New V6 for Dakota!

From : jason purcell

Q: at last the 3.9 is history. in this months edition of car & driver under the new 2004 review capsules they tell us that the 3.7l v 6 will finally make its way to dakota. out with the old in with the new. 50 extra horsepower! 215 only 20 less than the 4.7l v8 - which somehow doesont seem right only 20 hp difference but at least its there. this doesnt help or mean much to the guy earlier in the week bitching about his new dodge with the no powerv6 with the obvious exception of a trade-in incentive... no yes or no about whether or not the hemi is coming to dakota wouldnt that be a sweet rt then... j. .
