The 2010 Mercury Mountaineer continues to blend comfort and capability in a premium midsize Sport Utility Vehicle. Premier models become even more feature-rich for 2010 courtesy of a power moonroof and premium audio system with in-dash 6-CD changer as standard equipment.

Also on Premier, heated leather-trimmed front seats include elegant perforated leather inserts, as well as 10-way power driver and six-way power passenger adjustment with memory to accommodate a variety of drivers and passengers in complete comfort.

The 2010 Mercury Mountaineer offers two engines: a 4.0-liter V-6 with 201 horsepower and 254 lb.-ft. of torque; and a 4.6-liter V-8 with 292 horsepower and 315 lb.-ft. of torque.

Mercury Mountaineer proves that capability and refinement can peacefully coexist. To aid in towing, the 2010 Mountaineer’s standard Trailer Sway Control works in conjunction with AdvanceTrac with Roll Stability Control. Trailer Sway Control determines from the yaw motion of the vehicle if the trailer is swaying and takes measures — such as applying precise braking or reduced engine torque — to help bring both vehicle and trailer under control.

A voice-activated navigation system with SIRIUS Travel Link lets 2010 Mountaineer owners access up-to-the-minute information and entertainment content through the vehicle’s navigation system. Information includes current gas prices, up-to-the-minute-traffic information, weather conditions, sports scores and movie listings.
