Benefits of Driving a 2011 Dodge Dakota Truck

The Dodge Dakota is one of just a few remaining mid-size pickups, more practically sized for city driving yet almost as capable as their full size counterparts. While the Dakota is no longer the only mid-size truck offering a V8 engine, it still is an excellent hauler, tow-rated at 6,500 lbs.

What's new for 2011?

For 2011, Dodge's mid-size Dakota pickup adds some important safety equipment, side-impact airbags and front and rear curtain airbags. Austin Tan and Inferno Red Crystal Pearl are not available for 2011. Deep Cherry Red Crystal Pearl and Hunter Green Pearl replace them.

Model Strengths

  • Compact size
  • abundant interior storage
  • best-in-class hauling and towing capability
  • powerful available V8.

Model Review

The Dakota's 4.7L V8, which is available across the lineup, makes a brawny 302 horsepower and 329 lb-ft of torque with a class leading 6,500 lbs of towing capacity. The V8 is paired with a 5-speed automatic transmission with available multi-speed overdrive and is capable of operating on E85 ethanol-blended fuel. The standard 210-horsepower, 3.7L V6 engine is only available with a 4-speed automatic transmission.

Safety Ratings help

What do the Safety Ratings mean?

The National Highway Traffic Safety Administration (NHTSA) performs independent crash testing of new vehicles and then assigns them a score based on their performance. The overall crash test rating is based on how a vehicle performs in the following tests:

Driver Crash Grade:

Measures the chance of a serious injury to a crash test dummy that is placed in a driver's seat and driven into a fixed barrier at 35 MPH. A five-star rating means there is 10 percent or less chance of injury.

Passenger Crash Grade:

Similar to the driver crash grade, only now the focus is on the passenger.

Rollover Resistance:

Simulates an emergency lane change to measure the likelihood of a vehicle rolling over. A five-star rating means there is 10 percent or less risk of rollover.

Side Impact Crash Test - Front:

Focuses on the front side of a vehicle. It simulates crashes that can occur in intersections by striking a 3,015-pound weight against the side of a vehicle at 38.5 MPH. A five-star rating means there is 5 percent or less chance of injury.

Side Impact Crash Test - Rear:

Similar to the front side impact test only now the focus is on the rear passenger.
