The Dodge Dakota R/T was truly a unique truck. Considered a true street/sport truck, it combined the largest and most powerful engine in its class, a heavy-duty transmission, and many other desirable sport and performance upgrades not offered on its lesser work-a-day brethren. With its lowered suspension, special cast-aluminum wheels, and monochromatic color scheme, it also looked bad ass. Of the 154,479 Dakotas sold in 2001, just 1,671 R/T club cabs were produced, making it quite rare.
This one-owner 2001 Dakota R/T has just 51,900 miles. Finished in Flame Red Cleat Coat, its original finish has a beautiful luster. Styling cues unique to the R/T include special 17” cast aluminum wheels, beefier tires, fog lamps, and black-letter “Dakota 5.9 R/T” badging on its doors and tailgate. A special grille, fiberglass tonneau cover, and rear valance housing its dual exhaust tips are other features that contribute to this truck’s sporty look. Tinted windows and sporty fender flares complete the package.
If the exterior of this Dakota impresses you, the interior will not disappoint. With its fold-down center arm rest, its comfortable Dark Slate Gray bucket seats—complete with the “R/T” logo handsomely embroidered on its headrests in Red—will have you riding in comfort. The rear seating area also includes convenient under-seat storage areas. Its full complement of white-faced gauges will keep you fully informed about what’s going on under the hood. Other standard and optional comfort and convenience features include the following:
All power options work as they should, including the ice-cold air conditioning.
Under the hood you will find a powerful Magnum 5.9 liter V-8 engine mated to a 4-speed automatic transmission which generates an impressive 250 horsepower and 345 pound-feet of torque. This powertrain will launch you to 60 MPH in just 6.9 seconds. R/T and optional Heavy Duty Service Group performance upgrades include the following:
Having just 51,900 original miles, this well-maintained truck runs and drives as well as it looks. It has never been driven in winter, and has been kept in heated storage for eight months each year since being purchased by the original owner.
If an extremely rare sport truck that has been meticulously cared for is what you desire, this one-owner Dakota R/T is the one for you!
