Dodge Dakota 1996 posters

Dodge Dakota

The first generation of the Dodge Dakota spanned from 1987 to 1996 and was offered with straight-4 and V6 engines, as well as either a 5-speed manual or 4-speed automatic transmission. It could be equipped with four wheel drive, but only if the V6 engine was chosen. Both 6.5 ft (2m) and 8 ft (2.4m) beds were available, and in 1988, fuel injection was added to the 3.9L V6, yet the output remained the same. In 1989, an unusual convertible version of the Dakota was introduced. This was the first convertible pickup truck since the Ford Model T and featured a fixed roll bar and manual top. Just 2,482 units were sold that first year. Further advancements came with Carroll Shelby as he offered a V8-powered Shelby Dakota. This was his first rear-wheel drive vehicle in two decades. For 1990, the Dakota was fitted with a two-door "Club Cab" model, allowing it to comfortable seat six passengers, although the rear seat was most suitable for children and shorter adults. Additionally, the exterior saw a new aerodynamic grille and hood for the 1991 model, with the 5.2L V8 offered as an option. Both of the V-configuration engines were updated to Magnum specs a year later, increasing the performance of the truck. In 1996, the first generation's final year, the K-based 2.5L I4 engine, which was deemed underpowered compared to its competition, was replaced with the Jeep 2.5L I4, providing 120hp. This engine was then carried over to the newly designed, larger 1997 model.
