About Ram Dakota
The Dodge Dakota was redesigned as the Ram Dakota in its final year of production. Chrysler designed the Dodge Dakota as a mid-size pickup truck. Many parts were shared with existing Chrysler products to reduce investment. And production facilities were shared with Chrysler's full-size D and W models. The first-generation Ram Dakota was produced from 1986 to 1996. But it was slightly upgraded for the 1991 model year. Four- and six-cylinder engines were offered with a five-speed manual or three-speed automatic transmission. All-wheel drive was only available with the V6 engine. Available bed lengths were 2.5 and 2.5 meters. In 1988, fuel injection was added to the V6 engine, but power remained unchanged. In 1988, an EFI system was added to the V6 engine. Power windows and power locks were now optional.
For the 1994 model year, some minor changes were introduced, the most important of which was the installation of a driver's side airbag in the new dual-axle steering wheel. These are also available on the Ram range. Other changes include the elimination of the SE and LE trim levels. The highest trim level has been renamed SLT on new Ram vehicles. These models feature new six-inch chrome-plated steel wheels, similar to Ram's five-inch wheels. Other changes include the color scheme and overall interior. SRS airbags and, as an option, a CD player and a combined cassette/CD player were also introduced in 1994. Leather seats were also available on LE models. New alloy wheels were available.

The third-generation Ram Dakota was introduced at the 2007 Chicago Auto Show. The Dakota has received another cab upgrade and several other improvements. They include integrated cargo boxes, heated seats, best-in-class towing capacity. It has the largest and longest standard bed in its class and the largest cab in a medium-duty truck. The new V8 engine develops 302 hp. The standard engine remains the V6 with 210 hp. Production began in August 2007. Based on the Gladiator's towing and hauling capacity, the Ram Dakota can tow up to 7,650 kg and carry up to 1,600 kg in the trunk. These limits are subject to change as the company releases additional information. However, the estimated average size of the sculpture should be close to these figures. Neither the EPA nor Ram has released any information on Dakota's future fuel economy.
The refreshed 2005 Dakota continues to share a platform with the new Dodge Durango SUV. It is now even closer to the Ram platform. It is 3.7 inches longer and 2.7 inches wider, with a new front and rear wheel suspension and rack-and-pinion steering. The new generation uses five axles instead of the previous generation's six. "The Dakota will be manufactured at the truck assembly plant in Warren, Michigan. In addition to design changes, this generation no longer has a traditional cab. Only Club Cab and Quad Cab configurations are available. In late 2005, the Ram Dakota R/T returned for the 2006 model year, but only with cosmetic changes. A refreshed third-generation Ram Dakota was introduced at the 2007 Chicago Auto Show. The Dakota was redesigned, updated interior, and introduced many other improvements. The trunk integrated new roof rails, heated seats, and best-in-class towing equipment.
