Vehicle Overview
The Mercury Mountaineer is an upscale twin to the Ford Explorer. It competes against SUVs like the Buick Enclave and Kia Borrego. It's available in base or Premier trim, with optional four-wheel drive. It seats up to seven people.

New for 2010
The Mountaineer adds a few standard features to the Premier trim, and the navigation system gains Sirius' Travel Link service. The electronic stability system adds trailer-sway control.

Mercury says the front styling and rectangular headlights suggest a subtle evolution in the company's design direction, with an emphasis on the vertically stacked front-end elements. Premier models add upgraded wheels and aluminum roof rails.
  • 17-, 18- and 20-inch wheels
  • Satin aluminum touches on exterior
  • Available power-retractable running boards
  • Standard black crossbars for roof rails
  • Standard capless fuel filler system

The Mountaineer can carry five occupants, with an optional third-row seat raising capacity to seven. The Sync communication system integrates phones and media players and allows those devices to be voice-activated. Sirius' subscription-based Travel Link service, included with the optional navigation system, can pull up local gas prices, movie times, weather reports and sports scores.
  • Optional heated leather seats
  • Second-row seats can be bench or buckets; they recline on the Premier
  • Optional Sync system and satellite radio
  • Optional rear-seat DVD entertainment system with 8-inch video screen
  • Optional navigation system with Sirius Travel Link
  • Optional power-folding third-row seats

Under the Hood
There is a choice between a V-6 or V-8 engine for the Mountaineer.
  • 210-horsepower, 4.0-liter V-6 with 254 pounds-feet of torque
  • 292-hp, 4.6-liter V-8 with 315 pounds-feet of torque
  • Five-speed automatic with V-6; six-speed automatic with V-8
  • Rear- or all-wheel drive
  • Can tow up to 7,055 pounds when properly equipped

Ford's AdvanceTrac now incorporates standard trailer-sway control. The system senses when the trailer you're towing is starting to sway and takes measures to bring it back into line. Other standard features include:
  • Four-wheel-disc antilock brakes
  • Side-impact and side curtain airbags
  • Electronic stability system with Roll Stability Control
