The chassis of the 2016 Dodge Dakota will be equipped with four large stylish as well as functional active doors with an enormous preview; the back doors slide to the back when opened and they can be remotely controlled. On the front end, the truck will feature newly designed chic LED headlights with stylish c-shaped daytime running lights and a huge chrome grille. The rear and front bumpers will be fitted with beautiful décor. The cargo deck will feature an additional sliding loading mechanism which will help you load your merchandise more easily even right from the ground up.
