Review of the 2004 Mercury Marauder

  • Although nimble for its size, the Marauder lacks the kind of tire-melting power necessary to qualify it as the rebirth of the American muscle car.

  • Safety
  • Pros

    Handling that belies its size, the ride and comfort of a Town Car, strong straightline performance once engine speed builds, high safety ratings.

  • Cons

    Lack of low-end thrust, poor lateral support in seating.

  • What's New for 2004

    A new heavy-duty four-speed automatic comes standard for quicker shifts along with traction control and an upgraded audio system. Dark Red and Silver are newly available exterior colors. The 4.6-liter V8 now comes with dual knock sensors for improved engine response at low speeds.

Vehicle: 2004 Mercury Marauder 4dr Sedan (4.6L 8cyl 4A)

To date I have never done anything to her other than normal maintenance work you would expect. Tires, brakes a couple of light bulbs. For it's weight @ 4200 lbs or 2tons the car has plenty of power and handels better than you would figure on a full size 4 door. The ride and comfort for a full size muscle car is exceptional to say the least. Many changes were made to it so it would stand out above the Grand Marquies. No more conventional stearing has rack and pinion. Forged control arms with a better front and rear suspension and larger sway bars. Heavy duty transmision and coolers for it. Mustang rear end gears and so much more.




Best car

I've owned alot of cars over the years, and this is one of the best. I wish they were still made. You can't beat the combination of performance and comfort.




This is a great car!

Overall, I love this car, however there are a couple of things I think Ford missed. Obviously, they could've put the supercharger on the thing. I also think that it would be nice to have a suspension adjustment switch. It rides very nicely most of the time, but when you're on a bumpy road, you feel it! It would be nice to be able to soften up the suspension a bit when you're just not in a performance type of a mood.




Still crazy in love

Ordered my'04 Silver Birch in Oct.'03 (after owning a Crown Vic that just made me yawn.)WOW! Not the same animal...the difference between a house cat and a tiger! Reliability is suberb. A daily driver, it performs flawlessly. Love the handling that takes me through the twisties with ease. It's just plain ol' FUN to drive. It's striking exterior and throaty exhaust note still turns heads. After all these years still get a thrill jumping behind the wheel and firing it up. With low production numbers over 2 model years, many devoted owners keep in touch via internet forums and regional meets. For gearheads, this car is a dream. Wake it up...and hear the tiger roar!




Dream to own and drive

Vehicle: 2004 Mercury Marauder 4dr Sedan (4.6L 8cyl 4A)

This car is a dream if you are interested in performance. It has the power to merge into traffic on the freeway and the power to pass other vehicles on 2 lane roads. I am getting about 23 MPG on the highway and about 20 MPG in the city. It is so comfortable that I can drive this car for 350 miles without stopping and not get tired. There is plenty of room in the back seat for your passengers and there is a center fold down armrest in the back seat. The visibility from to the outside from inside the "cockpit" is excellent and all the gauges are easy to see. The console makes a handy storage area but unfortunately neither it nor the glove compartment lock. I love this car.

Vehicle: 2004 Mercury Marauder 4dr Sedan (4.6L 8cyl 4A)

Bought my 2nd one in 2004. Racked up 70,000 miles on the first one with no major issues. Paint does scratch easily on both years. Does not handle like a large platform, long wheel base provides the ride. Dual tuned exhaust provides the sound. Dual overhead cam power plant provides the mid range power.It is a bit slow of the line for a 300+ HP. Fortunately a number of houses provide some power enhancements for the vehicle for kid in us. I am somewhat a younger Marauder owner and would have preferred a better sound package and IP. Cup holders are not very good, like you get a chance to use them when hot rodding. Will bring you in to the dark side. High tire expense. Gas mileage is excellent
