How many Dodge Dakota R/T cars were made?
I really want to buy a vintage Dodge truck. I heard the Dodge Dakota R/T was cool. How many of these trucks were made?

We like your style! The Dodge Dakota R/T is known as “the last ‘compact’ muscle truck.” Only 16,496 Dodge Dakota R/T trucks were made.
Here’s more on the Dodge Dakota R/T:
- Known by enthusiasts as “Mighty Dak,” the truck was produced from 1998 to 2003.
- It had an exclusive 5.9 L V8 engine that cranked out 250 hp and 345 lb-ft of torque.
- It reached 60 mph in seven seconds, which was impressive for its time.
- It was a performance-oriented truck in a midsize package, which is uncommon today.
Though a fun little whip, the Dodge Dakota R/T never really caught on and only lasted six years. Sales peaked around 2000 when 4,000 models were sold.
