2010 Mitsubishi Endeavor Review

(2 Stars)  In need of replacement

Reviewed by Automobile Magazine on

Overview
In 2004 Mitsubishi launched the Endeavor, which was a surprise win in an Edmunds comparison test of the day. However, despite continued improvements to the model, it has started to slip under heavy pressure from other car makers in this highly competitive category. After the Montero left the lineup in 2006, the Endeavor was left as the largest SUV in Mitsubishi's fleet. To compete in this class, a third seat has become almost a price of entry and the Endeavor lacks one.

The Endeavor is available in two different trim levels; both are powered by the same 3.8 liter V-6 engine which surprisingly is only able to generate 225 HP. This is further hampered by the fact that it is shifted through a far from cutting edge four speed automatic transmission. Though Mitsubishi has tried to give it a trendier feel with the addition of paddle shifters. The engine offers plenty of torque, but combined with the transmission from days gone by cannot pull it along like a more modern 5, 6 , or even 7 speed automatic would be able to do.
