The Car Connection's Take

TCC Rating

7.4
7.8

TCC’s Bottom Line

Especially with the improved V-8, the 2008 Dodge Dakota can do most of what a full-size truck can while consuming fewer resources in the process. The 2009 HUMMER H3T is the off-roader's dream of a factory-built pickup that is practical during the workweek and capable of outrageous off-road fun on weekends.
