Vehicle Overview
Shortly after introducing its compact Outlander sport utility vehicle, Mitsubishi added the Endeavor, a larger crossover SUV. Similar in size to the automaker's seven-passenger Montero, the midsize Endeavor is intended primarily for on-road motoring. A dual-range transfer case is not included, so offroad capabilities are limited. The Endeavor's competition includes the Honda Pilot, Nissan Pathfinder, Buick Rendezvous and Chevrolet Equinox. For 2008, all Endeavors get a standard electronic stability system and a new exhaust finisher, but the rear glass no longer opens independent of the rear hatch on the LS model.

Two trim levels are offered: LS and SE. Each is available with either front- or all-wheel drive. Antilock brakes with electronic brake-force distribution are standard.

The Endeavor has a front end that features a chrome grille set above a chin-type spoiler. The bodyside cladding has been removed, and the LS has body-colored bumpers. SE models get body-colored door handles, side mirrors and rear license plate garnish. Large wheel openings and creased wheel arches are present, as is a rear bumper extension. The 2008 Endeavor gets a new exhaust finisher and three new exterior colors: Rave Red, Quick Silver and Canyon Beige.

The Endeavor rides a 108.3-inch wheelbase and has 8.3 inches of ground clearance. A fully independent suspension and all-disc brakes are utilized. The SUV has 17-inch tires.

Five people can fit inside the Endeavor. Rear passengers get a 60/40-split folding backseat. Cargo capacity behind the rear seat is 40.7 cubic feet, which grows to 76.4 cubic feet when the seat is folded down. The back window can no longer open independent of the liftgate on the LS model.

Cloth seating surfaces are standard, and leather seating surfaces are optional. Two-tone leather seating is now available on the SE. Numerous option packages that bundle features like satellite radio, a power driver's seat, leather seating surfaces, heated mirrors and a navigation system are available.

Under the Hood
The Endeavor's 3.8-liter V-6 generates 225 horsepower and 255 pounds-feet of torque. The four-speed automatic transmission incorporates a Sportronic manual-shift provision. Models with all-wheel drive have a viscous coupling. When properly equipped, maximum towing capacity is 3,500 pounds for all-wheel-drive Endeavors. For 2008, the tow package includes a power-steering fluid cooler.

Antilock brakes and side-impact airbags for the front seats are standard. Side curtain airbags with rollover protection are standard in all Endeavors, and all models get a standard electronic stability system and tire pressure monitoring system.

Driving Impressions
Overall, the Endeavor is a surprisingly enjoyable vehicle of manageable size. It handles with a light touch and maneuvers with agility in corners.

The V-6 engine delivers a satisfying burst of power when needed for passing. Mitsubishi's automatic transmission yields prompt, confident responses that are devoid of awkwardness.

Visibility is great all around. Front headroom is good, even in models equipped with a sunroof. The seats are softly cushioned, with only modest bolstering and mediocre support. Backseat space is roomy at the sides and tolerable in the center. Controls are clear and the gauges are easy to read.
