Featuring a dramatic, all-new design and styling plus an
overhaul in the performance and safety departments, the
Mercury Mountaineer is even better-equipped than before
to challenge the steep competition in the flooded SUV market.
A magnet for the younger set, the Mountaineer boasts a contemporary
and decidedly urban appearance.

two engine sizes - the SOHC V6 and the SOHC V8, and offers
and optional all-wheel driver version.

and horizontal brush guards over the taillights. Other changes
include a wider track and longer wheelbase.
The Mercury Mountaineer features a standard 4.0-litre,
SOHC V6 engine that pumps out an impressive 210 horsepower
