The 2010 Mitsubishi Endeavor
is a midsize crossover sport utility vehicle (SUV) available in two trim levels: base LS and luxury SE. Equipped with a 3.8 liter V-6 engine coupled to a four-speed automatic transmission, the Mitsubishi Endeavor comes with front-wheel drive on the LS and all-wheel drive on the SE.
With spacious seating front and back, the Mitsubishi Endeavor is a nice overall package but nothing special in the SUV world. While it does get great safety test ratings, the Endeavor has poor fuel economy, as rated by the EPA in the 15 mpg city / 22 mpg highway range.
New for 2010
For 2010 the Mitsubishi Endeavor received a restyled tailgate and front grille, a Bluetooth hands-free phone system with voice recognition, and two new exterior colors. The base LS trim got color-keyed door handles and side mirrors, while the top-level SE comes with all-new 18-inch alloy wheels.

On the Outside
Although appearing dated next to newer designs, the Mitsubishi Endeavor did receive color-keyed bumpers, chrome grille trim, and a revised tailgate for 2010.
From the Inside
The base LS comes with standard a 140-watt audio system, Bluetooth phone capability, cruise control, and keyless entry. The premium SE adds a 360-watt Rockford Acoustic Design audio system, leather seating, and heated seats.
The Mitsubishi Endeavor's 3.8-liter 225-horsepower, 250 pound-feet V-6 engine is mated to a four-speed automatic with manual shift. Front-wheel drive is available on both the LS and SE trims, while all-wheel drive is available only on the SE, but it is not intended for serious off-road but rather inclement weather and light off-pavement trips.
Standard safety features on the Mitsubishi Endeavor include dual front, front side, and side curtain air bags with rollover sensors, stability and traction control, anti-lock brakes with electronic brake-force distribution, and a tire pressure monitoring system.
