Go V-8 for the power
By Brian on


2006 Dodge Dakota Laramie 4dr Club Cab SB (3.7L 6cyl 4A)


Pretty good truck overall. Average 19- 20 mpg with no load and city/hwy mix. With load drops to 17-18 mpg. Has a good ride but wind noise has picked up over time. Ignition module went out at 40000 just over warranty ($400). I really enjoy the truck overall. I was at the dealer and talked about trade for kicks. The V-8 is undesirable over the V-6 even though you only gain 1-2 mpg with the V-6. The V-8 has the power to haul and get you on the road as the V-6 was a dog to me.

Best Features

Sirius Radio. U-connect. Laramie features give the best bang for the buck in my opinion.
