2007 Mitsubishi Endeavor Review
This review was written when the 2007 Mitsubishi Endeavor was new.
The 2007 Mitsubishi Endeavor is a solid performing SUV with a unique exterior and a stylish interior. If you're in the market for an affordable midsize SUV, you should also consider the highly rated Honda Pilot, Nissan Murano, and GMC Acadia.
Despite its four-year-old design, the 2007 Mitsubishi Endeavor is still praised for distinctive styling inside and out. Most test drivers find a strong engine and responsive handling that places the Endeavor's performance competitively with the best midsize crossover SUVs. Edmunds sums up the experts' view best: "The 2007 Mitsubishi Endeavor is a well-rounded crossover SUV for those who crave edgy styling in a comfortable, easy-to-drive package." Its most criticized element is the lack of a third-row seat option, available with several crossover competitors, such as the Honda Pilot, GMC Acadia, and Hyundai Santa Fe. AutoWeek considers this the Endeavor's only "major drawback."
IntelliChoice rates all versions of the 2007 Mitsubishi Endeavor as having "poor" value based on a five-year cost of ownership compared to others in its class. However, it also recognized the Endeavor as a "Smart Choice" vehicle for its low projected repair costs. But high depreciation and fuel costs make the SUV a questionable investment.
The 2007 Mitsubishi Endeavor is available in two trims: the base LS and the premium SE. Both are available in 2WD and AWD models.
