Personally, if the name is not completely repulsive, I buy a truck based on looks and performance. I don't think the name changes they are proposing are that radical.
i agree 100% actually i think the front of the new kota's look pretty mean. but the body lines are so damn ugly.
i think they should just keep the name dakota but make its own body style (way better than what they are now and more advanced than the late 90's models) but stay within the realms of a truck. no durango styling and especially NO RIDGELINE styling. disgusting
and changing 1500 to 150 and etc. would be too nostalgic and i think they would drive clients away from their trucks
