2006 Dakota Overview

The Dodge Dakota is a mid-size pickup with a full-size attitude.Dakota is the largest pickup in its class and the only mid-size truck available with a V8.Dodge claims its 7150-pound maximum towing capacity is by far the best in class.

The Dakota looks big.Completely redesigned for 2005, it's larger than before and looks almost as big and tough as the full-size Dodge Ram.With sales of basic small trucks in steady decline, the market is headed toward bigger, more powerful, better-equipped pickups.(If you want a small, basic truck, you have a choice between the Ford Ranger and used pickups.)

The current Dakota is substantially longer than the previous-generation (pre-2005) version, with styling that mirrors the recently redesigned Durango SUV.Getting in is easy, and the redesigned interior is comfortable and convenient with controls that are easy to reach and operate.The Club Cab version of the Dakota achieved a five-star safety rating in frontal and side-impact crash tests conducted by the federal government.

For 2006, the rear doors on Club Cabs have been redesigned to open wider.Otherwise, changes between 2005 and 2006 are limited to packaging: A new sunroof and new sound systems are options for 2006 Club Cab models.An auxiliary audio jack has been added to allow playback from personal audio devices, such as an iPod.Sirius Satellite Radio now comes standard on 2006 Laramie models.Special-edition packages have been added to personalize your 2006 Dakota.

If you want a pickup that's big and brawny, but not as big as a full-size, you should visit your local Dodge dealer.Dakota is available with a choice of V6 and V8 engines.Underway, the Dakota is smooth and quiet.The optional 4.7-liter V8 burbles subtly in the background when cruising, but really scoots when the throttle is mashed.Yet its fuel economy is rated within 1 mpg of the standard V6's.The steering is light for easy maneuverability in crowded parking lots and the Dakota responds quickly on mountain roads and tracks nice and straight on the highway.
