When passengers take precedence over payload, go for a Double Cab Raider. This one is the most basic of fully four-doored Raiders, as it is two-wheel-drive.
The full-sized rear doors on this six-passenger pickup provide easy and convenient entry and exit for backseat passengers or stowed stuff. Those passengers will appreciate the added legroom and cab space in general, but the bed length decreases by about 13 inches compared to the Extended Cab LS. This also results in a lessened payload capacity (1690 vs. 1590).
No Double Cab Raider comes with a manual transmission; you get a 4-speed automatic with overdrive. It's mated to a 3.7-liter SOHC V6 that produces 210 horsepowers and 235 lb-ft of torque; gas mileage is rated at 16 mpg city and 22 highway.
The 60/40-split rear seat features dual headrests and underseat storage (the seat cushions fold up for access). The full-sized doors come with privacy glass, as does the sliding rear cab window.
You can load your LS Double Cab 2WD by adding options packages. The ones offered for this trim are the Extra Value Package (cargo bed liner and rail protector, mud guards, chrome exhaust tip, and scuff plate), the Cargo Bed Gear Package (cargo bed liner and rail protectors, tailgate cover, cargo bed extender, wheel locks), and the Appearance Package (sliding rear window, 16-inch alloy wheels, and satin-finish interior accents).
Plenty of safety measures are in place, including the Safety: Supplemental Restraint System (dual advanced front airbags with two-stage inflators and passenger-side occupant sensor), height-adjustable front seat belts, LATCH system, rear-wheel ABS, front and rear crumple zones, and tubular steel side-guard beams.
Thanks to a fully-boxed steel frame the Raider has a stiffer chassis that makes it both safe and capable. Front and rear deformation zones and energy-absorbing octagonal front frame-rail tips enhance the truck's safety factor. An independent front suspension and rack-and-pinion make it handle well and ride smoothly enough.
