Dakota Engine Block Specs
Anything built prior to 1987 included one or more options for performance. When the allure of the 2.5 liter assemblies wore off, Chrysler commissioned its engineers to come up with a V6 build that could finally take the place of the K platform. Leading up into the early 1990s, the 3.9 liter was selected as the base engine. Some of these vehicles had a manual transmission or an automatic.
The 5.2 liter Magnum is a superior build. As the biggest V8, this edition was also promoted in the Ram and some SUV vehicles. The displacement was high enough to convince skeptical buyers that payload was higher than competitor offerings. By the time the Jeep series was increasing in sales, Dakota trucks were using the 4.7 V8.
Horsepower, according to SAE specs, was not consistent from year to year. While the early units were about 125 horsepower, many were built to offer the 175 hp or up to 225 hp for the Magnum motors and 3.7 liter V6. This variance did not deteriorate the confidence consumers had in the different assemblies.
