Dodge Dakota has the most powerful standard engine in its class.
Dakota delivers 7,150-pounds of maximum towing capability and a 1,730-pounds payloud when properly equipped.
Dakota features large front disc brakes and standard rear-wheel or available four-wheel antilock brakes on ST, SLT and Laramie.
