The 2008 Dodge Dakota is one of just a few mid-size pickups, more practically sized for city driving yet almost as capable as the full-size trucks. It offers the only available V8 in its pickup class, and has a best-in-class towing capacity of 7,050 pounds. It is also the only mid-size pickup to offer full-time four-wheel drive, and has the longest and largest standard cargo bed among its competitors, at 6'-6' for the extended cab.
For 2008, Dodge's mid-size Dakota pickup gets a new optional V8 that's much more powerful than the one it replaces, yet it is also more refined and fuel-efficient.
The new 4.7L V8 that's available on the Dakota makes 302 horsepower--a 31 percent increase versus the previous V8--and 329 lb-ft of torque. With two spark plugs per cylinder, an increased compression ratio, a new electronic throttle, and improved airflow, the new engine actually gets improved fuel economy. The V8 is also capable of operating on E85 fuel.
