2009 Mercury Grand Marquis Road Test

2009 Mercury Grand Marquis LS Engine: 4.6 liter SOHC V8 (224 horsepower/275 ft. lbs. of torque) 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. R.I.P. Mercury 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.

2006 Mercury Grand Marquis LS Start Up, Quick Tour, & Rev With Exhaust View - 74K
2006 Mercury Grand Marquis LS Spammers are having insane fun commenting on this video. For the time being, I'm disabling comments until things cool off & hopefully I can re-enable comments to it again. If any of you have legitimate questions about this car, just send me a message in the meantime ;) Sorry for the winds, Hurricane Irene was blowing in some mild winds that day. This one pack Ford's old 4.6L SOHC V8 making only 224 HP which is pumped to the Rear wheels through a 4 speed auto. Pretty much the most old school sedan that you can get & they are one of the toughest full-size sedans that you can get. But don't expect sophisticated handling, top notch interior quality or brisk acceleration.

1997 Mercury Grand Marquis with 5-speed Manual Transmission, First Drive
A couple months ago, my friend Rob and I picked up a 1997 Mercury Grand Marquis with 66k miles for $350. It had a major coolant leak and had been neglected for a while, sitting in a cul de sac and covered in grime. We COULD have just fixed it and sold it and turned a quick profit of a grand or so but we did what any right-minded hooligan would do... we threw a 5-speed in it! On the first test drive we hit the fuel cut off when the speedo hit 100 MPH but we were only going about 30-40 due to the difference in speed sensors. On this second test drive (but the first one where we could wind the car out) the speed sensor was disconnected. The 5 speed Grand Marquis Project: Stock 4.6 liter v8, TR3650-5 speed from a 2006 Mustang GT, Fidanza alum flywheel, 05 v6 Mustang Driveshaft with an extra 7 inches TIG welded into it, fabbed hydraulic clutch, dual Flowmaster Exhaust. A brake pedal from a Crown Victoria and this car's brake pedal were modified to fit next to each other and offer a natural driving position. We installed a generic master cylinder (attached with a bracket to the brake master) and a clutch line along the intake on the driver's side of the engine down the wiring loom on the passenger's side in order to plumb the slave cylinder and everything looks pretty much stock from under the hood! The transmission tunnel had to be cut quite a bit in order to fit the linkages and levers from the newer transmission and they intrude into the passenger compartment. We're going to put some sound deadening down and secure it with the rear floor air blower ducting that has been modified to fit over the entire assembly. In the end, the carpet should install like it was from the factory with a small hole cut for the shifter and a small boot secured to the carpet. With the stock 2.73 open differential this car is quite slow. That will be rectified in the next couple of weeks when we find a 3.55 LSD and drop it in. We'll also be getting rid of the pesky automatic shifter and button up a few issues with sensors and interior components after it's running and driving reliably. Oh yeah, the A/C blows cold also!
