard content; new front and rear bodywork are now available with the V6 engine
  • Part of the first Journey generation introduced in 2009

Time has not been kind to the 2019 Dodge Journey. Despite previous refreshes or redesigns to keep pace with changing tides and tastes, it's pretty much the same as when the Journey debuted a decade ago. Dodge designers might have nailed the Journey's purpose from the start, but they've since let others catch up and surpass it in many areas.

Cost to Drive Cost to drive estimates for the 2019 Dodge Journey SE Value Package 4dr SUV (2.4L 4cyl 4A) and comparison vehicles are based on 15,000 miles per year (with a mix of 55% city and 45% highway driving) and energy estimates of $3.49 per gallon for regular unleaded in North Dakota.

Dodge has made some minor tweaks to this year's Journey. There's one fewer trim level, allowing some of the discontinued trim's features to migrate to the base trim. There is, however, the new and exceptionally cool Destroyer Gray paint scheme. The Journey should only come in this color. It might give the car some much-needed attitude.

But it will take more than attitude to bring the Journey back into serious consideration among its newer and more refined Kia and Volkswagen competitors. Even when fully optioned, it lacks most of the safety features today's buyers might expect. Its base four-cylinder engine is truly underwhelming and is paired to an equally uninspired four-speed automatic transmission, a combination that yields subpar fuel economy. There's a stronger, optional V6, but even it can't keep up with other three-row SUVs.

The 2019 Journey will get you where you're going, and it will do so for less money than many competitors. But overall you'll probably be happier with vehicles such as the GMC Acadia, Kia Sorento or Volkswagen Tiguan.

Edmunds' Expert Rating

Acceleration, drivability, seat comfort, ride comfort, noise & vibration, climate control, ease of use, getting in/getting out, driving position, small-item storage, cargo space, child safety seat accommodation, audio & navigation, smartphone integration, driver aids, voice control, which journey does edmunds recommend, 2019 dodge journey models.

All trims come standard with front-wheel drive, with all-wheel drive as an option. Front-wheel-drive SE and Crossroad trims come standard with a 2.4-liter four-cylinder (173 horsepower, 166 pound-feet of torque) paired with a four-speed automatic. Opting for all-wheel drive gets you a 3.6-liter V6 (283 hp, 260 lb-ft of torque) and a six-speed automatic transmission.

Standard feature highlights for the Journey SE include 17-inch steel wheels, automatic headlights, foglights, roof rails, heated side mirrors, a height-adjustable driver's seat, 60/40-split second-row seats and 50/50-split third-row seats (both rows slide and recline). Also included are keyless ignition and entry, a rearview camera, and a six-speaker sound system with a 4.3-inch touchscreen interface and auxiliary audio input.

The SE can be upgraded with the optional Connectivity package (Bluetooth, satellite radio, a USB port, voice commands and a leather-wrapped steering wheel), the Comfort/Convenience package (upgraded cloth upholstery and a power-adjustable driver's seat), the Blacktop package (17-inch alloy wheels and blacked-out exterior trim), and the Premium Group (combines the Connectivity and Comfort/Convenience packages). Remote start and an alarm are also available.

Moving up to the Crossroad gets you the features of the Premium Group plus 19-inch wheels, a touring-tuned suspension, leather upholstery, three-zone climate control with rear-seat vents, and an upgraded 8.4-inch touchscreen infotainment system.

Options available for the Crossroad include remote start, heated front seats, a rear-seat entertainment system, a premium six-speaker stereo system with subwoofer, navigation, a sunroof, and the Driver Convenience package, which brings rear parking sensors and a universal garage door opener.

The range-topping GT trim combines most of the Crossroad's options listed above with unique 19-inch wheels and an upgraded suspension.
