The Journey is alone offered in two trims for the 2020 archetypal year.
The 2020 Dodge Journey is the least-expensive three-row crossover accessible in the United States. Costing bags beneath than its competition, the Journey offers austere amount for budget-minded buyers. Unfortunately, that’s about area the affairs credibility end.
Dodge originally launched the Journey in 2008 for the 2009 archetypal year, and added than a decade later, the crossover abundantly charcoal the same. A notable amend in 2011 brought an bigger autogenous blueprint and bigger actual quality, but otherwise, the crumbling Journey is the aforementioned as it’s anytime been.
At one time, the Journey was accessible with V6 ability and alternative all-wheel drive, but both of those are gone for 2020. Now, the alone agent accessible is an bloodless 2.4-liter I4, with 172 application and 165 pound-feet of torque. It’s akin alone to a four-speed automated manual which, for a 2020 archetypal year vehicle, is absolute archaic.
Unfortunately, this low-powered agent doesn’t aftereffect in any ammunition abridgement benefits. The EPA ante the 2020 Journey at 19 afar per gallon city, 25 mpg artery and 21 mpg combined. For reference, a larger, three-row 2020 Honda Pilot offers a essentially added able V6 agent and allotment 19 mpg city, 27 mpg artery and 22 mpg combined.
The Journey’s berth is best declared as actuality anatomic aloft all. The abject SE Amount trim comes with bolt seats, while the Crossroad has leather. Every Journey comes accepted with three rows of seats, which bend collapsed to action acceptable burden accommodations. The added row has a 40/60 split, while the third row seats use a 50/50 split.
With all of its seats up, the Journey offers aloof 10.7 cubic anxiety of amplitude abaft the third row. Bend those flat, and the burden authority expands to 37.0 cubic feet. Finally, with both rows stowed, there’s a advantageous 67.6 cubic anxiety of amplitude abaft the two advanced chairs.
Even the upgraded 8.4-inch multimedia arrangement lacks Apple CarPlay and Android Auto.
The Journey’s abject multimedia arrangement uses a 4.3-inch touchscreen headunit, with alone basal audio features. An alternative advancement doesn’t access the awning admeasurement any but adds notable appearance like SiriusXM accessory radio and a CD player, in accession to the accepted USB and aux port.
Crossroad models appear with an 8.4-inch touchscreen infotainment system, with Bluetooth connectivity. However, Apple CarPlay and Android Auto are not allotment of the equation. Anchored aeronautics is alone accessible on the Crossroad trim.
As for driver-assistance features, well, there aren’t abounding to discuss. Every Journey comes accepted with parking sensors and a back camera, but that’s about it. Adaptive cruise control? Lane-keeping assist? Blind-spot monitoring? Rear cross-traffic alert? None of those are accessible on the 2020 Dodge Journey.
You can’t get the Dodge Journey with all-wheel drive anymore.
Official appraisement has yet to be appear as of this broadcast date, but we don’t apprehend prices to change too abundant against the 2019 Journey. That agency the SE Amount trim should appear in about $25,000, with the Crossroad advantageous about $32,000.
The SE Amount can be had with a Blacktop package, which adds a appearance atramentous grille and unique, 17-inch wheels. The Popular Equipment Group adds a six-way ability driver’s seat, Bluetooth, three-zone altitude ascendancy and more.
The Crossroad’s Popular Equipment Group nets you alien start, acrimonious advanced seats, a acrimonious council caster and anchored aeronautics in the 8.4-inch touchscreen infotainment system. An added rear ball arrangement can be optioned on the Crossroad, which includes an overhead, 9-inch video awning and wireless headphones.
The 2020 Journey will access in Dodge dealers this fall.
