Was looking for a Dakota but like others did not like the new front end. After looking at other mid size trucks and comparing the prices decide to go with this one. Love the V-8 and get the same mpg as a V-6 is great. Has good power and the truck rides great. Interior is comfortable and the kids love all the room they have in the back.
V-8, styling, comfort, and ride. Glad I am one of the lucky few who the V-8.
Shift range of the tranny is a little weird into OD but managable.
