For 2011, Mitsubishi adds the Navigation and Sunroof package to the up-level Endeavor SE. The package comes at no additional cost and includes touch-screen navigation, rear backup camera, a power sunroof, and a rear cargo cover.
Changes for the
2010 Mitsubishi Endeavor include a new grille and tailgate design, new 18-inch alloy wheels on the SE trim and the addition of Bluetooth hands-free phone connectivity with voice recognition.
For 2008 Mitsubishi equips all Endeavors with anti-lock brakes (ABS), Active Stability and Traction Control and a power-steering-fluid cooler. The rear glass hatch which opens independently of the main hatch is no longer available on LS models.
Endeavor models equipped with all-wheel drive receive Active Skid and Traction Control (ASTC), while side-curtain airbags become standard on both the LS and SE trim levels. A navigation system is now offered, but only on the upscale SE model.
In a sea of car-based,
crossover sport-utility vehicles, it's easy to overlook the
2011 Mitsubishi Endeavor. Although the Endeavor has been around for a number of years, it is still not on many consumers' radar. For those not needing rock-climbing off-road ability or the need to tow a big boat, a vehicle like the Mitsubishi Endeavor makes good, practical sense. With room for five and available all-wheel drive, the Endeavor competes with such venerable favorites as the
Nissan Murano and
GMC Terrain. However, it's the Mitsubishi Endeavor's long list of standard features and competitive price that will probably motivate most consumers to give this sporty crossover a second look.
Great Reliable SUV that runs FOREVER
By KCBusiness on Wednesday, February 22, 2012
I owned and sold this car Reason: Purchased another one
"We purchased the SUV used with over 100K miles already and drove it forever having to do little more than oil changes, timing belt at 300K miles and tires. It is fun to drive, handles more like a car than a large SUV, gets pretty good gas mileage (averaged 20MPG), and was comfortable for short or long trips.
Plenty of interior space for 2 adults and a baby in a car seat and all of our luggage for vacation. It was nice enough to drive for business meetings with modern styling and a smooth comfortable ride for clients."
"This Truck has treated me well. Drive great in the snow and has a remarkably large truck capacity. I was able to close the hatch with 10' long 2x4's i fit a loveseat 69x38 into the back and was able to easily close the hatch. No complaints."
"I moved from a beautiful, comfortable Cadillac Eldorado to this vehicle because I wanted LOTS of room, better handling in inclement weather, and a more fun ride. I used to think I loved a big, low 2-door car like the Eldorado (or the T-bird or Firebird, both of which I owned prior to that), but this vehicle absolutely blows me away. I've never driven or ridden in an SUV that handles and rides so much like a car. It was so easy to move from my Caddy to this, except that now I have so much room, cargo space, and I'm a million miles higher up! I love having the benefits of riding in a truck, with none of the discomfort that trucks have. I've always hated the way trucks (and most SUVs) ride, but my '05 Endeavor is like riding on a cloud. I don't even feel bumps in the road, and I feel so safe in bad weather now. It also takes turns and curves much more like a car than a truck. I don't feel like I'm going to topple over when I make a sharp turn. I love how spacious it is, and it's also a beautiful vehicle to look at. I think it's much more attractive than most full-size SUVs, and gas mileage is good. A tank of gas will get me about 320-360 miles on the highway, and around 300 in town. It's an 18 gallon tank, but it's an AWD model, so I think it's pretty fair on gas. It's also really nice and comfy inside, and I love the blue interior lights. I wish the shifter was illuminated. People always comment on how nice it is, and buying it used from a Mitsubishi dealer, I got a phenomenal value. I couldn't find a nicer SUV for the price. The closest I could find was an 04 Explorer (no thanks!). I will buy this again when (IF) I ever finish with my '05. It is a bit noisy on occasion and the shifting isn't incredibly smooth when I slow down, but it's a very heavy vehicle, so I think that's why it seems awkward at times.
I love this vehicle."
