The 2000 Mercury Sable is a mid-size, five-passenger car available as a sedan or a station wagon for more rear cargo space. The standard engine is a 3.0L V6 which produces 155 hp. However, the LS Premium trim boosts output of this engine to 200 hp. All trims use a four-speed automatic transmission which helps the Sable achieve nearly 30 mpg on the highway. Four-wheel disc brakes are standard on the station wagon while the sedan receives front discs and rear drums.
