General

The Mitsubishi Raider is a car built on the Dodge Dakota base. This design was the result of a DaimlerChrysler and Mitsubishi joint-venture that became a way before the Raider went into production. The Mitsubishi Raider does have a limited lineup that can be compared to the Dodge Dakota. The Extended Cab with a 6-foot, 4-inch cargo bed comes only in 4×2, while the Double Cab with a 5-foot, 3-inch bed is available in 4×2 and 4×4 configurations. Raider doesn’t get the Dodge’s 4.7-liter V-8 litre powerful engine, and there’s only single trim level.

Exterior

Mitsubishi moved away from its base concept of an angry street fighter when it brought the Raider to production. The Raider still features its distinctive marks, which with you can separate it from the Dakota, as well as many other trucks in the pickup trucks compact market. The Raider’s exterior look is improved with more curves and rounded corners than the Dodge Dakota. There are a fantastically designed flared wheel arches and a thick lower bumper.
