The Mercury Mountaineer, like most Mercury models, is similar to a Ford sibling. This time it's the Explorer. The 2010 Mercury Mountaineer is a mid-sized semi-luxury SUV that shares most of its components with the Explorer. The Mountaineer still isn't a full crossover and it rides more like a truck and has excellent towing abilities (up to 6960 lbs). This third generation 2010 Mountaineer comes in two trim levels, but even its basic trim is luxurious.
The basic can seat five passengers comfortably in its cloth interior. The Premier trim adds more class with leather interior and Ford's SYNC hands free system, so you can control the upgraded audio features. The Mountaineer is AWD and is packed with safety features that'll help keep you and your precious cargo safe.
