Another mid-size pickup, which has an engine V8, a Chevrolet Colorado.In 2011, this pickup gets some important standard security options, namely, ABS and side airbags. The navigation system is no longer available, and the model for off-road TRX4 also discontinued
For 2011, Dodge Dakota gets the antilock brakes as standard (finally) and side airbags. But when it comes to internal processing, it remains to be desired. Although there is a pickup truck Dakota and advantages, for example – comfortable rear seats. But when it comes to landing in the car, once you realize that it is not designed to pamper its owner, is also worth noting that the interior is made of hard plastic and cheap looking.
All models Dodge Dakota 2011 powered by a standard 3.7-liter V6, which produces 210 hp Four stuperchaty “machine” is the only available transmission with this engine. Also, rear-wheel drive is standard on all models of Dakota, an additional four-wheel drive is available.

Dodge Dakota 2011 c 3,7-liter V6 engine is ideal for trips around town. But if you want to really cool pickup, then I suggest you look at the model with the 4.7-liter V8 engine.
