Shopping for a new Mitsubishi Endeavor?
SEE LOCAL CLASSIFIEDS
the new model year, the mid-size Endeavor crossover’s trim levels have been
significantly pared down; last year's XLS and Limited have been dropped from the
roster entirely, and in their place buyers will find just the Endeavor LS and
SE. The SE now comes in three grades—base SE, SE with the Sunroof Package, or SE
with the Sunroof Package and a new DVD-based navigation system. Most big-ticket
items (such as the GPS system and leather seats) are only available on SEs,
which for '07 also comes standard with heated seats and a premium Rockford
Acoustic Design stereo with Sirius satellite radio. Both the SE and LE continue
with the 3.8 liter V-6 engine used previously, rated for 2007 at 225 horsepower
and 255 lb-ft of torque. A four-speed automatic transmission with manual-shift
abilities is standard, and both front- and all-wheel-drive models are available.
All '07 models also get standard rollover-sensing side curtain airbags, a tire
pressure monitoring system and 17-inch wheels. AWD-equipped models get
Mitsubishi's Active Skid and Traction Control (ASTC) system; non-AWD versions
get electronic traction control. Anti-lock braking with Electronic Brakeforce
Distribution (EBD) is now standard on both trim levels.
