The new 2008 Mercury Sable offers customers a sophisticated new look inside and out, a significantly quieter cabin, a more luxurious ride and a more powerful 3.5-liter V-6 engine.

Sable’s modern, distinctive look builds on the clean, modern design themes featured on the Mercury Milan and Mariner. Sable’s clean, integrated front-end design centers on Mercury’s signature satin aluminum waterfall grille, flanked by detailed jeweled projector beam headlamps that sweep up over the front fenders.

A core attribute of Mercury design is a modern, airy interior, complementing the clean exterior. With Sable, this design direction comes to life in two-tone interior trim with unique accents.

Standard cloth seats sport a modern graphic design while the Premier Series offers supple two-tone leather seats detailed with contrast stitching and featuring a new, more modern, perforated pattern.

Sable features an award-winning 3.5-liter V-6 engine and a sharp, 6-speed transmission. The Duratec 35 engine produces 263 horsepower and 245 lb.-ft of torque. The available all-wheel-drive system features an electronically controlled center coupling that can distribute exact amounts of torque from front to rear, up to 100 percent to either axle.
