The Endeavor dates to 2004, competing quite well with other midsized SUVs of the era.
It's quiet, has a fairly comfortable ride and secure handling, but cornering isn't particularly agile.
The refined 3.8-liter V6 provides strong acceleration.
Like most car-based SUVs, the Endeavor didn't come with low-range gearing, but the AWD is appropriate for snow and sand.
Road noise is a bit pronounced, but the interior is put together well and outward visibility is good.
The rear seat is spacious and the seatback is easy to fold to expand the cargo area.
Never a big seller, Endeavor's numbers took a nosedive after 2007.
The model was discontinued after the 2011 model year.
