http://news.pickuptrucks.com/2010/11...am-trucks.html

im torn on the new dakota replacement as it may be a unibody design akin to the avalanche or ridgeline, not really a true truck as far as i am concerned, but will have to see it first to pass judgement

thanks for posting that link. was curious to see what they thought about calling it

I was curious to see what they would call it as well, but should be interesting where the Dak goes from here.

If it doesn't have a full frame and I can't haul my 4 wheeler in it, then it's not a truck!

I think this is probably an attempt to boost Dakota sales by piggybacking on the Rams recent success. While I have no problem with making us all one big happy family, I've seen rebranding efforts go dissasterously wrong with other products. If you change the name you run the risk of confusing consumers, or alienating your current core.

i know what you mean! but ive had others on another site give me crap for asking about how much my R/T will tow. they say its not meant for that, and i agree, but still, dont give me crap for asking.

guess the only thing i will haul in my R/T will be A$$

I think/hope when they say lifestyle truck they just mean a less capable truck not some ridgeline type thing. Id like to see a modern version of the first gen Dakotas, much like a (Dodge) Ram version of the a Ranger. Give it the pentastar v6 and an r/t w/ a 4.7ho or HEMI a 6 or 7ft bed. and around 20mpgs and have it start under 19k. Sound totally doable and we would steal the whole market seeing that the tacoma is huge the colorado/canyon is a pos the Ranger is gone soon and outdated the frontier is ugly and old.
