Have a '92 Dakota Club Cab and needed
more room in back for my kids. The
Quad Cab is perfect. Ride and handling
are great, seats are confortable on
long rides and cabin is pretty quiet
when I leave the kids at home. Love
the power of 4.7 V8 engine; have a 3.9
V6 in the '92 and that engine is weak.
Both trucks have automatic
transmissions. My gas milage for the V8
(14/18)is not much different from the
V6 (14/19) but have to use 89 octane in
the V6 to keep it from pinging. The V8
uses 87 octane no problem. Get the V8,
you'll be happier.
The 4.7 V8 is a blast, plenty of
interior room and great ride and
handling. Big improvement over my '92
Air conditioning a bit weak, takes
awhile to cool down the interior and
don't feel much cool air coming from
vents nearest the doors.
