Value Writeup

The 2007 Dodge Dakota--positioned as a good compromise between compact pickups and full-size trucks--ranks as the only mid-size pickup with available V8 power, and has a best-in-class tow rating of up to 7,150 pounds, according to Dodge. The Dakota also has an extra five inches of bed width between the wheel wells compared to compact pickup competition, offering more usable bed space, yet with a relatively low bed wall height for easy loading. And the Dakota stands near the top in safety; it carries a five-star rating from the federal government in both frontal and side-impact crash tests and has available side-curtain air bags.


Pros

Available V8; towing ability; safety; maneuverability.


Model Highlights

Dodge's Dakota mid-size pickup is smaller overall than full-size pickups like the Dodge Ram for 2007, yet larger than compact trucks like the Ford Ranger, offering a compromise between the two. Maneuvering the Dakota on city streets isn't as problematic as full-size trucks, yet towing and hauling ability is better than most compact trucks.

The standard engine on the Dakota is a 3.7L V6 making 210 horsepower and 235 lb-ft of torque. The optional 4.7L V8 is offered in two variants; a flexible-fuel version is compatible with E85 fuel and makes 230 horsepower and 290 lb-ft, while a High Output version makes 260 horsepower and 310 lb-ft. The base ST and mid-range SLT have a standard six-speed manual transmission and optional four-speed automatic, while the top-trim Laramie comes only with the automatic.

The Dakota is available in a relatively simplified lineup compared to most other pickups. There are Club Cab or Quad Cab versions of each trim level (ST, SLT, and Laramie), and each one is available with either rear-wheel drive or four-wheel drive. Club Cabs have 180-degree-opening rear access doors, and Quad Cabs have four full-size doors and seating for six. The Club Cab has a 6'6" bed, and the Quad Cab's measures 5'3". The Dakota has a fully boxed frame for improved stiffness and durability over other frame designs, according to Dodge.

In addition to the rear-wheel-only ABS, four-wheel anti-lock brakes with electronic brake-force distribution are optional, as are side-curtain air bags that cover front and rear occupants. The Dakota also comes with knee bolsters.

The ST comes better equipped than most base-level compact pickups, with standard equipment including air conditioning, an AM/FM CD sound system with four speakers, and rear-wheel-only anti-lock brakes. The SLT upgrades to power windows, mirrors, and locks, plus keyless entry, fog lamps, Sirius satellite radio compatibility, and cloth bucket seats with a full console. At the top of the range, the Laramie includes an alarm system, leather bucket seats, a power driver's seat, a premium sound system with six-disc changes, steering-wheel audio controls, and Bluetooth hands-free interface.


Model News

The Dodge Dakota's V6 engine gets an electronic throttle and emissions improvements for 2007, and a new flex-fuel version of the V8 joins the lineup. Remote start and 18-inch chrome-clad wheels, and a chrome accent package are new standalone options on top SLT and Laramie models, and black painted 18-inch alloys are a new option. The Dakota also gets a new dual-position tailgate for all models, and some models with cloth upholstery get stain- and odor-resistant fabric.

Chrysler will notify the Chrysler, Dodge, Jeep and RAM owners. Mitsubishi owners will be notified by their company. Dealers will replace the passenger frontal air bag inflator, free of charge. Chrysler mailed interim notices to owners on July 7, 2016. Owners will receive a second notice when remedy parts become available. Owners may contact Chrysler customer service at 1-800-853-1403. Chrysler's number for this recall is S43.

Summary
Chrysler Group LLC (Chrysler) is recalling certain model year 2004-2007 Dodge Ram 1500 and Durango, 2005-2007 Dodge Ram 2500, Charger, Magnum, Dakota, Chrysler 300, 300C, SRT8, 2006-2007 Dodge Ram 3500 and Mitsubishi Raider, and 2007 Chrysler Aspen. Upon deployment of the driver side frontal air bag, excessive internal pressure may cause the inflator to rupture.

Consequence
In the event of a crash necessitating deployment of the driver side frontal air bag, the inflator could rupture with metal fragments striking and potentially seriously injuring the vehicle occupants.

Chrysler will notify owners, and dealers will replace the driver side frontal air bag inflator, free of charge. Some of the vehicles included in this recall were recalled under safety recall 14V-354, and that addresses vehicles sold, or currently registered, in Florida, Puerto Rico, Hawaii, and the U.S. Virgin Islands. Owners of those vehiicles were notified earlier in December 2014. Chrysler has not determined a date for notifying the remaining owners of vehicles included in this national recall campaign. Owners may contact Chrysler customer service at 1-800-853-1403. Chrysler's number for this recall is P81. Note: This recall supersedes, in part, safety recall 14V-354 as to the driver's air bag inflators on the vehicles included in this recall.

Owners may also contact the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration Vehicle Safety Hotline at 1-888-327-4236 (TTY 1-800-424-9153), or go to www.safercar.gov.

Crash Test Note
Results based on a 35 MPH frontal crash and 38.5 MPH side crash. Results are reported in a range of one to five stars, with five stars indicating the best crash protection for vehicles within the same weight class. This test used driver and passenger belts and airbags.

NHTSA Rollover Rating

Rollover Note
The Rollover Resistance Rating is an estimate of your risk of rolling over if you have a single vehicle crash. It does not predict the likelihood of that crash. The Rollover Resistance Rating utilizes a "fishhook" maneuver which is a series of abrupt turns at varying speeds to see how "top-heavy" a vehicle is. The more "top-heavy" the vehicle, the more likely it is to roll over. The lowest rated vehicles (1-star) are at least four times more likely to roll over than the highest rated vehicles (5-stars).
