A Buyer’s Guide to the 2011 Mitsubishi Endeavor

Mitsubishi Endeavor 2011

The 2011 Mitsubishi Endeavor is a crossover SUV that manages to provide decent comfort, power and performance into a single package. This also marked the final year of production for the SUV, as it was phased out due to stiff competition and flagging sales.

Key Features

There are several key features available as both standard and optional equipment for the 2011 Mitsubishi Endeavor. The 3.8-liter V6 engine is one such standard feature. The optional tow package is another. Interestingly, the SUV comes standard with a 360-watt audio system designed and developed by Rockford Fosgate. A rear backup camera is also standard, as is a power sunroof.

Changes for This Model Year

The only change for the 2011 model year was moving the sunroof and navigation systems from optional equipment to standard inclusions on all models.

What We Like

One of the single best things about the 2011 Mitsubishi Endeavor is the sheer amount of leg and headroom for front and rear seats. Seriously, it’s some of the best in the class. Another benefit is the number of standard features offered by the automaker – everything from a navigation system to a high-end audio system is included in the sticker price.

What Concerns Us

With all that being said, there are many things that concern us about the 2011 Endeavor. For instance, the SUV only offers two rows of seating, with no optional third row. You’ll find better options with competitors. Another drawback is the middling fuel economy. The engine is also not as powerful as it could be, and the transmission is more than outdated. Cargo capacity is also limited.

Available Models

Mitsubishi offered the 2011 Endeavor in two trim flavors – the LS and the SE. The LS is the base model, and the LE is meant to be the “luxury” version. Both use the same engine and transmission. They’re equipped with a 3.8-liter V8 engine putting out 225 hp and 255 lb-ft of torque. The default format for both trim levels is two-wheel drive, but all-wheel drive can be added. Fuel economy is 15/21 mpg for the two-wheel drive version and 15/19 for the all-wheel drive variant.

Major Recalls

No recalls have been issued for the 2011 Mitsubishi Endeavor.

Common Issues

The most common complaints from drivers center on the outdated body style and interior of the 2011 Mitsubishi Endeavor. The fuel economy also gets low marks, and many feel that the rear cargo capacity could be much better.
