The Dodge Dakota was a mid-sized pickup truck that was launched in 1987. Under the hood lay a selection of engines ranging from a 2.2-liter four-cylinder up to a 5.2-liter V8. The Dakota was two-wheel drive as standard, although buyers could have four-wheel drive if they went for the 3.9-liter V6 model. A Club Cab model appeared in 1990 with the ability to carry six people. The following year a facelift comprised a new hood and grille, which allowed Dodge to fit a 170hp 5.2-liter V8 engine. Further tweaks over subsequent years concerned the headlights and the fitment of extra safety equipment. The first-generation Dodge Dakota was deleted in 1996. Haynes has an extensive range of Dodge repair manuals and online maintenance procedures to suit professional mechanics and DIY car enthusiasts.
