However, there is a good news. There will be a new Dodge Dakota soon. That’s right, we will see the New Dodge Dakota this year. Let’s see what it will come with, shall we?
2020 Dodge Dakota Redesign & Changes
The upcoming 2020 Dodge Dakota will use a unibody platform. This uni-body platform is going to improve not only the new Dakota’s aerodynamics but also its overall performance as well. There will be improvements in its suspension system, so we expect a better stability and handling from it.
In terms of exterior, there will be 2020 Dodge Dakota redesign. We are going to see distinctive changes as well as design improvements. Indeed, the new Dakota will have a refreshed, more modern look than the previous Dakotas.
The body will be bolder and will have more rounded features. A set of LED headlamps and a redesigned grille will be present. The bumper will be sportier and have a more modern look. We are likely to see lots of chrome details on it as well.
For the interior, the 2020 Dakota will have a comfortable and spacious cabin. The mid-size pickup truck will be able to accommodate five adult passengers nicely. Moreover, the cabin will be furnished with high-quality materials. The eats will be covered in high-quality materials and will be comfortable and adjustable.
The upcoming Dakota is going to have a modern dashboard and a steering wheel with lots of functions. There will also be a touchscreen display with infotainment, navigation, connectivity options for smartphones, audio system and most importantly, driver assists features and safety systems.
Engine Specs & Performance
Alright, what about the engine? Will there be any improvement for the new Dakota? It seems so. As we all know, the main problem of the previous Dakota is its poor performance and bad fuel economy. We expect Dodge to fix that problem. After all, Dodge has stated that it will try to make the new Dakota get a fuel economy of 30 mpg and will use engines that have better fuel use.
There will be two engine options available. The first is a 3.7-liter, V6 engine with an output of 210 horsepower and 239 lb-ft of torque. This engine is probably used in a base model. The second is a 4.7-liter, V8 engine capable of producing 265 horsepower and 330 lb-ft of torque. Unlike the first engine, this engine is optional. Both of these engines are going to be paired with 5- or 6-speed automatic transmission gearbox.

As for 2020 Dodge Dakota release date, we don’t know the exact date. That said, the upcoming Dakota is expected to enter the market by the end of this year. As for the price, we estimate the starting price to be around $35,000.
Many fans have been looking forward to New Dodge Dakota coming back. It seems that the upcoming Dodge Dakota will come with lots of improvements, especially in terms of performance and fuel economy. Let’s just wait and see how the upcoming mid-size pickup will be. We do expect it to be better than its predecessors.
