I over all like it, I thinks its a nice progression to the new front end. I also think it looks better then the new Darango, which to me looks weird because the front end narrows to much. Had the just left is nice and wide like the Ram, I would be all over it.

Ill be intrested to hear what the engine(s) are. Assuming though the will be like the Darango, 3.7 V6, 4.7 V8, Hemi anyone??? :weirdo:

I agree that the front end looks much more successful than on the new Durango, which looks like it's drooping and ready to fall off.
It's not bad looking, but still not that exciting.

While the Dakota may have the only V8 in its class, and I'll be the first to admit that the new 4.7L is a huge improvment over the old beast 5.9L

The 4.7 (non-high output) puts out 230hp and 290 lb/tq

The new 4.0L V6 from Toyota will put out 245hp and 285 lb/tw

So 15 more Hp, and only 5 less lb/tq and I would be willing to be its gets better gas milage.
