What if... the new Dakotas started coming out with the Hemi engines? I mean, they're dropping them into everything else... why not have a Hemi 'Kota?

If they did... would you have thought about one of those instead of a fullsize?

I voted no way because i got kids and i need all the room i can get but if it werent for the kids then i would in a heart beat. i was about to get one before i got the hemi, but i think the dakota is the best of both worlds not to small not to big.

Nope, not big enough and it would still look like a new Dakota :tdwn:

Nope, not even if it came with two Hemi's. Besides, judging by the miles I put on, they can't put a Hemi in a Dakota because Dakotas are extinct.

I need a full size truck more than I actually need power. I like to deer hunt and to put my tree stand and my friends stand in the same truck is a must. I know that I could fit them in a smaller truck but I like to have some extra room. I haul 4x8 plywood sometimes and need the full size.

Availability of a Hemi engine would not sway my decision one way or another. I considered a four-door Dakota Sport 4x4 as an alternative to the truck I have now, along with a Durango SXT 4x4, and in the end the truck I have won out. My Ram has a 360, the Dakota and Durango at the time had 4.7's. I never really thought about that though when I was making my decision.

My next vehicle will be a car. And it will most likely have a Hemi engine. But the Hemi in the trucks versus what I have now isnt so much better that it would change my mind if I were buying another truck.

I voted no because I have 2 kids to lug around, I like big trucks and to be honest I dont like the new look of the dakotas.

Yea, the look of them is what would keep me away... hell, that IS what kept me from getting a Dakota now. But if it had been the last body style... then I'd think.

Bubba, they look really good with a small lift and some bigger tires. I have seen several now in my area like that, one black one I keep trying to catch parked somewhere so I can put a DT flyer on his windshield. The new design has grown on me!

I like my big twuck....

I traded my '97 3.9 Dak Sport CC for the Ram I have now. I was so impressed with the Dak (my first DC purchase), the Ram just seemed a logical choice. Bigger, more gid-gadgets, and ...a V8!

Even growing up in a GM family, I've decided I'll always have a full-size Dodge truck (although I may just be restoring old 3rd Gen Rams if the future ones are any uglier than the '06's, lol). I've gotten more attached to my Ram than I have to any of my cars or trucks in quite a few years.
