2008 Mitsubishi Raider review: Our expert's take

Vehicle Overview
The Raider comes in extended cab and Double Cab body styles and can have either rear- or four-wheel drive. For 2008, the number of Raider trims has been slimmed down; now buyers can choose between one extended cab model and two Double Cab models. All Raiders are powered by a 210-horsepower, 3.7-liter V-6.

Mitsubishi promotes the Raider’s “aggressive exterior,” which was designed in California. A thin upper grille and thick lower bumper up front help produce a look that’s reminiscent of the company’s other models. Wheel arches are flared.

The Raider has a fully boxed, hydroformed and roll-formed steel frame. Extended cab trucks have rear access doors, while Double Cab pickups get four conventional doors. Each body style is 218.5 inches long and uses a 131.3-inch wheelbase. Cargo beds measure 6.5 feet long on extended cab models and 5.25 feet on Double Cab trucks.

All models have rack-and-pinion steering, a heavy-duty suspension, and front and rear stabilizer bars. All models have 16-inch wheels, with extended cab models getting steel wheels with wheel covers and both Double Cab models getting aluminum wheels.

Standard equipment on the LS extended cab includes a 40/20/40-split front bench seat, air conditioning, a tachometer, variable intermittent wipers, a CD player with four speakers, and front and rear cupholders.

LS Double Cab models, available in either two- or four-wheel drive, add power side windows, keyless entry, power front windows, power locks, a tilt steering wheel and cruise control.

Under the Hood
The V-6 develops 235 pounds-feet of torque and works with a six-speed manual gearbox or a four-speed automatic transmission.

Rear-wheel antilock brakes are standard. Previously available side curtain airbags were eliminated for 2007.
