Description

This 2008 Mercury Grand Marquis handles like the U.S.S. Nimitz; if you yearn for your dad's 1970s-era land yacht, you will love this ride! When is a car retro without trying to be retro? When it's the 2008 Mercury Grand Marquis. Based on an automotive platform design that dates back about 30 years, the Marquis features rear-wheel drive, a live rear axle and body-on-frame construction -- the latter of which is a design attribute kept alive in modern cars solely by the Grand Marquis and its relatives. The 2008 Grand Marquis is huge and has a history of rock-solid safety performance. Anyone in this country who has at some point ridden in the backseat of a Grand Marquis or Crown Victoria taxi (or perhaps a cop car) knows how large the interior and trunk are. Hip and shoulder room are particularly impressive thanks to the ultra-wide body. This 2008 Mercury Grand Marquis is an LS model which comes with air-conditioning, a CD player, a front bench seat with power adjustments for the driver and front passenger, cruise control, automatic headlamps, full power accessories, 16-inch alloy wheels, fog lights, automatic climate control, leather upholstery, a leather-wrapped steering wheel, a rear-seat fold-down armrest, an auto-dimming rear view mirror, heated side mirrors and an overhead console with a compass, Homelink garage door opener and keypad entry . The Grand Marquis has a 4.6-liter V8 coupled to a four-speed automatic that sends 224 horsepower and 275 pound-feet of torque to the rear wheels. Fuel economy is on par with other large V8-powered sedans, with 2008 EPA estimates at 15 mpg city/23 mpg highway. The Grand Marquis has scored well in tests by the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration. It rates a perfect five stars in frontal-impact crash protection and, when equipped with side airbags, it earns five stars for front and rear side-impact safety as well. (Without the bags, it gets four stars.) The big Mercury sedan also earned the top rating of "Good" in frontal-offset crash testing conducted by the Insurance Institute for Highway Safety. This vehicle has antilock disc brakes and traction control. Like the interior, driving the 2008 Mercury Grand Marquis is none too different from piloting one from 15 years ago…or even 15 years before that. Due to the vehicle's size, pillow-like suspension and low-effort steering, it has all the road feel of a two-mast schooner. The V8 engine provides plenty of acceleration for any situation, particularly on the highway where the Grand Marquis is best suited. The Grand Marquis has a wide, spacious interior that can seat up to six in a pinch. Controls and instruments are simple and easy to decipher. The trunk is quite large, with 20.6 cubic feet of space capable of swallowing copious amounts of luggage or several sets of golf clubs.

The interior is so big, you can put all your children in the back and not even hear them fighting. The engine is so powerful, it doesn’t travel to your destination. It pulls your destination to you. The trunk is larger than your first apartment. And a lot cleaner. Chuck Norris drives a 2008 Grand Marquis. Seriously, it’s a great car. It put a smile on my face every time I drove it. And Frederick is a super nice guy. You can’t go wrong here.
