It was introduced way back in 2004, but the Mitsubishi Endeavor is one of those mid-size soft roaders that has simply fallen through the cracks in a saturated market. Sure, it got a facelift for 2006, but with the onset of the global recession in 2008, Mitsubishi suspended production for ’09, instead choosing to give its aging people hauler another minor revamp the following year. Here we are, on the cusp of 2011 and the Endeavor is still with us, though for how much longer remains to be seen.
The biggest news for the ’11 model year are the adoption of satellite navigation, back up camera and power sunroof as standard equipment on the up-level Endeavor SE; whereas before they were optional features. The result is an approximately $2,000 increase in the sticker price for the SE, which is available with front or all-wheel drive; the base LS is still FWD only. Both Endeavors are still powered by the 3.8- liter V6, rated at 225-hp and 255 lb-ft of torque, a version of which is also found in the Eclipse sports coupe and Spyder, so aging or not, at least they’ve got some pep under the hood.
