Good, Reliable Truck — The acceleration is great in this truck. It has a V6 with a 5 speed manual in it and it gets up and goes pretty quick. Its really fun to drive, but I've had to replace several things on it because the used dealership that we got it from said everything is ok in it, but it wasn't. Had to replace the brakes, two tires, spark plugs, spark plug wires, oil, coolant, and windshield wipers. Overall, a good truck. Transmission is great in it and engine runs good.

Primary Use: Utility (towing boats, transporting cargo, etc.)

Pros: 5 speed manual with a v6. Decent fuel economy

Cons: Sits to low to the ground for me but don't want to buy a lift or leveling kit. And not four wheel drive

If You're Looking For Something Unique With Power Give This A Try! — The Dakota R/T's performance is awesome for the small truck with a large motor concept. Dodge uses the same 5.9l in the Ram and shoves it into this midsize truck. Being smaller and closer to the ground also gives it amazing handling for such a small truck. Mind you, the single cabs are more maneuverable with the handling and the braking system on these trucks is perfect. You will use some gas but as they also say "haul ass". I use this truck as a weekend driver and as a performance vehicle as I'm always adding something to it. These motors are forever on performance parts.

Primary Use: Sport/fun (spirited driving, track racing, off-roading, etc.)

Pros: Top reason to drive this vehicle?? Sheer torque and power.

Cons: Sucks gas lol

Great Truck! Don't Let Gas Get You Down — This truck has tons of room. Also being a v8, my truck will take off at the red lights. The gas can be a drag sometimes with prices like they are now, but believe me it's worth it. And finally the 4wd is great for getting out of those tough places.

Primary Use: Sport/fun (spirited driving, track racing, off-roading, etc.)

Pros: 4wd

Cons: gas
