Review: 2010 Mitsubishi Endeavor

March 3, 2010

The 2010 Mitsubishi Endeavor is on of the most affordable midsize SUVs in it's class. It is evident when looking at the exterior that Mitsubishi have tried to make this vehicle stand out from other SUVs.  They have succeeded in doing so with the sharp lines of the front end, it doesn't have as many rounded off edges as you would expect to see in this class of vehicle.  However, the style of the Endeavor hasn't changed for 2010, the only difference is in the re-designed tailgate.

There are two trims to choose from, the base LS and the premium SE. All trim levels come with a 3.8-liter 225-horsepower V-6 engine, which seems to prove not as powerful as its competitors.  Acceleration on the other hand is impressive, the smooth take off will get you from 0-60 in 7.6 seconds.  The 2WD version of the Endeavor achieves 15 mpg city and 21 mpg on the highway, while the 4WD does 15 mpg city and 19 on the highway.

If you're into off-road riding the Endeavor is not the vehicle for you.  It handles reasonably well in standard road conditions, other than some body roll and vehicle lean.  Although it can handle itself in certain off road situations, it is not built for usage on any major terrain.  The interior offers a comfortable driving position, with plenty of room for rear seat passengers.  Features on the SE include, cruise control, power locks and mirrors, air conditioning, and six-speaker 140-watt CD audio system.  The LS has many other added interior features, such as, a leather-wrapped steering wheel and shifter, heated leather seats, and 10-way power adjustable driver's seat.

This SUV can be purchased for the reasonable price of $27,238.  Cargo space could have been better, the 76.4 cubic feet is the maximum for the Mitsubishi Endeavor.  Safety features include, Traction Control system and anti-lock brakes with brake force distribution.  The Endeavor proved to be good when tested in frontal offset and sside impact crashes which will look good for car insurance quotes.  Mistsubishi could have done a lot more with the 2010 Endeavor, but for the money it has enough going for it to be a good family vehicle.
