Starting at | Starting at 14 MPG City - 20 MPG Highway
As a sister model to the Ford Explorer, the 5-passenger Mountaineer has space and towing capacity to spare. The difference is in off-road capability and overall comfort. The Mountaineer is not intended to take on the rough stuff; rather, it has been tuned for city and highway driving, with upgrades to creature comforts inside, a more refined exterior appearance, and a starting price under $30,000.
The Mercury Mountaineer remains unchanged for 2010, after a few upgrades to styling and safety in 2009, including standard side curtain airbags.
As in 2009, there are two levels of trim for the Mountaineer, Base and Premier. Both come standard with a 4.0-liter V6 engine that makes 210 hp as well as a 5-speed automatic transmission, and front-wheel drive, though all-wheel drive is an option for both models. The Premier package adds an optional 4.6-liter V8 engine good for 292 hp with a 6-speed automatic transmission.
