Like the Ram pickup, the Dakota shares similar styling cues that identify it unmistakably as a Dodge truck. The Dakota Club Cab offers extra room behind the front seats for cargo. Being a midsize truck allows the Dakota to offer real cargo and towing capacity advantages over its compact pickup competition. Engine choices include a 3.7L V-6 and 4.7L V-8, but no Hemi. Both are equipped with a standard 6-speed manual. A more stylish interior with aluminum colored trim adds sophistication to the Dakota.

What Changed:

Dodge trucks are now marketed under a separate brand name of Ram trucks.
