2008 MERCURY MOUNTAINEER DEBUTS TWO INDUSTRY-EXCLUSIVE FEATURES
The 2008 Mercury Mountaineer offers an expressive alternative in the SÚV market, delivering impressive driving dynamics, refined interior choices along wîth premium convenience and class-leading safety. It escapes the mainstream wîth many package choices that allow consumers to express their individuality and satisfy their personal needs.
For 2008, Mountaineer also addresses consumers' tech-savvy wishes wîth the addition of Mercury Sync™ – an -exclusive, voice-activated and hands-free in-car communications and entertainment system (late availability). Developed in collaboration wîth Microsoft, the system fully integrates mobile phones and media players into the vehicle using Bluetooth technology and ÚSB connectivity. Mountaineer's navigation system is improved for 2008 as well, now offering voice-activation capability for greater ease of operation.
Another -first feature that debuts later in the model year on Mountaineer is Ford Motor Company's exclusive capless fuel filling system.
Seven new package options are offered on Mountaineer in 2008, ranging from a selection of Third-Row Seat Packages to the unique look of the Mountaineer Chrome Package.
|Engine : 4.0 L., 6-cylinder|
Power: 210 hp
Torque: 254 ft-lbs
Engine : 4.6 L., 8-cylinder

Torque: 315 ft-lbs

Never Lose Your Gas Cap Again
The 2008 Mercury Mountaineer comes to market wîth a capless fuel filling system (late availability). This technology not only eliminates the inconvenience of forgetting to put the gas cap back on after fueling, but it also saves time during refueling by doing away wîth unscrewing and replacing a fuel filler cap.
The system could prove to benefit the environment as well. The capless fuel system provides a much better seal than a cap, as it isn't opened until the fuel pump nozzle is inserted. When capless fueling is completed, the nozzle is removed and the system seals shut automatically.
The exterior design of the Mountaineer reflects the design sensibility for the Mercury family of vehicles. The refined front fascia flows around the body to touches like the distinctive shape of the side mirrors and continues rearward to cues that subtly reflect and integrate design elements from the front end on the rear bumper fascia.
Primary design points on the Mountaineer capture its refined yet rugged sensibility:
For the interior, Mountaineer engages a sense of sophistication and subtle luxury while still providing generous passenger and cargo space. Mountaineer boasts nearly 85 cubic feet of cargo space and versatile seating options for up to seven passengers.
Mountaineer continues to offer several §egmènt-exclusive features, including PowerFold™ third-row seats, power-deployable running boards and a heated windshield for added driver and passenger convenience.
Premier models are available wîth a three-valve 4.6-liter V-8 engine mated to a 6-speed automatic transmission. (posted on conceptcarz.com) This advanced V-8 features variable cam timing and creates a robust 292 horsepower and 300 pound-feet of torque. Úsing technology more commonly found in luxury sport sedans, Mountaineer's 6-speed transmission provides smooth, seamless performance that makes the most of the V-8's power band while improving fuel efficiency.
A 4.0-liter V-6 wîth a 5-speed automatic comes standard in both Mountaineer and Mountaineer Premier. Both V-6 and V-8 Mountaineers are available wîth all-wheel drive.
For 2008, Mountaineer can still claim the most standard safety features in its class, including an array of more than 10 advanced safety features.
Standard safety features include:
Adaptive safety. A five-level front passenger occupant classification sensor, enhanced restraint control module and a driver-seat track position sensor help provide information used to adapt safety systems in the vehicle. Driver and front passenger seat air bags adapt to an occupant's size and the severity of a crash. Mountaineer also features adaptive technologies for load-limiting seatbelt retractors and a collapsible §teering column.
