Mitsubishi Endeavor SUV Gains New Refinements For 2008
Mitsubishi Motors North America, Inc. (MMNA) continues to enhance the value of its Endeavor mid-size crossover SUV model, making the Active Stability and Traction Control (ASTC) system standard on front-wheel drive models for 2008. (The ASTC system was already standard on the all-wheel drive models.) Additional refinements for 2008 add a premium character to Endeavor while preserving its excellent customer value.
Endeavor is available as the high-value LS and the luxuriously equipped SE that challenges near-luxury brand models, but at a better value. All models are powered by a 225-hp 3.8-liter SOHC V-6 engine that requires regular-grade fuel. In addition to three rich new exterior colors, the 2008 Endeavor offers a sumptuous new two-tone leather seating option in the SE model grade. The Suki Beige seating is accented by black side bolsters for a truly luxurious appearance.
'Endeavor brings bold, sporty style to the mid-size segment and today remains a compelling choice, thanks to its smooth, easy-to-drive performance, comprehensive safety technology and generous standard equipment,' said Dan Kuhnert, vice president for marketing and sales, Mitsubishi Motors North America.
Endeavor's standout design was inspired by the Mitsubishi Motorsports SUVs that have conquered the world's toughest rallies, including winning the 5,569-mile Dakar Rally for the seventh straight time in 2007. Such racing experience has helped Mitsubishi infuse Endeavor with the everyday durability and reliability that leads to high owner satisfaction.
Convincing Choice for Safety
Endeavor delivers the level of safety that family buyers especially demand, achieving 5-star ratings for frontal (driver) and side impact (front and rear seat) crash tests conducted by the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration (NHTSA). The Insurance Institute for Highway Safety awarded Endeavor its highest ranking - 'Good' overall - in its frontal offset crash test.
