If we can trust the latest rumors about this pickup, the company seems to be gearing up to bring it back as a 2019 Dodge Dakota. This medium truck was in production for 24 years. The first model came into being in 1987. It was produced until 1996, when the second generation arrived. Finally, the third generation can be found in 2005 and production was discontinued in 2011. So we can say with justification that the company avoided a global generation with this truck and the Dakota 2019 comes after eight years of braking. Therefore, we expect that many new services and design technologies will help the new model stand out in the marketplace. There are rumors that the new model is entering the year.
We can say that the 2019 Dodge Dakota will be a brand new model. After almost seven years, it is difficult to expect some more important relationships with the previous generation. The last variant of this truck was discontinued because the whole segment was in low sales crisis. Even so, the situation is different today and both Ford and Chevrolet use new versions of the well-known Ranger and Colorado trucks. The 2019 Dodge Dakota will come when you compete again with these models. What exactly can be expected of the new model is still unclear. We will certainly see many new services and technologies. The new truck receives a completely new design, adapted to the brand’s new design language. We assume that different versions will be offered, with different body shapes, levels of equipment, motors, etc.
When it comes to powertrain, the new 2019 Dodge Dakota undoubtedly does not have much in the typical third generation model. The basic system is probably a well-known 3.6-liter Pentastar V6 engine. It comes with a new 9-speed automatic transmission. We also saw a smaller 4-inline engine on offer. According to some reports, the new Dakota 2019 will also be available in a variant with diesel engine.
