About Dodge Dakota
Even after it was redesigned in 2005, the Dakota continued to share the same platform as the new Dodge Durango SUV (which was now even more similar to the Ram platform). This model is 3.7 inches (94 mm) longer and 2.7 inches (69 mm) wider than its predecessor, and it also has rack-and-pinion steering in addition to updated front and rear suspension. Due to cost-cutting measures and efforts to speed up the assembly process, this new generation model now has five-lug wheels instead of the six-lug wheels found on the previous generation. At the Warren Truck Assembly plant in Warren, Michigan, the Dakota is constructed from start to finish.
There was a V6 engine as well as two V8 engines available: The Magnum V8 with the standard 4.7 liter displacement and the V8 High Output or HO variant both have 4.7 liters of displacement each. The base engine is a 3.7 liter Magnum V6. 210 horsepower (157 kW) and 235 pound-feet (319 Nm) of torque are generated by the 3.7-liter V6 engine. The 230 horsepower (172 kW) and 295 pound-feet (400 Nm) of torque are produced by the 4.7-liter V8 engine with standard output. The high-output 4.7-liter V8 engine generates 260 horsepower (194 kW) and 310 pound-feet of torque (420 Nm). In 2005 and 2006, the 3.7 L and 4.7 L V8s with standard output were both offered with the option of a manual transmission with six speeds. This configuration option is no longer available on V8 models as of 2007.
In addition to receiving a facelift in terms of its aesthetic, the current generation did not come in a regular cab model. There was a choice between the Club Cab and the Quad Cab, but neither one was available. Late in the year 2005, Dakota R/T was brought back for the 2006 model year, but all that changed were the exterior aesthetics. Despite the fact that “R/T” stands for “Road and Track,” the most recent iteration of the Dakota R/T was nothing more than an available option package. It featured a hood scoop that did not actually function, an exclusive gauge cluster, and side stripes in the shape of hockey sticks. The package was offered on models with both two-wheel drive and four-wheel drive configurations.
