2008 model year changes
For 2008, Dodge's mid-size Dakota pickup gets a new optional V8 that's much more powerful than the one it replaces, yet it is also more refined and fuel-efficient. The Dakota also has been dressed-up with new styling for 2008 inside and out. Exterior changes include a new hood, grille, fenders, and headlamps, plus a protective surface for the cargo-box sides and built-in utility rails. Inside there's a new instrument panel and center console, and new trims and finishes, plus expanded storage areas, including a center console bin for electronics. A heated front bench seat is newly available, and the MyGig Infotainment System, which is already available on some other Dodge models, is now offered on the Dakota.
Manageable size; hauling and towing capability; powerful available V8.
Special features for 2008
The 2008 Dodge Dakota is one of just a few mid-size pickups, more practically sized for city driving yet almost as capable as the full-size trucks. It offers the only available V8 in its pickup class, and has a best-in-class towing capacity of 7,050 pounds. It is also the only mid-size pickup to offer full-time four-wheel drive, and has the longest and largest standard cargo bed among its competitors, at 6'-6" for the extended cab.
