Can I replace regular Cardio with HIIT?

Can I replace regular Cardio with HIIT?
I much prefer a short, 15 - 20 min HIIT workout than a 45 min - 60 min regular cardio workout. I don't want to run a marathon or anything, but I'm wondering if only doing 15 - 20 min HIIT sessions twice a week will affect my endurance for the odd run or anything else that requires lengthy cardio endurance?

Will short HIIT sessions keep my endurance up for the odd time I need it for some lengthy regular cardio like a run with a friend or something?

(I lift 3 times a week and I plan on substituting two HIIT workouts a month with a 60 min plyometrics day plus I walk very briskly 60 min, 5 days/wk. My main goal is fat loss, while increasing power and strength with enough endurance for everyday fun and life, plus be able to Hike strenuously in the mountains for hours during the summer. )

~ I do now what others won't - so I can have later what others can't.
