2003 MERCURY MARAUDER -- RARE FULL SIZE MUSCLE SEDAN
From 2003 to 2004, Ford resurrected the Marauder name as a high-performance
version of the Mercury Grand Marquis sedan. Although the Mercury division
was most directly a competitor to Buick (and before that, Oldsmobile), the
design of this Marauder drew many parallels to the 1994--1996 Chevrolet
Impala SS and the later 2006-present Dodge Charger SRT-8 in being a
contemporary full-size "muscle sedan", and both being derived from a police
vehicle: the Marauder from the Ford Crown Victoria, and the Impala SS from
the Chevrolet Caprice. The Marauder had a naturally aspirated 4.6 L V8
DOHC Ford Modular engine producing 302 hp and 318 ft·lbf of torque. In
contrast to the Grand Marquis, the interior of the Marauder featured front
bucket seats and a floor shifter with a center console; leather seats were
standard. Instead of the simulated wood trim seen in the Grand Marquis, the
Marauder substituted simulated satin aluminum trim in its place. The
instrument cluster was Marauder-specific, with satin aluminum gauges (with
a 140-mph speedometer borrowed from the Ford Police Interceptor) and the
pressed electrical board to control them are model-exclusive. To make room
for the tachometer, the oil-pressure gauges and voltmeter were moved to the
center console. The 2003--2004 Marauder sales fell short of corporate
forecasts, and after a production run of 11,052 vehicles, the Marauder was
discontinued at the end of 2004. For comparison, Mercury produced 179,723
examples of its Grand Marquis counterpart during the same time. The number
of Marauders produced per year in each color breaks down as follows: 2003
-- Total: 7838 328 Dark Pearl Blue, 417 Silver Birch, 7093 Black. 2004 --
Total: 3214, 980 Dark Toreador Red, 997 Silver Birch, 1237 Black. So, you
see here a great edition of a Mercury, not only a rare Maurauder but a
full size muscle sedan as well. Thanks very much for viewing this 2003
Mercury Marauder sedan.
The Mercury Marauder was the name of three different automobiles made by
the Mercury division of Ford Motor Company. During the 1960s, the Marauder
was introduced as the high-performance model of the full-size Mercury line;
its Ford equivalent was the Galaxie. From 2003, the Marauder nameplate was
revived as a high-performance variant of the full-size Grand Marquis. After
lower than expected sales, the Marauder was discontinued at the end of the
2004 model year.

2013 Shelby Mustang GT500 vs Mercury Marauder
The GT 500 is on stock tires and the Marauder is on Drag Radials. Finally
got the Shelby down to a VERY traction limited 12.1 @ ~120 mph with a 1.999
60' time. Not bad for street tires. Micky Thompson Street radials and 19"
rims are on the way, but may not see the track until next spring.
