"We are excited to expand our product offering with this new pickup, and at the same time, leverage our alliance with Daimler Chrysler to provide even greater value for our customers," said Finbarr O’Neill, Co-chairman and CEO of MMNA.

The Mitsubishi Sport Truck Concept will feature all wheel drive powered by a 4.7-liter V8 engine and five-speed automatic transmission. The truck is 210 inches long, 80 inches wide and 71 inches high. It has a 135-inch wheelbase and 22-inch wheels.

The truck will showcase a design signature reflective of the individual brand character. Mitsubishi Motors Design Studio in Cypress, Calif., and the Chrysler Design Studio in Auburn Hills, Mich., are each responsible for their unique models. Additional product, production and sales details will be announced later.

The project is one of many alliance projects between DaimlerChrysler AG and Mitsubishi Motors in the areas of research, development, procurement, production, marketing and sales.

Mitsubishi Motors has a rich heritage in the pickup segment. In 2002, the company sold worldwide more than 90,000 units of its L200 Strada pickup.

The 2006 Mitsubishi Raider is an all-new midsize pickup truck, although "all new" in this case must be qualified because it uses the chassis and engine of the Dodge Dakota and comes off the Dakota assembly line in Detroit. However, its sheet metal is totally unlike the Dakota’s, and its interior is a unique design as well.
