Former Nissan Frontier driver for 10yrs
then decided I wanted a bigger truck.
Went shopping and ended up with an 03
Silverado. Was a little bigger than
I wanted,so went shopping for trucks
again and ended up with
the 04 Dakota SLT with the 4.7 V8 and
LOVE it..Performance is awesome,
comfort is fantastic, and overall
driving is great. It does like gas
stations but no more than most V6's in
general and got 17.5mpg on my 1st
400mile trip so not complaining. Test
drive them all, find a good dealer and
you'll fall in love with the Dakota.
Not as many "gadgets" as the Silverado
but just as comfy and just like the
looks better. Hope this helps ya.
Overall looks, especially the exterior.
4 regular doors, back seat comfort.
Maybe a little better fuel mileage and
more asthetics to the interior but
