Manufacturer's Suggested Retail Price (MSRP), also known as "sticker" price, is a recommended selling price that automakers give a new car that is above the invoice price paid by the dealer. It is a price that does not include any options that can be added to a particular car style. When shown as a range, the prices are starting MSRPs, without options, for multiple styles for that model.
This price range reflects the Kelley Blue Book Suggested Retail value for all trim levels, but not necessarily all available options.
The Kelley Blue Book Suggested Retail value represents the amount an auto dealer might ask for a specific vehicle; the actual sale price will vary. A vehicle's popularity, condition, warranty, color and local market conditions are factors involved in determining a final price. The retail value is not a trade-in or private party value.
The Suggested Retail value assumes that the vehicle has been fully reconditioned and has a clean title history. The Suggested Retail value also allows for advertising, sales commissions, insurance and other costs of doing business as a dealer. Most vehicles offered at this price have passed an inspection, and some may carry a warranty. Vehicle mileage is assumed to be normal or below normal.

Shortly after introducing its compact Outlander SUV, Mitsubishi added the Endeavor, a larger crossover SUV. The midsize Endeavor is intended primarily for on-road motoring. A dual-range transfer case is not included, so off-road capabilities are limited. The Endeavor's competition includes the Honda Pilot, Toyota Highlander and Nissan Murano.
Two trim levels are offered: LS and SE. Front-wheel drive is standard, but SE models are available with all-wheel drive.
New for 2010 The Endeavor's front grille and liftgate gain new styling cues, and all versions now feature Bluetooth cell phone connectivity. The SE trim level has new 18-inch alloy wheels.

8.3 inches of ground clearance
Fully independent suspension
17- (LS) or 18-inch (SE) wheels
Interior Five people can fit inside the Endeavor. Rear passengers get a 60/40-split folding backseat. Cargo capacity behind the rear seat is 40.7 cubic feet, which grows to 76.4 cubic feet when the seat is folded down. Interior features include:
Standard cloth seats; optional leather upholstery
Standard CD stereo
Standard air conditioning
Standard cruise control
Optional Rockford six-CD audio system
