Is ugly as SIN.
It fell out of the ugly tree and hit every branch on the way down...twice.
I thought the old one was ugly..with the massive jawbone of a bumper it had.
This one is just boxier..front and back..less aerodynamics..and the hood and front grill is all sticking out of the vehicle all weirdlike.
Plus, the only way to get the 6spd manual is to stick with the poopy V6. Only the V6 and the V8 now. Not like the 07 where you had 2 V8 options (the normal one with a 6spd manual and the H.O. one with the 5spd auto). Now you just get a V8(doesn't say on the Build My Own what power it is) with a 5spd auto.

They also no longer have the dark blue for the dakota..only a bright(ugly) blue is offered..for $225 or so more.
Hell, when you look at it just looks like a smaller F-150 in its shape.

Yeah, the new Dakota design is... different I'll give it that.
Not the worst thing I've ever seen, but it's a definite "bleh".
I agree about the Toyota trucks... really stupid looking.
Especially the interiors, they're horrid!

Ford has a way of making a bland shape look decent.
I've never minded Ford's styling.
