Mitsubishi's dramatically styled Raider mid-size pickup truck was introduced for 2006 and earned the Best in Class Vehicle Satisfaction Award (VSA) for compact pickups from the renowned AutoPacific, Inc. industry consulting group. The model line is streamlined for 2007, offering one extended-cab model and three Double Cab models, including the only import-brand midsize pickup with a V-8 engine.. The emphasis on four-door Double Cab models reflects Raider's appeal as a multi-capable SUV alternative.
Raider's bold styling shares signature cues from the Mitsubishi family of vehicles and underscores the truck's active, brawny attitude and purposeful stance. Three Raider models for 2007 are available in the well equipped LS trim line: Extended Cab 2WD; Double Cab 2WD and Double Cab 4WD. The Raider Double Cab 2WD Special Edition is exclusively powered by a 235-hp 4.7-liter SOHC V-8 teamed to a five-speed automatic transmission. All Raider models are built on the same long 131.3-inch wheelbase. The Extended Cab model has a 6.4-foot bed, and Double Cab models come with a 5.3-foot bed.
With more than 100 cubic feet of interior space, including a generous 36.4 inches of rear leg room, Raider Double Cab models provide comfort and room for up to six people. The Extended Cab model, with seating for two in the rear, provides 32.1 inches of rear leg room.
The Raider V-6 is a proven 3.7-liter SOHC unit producing 210 hp 3and 235 lb.-ft. of peak torque. The engine is teamed to a standard six-speed manual transmission in the LS Extended Cab 2WD model, and a four-speed automatic transmission in all others.
All Raider Double Cab models feature satin interior finishes for 2007. Also new, a Power and Convenience Package is standard for LS Double Cab and optional for LS Extended Cab models and includes a SIRIUS® Satellite Radio package with six-month pre-paid service.
Raider is built on a fully boxed, hydro-formed and roll-formed steel frame. The frame's inherent strength, in combination with front coil-over independent suspension and power rack and pinion steering, gives Raider a comfortable ride and capable handling.
The Raider offers the best bumper-to-bumper new vehicle limited warranty of any pickup truck on the market -- 5-years/60,000 miles.
