2010 Dodge Dakota TRX CrewCab Truck

2010 Dodge Dakota Review

(2 Stars)  Not long for this world

Reviewed by Automobile Magazine on

Overview
The new Dodge Dakota may be the last vehicle in the Dodge truck line up to have a body on the frame. Almost all other models are moving to a unibody style and this cool truck will be sure to follow suit soon. The Dakota will be discontinued soon, but there is one last run of these midsized trucks coming out first. You can take advantage of the Dakota in a three door cab or a full four door extended cab. The Dodge Dakota is a very well equipped smaller truck and it offers a 1,800 pound payload when towing. This midsize truck offers a lot of punch from its small form. The Dakota will be replaced by the standard Ram 1500 which is comparable in price, but does not offer as many extras as the Dakota.

The Dodge Dakota does not offer much room for interior but with a 5 foot bed you can always bring what you need along with you in the back. This will mark the last year for this truck so if you are Dakota fan, take advantage of the dealer sales this fall.
