The Dodge Dakota is a mid-size pickup truck that leans more towards the bigger size in its class. The larger than standard cargo box measures 64 inches in the four door Quad cab and 78 inches in the two door Club cab. It is offered in four different trim levels: ST, Big Horn/Lone Star, TRX4, and Laramie.
The 2-6 passenger pickup is offered with two engines choices The first is a 3.7L V6 producing 210HP and 235 lb-ft of torque and the second is a 4.7L V8 delivering 302HP and 329 lb-ft of torque. These engines are mated to either a 6-speed manual or a 4- and 5-speed automatic.

Waraniak is a design student at College for Creative Studies in Detroit and AMA District 14 motocross racer #936 who races for KTM North America and Seattle-based Jones Soda.
