Overview
Originally introduced in 2003, the midsize Endeavor SUV is available in two trim levels for 2006: base LS and uplevel Limited, and is available in either front-wheel or all-wheel drive. Powering all Endeavors is a 3.8L V-6 rated at 225 hp, mated to a 4-speed automatic transmission with Sportronic shifting. The transmission features fully adaptive shift control that "learns" driver inputs and tailors transmission operation to each driver's habits. Standard safety features include daytime running lamps, three-point seat belts at all seating positions, front seat belt pre-tensioners and force limiters, advanced dual-stage front air bags, and front seat-mounted side-impact air bags.

Standard amenities on the Endeavor LS include air conditioning, power accessories, an AM/FM/CD audio system, center console storage, roof rails, and a color-keyed stone guard, as well as a 60/40 rear folding seat, a driver's-side vanity mirror, and four accessory outlets. The LS model also gets 17-inch, five-spoke cast aluminum wheels.
