2009 Mercury Grand Marquis Road Test
2009 Mercury Grand Marquis LS
Engine: 4.6 liter SOHC V8 (224 horsepower/275 ft. lbs. of
Transmission: 4-speed automatic w/OD
Rear Wheel Drive
City/Highway MPG: 15/23
This is a full road test of my mom's 2009 Mercury Grand Marquis, to show
how it performs in different situations, and to identify any problems that
may exist. I would normally do this after having the car in the shop for
repairs, but in this case I am driving the car around just to get a better
idea of how it feels on the road.
I drove it for about 2 hours and came away very impressed. It is
comfortable, refined, solid, and very agile. With only 224 horsepower, one would think
that it's underpowered compared to its V6 competitors. It's not. The
torquey V8 will pin you to your seat when gunned from a dead stop, and once
you're up to speed, there is always plenty of power in reserve. The big V8
has a deep, burly muscle car sound when revved, but at low RPMs it is muted
and unobtrusive in the cabin. The 4 speed automatic isn't much of a
handicap with the V8's torque curve, although it prefers not to downshift
into 1st or 2nd unless you mash the pedal to the floor. If you drive with a
light foot, and keep RPMs below 2000, you can easily attain 20+ mpg in
everyday driving situations. On the highway, the car is very efficient, due
to its tall overdrive gear that keeps the RPMs low.
The four wheel ABS disc brakes provide adequate stopping power, with
reasonably good pedal feel. Stopping distance is short in an emergency,
although the front end dives toward the ground.
The Marquis handles very well for a big car, even though it is not equipped
with the Handling Package (this option was discontinued around 2007). In
hard cornering, body roll is minimal and the Michelin tires provide plenty
of grip. The rack and pinion steering setup leaves feel somewhat numb, but
it's also pleasantly light and very accurate (especially on the highway).
Mercury obviously wanted to leave some "slop" in the steering, so the old
folks won't think they're driving a Ferrari :) If you must throw the car
around, it is safe and predictable, and can be quite fun for a boat.
Comfort is where the car really shines. The ride is very smooth, and gives
you the feeling of "floating" over bumps. This is great on the highway,
where little road imperfections are ironed out, but not so good on bumpy
back roads. If you hit potholes or man hole covers, the car pogos up and
down a couple times before settling. I enjoy this type of ride, but many
people do not. Inside, the car is very quiet, and road noise is minimal.
The leather bench seats are supremely comfortable and roomy, even after a
couple of hours.
Overall I am really pleased with how the car drives, and it just happens to
be a car I would consider buying used.
and all the Panther platform cars that have been discontinued.
The song at the beginning is Cradle of Love by Billy Idol, one of my
favorite 80s songs.

Heres the second part to my 05 mercury 4.6liter v8. After the last video i
installed kooks longtube stainless headers, all 4 cat deletes and removed
the flowmaster 40 series mufflers and put flowmasters racing 10 series. It
still has 2.5 mandrel bent stainless front to rear with highflow x-pipe and
polished stainless tips. And lastly i had a pretty insane tune truly
custome made..let me know what you think
2003 Mercury Grand Marquis LS Ultimate Edition Start Up, In Depth Tour, and Test Drive
In this video I give a full tour and test drive of a 2003 Mercury Grand
Marquis LS Ultimate Edition. I take viewers on a close look through the
interior and exterior of this car while showing details, over viewing of
features, and noting unique styling cues to the vehicle itself. I show the
car idling as well as take it on a thorough test drive through the city and
highway on various surfaces. A thorough drive of this car designed to give
others a greater overall appreciation of the vehicle.

Got bored with the 11" Magnaflows, wanted more idle and low end thunder.
Got some #24215 Dynomax Bullets installed.
Sounds great to me so far. Enjoy the various clips. These clips are with
under 300 miles on the new mufflers.
