2008 model year changes
For 2008, the Mercury Mountaineer undergoes a mild recontenting in order to lower the cost of entry. The Premier models' park assist, heated front seats with memory, and power folding rear seat become options rather than standard. Likewise, leather seating is now optional on the base Mountaineers. Thanks to these steps, pricing has dropped across the Mountaineer line by about $1,500, making the SUV affordable to more buyers. New equipment for 2008 includes Ford's Microsoft-powered voice-activated SYNC system that is able to control cell phones and audio devices. New 20-inch wheels are also available on Premier models.
Standard safety features; enjoyable cabin with quality materials; comfortable ride; V8 power.
Special features for 2008
Mercury's 2008 mid-size Mountaineer SUV, which is closely related to the Ford Explorer, has truck-based underpinnings, making it a good choice for those who plan to tow. It also makes a strong argument based on safety features. And with plenty of standard comfort and convenience equipment, plus the choice of either V6 or V8 power, it represents a strong value when compared to competitors like the Honda Pilot.
