2008 Dodge Dakota SLT 4dr Crew Cab SB (3.7L 6cyl 4A)


It has a firm, borderline stiff ride, much less spongy than the previous model years. We have many 2006-07's in our fleet and you can tell the difference. The console and cup holder layout is great and much improved. All controls are easy to reach and use. The ride is quiet. I would recommend the V8 if you need serious power. So far, my 3.7L accelerates good enough and maintains highway speeds adequately. We have had very few quality issues in our fleet so far with Dakotas, and hopefully this series will even be better.

Best Features

The rear storage baskets are collapsible and are a neat feature. The cargo rails w/moveable tie downs are a long-overdue improvement. YES fabrics are nice feature and are easy to clean up, especially good for fleet use.

Worst Features

My old toolbox w/medium depth did not fit this model due to hitting the wheel wells. Will presumably only take a shallow-depth toolbox behind the cab- not sure how they could improve this.
