Everything indicates that the 2017 model year will be pretty exciting, especially for truck lovers. Many companies work hard to launch new models and refresh the current ones, and Dodge is one of them. Namely, Dodge will soon launch a revamped 2017 Dodge Dakota. Three generations of this model have been launched so far, and the fourth one is on the horizon. With the last generation of the vehicle, the company hasn’t recorded many sales, and therefore they decided for refreshment. The Dodge Dakota plays a significant role in the mid-size pickup truck segment. Let’s check what it brings to the table this model year.

The Chrysler Group recently announced that the new generation of the Dodge Dakota will be based on a brand-new unibody platform. Therefore, we expect to see many novelties for the exterior. Of course, many things will be changed inside of the cabin and performance, but we are particularly interested in exterior changes, for now. The 2017 Dodge Dakota will be longer than its predecessor. Most of the recently released vehicles have lost in weight, but it is not the case with the Dodge Dakota 2017.

The newcomer will sport many new features including new grille and headlights that make it more aggressive. Now when you know that the 2017 Dodge Dakota will gain some weight, it will be larger, and it will get new features for better look, let’s take a closer look at its cabin and see what has been hidden inside of it.
