Original Dakota Parts Help Keep an Icon Running

Which Dodge vehicle was nominated for the North American Truck of the Year award in 2000? The answer is the Dodge Dakota. Getting to know the history of this ride and the efficiency of various Dakota parts will help answer questions regarding why this vehicle was nominated for the aforementioned prestigious award.

A mid-size pickup truck, the Dakota was first introduced in 1987. It was marketed under Chrysler LLC’s Dodge brand, which was known for sturdy, hard-wearing cars. The Dakota was and still is a popular truck for working men, especially those involved in small-scale delivery. Among its most distinguishing features are the body-on-frame construction and leaf spring/live axle rear end. A pioneer among trucks, it is famous for introducing rack-and-pinion steering to work trucks.

In the Sioux Indian language, the name Dakota means ‘friend’ or ‘ally.’ And truly, the Dakota, when maintained with original Dakota parts, has served a lot of people well through all of its three releases. The 1987-1996 model — the first design — was the first mid-sized pickup to integrate low fuel usage with cargo handling that was competitive with large trucks. The 1997-2004 model was a second generation model which had most of the nimble features of the first model, but included some new updates. It was also the final hurrah for the tired four-cylinder engine. The third and latest model, first released in 2005, featured a redesigned package optimized for cost- and time-effectiveness and included new suspension and rack-and-pinion systems.

Any of these three models can serve a man (or woman) well. Updating or revamping the first, second and third-generation models can help these trucks achieve a good-as-new working condition, as long as genuine Dakota parts are used.
