Dodge Dakota - Drive the best!

2006 Dodge Dakota SLT 4dr Quad Cab SB (3.7L 6cyl 6M)


I have owned Dodge Dakotas since 1991. I have seen the evolution of this truck. I now have the latest 2006 Quad Cab Sport SLT 4.7 high output. What stands out - Heavy duty truck! Very strong and stiff frame, solid sturdy cab and body. Braking is good. Great styling, very comfortable interior. Ram wheels bolt on for instant 20" look. What it lacks - fuel economy, H.O. 4.7 lacks power (compared to the old 5.2 & 5.9 & some V6's) yet has plenty of grunt with bolt on upgrades. Trans is slow to downshift. Body roll on higher speed cornering. Changing oil is messy. The oil drains onto the trans x-member and creates a 15 inch cascading mess. None-the-less, a very impressive truck. Solid.

Best Features

It is the greatest Dakota yet!

Worst Features

Needs the Hemi 5.7 option. The R/T version is weak. Pricing is getting out of hand.
