Dakota

The mid-size Dakota pickup underwent a complete makeover last year and became larger and more powerful in the process. The rugged-looking, hard-working truck comes in rear- and four-wheel-drive models and offers a choice of two-door, five-passenger Club Cab and four-door, six-passenger Quad Cab versions. The base engine remains a 3.7-liter V-6 that generates 210 horsepower and 235 lb-ft of torque. Unlike the competition, the Dakota offers an available eight-cylinder powerplant, a 4.7-liter Magnum V-8 that generates 230 horsepower. A five-speed manual transmission is standard across the line, while a choice of four- and five-speed automatic gearboxes is also available. The five-speed automatic includes a unique dual-ratio second gear for better power management in towing, passing, and grade-change situations. Few updates are evident for 2006.

How does the
TCC Rating work?
The TCC Rating is a clear numeric rating value based on a 10-point scale that reflects the overall opinion of our automotive experts on any vehicle and rolls up ratings we give each vehicle across sub-categories you care about like performance, safety, styling and more.

Our rating also has simple color-coded “Stop” (red), “Caution” (orange),
or “Go” (green) messages along with the numerical score so you can easily understand where we stand at a glance.

Our automotive experts then also collect and show you what other websites say about these different aspects of any vehicle. We do this leg work for you to simplify your research process.
