The Car Connection's Take
TCC Rating
6.8
7.8
TCC’s Bottom Line
The 2010 Dodge Dakota could be a fine full-size pickup alternative, but its lack of standard safety gear, sloppy handling, and low-grade fit and finish knock it out of contention. The 2010 Honda Ridgeline is a more road-friendly solution for those who need occasionally heavy-hauling ability.
