Review of the 2001 Mercury Mountaineer

  • Ford Explorer's upscale twin is sorely in need of a redesign, which will come next year.

  • Safety
  • Pros

    Powerful V6 and V8 engines, good selection of features, four-wheel-drive versatility.

  • Cons

    Few differences between Mountaineer and Ford Explorer, poor fuel economy with V8 engine.

  • What's New for 2001

    Not much changes for 2001, as Mercury's Explorer clone has a new child safety-seat tether anchor system. The rest of the vehicle is all carryover.

Wrong chassis for an suv

by on
Vehicle: 2001 Mercury Mountaineer 2WD 4dr SUV (4.0L 6cyl 5A)

Dependable, very powerful engine, but do not get that secure,always in control feel, one gets with a newer and different chassis Suv. Wrong purchase for me!




Stump pulling torque

Vehicle: 2001 Mercury Mountaineer 2WD 4dr SUV (4.0L 6cyl 5A)

After driving various sedans and sports cars for the last 12 years, this is a refreshing luxury. The ability to jump into any traffic & be able to merge seamlessly is a pleasure. I also like to be high up to see all the traffic around me. This also offers me the ability to haul all of my clients & all our stuff.




Not a bad vehicle

Vehicle: 2001 Mercury Mountaineer 2WD 4dr SUV (4.0L 6cyl 5A)

I recently purchased this vehicle and even though I have only had it a short while I am pretty pleased. This is my first SUV and it is a nice change after driving a Toyota Corolla for three years. I love the leather seats and all the cool gadgets like service updates and the mileage updates.
