Review of the 1997 Mercury Mountaineer

  • Info is not yet available.

  • Safety
  • Pros

    Attractive, Ford Explorer-based SUV promises durability, great cargo space, and go-anywhere ability

  • Cons

    Can't be had with Ford's outstanding SOHC V-6 engine. The Mountaineer's badging is a bit garish for a rugged SUV.

  • What's New for 1997

    The all-new Mercury Mountaineer is yet another entrant into the booming luxury sport-utility market. Based on the wildly successful Ford Explorer, the Mountaineer is intended to appeal to outdoor sophisticates rather than true roughnecks. Distinguishing characteristics of the Mountaineer include four-wheel antilock brakes, a pushrod V8 engine and optional all-wheel drive.
