Despite of the tough competition over the years, Dodge was able to overcome many difficulties in the market. Dakota has gone through radical changes through these past few years in order to maintain its position in the global industry. There have been several revisions and updates on the new pickup truck model. On the other hand, the 2012 Dodge Dakota is more expensive compared to its previous models.

Meanwhile, some critics profusely said that the platform is based from the Jeep Scrambler model.
The Dodge Dakota’s first model was introduced in the late 80s. During that time, Dodge Dakota is the most popular pickup truck among other brands like the Ford Ranger and Mitsubishi-Ram 50. Today, the 2012 Dodge Dakota has climbed over the mountain and marked its name as a lifestyle truck.

The average sales of the Dodge Dakota since 1992 are at least 100,000 units every year. The 2012 Dodge Dakota has a 4-cylinder V6 and V8 engines. Meanwhile, the Dakota’s platform is a set of dimensions, rather than a set of parts. Each year, Dakota becomes heavier and dramatically expensive.
