The Dodge D300 was a light pickup truck produced as part of the D-Series of pickups. The vehicle was available in a range of cab styles and featured independent front suspension and three speed automatic transmission. The vehicle used galvanised steel to minimize rust and corrosion. Slant-6 and V8 engines were available, and the D300 also added power assisted disc brakes and cruise control to its list of features. 1978 saw the introduction of diesel engines.
The servicing schedule includes six-monthly tire rotation and engine oil changes, annual brake and exhaust inspection, and annual transfer case fluid changes.
