What Is The Weight Of A 2005 – 2011 Dodge Dakota? (Answered)

When you own a Dodge Dakota, there will most likely also be moments where you need to know how much the car weighs. We went through all the owners’ manuals of this specific car and calculated the average weight for each model year and engine type to find this out. In the next subheading, we’ve outlined the base weight according to Dodge. For each model, we went through the old information Dodge still has available. Please see the table below for the definite answers.

Base Weight Per Year From 2005 – 2011

Before you read this table, it’s good to know how you can best read it. We’ve outlined the model year in the left column starting from 2011 and slowly working our way down to 2005. In the column next to it, you will find the engine type (3.7 V6 or 4.7 V8) and the transmission (manual or automatic).

Once you’ve defined these factors for the car you’re looking for, you’ll find the base weight in pounds. The base weight is the empty weight of the car without passengers, fuel, or baggage. We’ve also added specific models (e.g., cab models, 2WD/4WD, etc.).

Please note that, for the 2005 model, Dodge wasn’t able to provide the needed information. Therefore we found the rest of the information online. Since this was limited, we had to combine the engine types.

How Much Does The Dodge Dakota Weigh Compared To It’s Competitors?

Finally, we think it’s interesting to compare the weight of the Dodge Dakota with its main competition. Since the Dakota was last produced in 2011, we took this model and compared it to four other well-known trucks produced in 2011.

What we found is that the Dodge Dakota certainly is a heavyweight. Its minimum curb weight of 4,211 pounds stands almost 1,000 pounds above the four main competitors. The Toyota Tacoma is the lightest of the bunch, with a curb weight of 3,250 pounds.

On the top end of the spectrum, we see the same thing. The Dakota weighs a maximum of 4,834 pounds which is still almost 150 pounds heavier than the runner-up (the Nissan Frontier).
