Mercury Grand Marquis


Overview Edit

The Grand Marquis is essentially a luxurious version of the Ford Crown Victoria. It comes in two trim levels; GS and LS. The trim level can be identified by the fifth, sixth and seventh digits in the VIN.

A Grand Marquis GS is represented by M74, while a Grand Marquis LS Premium is represented by M75.

The Grand Marquis shares the same Panther platform as the Ford Crown Victoria, Lincoln Town Car and the former Mercury Marauder. The Town Car will soon share the same manufacturing plant with the Grand Marquis and Crown Victoria when Ford’s Wixom factory is closed. Current models are powered by Ford’s 4.6L SOHC V8 engine, which produces 224 hp, (239 hp with handling/dual exhaust package).

The only exception for power output was the Mercury Marauder, the Grand Marquis’ high performance cousin which was powered by a DOHC version of the 4.6L engine and produced 302 hp (224 kW).

Power is carried to the rear end by a four-speed electronically-controlled, wide-ratio automatic transmission. This transmission is known as the 4R70W, and is the successor to Ford’s AOD and AODE transmissions of the early 1990s.

Mercury has always been marketed as a step-up from the Ford brand and has historically been more performance and luxury oriented. There are indications of that in the Grand Marquis. Properly equipped, the large sedan can be both a comfortable semi-luxury sedan while still offering adequate performance.

The Grand Marquis remains quite affordable, priced well below similarly well-equipped entry-level luxury sedans. Prices for the Grand Marquis range from $26,105 for the GS to $28,995 for the LS Premium.

Recent Changes Edit

For 2008, Mercury added a standard tire pressure monitoring system on the GS and LS Premium. In addition, outside temperature display is now standard on the LS. New optional equipment for the GS includes a Comfort Appearance Package that includes leather trim seats, a power driver seat and 17-inch painted aluminum wheels. For 2008 the GS also has an optional Confidence Package with heated mirrors, fog lamps, and traction control.

The LS now offers the Travel Package with CD and cassette player and conventional spare tire as optional.
