Review of the 2007 Mercury Grand Marquis

  • For buyers who want a large, upscale sedan with a V8, the 2007 Mercury Grand Marquis is worth a look. Most people, however, will prefer its more modern peers, which are better-equipped and better-handling.

  • Safety
  • Pros

    Spacious interior with room for six, comfortable ride, standard V8, good crash test scores, reasonable price.

  • Cons

    Dated interior design with mediocre materials, old-tech underpinnings make it less agile than competitors.

  • What's New for 2007

    Trim levels are simplified to GS and LS on the 2007 Mercury Grand Marquis. LS buyers can opt for the Palm Beach Edition Package, which bundles chrome wheels, cashmere leather seats, satin-finish faux aluminum interior trim, side airbags and heated side mirrors. Mercury has extended drivetrain warranty coverage to five years/60,000 miles.

Perrenial winner grand marquis

by on
Vehicle: 2007 Mercury Grand Marquis GS 4dr Sedan (4.6L 8cyl 4A)

This is my fourth Grand Marquis and I've averaged around 200,000 miles on the previous three. The reason that these Ford/Mercury autos are used for livery and police cars is comfort, fuel economy, longevity and value. Buy Japanese, or German instead? I think not. Generally my experience is relatively negative to foreign autos contrary to published opinion. My 1998 GM repair bill was under $3,000 for eight years of use while I averaged 25 miles per gallon on the highway. Everyone loves the room and comfort of these autos on a long trip. You could buy smaller and perhaps average another 15% better gas mileage but the repair bill could easily reach 300% more, relative to my experience.




A solid, traditional, reliable car

Vehicle: 2007 Mercury Grand Marquis GS 4dr Sedan (4.6L 8cyl 4A)

I find the official review from Edmunds a bit irresponsible! I fail to see the logic in urging folks not to want a so- called "throwback" of a car when the Grand Marquis is a solid, reliable US/Canadian vehicle that gets the job done in comfort and safety. Competitor cars have iffy build quality are costly to repair. Does Edmunds want us to pay more for something "new" just because newness is somehow better? I disagree! I have a 2008 BMW 5 series too and the iDrive is a mess, the dopey flipper shift knob gets in the way, parts break often and it's back to the $$$hop; it's constantly nagging at me too! A lousy personality I pay a fortune for. I'll take the familiar, old school Ford V8 anyday.




"grande" marquis

Vehicle: 2007 Mercury Grand Marquis GS 4dr Sedan (4.6L 8cyl 4A)

I owned a '93,'96,'97,'03 and now a 2007.Would I rebuy these beauties if the weren't an excellent car? gave the 93 to grandson,traded the '96 for the 07,sold the '97 to my son and sold the 03 when wife died.They were all superior performing cars and all got between 22 and 25 mpg.You can do no better at the price.




Very disappointed

Vehicle: 2007 Mercury Grand Marquis GS 4dr Sedan (4.6L 8cyl 4A)

Very disappointed with the quality vs. value. Wanted to get rid of it within 2 months, but now very upside down on loan (because a lousy quality vehicle) and now have to keep until loan is paid down! Which makes me dislike it more! Outside too big, inside too small, ride is very rough. Just stuck with a lousy car that I don't enjoy driving! The only positive thing about the car, it's been dependable. But so have my other cars, which makes us regret the day we bought this car. No wonder the car companies are going bankrupt, the quality is not worth what they're charging. As soon as it's driven away, it immediately drops in value $10,000?? But the new ones are still priced at $27,000??




More than happy

Vehicle: 2007 Mercury Grand Marquis GS 4dr Sedan (4.6L 8cyl 4A)

I bought my Marquis slightly used and at a huge discount. This car does everything right with a giant sized trunk, 6 passenger capacity and 21 mpg on average. Reliability has been perfect so far and I certainly appreciate the super low insurance rates. Being larger than average, the interior room is excellent and the safety rating is reassuring. This may be close to the last car I'll ever buy and I'm only 42. I hear all the stories about sloppy handling. Those people should get a Corvette. This car is designed for cruising and does so very well. This is basically a lincoln town car with a $25,000 rebate. All those cops, taxicab drivers and government employees can't be wrong.




2007 grand marquis, great road

Vehicle: 2007 Mercury Grand Marquis GS 4dr Sedan (4.6L 8cyl 4A)

This is my first Grand Marquis and I think it's a great car. People seem to want to talk about how it has a lack of handling with some roll in the corners or how it should look more sporty or its lack of power. This is a large semi luxury vehicle, it's not a race car. This is a great road car and when buying a nice comfortable vehicle these points are mute. If you want a sporty suspension with more power then doin't buy it, but if you want a vehicle that delivers a good ride, decent fuel economy (for it's size at 25 mpg highway) and plenty of room for the family at a reasonable price then this is the car for you.

What's New for 2007

Trim levels are simplified to GS and LS on the 2007 Mercury Grand Marquis. LS buyers can opt for the Palm Beach Edition Package, which bundles chrome wheels, cashmere leather seats, satin-finish faux aluminum interior trim, side airbags and heated side mirrors. Mercury has extended drivetrain warranty coverage to five years/60,000 miles.

Introduction

It's easy to dismiss the Grand Marquis as a dated car from an earlier era, but it's actually the best-selling car in Mercury's lineup. There's good reason for this: The Grand Marquis is still a lot of car for the money. For about $30,000, you can get a large, rear-wheel-drive, V8-powered sedan that's every bit as luxurious as a Lincoln Town Car but costs thousands less.

A slightly more upscale twin of the Ford Crown Victoria, the Mercury Grand Marquis has roots dating back to 1975. Updates over the years have helped mask its age, most notably a refresh in 2003 that saw the car get a stiffer frame, a revised front suspension and rack-and-pinion steering. Not only did the new frame improve the big sedan's ride quality and handling capabilities, it improved its crashworthiness -- and indeed the Mercury's safety ratings are impressive.

Drive the Grand Marquis back-to-back with modern cars like the Chrysler 300C, Hyundai Azera and Toyota Avalon, though, and it feels less agile and less refined. What's more, common features like stability control, DVD-based navigation or a high-end audio system are not available. If these items aren't on your list of requirements, however, and you simply want a large V8 sedan with an upscale ambiance that can comfortably accommodate four to five adults and a week's worth of luggage, the 2007 Mercury Grand Marquis is worth a look.

Body Styles, Trim Levels, and Options

A full-size sedan, the Mercury Grand Marquis comes in two trim levels -- GS and LS. Base GS models come with 16-inch steel wheels (with faux chrome wheel covers), air-conditioning, a CD player, a front bench seat with power adjustments for the driver, cruise control, full power accessories and keypad entry. The Grand Marquis LS adds alloy wheels, foglights, automatic climate control, leather upholstery, power seat adjustments for the front passenger, a leather-wrapped steering wheel, a rear-seat fold-down armrest, an auto-dimming rearview mirror, heated side mirrors and an overhead console with a compass and Homelink.

On the options list for the LS, you'll find stand-alone items like a moonroof, seat heaters and an upgraded audio system with a CD changer. There's also the Handling package, which provides a bump in power (thanks to a dual exhaust system), as well as an upgraded suspension for better handling. Or you can go for the Palm Beach Edition package, which includes chrome wheels, chrome-trimmed mirrors, cashmere leather seats embroidered with "Palm Beach" logos and satin-finish metallic interior trim.

Powertrains and Performance

Only one engine and transmission are offered on the 2007 Mercury Grand Marquis. Standard models use a 224-horsepower, 4.6-liter V8 and a four-speed automatic to put power to the rear wheels. Opt for the Handling package on the LS, and the same engine is upgraded to produce 239 hp, along with a boost in torque to 287 pound-feet (from 272). Fuel economy is respectable for a large V8-powered sedan -- expect about 17 mpg in the city and up to 25 mpg on the highway.

Safety

Four-wheel antilock disc brakes with electronic brakeforce distribution are standard on every Grand Marquis, and traction control is optional on the GS and standard on the LS. Power-adjustable pedals and front seat-mounted side airbags are optional on the LS, but side curtain airbags and stability control are not available. Other options you may want to consider on the LS include laminated security glass and a full-size spare tire. An alarm system is optional on both trims.

The Grand Marquis has scored well in National Highway Traffic Safety Administration crash tests. It rates a perfect five stars in frontal-impact crash protection and, when equipped with side airbags, rates five stars for front and rear side-impact safety as well (Without the bags, it gets four stars for front side-impact protection). The big sedan also earned the top rating of "Good" in frontal-offset crash testing conducted by the IIHS.

Interior Design and Special Features

A roomy cabin is one of the biggest selling points for the 2007 Mercury Grand Marquis, and adults will find plentiful head-, shoulder, hip- and legroom. Bench seating allows this big sedan to accommodate up to six people. A cavernous trunk of 20.6 cubic feet will swallow any luggage they might have with them. Controls and instrumentation are simple in design, though not particularly stylish, and some of the materials are low in quality.

Driving Impressions

Buyers seeking a traditional, rear-drive V8 American sedan with plenty of chrome trim will find the Grand Marquis to be a less expensive alternative to the pricey Town Car or the trendy 300C. True, it's not as refined as the Chrysler, but the Mercury's standard V8 provides plenty of acceleration in just about any situation, and its forgiving ride spares occupants from harsh impacts over bumps. The car's large size and aged chassis can make it unwieldy around turns, but the car's relatively responsive steering helps drivers keep it on track.
