Dakota has always been among the most popular cars manufactured by Dodge, and the 2015 Dodge Dakota was one of the most anticipated cars in 2014 and 2015. Dakota has many traditional characteristics hence it had huge success on the American market. However, it has not become high-flyer on European and Asian market. Therefore all marketing efforts are focused on the US and Canada. American market is saturated with pickups and thus marketers must invest lots of endeavors in order to make their car (and company) more competent. 2015 model is going to face slight redesign. It is going to be a great mixture of retro and modern styles. According to the first photos it seems Dakota will be more modernized than before. Many people don’t know that Dakota is actually being manufactured in Mexico. However, quality of the Dodge Dakota 2015 is not questionable.
2015 Dodge Dakota Engine
There were many speculations about the engine of the 2015 Dodge Dakota, but when Dodge finally announced units it will use, majority was satisfied. Offer is consisted of two different units, one old version and one new unit. The ‘old’ engine is the 3.7-liter six-cylinder. This unit is able to produce 210 HP, which is less comparing to the other pick-up trucks. Dakota has never been known as a pickup with a lot of power, but reliability and durability are the main characteristics.
On the other side, there is slightly more powerful unit. It is the 4.7-liter that can pump up 20 HP more than the old version. We believe that successors of the 2015 Dodge Dakota are going to have engines which will stand side by side with other American pickups. Perhaps, the biggest advantage of this truck is fuel consumption since it can reach 30 mpg. Transmission is either six-speed manual or five-speed automatic.
Dodge Dakota 2015 Interior and Exterior
To tell you the truth, the 2015 Dodge Dakota is not among the prettiest pickup trucks on the American market. It has a little bit boxy shape which many people don’t find attractive. Perhaps the biggest advantage of the brand-new Dakota is the space. It offers plenty of legroom for passengers and it has huge trunk at the back. Ride in it is quite convenient and it can also be used for an off-road drive.
There are few color options but we find black the most suitable (however red looks good, as well). Cabin is wrapped in black leather and it looks quite elegant. It is also equipped with the latest gadgets. Navigation system has been updated and there is new stereo system. We bet you will enjoy the ride in the 2015 Dodge Dakota.
2015 Dodge Dakota Price
The price of the Dodge Dakota 2015 isn’t too much different than the price of the previous model. There were not many modifications therefore there was no reason for increasing the price. Price range is between $40,000 and $60,000.
For $60,000 you will get a top-notch pickup truck and for the $40,000 you will have all features. However, even the standard version can deliver the goods and it is as reliable as the top model.
