2005 Dodge Dakota Review

2005 Dodge Dakota Review

Pros

  • Strong engine lineup, choice of part-time or full-time four-wheel drive, comfortable and refined interior, nimble handling.

Cons

  • No long bed or single cab models, club cab's backseat offers barely passable comfort for adults.

What's new

The midsize Dodge Dakota is all new for 2005. Improvements include a hydroformed boxed steel frame, a coil-over front suspension, three excellent engine options, a five-speed automatic or six-speed manual transmission, revised styling and improved build quality.
