The 2024 Dodge Ram Dakota or 2024 Dodge Dakota is a mid-size pickup truck manufactured by Dodge, a division of the Chrysler Corporation. The RAM Dakota was positioned between the compact Dodge Ram and the full-size Dodge Ram trucks in Dodge’s lineup. The RAM Dakota was known for its ruggedness and versatility, offering a combination of a truck’s hauling capability with the maneuverability of a smaller vehicle. The Dodge RAM Dakota is the basis for the Jeep Gladiator, which would race the Ford Ranger, Chevrolet Colorado, GMC Canyon, and Toyota Tacoma.
The Dodge Dakota went through several generations, with various updates and redesigns, and offered a range of engines, including four-cylinder and V6 options, and later V8 engines for increased power and towing capacity. The 2024 Dakota RAM is available in both rear-wheel drive and four-wheel drive configurations, and it had different cab and bed configurations to suit various needs. Dodge Dakota is no longer in production, there are still used models available on the market.
2024 RAM Dakota : Interior
Inside, the interior is the same as the Dodger Ram 1500, without the luxury features of that pickup truck. Still, the smaller pickup truck would likely offer plenty of standard and optional amenities. This could include a heated steering wheel, heated and ventilated front seats, leather upholstery, wireless charging, and more. The lineup would likely offer a crew cabin and a smaller elongated cabin.
The Dodge Dakota offers a massive 12.0-inch display oriented vertically, with the company’s Uconnect infotainment system would likely include desirable content such as Apple CarPlay, Android Auto, and a Wi-Fi hotspot. The base models would likely have a simpler setup but still have the aforementioned features.
2024 RAM Dakota : Engine
The Ram Dakota is a 4.7-liter V8 engine, that delivers ample horsepower and torque, making it suitable for towing and hauling tasks. The 4.7-liter V8 provides responsive acceleration and a capable towing capacity, allowing drivers to tackle demanding jobs with ease. In addition to the V8 engine, the Ram Dakota has also featured V6 engine options. For example, the 3.7-liter V6 engine offers a good balance between power and fuel efficiency.
RAM Truck provides sufficient horsepower for daily driving and light-duty tasks while delivering respectable fuel economy for a truck of its size. The Dakota could tow up to 7650 pounds in the cargo bed and tow up to 1600 pounds. These maximums were never confirmed by Ram, however. Neither the EPA nor Ram has released any information on fuel economy estimates for the RAM Dakota.
