2006 Dodge Dakota ST 4dr Club Cab SB (3.7L 6cyl 6M)


For the money you cannot buy a better small truck. When you compare that you get a v6 with good towing and full truck size for the same money as a single cab tacoma, ranger, colorado, or frontier that only come stock with 4 cylinders, there is no comparison. I bought a full size truck in my eyes for the price of a compact truck. Also the manual transmission is INCREDIBLE. In 6th gear I can run 85 at 2600 rpm which is unheard of with modern cars. So if you want a full size truck for half size money get one, if you want a small truck with fuel economy go buy a tacoma or ranger.

Best Features

Price, standard extended cab, looks, 6th gear, solid v6, solid steering, great manual transmission, mp3 jack standard feature, good seats, large bed, good power, boxed frame, great towing and payload for half size truck

Worst Features

the fuel mileage is terrible but hey its a truck can't expect much. 15 city 18 or so highway
