The Mitsubishi 6G75 3.8-liter V6 engine was produced at the Kyoto plant from 2002 to 2021 and was installed on such popular concern models as the Endeavor, Pajero, Galant or Eclipse.
Mid-size crossover Mitsubishi Endeavor was created specifically for the US market in 2003. The car was also produced there – at a plant in Illinois. The only possible power unit for the car was a V6 3.8 engine with a capacity of 215 hp (after the modernization of 2004, the output was increased to 225 hp) paired with a four-speed automatic transmission. The base Mitsubishi Endeavor was front-wheel drive, with an all-wheel drive transmission an option. In 2006, the car received an updated design.
The sales volume of the crossover turned out to be much lower than expected, and in 2008 Mitsubishi even suspended the supply of this crossover to private buyers for some time, leaving only corporate sales. In 2009, Mitsubishi Endeavor underwent another light restyling, but this did not help increase demand: the annual sales volume did not exceed 5 thousand cars, and in August 2011 the production of the model was completed.
