The 2016 Dodge Dakota is rumored to come on the market as a redesigned and a modern looking vehicle. This pickup truck appeared for the first time on the market in 1987. In order to increase sales of this model in the American market, the new model comes refreshed during the year 2016. The previous model was the reason for the low status in the category of the pickup trucks on the American market and poor sale results. This time the company will invest extra efforts to meet the expectations of the buyers.
Exterior and Interior Design
The new Dodge Dakota 2016 will have a redesigned exterior look that will transform it into a more modern, attractive and aggressive truck. It will be built of lighter materials and with a satisfactory offer of equipment in the interior. The interior will go in line with modern requirements. It will be changed in both, the aesthetic and functional terms. Seats are going to be covered with modern and more durable materials that will give the inside of the car a nicer look and provide greater comfort. The space inside the truck will be spacious enough to give the passengers the feeling of comfort. Equipment will be upgraded and it will include new features like: audio player, cruise control, air conditioning, LCD display, navigation system, functional steering wheel, windshield defrosters, ABS and so on.
The truck will look more modern and more powerful compared to the older models and it should be slightly longer. Weight will also be slightly increased, but despite that, the people from the company say that the fuel consumption will be improved. The front of the 2016 Dodge Dakota will have a more streamlined headlights and a redesigned grille. Both bumpers will be the same color as the body.
