The Mercury Grand Marquis is a Full-size Rear-wheel drive sedan sold by the Mercury division of the Ford Motor Company. It is essentially Mercury’s version of the Ford Crown Victoria with which it shares its Panther platform along with the Lincoln Town Car. All three vehicles are presently manufactured at the St. Thomas Assembly Plant in Canada though a plant in St.

Louis, Missouri was also used until 1985. Since its introduction, the Grand Marquis has only been available with V8 engine . and remains one of the last traditional American full-size cars, with features including 6-passenger bench seating.

Introduction

1992 redesign

2005 and later changes

2006-2007 Mercury Grand Marquis

For 2006, the front end was refreshed. This included a new, rectangular grille, bearing a likeness to the 1980s models. Fog lights were now an option.

Interior changes included a new instrument cluster, which featured the addition of a tachometer and digital odometer/tripmeter. The mast antenna on the right rear fender was integrated back into the rear window and new wheel designs were made available. This was the first year for the 4R75E Transmission (mechanics) . [1]

New for 2007 is the Palm Beach package which includes a leather-wrapped steering wheel, heated exterior mirrors with chrome fronts, cashmere leather seats with embroidered Palm Beach logos, side impact air bags, unique satin applique on the instrument panel and door panel, Palm Beach badging, and 16 9-spoke chrome wheels. There is also the option for a conventional spare tire and an auto dimming rear view mirror. An Audiophile 6 disc in-dash changer with an 8 speaker configuration is available.

The engine is now E85 fuel capable.

For 2008, the Grand Marquis lost its Handling and Performance Package as well as its 5-passenger sport option (similar to the Crown Victoria’s LX Premium Sport and Handling Package, known as the LSE until 2006) These were the only Grand Marquis produced for North America to be equipped with dual exhaust.

Mercury Grand Marquis

For 2009, the Grand Marquis is available in only 2 trim options; LS Fleet and LS Retail. The GS has been dropped. Also, Mercury/Lincoln dealers in the United States have a No stock rule in effect for the Grand Marquis, as incentives as high as $4000 were becoming a requirement to remove them from dealer lots, usually after several months.

The LS Fleet is available for fleet purchase only in Canada and the United States, and the LS Retail is available on dealer special orders only in the United States. The Grand Marquis has been replaced in Canada’s retail market by the new Ford Taurus. Standard equipment on both models is the new, federally mandated recessed window switches and side impact airbags.

Fuel Tank Safety Concerns

Intake Manifold Defect

Model years 1996 to 2001 inclusive, using an all-composite intake manifold, are subject to coolant leaks. Late in 2005 Ford settled a Class action lawsuit. See Intake Manifold Defect for details.

Canadian market

Mexican Market

The Grand Marquis was sold in Mexico from 1979 to 2004 as a Ford, but it kept the Mercury badge on the front grille. The Grand Marquis was replaced for the 2005 model year by the Mercury Montego, due to slowing sales accounting to the sedan’s size. Although the Mercury Montego was intended to invigorate full-size Mercury sales, it was dropped after the 2007 Model year because of its poor success.
