Which would you get?
SVT F-150 Lightning
Dakota Club Cab R/T
I am a GM guy...but I have to say the SVT
Yeah, the SVT looks pretty sweet. So does that ssr thingy, whatever it is, I bet it's gonna be expensive.
Without a doubt I'd get the SVT. Just too bad they don't make it in extended cab yet.
Have to pick the SVT. I think it would be alot easier for me to choose if the SSR was dropped and the Sy/Ty was the GM choice
SSR does have a V8
but SVT all the way,
I love the way Dakota's look, but they are hella slow
Personally the SVT. I still fail to see the logic by GM to develop SSR instead of revising and ironing out the bugs on the F-body platform.
Yeah I guess they are slow compaired to the Lightning...I mean c'mon the Lightning is supercharged from the factory
L's are $35k new
Dakota R/T's are around $25k new
There is a $10k difference......get an R/T and put a 408 stroker motor in it and add either N20 or a supercharger and your right there with the Lightning with money to spare
Personally you should wait for the Dakota with the Hemi to be released in the next few years
I just went to the Dodge site and built a Dakota R/T regular cab fully loaded and it came out $25,900. Thats just the MSRP. You'd also need to figure in delivery charge and dealer markup.
Even when they put a Hemi in it I'll take the Lightning, I don't care for the looks of the Dakota.
I wonder how much that Chevy Silverado SS will be. 6 liter engine, all wheel drive, mmmmm....
I payed $21k for my regular cab R/T with pretty much every option available.
How long have they been promising to build that now.......10+ years? I'll believe it when I see it.
On the Dakota I was just checking price on a new 2003 at the manufacturers website. This does not account for rebates or any other various deals or trade ins. Did you buy it straight up for $21K? What year was it? Was it brand new? Just asking, not trying to start anything.
Brand new in November 1998 (it's a 1999 Dakota R/T regular) right off the lot. Only one they had. Full power windows/mirrors, A/C, CD Player and all the other stuff.
Only thing it doesn't have is it he overhead computer that tells you the temp and what direction your going.
Didn't trade anything in on it....put $6k down on it.
Well that explains why you only payed $21K since it was 4 years ago. I bought my F150 that same year, but it was a year old and used.
can i jsut get a chevy extend cab and add a blower and some heads and still ahve money to spare on a svt and then i wouldnt have to drive a ford
I'm estimating at least $4000 more than how much a GMC Sierra Denali Quadsteer is right now, seeing the difference is more or less the engine itself.
