It’s not surprising that the Dakota Sport V8 grabs the eye as dramatically as it tackles the terrain.
The professionals at Chrysler Design Jeep and truck Studios set out to prove that off roading’s added excitement doesn’t require a truck with that familiar ‘add-on’ look. Integrating the latest off-road features into one aerodynamically refined shape, the Dakota Sport V-8 is their striking response to that challenge.
Poised beneath a fully integrated brush guard, a front air dam seems to pull the Sport V-8 down into its raked wind defying stance. Nestled below a contour hugging aero light bar are high intensity halogen driving lamps.
Topped by a fixed spoiler, a honey combed “baja” tailgate improves airflow and punctuates the Sport V-8′s dramatic styling.
Crouching on its unique cast aluminum wheels and Dakota tread tires, the Dakota Sport V-8 promises to deliver 4X4 excitement on road and off.
To keep and even surpass this promise, the Sport V-8 couples its advanced aerodynamics with a 5.2 liter, electronically fuel injected V-8 that delivers 170 horses at 4000 RPM, and 260 pound feet of torque at 2000 RPM.
Bringing a new dimension to the phrase “the more the merrier,” the Sport V-8 showcases a feature that will soon expand the fun and excitement in Dakota territory: the extended cab. Four tube frame bucket seats provide ergonomically enhanced comfort front and rear, in a custom interior designed to combine good times and good looks
