Despite going on sale last September with a fresh design based on Dodge Dakota mechanicals, the Mitsubishi Raider pickup sold just 492 units in the month of February. In response Mitsu has asked the Chrysler Group to suspend production of the pickup at Chrysler’s Warren, MI plant where its assembled alongside the Dakota.

Mitsubishi dealers are begging the mother ship for more incentives to help unload the truck’s 208-day supply even though the Raider’s flagging February sales were posted amidst $3,000 in incentives. If Raider sales don’t being to rise it could be cancelled after only one year on sale.

The Dodge Dakota meanwhile sold 6,260 units in February with a slightly higher base price and less incentives.
