My Dakota has the 4.7 engine and this "fuels" my only complaint. POOR gas mileage. Its even worse than my 2500HD Chevy truck with a 6 liter engine. We currently own a Mercedes 320, BMW M3, Porsche C4S and the Chevy mentioned above. My Dakota is as good as anything I've got and lots of fun to drive. I will update this information as I accumulate miles and work on the gas mileage with less restrictive intake and exaust. For now I would definitely recommend this truck! PS: I had to rate "reliability" to be able to submit this review, but haven't had it long enough to make true comments about this.
cup holders and storage bins, sound system, ease of using dash controls, 4x4 engagement, seats, excellent ride, good power, exterior appearance,
something about the way the windshield is placed in the cab makes us feel claustrophobic, the 4.7 does not deliver power the way you think it would, the brakes are so far, only marginal
