2010 Mercury Grand Marquis LS

2010 Mercury Grand Marquis Review

(1 Stars)  Its expiration date is here

Overview
2010 marks the end of the line for the Grand Marquis. It has served for many years as the symbol of old school American luxury. A large, low RPM V-8 driving the rear wheels, with suspension so soft that it floats over bumps rather than absorbing them. This type of ride has appealed to an older crowd for the full 30 years that platform which powers the Grand Marquis, and its sister cars, the Lincoln Town Car, and Ford Crown Victoria, has been in production. For the last several years, it's styling has remained fairly stagnant, which to its buyers has been a good thing, as they are typically a demographic who doesn't like the idea of new and different technology being added to their vehicles.

There is only trim level available at present, the LS. While it has all the features that its loyal buyers have come to love, it goes the way of the dinosaur it is taking its amazingly underpowered engine along with it. A 4.6 liter V-8 making 224 HP and mated to a 4 speed automatic was all that was offered to push this large sedan.
