The original Dakota was released in 1987, when the model began production and its long career.

It managed to change often and went with the times as you can see by viewing the old three generations of models. Finally the car had been unfortunately discontinued in 2011 when the last model was produced and sold as the low sales ratings finally brought to its downfall.
