Least Expensive Truck with 6010 Gvwr
By Autoservicecenter on


2007 Dodge Dakota SLT 4dr Club Cab 4WD SB (3.7L 6cyl 6M)


I needed a truck that met the weight requirement of over 6000 lbs and over a 6 ft box to qualify for IRS Section 179 100% tax depreciation in the first year. I did not want a big full sized truck to do it, so I searched the market and found 2. The Honda Ridgeline and the Dakota. The Ridgeline was underpowered. The Dakota is perfect. GVWR of 6010 lbs and a 6.6 ft box meet Section 179 requirements. I test drove other 4x4's and only the Dakota rides perfect on rough roads - not to loose and not jarring stiff. The cabin is nice and quiet at interstate speeds. The 4.7 L High Output V8 pulls hard on hills, blasts around when passing traffic, tows 7500lbs and gets 20 highway mpg.

Best Features

Quiet interior, plenty of power, reasonable economy for 4x4, swing back rear doors, strong metal in body, Timing chain not belt, easy access to change fluids on engine and transmission.

Worst Features

Bigger spoiler on front bumper to improve underbody aerodynamics, body colored rear mud flaps as standard equipment.
