2005 Dodge Dakota 4dr Quad Cab SLT Rwd SB (3.7L 6cyl 6M)


I suppose Dodge could have done a better job with the design of this vehicle --- but I really don't know how. This truck is so refined. The ride is great -- road and engine (4.7 V-8) noise is minimal -- handling is fantastic. I have been pleasantly surprised with the fuel economy. It will turn exactly as advertised on the sticker (15/20 mpg). I have made two 600 mi round trips and found that if I dropped my interstate speed to 62mph that the mileage increased by approx. 10 % to a little over 22 mpg. As you can surmise I really like this vehicle --- just can't understand why they aren't moving off the lots in my area.
