Ram Dakota Nears Debut, Offering Flexibility For Buyers

Written By, Brad R

Ram is working on a slew of new vehicle offerings, including an electric Ram pickup truck. The peak of Ram pickups is sure to arrive with this new entry that will rival the Ford Lighting EV truck set to debut not long after the Ram 1500 EV arrives. There will be more offerings to enjoy, but one key vehicle we are keeping an eye on is the Ram Dakota, a compact pickup, that will offer the most bang-for-buck Ram driving experience ever offered. The 2024 Ram Dakota will offer better fuel efficiency and improved quality for those who opt for the small truck. Ram has won plenty of awards and will only offer a new entry if the ride is exceptional.

How the Dakota Last Performed

The Ram brand last made the Dakota back in 2011. The efforts to add a new smaller version outside of the all-new Ram 1500 and Ram 1500 Classic was a spot that the brand knew they needed to continue to grow their base. There's an unwavering popularity with the pickup community buying trucks here in the United States. Pickups are far and away the most sought after vehicle choice in America and the Ram brand is wise to return to an option that served the brand reasonably well for years throughout a lengthy production run from 1986 through 2011, albeit with some production changes as the ownership group changed several times during that spell.

Three generations of the Dakota were made before the end came in 2011, now over a decade later we will see the fourth-generation arrive with new trims, new engine options, and a slew of perks that will reward drivers opting for the smaller Ram choice. The peak for the Dakota was at the start of the century as the vehicle sold over 177,394 vehicles in 2000 alone. The Ram brand has released a version of the Dakota found in some Middle Eastern countries as the Ram 1200. The twenty-five year run was an accomplishment, but if all goes well, we will be seeing and experiencing a lengthy new run all its own.
