Car and Driver

The 2008 Dodge Dakota comes in lightly equipped work versions and plusher luxury versions, as well as with selections from a wide range of cabs and drivetrains.

Kelley Blue Book says the Dakota comes in SLT, TRX, Sport, ST, SXT, and Laramie trims. The variances here are really between transmission type, engine type, and two- or four-wheel drive.

Automedia reports “rough-and-ready TRX editions get new fender flares, bodyside moldings, an accent grille, tow hooks, and black headlight bezels. Sport models are upgraded with unique two-tone fabric seats and chrome textures. Red/black-upholstered seats in the Sport model are particularly striking, flaunting a sporty flair.”

Every Dakota comes standard with cruise control, tilt steering, "CD player, MP3 capability and satellite radio as standard equipment," Cars.com states.

Car and Driver notes additional features, including "stain-resistant fabrics and the MyGIG infotainment system."

Automedia points out useful features, such as the “removable cupholders in the console have modular inserts and a pullout bin for electronic gadgets (including an MP3 player, which can be plugged into the Dakota's audio systems) or a cell phone. Chrysler's UConnect hands-free operation is available, too.”

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.
