Here are the 10 top Mitsubishi SUVs of all time.
10. 2005 Mitsubishi Endeavor SUV 4WD
The tenth best Mitsubishi SUV of all time is the 2005 Endeavor 4WD. According to Edmunds, this vehicle was popular because of the spacious interior and comfortable seating. The V6 engine gave it plenty of torque for great acceleration and it performed well in crash testing. It also has a solid build and quality materials on the interior. On the downside, there is less cargo space than its competition in class and there isn't an available third row seat. Consumers give it an overall rating of 4.8 out of 5 which is remarkably high
9. 1985 Mitsubishi Montero

8. 2013 Mitsubishi Outlander

7. 2018 Mitsubishi Outlander

The safety scores for this model are also high. It comes in a choice of an I-4 or a V-6. This edition was and still is immensely popular but the base I-4 doesn't have a lot of power and if you choose the V-6, it requires the use of premium fuel and he driving range is shorter. Some were not that impressed with the simple and conservative interior that definitely lacks luxury quality.
