    Why am I not surprised. I have said for a while that the cost of a car is not in the raw materials (steel, glass, plastic) but in the assembly and electronic features demanded by the current market. Therefore it costs almost as much to make a midsize truck as a fullsize.

    I strongly believe the Dakota would still be around today if they didn't let a retarded brain donor redesign it in 2004. Every Dakota before that was beautiful and desirable. But hey, the industry is about profits, not what I think is cool.

    Instead of dropping that diesel motor in the Jeep liberty and Cherokee, they should have found a way to make it compatible in the Dakota. A 3.0liter 6 cylinder diesel motor in a small pickup would move up their midsize truck sales and wouldn't infringe on the Cummins much larger 6 in the Ram. I would jump to buy something of the like.
