Expert Quotes:

“The Mitsubishi Raider lineup has been downsized for 2008”

“Raider comes in a single LS trim level”

“a fully boxed, hydroformed and roll-formed steel frame”

“The V8 engine option is dropped from the simplified model line”
Kelley Blue Book

A pretty basic roster of standard and optional features marks the pretty basic 2008 Mitsubishi Raider.

“The Mitsubishi Raider lineup has been downsized for 2008. The Durocross and SE trim levels have been dropped, and the 4.7-liter V8 is no longer available,” explains Edmunds about the Mitsubishi Raider’s new strategy for the 2008 model year. There is just one model, LS, and three trim levels: one Extended Cab model and two Double Cab models. Utilitarian Extended Cabs, starting at just over $20,000, feature a six-speed manual transmission, 16-inch steel wheels, 40/20/40-split cloth bench seat, air conditioning, and an AM/FM/CD/MP3 player with four speakers. The Double Cab gets a four-speed automatic transmission; power mirrors, locks, and windows; 60/40-split rear fold-down seatbacks; a tilt steering wheel; cruise control; fog lamps; and a sliding rear window. The third model is the Double Cab four-wheel drive, in which another $3,000 is added to the Double Cab’s bottom line of around $26,000.

“Options are largely grouped into packages,” explains Edmunds. Opting for the Extended Cab's Power and Convenience Package nets most of the Double Cab's additional features. The Exterior Appearance Package, available on Double Cabs, adds a sliding rear window, special wheels, and interior trim. The Extra Value Package comes with a bed liner, side rails, and mud guards. Some of these options can be added individually. makes note of a few advanced technology features, including “hands-free Bluetooth cell-phone communications system and Sirius satellite radio.” They also state “Mitsubishi will pay the satellite radio subscription for the first six months, allowing customers to sample the service before committing for a longer term.”

Edmunds points out that “Mitsubishi provides a five-year/60,000-mile bumper-to-bumper warranty, which trumps Dodge's three-year/36,000-mile comprehensive coverage but not its lifetime powertrain warranty.”

How does the
TCC Rating work?
The TCC Rating is a clear numeric rating value based on a 10-point scale that reflects the overall opinion of our automotive experts on any vehicle and rolls up ratings we give each vehicle across sub-categories you care about like performance, safety, styling and more.

Our rating also has simple color-coded “Stop” (red), “Caution” (orange),
or “Go” (green) messages along with the numerical score so you can easily understand where we stand at a glance.

Our automotive experts then also collect and show you what other websites say about these different aspects of any vehicle. We do this leg work for you to simplify your research process.
