2005 Mitsubishi Endeavor Overview

The Mitsubishi Endeavor is mid-size crossover SUV, available with either front or all-wheel drive. Competitors include the Honda Pilot, Toyota Highlander, Ford Freestyle and Nissan Murano. There are only a few small changes to the Endeavor for 2005, after several upgrades during the previous model year. Front side airbags are now standard across the board, and the mid-level XLS gets an anti-theft system.

This SUV is available in three trim levels: LS, XLS and Limited. All models come standard with full power accessories, keyless entry, air conditioning, flat-folding rear seats, alloy wheels and a CD player. The XLS trim adds a few key features like a premium sound system, and the Limited offers a more upscale interior presentation.

All variants are powered by a 3.8 liter V-6, which generates 225 horsepower and 255 pound-feet of torque. A four-speed automatic is the only transmission option, but a manual shift feature is included. Fuel economy is estimated at 17/21 mpg with front wheel drive.

Reviewers noted that the Endeavor rides very much like a sedan, and the cabin features inviting and spacious seating quarters and a upscale feel. The V-6 engine is quite powerful this SUV's size, at just 4000 pounds, and the 0-60 mph time is reported at just over eight seconds.

While the Endeavor offers less cargo capacity than other options in this class, there are a few package compartments which add convenience. Endeavor buyers do not have the option of a third row seat, which gives this SUV a slight disadvantage.
