Awesome Blacktop-Eating Monster!

by Speed Freaker from Florida, the Superchaged State. on Fri May 12 2006

Test-drive one and you'll have to buy it! Most women won't "get it", but car guys will. The performance and handling are amazing for such a humongous sedan. This Marauder is a resounding echo of the high-displacement, high horsepower beast-monsters of yesteryear refined for todays tastes. Fuel mileage is about the same as a Crown Victoria/Grand Marquis if you go easy on the gas pedal. You won't want to though! This is an unusual combination of luxury and performance that is rarely seen in automobiles of this price range. Used Marauders are in the 18-25K range now, so get one quick. They aren't making them anymore. Many aftermarket speed tweaks are already available if the stock Marauder isn't quite fast enough for you, including three supercharger kit vendors. Those will add another 80-120 HP if you need it.

A dying breed

by Sam from Midland, TX on Thu Jun 26 2014

Big, comfortable, fast. Last of a dying breed. This car is NOT politically correct and could care less what you think. It drinks gas, it's appearance brings fear to children and makes the yuppie econo cars and hybrids shake in their very boots. It's raw but refined and easily the best and favorite car I've ever driven. Get an 04, it got the updated transmission. Skip the moonroof.

what a Bad A$s Car

by Corvette Mechanic from New Orleans, Louisiana on Thu Aug 09 2007

This car was very fun to drive, mustang cobra engine, even though it was a tank it could beat almost anything on the road, it comes stock with dual flowmaster polished stainless exhaust with huge tips, to tell you the truth, the best sounding engine/exhaust combination ive ever heard, and i am not a big fan of Ford products. The took the grand marquis and added a cooler looking rear bumper with marauder stamped in it, and and much cooler, cobra-inspired front bumper with fog lights and has stock 19 inch chrome rims. ver very cool, not very fuel efficient, but not the worst.

Whatta Great Car

by Las Vegas Dave from Las Vegas, NV on Thu Nov 06 2008

The marauder was a very limited production sports sedan. It is classy, beautiful, sturdy, reliable, advanced, sporty, a 'head turner', technologically way up there, and last but not lease, a bargain. The acquisition cost of this teriffic car is within anyones budget. But one, and love it for years to come.

Outstanding Vehicle - All Around

by Mid-Age Crisis Take II from Overland Park, KS on Sat Jul 05 2014

When I found my dark toreador red Marauder (thanks to Cars.com), it was love at first sight. These were only made two years (2003-2004), and there were less than a thousand 'red' ones. But whatever color you get (they had a beautiful blue in 2003), these big beautiful cars have so much more than meets the eye (but the eye-appeal is extremely noteworthy and head-turning for sure!) For anyone seeking a Crown Victoria Police Interceptor (as my original search was for), I HIGHLY recommend spending the extra money for one of these rare and beautiful Marauders.

Best balance of Power and Practicality.

by KWK from Munster, IN on Thu Jun 29 2017

This care is a real hidden gem. It has great comfort and power. It is a rare vehicle but has a lot of common parts to keep it running for a very long time. If I was to design a car for myself I could not have come closer than this vehicle.

A breeze from the past

by Jackson Noel Daniels from Cleveland, Oh on Thu Aug 03 2006

Mercury came up with a winner on this one reaching back into yesteryear for a name that fittingly adheres to the car. The smoothness along with the power makes for a very appealing car-although some may complain that it is too big. Even though it takes alot of styling cues from the Grand Marquis, the Marauder takes on its own idenity by adding a few simple touches like the floor gearshift and the 302 horsepower lurking beneath the hood. Overall a good muscle car for the money as well as a comfortable passenger car for 5 adults.

This car is like a full sized performance car

by Rick from Bethpage on Wed Sep 12 2018

I purchased my first one used in 2005. Love the car. I put 120,000 miles on it and I was still able to sell it for what almost what I paid for it 6 years prior. I like it so much, I bought another one which I still drive today.
