WITH MERCURY MOUNTAINEER, FIRST IMPRESSIONS WILL BE LASTING ONES.
Your first step into new surroundings can leave quite an impression. So as Mountaineer Premier’s available power-deployable running boards glide out to ease the way, rest assured that your entrance will not go unnoticed. Up front, the bold presence of Mountaineer’s gleaming satin-aluminum-finish grille capably announces your arrival. Standard 17" machined-aluminum wheels on Mountaineer and 18" satin-aluminum chrome-clad wheels on Premier (shown) add to its already impressive stance. Red Light-Emitting Diode (LED) taillamps have clear lenses and artfully accented satin-aluminum-finish grilles, while subtle “Mercury” detailing sets off the bright step that anchors the rear bumper.

AVAILABLE 292-HP V-8 POWERS MOUNTAINEER PREMIER.
In the 2008 Mercury Mountaineer, the numbers really add up in your favor. The 4.6L 3-valve V-8 engine, available on Mountaineer Premier, tops the numbers list with 292 hp and 300 lb.-ft. of torque. Also providing assistance is the first-in-class, available 6-speed automatic transmission, whose evenly spaced gear ratios make the most of the V-8’s powerband. On Mountaineer and Mountaineer Premier, a standard 4.0L V-6 engine is teamed with a wide-ratio 5-speed automatic transmission. With 210 hp and 254 lb.-ft. of torque, this clean-burning engine even meets strict Ultra Low Emissions Vehicle II (ULEV II) standards. Mountaineer’s Independent Rear Suspension features a compact, trailing-arm setup. It works with the front suspension and stiff frame to deliver a refined ride and excellent handling. Heightening that connectivity is Mountaineer’s available full-time All-Wheel-Drive (AWD) system. This intuitive system smartly adapts to changing road and weather conditions as they occur, instantly transferring power to the axle with the best grip to help Mountaineer really hold the road.
