Straightline's got a picture of what they're claiming is the new Dodge Dakota, refreshed for the 2008 model year. Although the Dakota no longer shares a platform with the Durango, the Ram-brand's full-size SUV, you can definitely see where it's taking styling cues from another Dodge product, the Nitro. Yup, it's got that same grille that only a mother could love — a blind mother that is. But at least, according to Straightline, you'll be able to drive blind ol' mom around with a bit more power as they're claiming the mid-size will receive an upgrade to the new 4.0-liter V6 as the base engine configuration — plus some power boosts for those with the bank to step into a truck with V8 power.

blind mother? I wouldn't mind a Nitro with a truck bed, which is what the new Dakota sounds like
