The Dodge Dakota can be credited with helping put the American automaker on the map for midsize pickups. Slotted above traditional compact trucks like Ford's Ranger and the Chevy S-10 but below stalwarts such as the Silverado and Nissan Titan, the Dakota has been able to carve out its own niche within the midsize pickup truck segment. It first rolled off the line in 1987 constructed on Chrysler's NAN platform. The first generation Dodge Dakota was equipped with a 2.2L inline four-cylinder engine or a 3.9L V6, and both were mated to either a five-speed manual transmission or a four-speed automatic. The model was made available with four-wheel drive, but only with the V6 engine. A year later, fuel injection was added to the V6 configuration, but no other major changes were instituted, aside from the addition of the Sport. The Dakota Sport showed off a color leather-wrapped steering wheel, a sliding rear window, remote-control outside mirrors, and carpet floor mats with the model's logo, all included into the list of standard Dodge Dakota parts. The Sport was also given the 3.9L V6 engine. 1989 brought on two very unique versions of the truck. First came the Dakota convertible, which showcased a roll bar and a manual top. The other was the rare Shelby Dakota, which featured a V8 engine. In 1990, Dodge introduced the Club Cab. The Club Cab Dakota still used two doors, however it could fit up to six passengers. A 5.2L V8 joined the lineup in 1991, but outside of a few exterior accents, there weren't many other notable changes made to the truck until the arrival of the second generation.

The second generation of the Dodge Dakota rolled off the line for the 1997 model year and showed off redesigned accessories and Dakota parts as well as numerous engine options, including a 3.9L V6. Pretty soon after, the R/T package was introduced with the Sport trim, boasting a 5.9L V8 engine capable of around 250 horsepower. This engine gave the Dakota a substantial amount of attention, as the truck became the only one in its class with an available V8 configuration. 2000 saw the addition of a four-door Quad Cab added to the Dakota roster (which saw the bed shortened to 63 inches on these models). Also for the 2000 model year, a new 4.7L SOHC V8 was added, replacing the previous 5.2L V8. In 2002, chrome wheels became available and in 2003, body molding was implemented as an available option. This marked the year when the R/T package became its own stand-alone trim level. And in 2004, the 3.7L PowerTech V6 (210) horsepower was introduced, taking over for the previous 3.9L V6.

2005 welcomed in the third generation of the Dodge Dakota. The base engine was still the 3.7L V6 (210 horsepower) with a more powerful 4.7L V8 also available, both directed through an automatic transmission. The Club Cab offers a 6'6" bed while the Quad Cab shortens it up with a 5'4" bed, although the Quad Cab is the primary choice for truckers with families. In 2006, the R/T package made a return on both two and four-wheel drive models. 2007 brought on another redesign, which was first shown at the Chicago Auto Show. The base engine was still the 3.7L V6, however, an upgraded 4.7L V8 good for approximately 302 horsepower and 329 pounds-per-foot of torque became available, as well. There have been some changes to the Dodge Dakota parts, including heated bench seats and cargo-utility rails. Since its debut, the Dodge Dakota has been a highly-respected competitor in the field of trucks and a pioneering vehicle in its class. The model has received praise from around the industry, including taking home the 1997 Automobile Magazine Pickup of the Year award. It has also been named a Consumer Guide Best Buy (1999, 2000, 2001, 2002, 2003, and 2004), a Consumer Guide Recommended Buy (2006, 2007, 2008, and 2009), Edmunds.com's Most Wanted Compact Truck (2004), and one of Motor Trend magazine's Fab Five Trucks of the Year (2005).

When it comes to pickups, dependability and handling are the two characteristics most often preferred. After all, that's why people drive them. But eventually, most drivers want to stand apart and see the road from a different view. The Dodge Dakota makes that possible. Sharp insightful accents are showcased throughout the exterior, elevating this truck to the top of the fashion heap. Of course, it also has the power and torque to deliver the goods, but the whole package itself is what impresses the most. A Dodge cornerstone, the Dakota makes its presence felt.
