Pros

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


Model Highlights

The Dakota's 4.7L V8, available in the Bighorn/Lonestar, Laramie and TRX editions, makes a brawny 302 horsepower and 329 lb-ft of torque with a class leading 7100 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 paired with either a 6-speed manual transmission in the ST or four-speed automatic in all other models.

A fully boxed, ladder-type frame, with hydro-formed main rails for added strength, underpins the Dakota. And, an independent front suspension with coil-over-shock arrangement helps yield a good ride.

Rear anti-lock brakes are standard on the Dakota while electronic stability control is not available. For safety and security, Dodge has installed advanced multistage driver and front-passenger airbags and side curtain airbags along with a safety cage that features energy-absorbing crush zones to protect passengers.

Across the line of Dakotas there are two cab configurations: extended cab or crew cab. And, as with most pickups, the Dakota is available in a wide range of models and trims to fit the work environment.

The ST isn't as stripped-down as other base-model pickups; it includes air conditioning, tinted rear windows, and an AM/FM/CD sound system with four speakers.

The Big Horn/Lonestar editions upgrade to popular equipment including 17-inch aluminum wheels, a tilt steering wheel with mounted audio controls, cruise control, power windows, locks, and mirrors, and innovative storage options including the new "Crate-N-Go" system that puts collapsible, removable crate storage under the rear seats to contain anything from tools to groceries. Also available with the Big Horn/Lonestar edition is the "UCONNECT" system. Its voice activation technology and touch screen capability with wireless Bluetooth-enabled calling, real time traffic guidance and Sirius Satellite programming make the UConnect system a comprehensive hub of information and entertainment technology.

For top of the line comfort and convenience the Laramie offers features such as premium 6-speaker sound by Alpine, a sliding rear window with defrost, 6-way power driver seat with lumbar support, leather wrapped steering wheel with mounted audio controls, sentry key theft deterrent system with remote start, fog lamps and "Full Swing" rear doors on the extended cab.

The TRX edition takes the interior comfort and convenience of the Laramie and adds details designed for the off-road enthusiast which include 16-inch rugged trail tires, tow hooks, molded in-color fender flares and bolstered bucket seats.


Model News

For 2009, Dodge's mid-size Dakota pickup sees a shake-up in its trim levels, eliminating the SLT and Sport editions and redistributing the options among the remaining ST, Big Horn, Laramie and TRX. Other changes include a dual-position tailgate for more cargo hauling options, increased body color and wheel options, new "Crate-N-Go" storage in the cab and E85 ethanol-blend flex-fuel capability in the available V8. There is also an increase in price seen mostly in the lower level trims.


Value Writeup

The 2009 Dodge Dakota is one of just a few mid-size pickups, more practically sized for city driving yet almost as capable as its full size counterpart. While the Dakota is no longer the only mid-size truck offering a V8 engine, it still wears the crown for best-in-class towing capacity. Along with its beefy powertrain the 2009 Dodge Dakota offers loads of comfortable interior space and storage.

Summary
Chrysler is recalling certain model year 2009-2010, Ram 1500 and Dodge Dakota trucks, manufactured from July 1, 2009, through November 30, 2009, because a rear axle pinion nut may loosen due to a lack of adhesive.

Consequence
If the rear axle pinion nut loosens, the axle can lock up and cause a loss of vehicle control and/or a vehicle crash with little warning.

Chrysler will notify owners, and dealers will install a pinion nut retainer, free of charge. The recall is expected to begin during November 2012. Owners may contact Chrysler at 1-800-247-9753.

Chrysler's recall campaign number is M34. 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.

Chrysler will notify the affected Chrysler and Dodge owners and Mitsubishi will notify the affected Raider owners. Dealers will replace the driver's frontal air bag inflator, free of charge. The recall began for Chrylser on June 8, 2015. The recall for Mitsubishi stated on June 24, 2015. Chrysler and Dodge owners may contact Chrysler customer service at 1-800-853-1403. Mitsubishi owners may call 1-888-648-7820. Chrysler's number for this recall is R25. Note: This recall supersedes recall 14V817 in its entirety.

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.

Summary
Chrysler is recalling certain model year 2009-2012 Ram 1500 trucks manufactured from February 27, 2008, through June 30, 2009, and from December 1, 2009, through October 20, 2011; model year 2009-2011 Dodge Dakota trucks manufactured from February 27, 2007, through June 30, 2009, and from December 1, 2009, through September 30, 2011; model year 2009 Chrysler Aspen trucks manufactured from January 3, 2008, through December 18, 2008; and model year 2009 Dodge Durango trucks manufactured from January 3, 2008, through December 18, 2008. The rear axle pinion nut may loosen due to an undersized pinion spline that can allow relative motion between the nut and companion flange.

Consequence
If the rear axle pinion nut loosens, the axle can lock up and cause a loss of vehicle control and/or a vehicle crash with little warning.

Chrysler will notify owners, and dealers will install a pinion nut retainer, free of charge. The recall is expected to begin during May 2013. Owners may contact Chrysler at 1-800-247-9753.

This campaign is an expansion of a recall campaign 12V-474. Chrysler's recall campaign number is N08. 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.

Additionally, unless included in "Zone A" above, Chrysler is also recalling 2004-2008 RAM 1500, 2005-2009 RAM 2500, 2006-2009 RAM 3500, 2007-2009 RAM 3500 Cab Chassis, 2008-2009 RAM 4500 and 5500 Cab Chassis, 2004-2009 Dodge Durango, 2007-2009 Chrysler Aspen, 2007-2009 Jeep Wrangler, 2008-2009 Dodge Challenger, 2005-2008 Dodge Magnum, 2005-2009 Chrysler 300, 2006-2009 Dodge...

Consequence
These vehicles are equipped with certain air bag inflators assembled as part of the passenger frontal air bag modules, and used as original equipment or replacement equipment.

An inflator rupture may result in metal fragments striking the vehicle occupants resulting in serious injury or death.

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.

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).
