Edmunds' Expert Review

Want a chrome-encrusted, rear-drive V8-powered American sedan without the premium charged for a Lincoln? The Grand Marquis fits the bill perfectly.

vehicle overview

If you've been pinching your pennies to buy a new full-size rear-drive V8-powered American sedan, we hereby direct you to the Mercury Grand Marquis. It's mechanically identical to the Ford Crown Victoria and similar to the Lincoln Town Car; Ford, Lincoln and Mercury are the only brands building such cars these days. Decades-old technology allows Mercury to keep the prices low, and the car is a favorite among people who need space and don't want a minivan or sport-ute.

For 2002, the Grand Marquis is available in standard GS, sporty LSE or luxurious LS Ultimate trim. Base GS models include all the family-sedan basics, like air conditioning, a stereo with cassette player, remote keyless entry, ABS, power windows and locks, cruise control and tilt steering wheel. Also standard are unexpected items like traction control and power adjustable pedals. Leather seating and a CD player are optional.

Buy an LSE, and you can look forward to more power and torque from the 4.6-liter V8 engine (235 horsepower instead of 220), rear air suspension, larger rear stabilizer bar, lace-spoked alloy wheels, five-passenger leather-upholstered seating with a center console and floor-mounted shift lever and a suspension tuned for better handling. LSE also boasts cabin upgrades like automatic climate control, audio and climate controls on the steering wheel, a HomeLink universal transmitter, illuminated visor mirrors and an auto-dimming rearview mirror with an integrated compass.

Step up to the LS Ultimate and luxury awaits in the form of special alloy wheels, a power passenger seat, digital instrumentation, a wood and leather-trimmed steering wheel and premium sound. Leather is a no-charge option on the LS Ultimate. Options on all Grand Marks include a new-for-2002 trunk organizer and a full-size spare wheel. LSE and LS Ultimate can be equipped with a six-disc CD changer.

Changes for 2002 are limited. Last year's LS trim level is available only in LSE and LS Ultimate format. Antilock brakes and traction control now come standard on all Grand Marks, while revised cupholders and a new front seat storage pouch improve the cabin. A new trunk organizer is optional across the board. Three new colors are also added this year.

The Grand Marquis was never a slouch in terms of acceleration, with the 4.6-liter V8 engine pumping out 220 horsepower while still managing 25 miles per gallon on the highway. The only transmission offered is a four-speed automatic. In stock trim, this Merc drives and handles like you would expect a big American sedan to. It's comfortable, but it's all too happy to float around over bumps. We recommend the slightly stiffer and more powerful LSE to anyone who enjoys backcountry highways more than mind-numbing interstates during road trips.

And if you do plan to haul around a family, you can sleep better at night knowing that the Grand Marquis scores well in National Highway Traffic Safety Administration crash tests. With a crash-severity sensor, safety belt pre-tensioners, dual-stage airbags and seat-position sensors, the Grand Mark protects occupants like few smaller cars can. Added standards for 2002 like ABS, traction control and power adjustable pedals mean this big Mercury can avoid obstacles better in the first place.

The Grand Marquis is one of the best-selling cars in Florida. Why? Because it looks and feels just like a Lincoln for lots less than what a Town Car or Continental costs. If this appeals to you, the Grand Marquis is right up your alley.

2002 Highlights

Antilock brakes and traction control now come standard on all Grand Marks, while revised cupholders and a new front seat storage pouch improve the cabin. No-charge leather is available on LS Ultimate models. LS Ultimate and LSE models get standard steering wheel controls for the stereo and climate system, and a new trunk organizer is optional across the board. Three new colors are added this year.

AAA Excellent Car
This car handles like a dream. I don't know where some of the people get off giving it a bad review. I am 43 years old and have driven everything from Beetles to Vettes. This is a great car for the money, runs strong and mileage is fine. Especially for a big car. This car looks and runs great.
Pleasantly Surprised
I needed a reliable second car for the family and the dealership had this cream-puff on the lot. Garage kept, prestine condition. Have had it two weeks and am enjoying the 45 mile round trip commute to work. Surprisingly great gas milage, I use premium in the tank. Smoother than silk ride, corners like a dream. I definitely feel safe having my family in the car. I forsee many excellent years in this beauty. By the way, this is my first Ford...swore I would never own one...previously only owned Japanese or German...making a believer out of me.
Cushy gas hog has issues
We were so excited to get into this buttery ride only to have our Marquis buzz killed when the fuel pump went out at 47,000 miles after only having it a month & one 400 mile trip under our belts. Another surprise was the terrible city mileage, much lower than the stated 17 mpg, around 10 mpg. Highway ok w/25 mpg. As I've seen mentioned I have to agree the lack of a center console leaves one stuffing everything into the paltry pockets given in the front seats or on the floor. So despite the wonderful smooth ride the overall economy leaves me wishing we'd shelled out for a Camry etc. PS.Loaner car during fuel pump was a Sable '05. It was a gas hog also (15mph?!). Ford/Mercury needs to wake up
Safe, Secure & Comfortable
I had a 1985 Grand Marquis LS and it was great until a 16 year old drunk driver smashed into the driver's side at over 50 mph. The car was totaled, my life was saved. I now own a 2002 Grand Marquis LS Ultimate, purchased new, and I couldn't be more satisfied with an auto. Gas mileage in town is 21 and on the hwy it's 26, great for a huge engine like the Grand Marquis sports. I feel so safe and comfortable in this car. I just wish the newer models had the same comfortable headrests that my 2002 has in place. I have 90,000 miles on the odometer and the car still drives like it did when it was brand new...still looks great too! A tremendous car for the money!!

Should I lease or buy a 2002 Mercury Grand Marquis?

Is it better to lease or buy a car? Ask most people and they'll probably tell you that car buying is the way to go. And from a financial perspective, it's true, provided you're willing to make higher monthly payments, pay off the loan in full and keep the car for a few years. Leasing, on the other hand, can be a less expensive option on a month-to-month basis. It's also good if you're someone who likes to drive a new car every three years or so.
