Type: Full Sized Sedan
Drive: Rear Wheel DriveThe big Mercury, is a slightly fancier twin of the Ford Crown Victoria, features the stout body-on-frame design that set the American luxury car standard. Buyers prize this Mercury for its roomy cabin, plush, quiet ride and bulletproof construction. It's no wonder that for decades its plainer Ford relative was the favorite of cab companies, police departments and fleet operators everywhere. For the full-size sedan shopper who just wants a big, comfortable V8-equipped sedan, a used Mercury Grand Marquis offers compelling value.
Type: Mid Sized Sedan
Drive: Rear Wheel DriveThe Mercury Milan shares much of the same design, drivetrain, and safety technology as the Ford Fusion. The Milan provides stable handling and enough interior space for five adult passengers. The main difference between the two cars is that the Milan is more upscale in appearance and typically comes with more standard features. The Milan squares off equally against competitors such as the BMW 3 Series and Acura TL. The Milan also features a sensible interior layout, and its price tends to be lower than those of traditional class leaders. As an alternative to other mainstream models, the Mercury Milan is definitely worth a look.
Type: Mid Sized SUV
Drive: Rear Wheel Drive and available All Wheel DriveThe Mercury Mountaineer, which shares most of its mechanical, and design attributes with the enormously popular Ford Explorer, helped define the luxury SUV market segment that quickly developed from the SUV segment created by the Ford Explorer. More standard amenities, softer suspension tuning and all-wheel drive instead of traditional four-wheel drive placed the Mercury Mountaineer in the upper ranks of midsize luxury SUVs. This was especially true after its 2002 redesign, which brought about a vast improvement in both ride and handling. The Mountaineer still deserves consideration for used SUV shoppers. The Mercury Mountaineer's seating comfort and cargo room, and its repair record stands above GM's or Jeep's entries.
