    Chrysler considers car-based pickup
    1231539300

    Upcoming CAFE regulations may sound the death knell that renders the mid-size pickup segment officially spent. Sales of the not-quite full-size trucks have been dwindling at an even faster pace than their larger brothers, and much of the blame can be attributed to the small price and efficiency improvements that the smaller trucks can offer, especially ...

    In the Autoblog Garage: 2008 Dodge Dakota Sport
    1205164680

    When we first locked eyes on the 2008 Dodge Dakota at the 2007 Chicago Auto Show, we were breathless. The reason for our inability to process oxygen had everything to do with the ungainly sheet metal that covered the latest iteration of Dodge's midsize truck offering. The new Dakota is boxy with an awkward, Pug-like front end, and the interior is ...

    It's the small things that count - Dodge's new Crate 'N Go storage system
    1188923700

    Despite "interesting" exterior designs and interiors that feel cheap, Chrysler products have scored many points for incorporating the most innovative interior features. Stow 'N Go seating, the MyGIG entertainment system, heated and cooled cupholders, flip down tailgate speakers... the list goes on. It's time to add one more to the list as the 2008 Dodge ...

    2008 Dodge Dakota priced from $20,080
    1184018820

    When the 2008 Dodge Dakota was unveiled in Chicago, we weren't sure what to think of the styling, but it was nice to see that Dodge's midsize pickup finally got serious with the V8 powerplant again. A 302-hp engine is great for speed and hauling, but a value price is what's going to move the Dakota off lots, and Dodge has announced pricing that has ...

    Chicago Preview: Dodge facelifts the Dakota for 2008
    1170626520

    The Dodge Dakota used to be a strong-seller in the mid-size pickup truck segment. It could even be argued that the first generation Dakota invented the mid-sized truck segment when it was introduced in the mid-'80s, being significantly larger than the Chevy S-10, Ford Ranger and other compact trucks of the time. But in recent years, particularly since the ...

    Spy Shots: 2008 Dodge Dakota
    1166207160

    Although Dodge made a few changes to the midsize Dakota pickup for 2007, it looks like bigger changes are in store for '08. With spy shots by Brenda Priddy in hand, Edmund's Straighline is speculating that the recently updated 3.7L V-6 will be replaced by Chrysler's 4.0L unit and that the existing 4.7L V-8s will simply get a few extra ponies. Besides the ...
