About Mercury Mountaineer

Being mechanically identical to the Ford Explorer, Mercury Mountaineer was built by Mercury, which is a division of the great American multinational automaker Ford Motor Company that sells entry-level premium vehicles under the Mercury brand, between 1996 and 2010 as a mid-size luxury Sport Utility Vehicle (SUV). Originally introduced to take the place of Ford Explorer Limited, Mountaineer had been placed in the upper ranks of mid-size SUVs. Being awarded due to Class Exclusive Roll Stability Control (RSC) System and receiving Consumers Digest Best Buy, Mercury Mountaineer was still replaced by the Ford Explorer due to the suspension of Mercury brand after being manufactured for three generations.
The second-generation Mercury Mountaineer was produced from October 2001 to 2005 based on the Ford U1 platform. Featured an exterior appearance similar to the 2000 Mountaineer concept car debuted at the Los Angeles Auto Show, Mountaineer came in two trim levels: Base and Premier. During this generation, Mercury Mountaineer was powered by either a 4.0 L V6 or a 4.6 L V6 and engines sent power through a 5-speed automatic transmission to the rear wheels or four wheels. The more recent Mountaineer was greatly refined in terms of luxury and performance. The 4.0 L V6 rated at 210 horsepower and the 4.6 L V6 cranking out 292 hp are still the power sources for Mountaineer, but it also added a new 5-speed automatic transmission.
