Dodge Announces Pricing for 1998 Dakota R/T

    AUBURN HILLS, Mich., Jan. 7 -- Dodge Division of Chrysler
Corporation today released pricing for the 1998 Dodge Dakota R/T
compact pickup.  The Dakota R/T Regular Cab will be priced at $19,850, while
the Dakota R/T Club Cab will be $22,060.  Both prices include destination.
    The Dakota R/T is a limited edition "street truck" fashioned off of the
already-popular Dakota pickup.  The vehicle features a 250-horsepower
5.9-liter Magnum V-8 engine, oversized 17-inch wheels, lowered suspension,
performance-tuned dual exhaust and many other performance enhancements.
Dakota R/T will be offered in two-wheel drive configuration only.
    "We're really excited to be able to do a vehicle like the Dakota R/T,"
said Dodge General Manager Ray Fisher.  "Sure, it's a bit of a departure from
the norm for trucks, but that's what Dodge is all about."
    Dakota R/T will be built alongside the rest of the Dakota family at
Chrysler's Dodge City Assembly Plant in Warren, Michigan.  The vehicles will
begin arriving in Dodge dealerships in early Spring of 1998.
