Even though the last model discontinued in 2011, and there is no clear information about 2020 Dodge Dakota, we have plenty of reasons to believe that this is exactly the model that the manufacturer will release next year. After the Ram 1500 was improved, and Ford Ranger returned after the same period of time, there are no reasons for delaying releasing of this model. In that case, it could be similar to other models that this manufacturer makes.
- The model is large and strong for heavy-load.
- The engine could be very strong for the class.
- There are no many modern devices in the cabin.
- We are not sure in the design of the chassis.
The design of 2020 Dodge Dakota should not be much changed from the original design in 2011, but also closer to the Chevrolet Colorado and GMC Canyon as main competitors. The model should be made on the Ram platform, which it shares under the manufacturer’s brand. On the other hand, there are similarities with the old model from 2011, too. It includes large and massive front end, with a wide mesh grille and squared lights. The front and rear ends could be a little old-fashioned, with sharp edges and maybe too simple trunk door.
There is no any information about the cabin inside of 2020 Dodge Dakota. It is for sure that the manufacturer plans to make a comfortable and roomy cabin, with the improved infotainment system, controlled by a 12.5-inch touchscreen. We have concluded that according to other models that the manufacturer has made in past few years.
There are two options when is engine model in 2020 Dodge Dakota is about. The most likely model is the 3.0-liter turbodiesel unit. There is also expected a mild-hybrid system and both V6 and V8 engines as versions of the petrol units. However, there are rumors that Dakota could have 2.0-liter turbo-four engine that is already used on Jeep Wrangler SUV. It produces 270 horsepower of strength and 295 pound-feet of torque. The engine comes matched with eight-speed automatic transmission.
2020 Dodge Dakota Release Date and Price
As we saw, 2020 Dodge Dakota is officially not planned for the next year, but there are high chances that the manufacturer surprises us with this version of the famous model. In case that you forgot, the 2011 model had the price of $21,000 for the base model. If the manufacturer remains the same price for this model, it could be highly competitive in the class. However, even without the planned price, the model has many advances that it could beat the competition and be on the top in the class. We should wait for the end of the next year for the official news and information.
