The 2011 Mitsubishi Endeavor is a workhorse crossover-type midsize sport utility vehicle that features all of the roominess, comfort and versatility of an SUV, but with a much more car-like driving demeanor.
The 2011 Endeavor is available in two trims: a well-appointed LS and the luxuriously-laden SE version. Both are powered by a 3.8-liter V-6 engine that delivers 225 horsepower and an impressive 255 lb.-ft. of torque.
A 4-speed automatic transmission that features Mitsubishi’s Sportronic shifting technology allows the driver to manually control gear shifting when desired, ideal when towing a trailer up a grade or when an enthusiast driver meets a winding ribbon of pavement.
The Endeavor LS features hands-free Bluetooth system, cruise control with steering wheel-mounted switches, a 140-watt AM/FM/CD audio system with MP3 playback capability and power windows, mirrors and door locks.
The Endeavor SE includes leather seating surfaces, heated front seats and side mirrors, automatic climate control, 18-inch alloy wheels and a robust 360-watt Rockford-Fosgate Acoustic Design Premium Audio system with 6-disc in-dash CD changer and steering wheel-mounted audio controls. The Navigation & Sunroof Package is now standard on SE models and adds a DVD-based touch-screen navigation system, rear view back-up camera, power sunroof and a cargo cover.
Thanks to a ride height of 8.3 inches and a full-time all-wheel drive system (available on the Endeavor SE model) that splits engine power 50:50 between the front and rear wheels, the Endeavor can tackle poor road conditions and light off-road duty with ease.
Base model estimated mpg: 15/21
Estimated starting price: $28,299
