The 2009 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.
