2010 Mitsubishi Endeavor Overview
After taking a year off in 2009, the 2010 Mitsubishi Endeavor is back and ready for action in the midsize crossover SUV segment.
Although the Mitsubishi Endeavor went on hiatus last year, it doesn’t add many new or improved features to the 2010 model. The Endeavor seats five, has two distinct trims and one common powertrain. The LS and upscale SE boast a 225-horsepower, 3.8-liter V-6 engine that is mated to a four-speed Sportronic automatic transmission. Two-wheel drive is standard and all-wheel control (full-time four-wheel drive) is available on the SE trim. If you fancy yourself an outdoorsman, then you’ll dig the Endeavor’s maximum towing capacity of 3,500 pounds. The Endeavor receives mediocre fuel economy with 15 mpg in the city and 19-21 mpg on the highway.
Once on the inside of the 2010 Mitsubishi Endeavor you will sink into the optional power leather eight-way adjustable driver’s seat with lumbar support, and soak up the rays through the optional power sunroof. A 140-watt CD/MP3-compatible audio system with six speakers comes standard, while a 650-watt Rockford Acoustic Design 6-CD/MP3 premium audio system, SIRIUS Satellite Radio, DVD navigation system with 8-inch LCD touch screen and rear back-up camera are optional on the SE. Bluetooth connectivity, auto-off halogen headlamps, chrome front grille and parabolic fog lights come standard along with a 60/40 rear folding seat. 17-inch alloy wheels are also standard, while 18-inch alloy wheels are optional.
Safety comes standard on the 2010 Mitsubishi Endeavor. Dual-stage front SRS airbag with front passenger occupant sensors, side and curtain airbags with roll-over protection, anti-lock braking system, electronic brake-force distribution, stability control, tire pressure monitoring system, child safety locks for the rear doors and the LATCH (Lower Anchor and Tethers for Children) system all come standard.
Getting back into the game shouldn’t be too difficult for the standard-laden 2010 Mitsubishi Endeavor.
