A pickup truck produced by Dodge from 1987-2009, rebranded as the Ram Dakota for 2010-2011 when the Ram brand was spun off as its own marque.

History

The following section is an excerpt from Wikipedia's Dodge Dakota page on 25 September 2018, text available via the Creative Commons Attribution-ShareAlike 3.0 Unported License.

The Dodge Dakota, known as the Ram Dakota for the final two years of production, is a mid-size pickup truck from Chrysler's Ram (formerly Dodge Truck) division. From its introduction through 2009, it was marketed by Dodge. The first Dakota was introduced in 1986 as a 1987 model alongside the redesigned Dodge Ram 50. The Dakota was nominated for the North American Truck of the Year award for 2000. The Dakota has always been sized above the compact Ford Ranger and Chevrolet S-10, but below the full-sized pickups such as Dodge's own Ram. It is a conventional design with body-on-frame construction and a leaf spring/live axle rear end. The Dakota is the first mid-size pickup with an optional V8 engine. One notable feature was the Dakota's rack and pinion steering, a first for work trucks.[clarification needed] Dakotas have been used by police and fire departments, as off-road vehicles, patrol trucks, or even brush trucks.
