1993 Dodge Dakota Overview
Overall User Score
Based on 16 reviews
The Dodge Dakota dealt in firsts. It was the first pickup with rack and pinion steering. The first mid-size pickup with a V8 engine. And in 1993, the first pickup of any size to get four-wheel anti-lock brakes.
Other than the optional ABS and resdesigned front seats, the 1993 Dodge Dakota didn't mess with the success it had with its 1992 models. Available in both regular cab (6.5-foot and 8-foot beds), extended Club Cab (6.5-foot bed), and Sport models, characterized by a roof-bar with lights and body-colored fenders and grille, all models came standard 2WD and 5-speed manual transmission, with optional 4WD and 4-speed automatic.
Engine choices ranged from the 2.5-liter, 99-horsepower, to the 3.9-liter, 180-horsepower, to the mopar-like V8, which rated at 230-horsepower, guaranteeing drivers to be first off the line not only against any full-size pickup, but, with a little tuning, many a street racer out there today.
Owners love the handling and sturdiness of the Dakota pickup, as well as the power of the V8. The 3.9-liter gets some complaints of sluggishness. And while they praise the comfort of the roomy cab, most feel the rear back seat (a generous term) is cramped and not made for human use.
