2010 Mercury Mountaineer

2010 Mercury Mountaineer Review

(2 Stars)  The Joan Rivers of SUVs

Reviewed by Automobile Magazine on

The Mercury Mountaineer, now in its second generation, is the only SUV in Mercury's catalog large enough to seat 7 people. While it uses a truck like body on frame chassis, it remains highly regarded in this category, much like its corporate cousin, the Ford Explorer. As with all Mercury models, if you want one, you need to act soon, as the entire brand is going to under the axe in the near future. The Mercury has sold well due to its more pleasant ride, the use of All-Wheel Drive as opposed to standard four wheel drive, and a host of standard feature upgrades. The class has become more competitive however, and the Mountaineer is starting to slip under pressure from other auto makers.

Engines for the Mountaineer are either a 4.0 liter V-6 making 210 HP or a 4.6 liter V-8 which produces 292 HP. The V-6 makes due with a five speed automatic transmission, while the V-8 gets an upgrade to a six speed automatic. Both engine models come standard with rear wheel drive but can utilize all-wheel drive as an optional upgrade.
