The Dodge engineers got really serious about building a compact pickup car somewhat around late 80-s. Until that time the company’s management wasn’t really interested in that market. That’s how Dacota was born, the first midsize pickup truck that ever existed. It was first introduced in 1986 and followed by the second generation of models in 1991. There was one more generation, the more recent model of which appeared in 2005 and was produced until 2011. There are certain rumors that Chrysler's Ram division is working on the fourth generation but no one knows for sure.

The recent version of Dakota is the first truck to receive a V8 engine. This version has five general trim levels: TRX, Sport, Laramie, ST and STX. The LoneStar and BigHorn trim levels were also available but very limited. This car was initially equipped with V6 210 hp engine that was completed with V8 230 hp and 4.7 liter engine later. The V8 could also be equipped with five-speed automatic transmission, while only four-speed auto is available for the V6 version. Both of them however have a basic six-speed manual transmission.

The Dakota got the look it has today in 2008. The new lines of the car with fresh style and appearance were completed with redesigned control panel. Along with the exterior visible changes Dakota got some new technological equipment inside as well. The new multimedia system with the name MyGIG was introduced, which has a built-in hard drive navigation system. Safety Group was supplemented with standard airbags and antilock brakes that were optional in previous generations.

The new Dakota is available in two- or four-wheel drive versions and two cab configurations: the so known Club Cab with the extended cab and the Quad Cab for a family vehicle. If you’re planning to use this car for business as well as family rides the Quad Cab is your choice. Comfortable, easy and simple to control, Dodge Dakota makes a really great economy car for anyone who likes comfort and safety and makes them their priority.
