2008 Mercury Grand Marquis Review

Mercury's largest sedan continues to provide traditional American-car values, with rear-wheel drive, a standard V-8 engine and a spacious six-passenger interior with a roomy 20.6 cubic foot trunk. The standard 224-horsepower, 4.6-liter V-8 engine may also be ordered with E85/flex-fuel capability in some markets. A four-speed automatic is standard.

The power of the standard engine can be goosed a bit if you order the optional Handling Package (LS models only) which adds dual exhausts and boost the engine's output to 239 horsepower.

2008 Mercury Grand MarquisThe Marquis is quiet and comfortable, with a smooth ride and relaxed handling. Four-wheel disc anti-lock brakes are standard, with traction control, front-side airbags, and a rear air suspension optional.

Changes for '08 include a simplified trim lineup, base GS and up-level LS. A Palm Beach package — your dead giveway on the target audience — includes side airbags and other upgrades. Tire pressure monitors are now standard.

Three new packages are offered for the 2008 model year as well — a GS Comfort Appearance Package adds leather, a power driver seat and painted wheels, while the GS Confidence Package includes power mirrors and traction control. The LS Travel Package gets a CD player.
