About Dodge Dakota
The Dodge Dakota is the perfect size for many pickup truck consumers; it’s not too small or too big. The problem is that incentives on full-size trucks, like the Ram, put pressure on potential Dakota buyers to purchase larger trucks.
The Dakota has impressive towing and hauling capabilities, sharp exterior styling and decent interior accommodations, but there’s no regular cab. The Dakota comes in extended cab or crew cab only, riding a shared 131-inch wheelbase. The extended cab has a 6-foot-4-inch cargo box, while the bed in the crew cab is 5 feet 3 inches long.
The Dakota is one of only two compact or midsize trucks available with a V-8 engine. The base power plant is a V-6. Both cabs are available in three trims: ST, Big Horn/Lone Star and Laramie. The TRX4 off-road package is offered only in 4×4 models.
The Dakota’s strongest selling points are its size and capability. Maximum towing capacity is 7,250 pounds, and all V-8 models are rated to tow at least 5,500 pounds (cars.com).
