Lightweight hydroformed steel sections are used for the front rails of the full-perimeter frame. Measuring 212 inches long overall, the Grand Marquis rides a 114.6-inch wheelbase, stands 56.3 inches tall and 78.3 inches wide. It is the longest and widest of its competitors, and is very similar in height.

  • 20.6 cubic feet of trunk space; larger than that of competitors
  • Trunk liftover height of 26.8 inches
  • Standard keyless entry via a fob or door keypad
  • Optional heated seats

Under the Hood
The Grand Marquis is powered by a 224-hp, 4.6-liter V-8 that makes 275 pounds-feet of torque.

  • Engine can run on E85 ethanol fuel
  • Rear-wheel drive
  • Four-speed automatic transmission
  • Power rack-and-pinion steering includes speed-dependent variable assistance

Safety
Standard safety features include:
