The 2008 Mitsubishi Raider is closely related to the Dodge Dakota pickup but has unique sheetmetal and was styled independently by Mitsubishi's design center in California. Compared to most pickup designs, the Raider is said by Mitsubishi to have an "urban edge," and the front treatment is especially reminiscent of other vehicles in the Mitsubishi line.
The Raider has a fully boxed frame that's hydro-formed and roll-formed for strength, and the unequal-length A-arm front suspension and leaf-spring rear suspension are configured to provide good on-road handling without compromising hauling ability. The Raider also comes with front and rear stabilizer bars, which help improve handling.
The Raider is offered in LS trim and comes in two body styles--extended cab and double cab. A 3.7L V6 engine, making 210 horsepower and 235 lb-ft of torque, is standard on all Raider models. The base transmission is a manual six-speed with overdrive, while a four-speed automatic with overdrive is optional. Extended cab models are available in 2WD only, while the double cab is offered with optional 4WD.
The extended cab model comes with a 6.4-foot bed, rear access doors, and seating for three in front and two in back. Double cab models come with a 5.3-foot bed, four full-size doors, and room for up to six inside.
All Raider LS models include air conditioning, cloth upholstery, a 12-volt power jack, and a CD stereo with MP3 capability and digital media connectivity. Raider LS Double Cab models add the Power and Convenience package as standard, which features tilt steering, cruise control, power windows, locks, and mirrors, fog lamps, sliding rear glass, and keyless entry. The package is optional on the Extended Cab LS. Several standalone options are available and include goodies like bed liners and extenders, bed rail protectors, side steps, and premium paint.
All 2008 Mitsubishi Raiders come with standard safety equipment, including front dual-stage air bags and four-wheel anti-lock brakes.
Maneuverability compared to full-size trucks; bold styling; modest V6 power; transferable five-year/60,000 mile bumper-to-bumper warranty.
For 2008, Mitsubishi's durable Raider pickup range has been further narrowed to better target the truck to consumers. The DuroCross model has been discontinued, as has the SE. The optional 235-horsepower V8 has also been dropped, leaving the 3.7L V6 as the sole powerplant. LS-level trucks in either one extended cab style or two double cab styles are the only available models in the lineup. All Raiders receive a revised dashboard.
The 2008 Mitsubishi Raider is based on the popular Dodge Dakota. As such, it rides on a capable chassis, but features a distinctive, edgy look all its own in keeping with the current Mitsubishi model line. When introduced in 2006, the Raider was ranked Best in Class in AutoPacific's Vehicle Satisfaction study. With the V6, the Raider can haul between 2,950 pounds and 4,150 pounds, depending on drivetrain.
