5.9 has the power
By Ralph Wiggum III on


2001 Dodge Dakota 4dr Quad Cab Sport 4WD (3.9L 6cyl 5M)


I have the 5.9 and get around 12mpg most of the time. Sometimes 14 or so with highway driving but is worth it if you tow. Its also nice knowing I can accelerate faster than any other truck out there (except 5.9RT, but who wants 2WD).

Best Features

Power, power, power. Even with the length, it is pretty good 4-wheeling...not for Hells Revenge, but OK for reasonable stuff.

Worst Features

Why only 5900 towing capacity? Don't get Mopar hitch. Limited slip dif doesn't work in reverse. Body creaks a lot on bumpy roads.
