Edmunds' Expert Review

The 2009 Mercury Grand Marquis is old, handles like the U.S.S. Nimitz and is outdone by a variety of equally large, safe and powerful competitors -- including Mercury's own Sable. Only those who yearn for 1970s-era land yachts need apply.

vehicle overview

The Mercury Grand Marquis is so old... "How old is it?" It's so old, its platform debuted when Jimmy Carter was president. It's so old, a cassette deck is an optional extra. It's so old, the Grand Marquis and its relatives are the only cars still built using body-on-frame construction. It's so old, Ed McMahon will soon respond, "Yessir, that's old."

So the Grand Marquis is advancing in years, but some oldies are goodies, right? Well, its old-school approach does have a few benefits, like its robust simplicity and cheap maintenance costs (which have made it and its Crown Victoria twin a favorite among the nation's livery and law-enforcement communities). But there's a reason cars are no longer built like this big old Mercury -- actually, there are quite a few reasons. Thanks to the marvels of modern vehicle design, Ford's newer full-size sedans manage to offer as much interior room while taking up less real estate on the road. And by virtue of more sophisticated engineering, all offer a vastly superior driving experience with better handling and body control.

For those who are not commercial-fleet buyers, the 2009 Mercury Grand Marquis' main selling points are its wide-body interior space, rock-solid safety scores and low price. Anyone who has ever taken a ride in a Grand Marquis or Crown Vic taxicab (or perhaps less fortunately, police cruiser) knows how large the interior is. Hiproom and shoulder room are particularly impressive. You should also have noticed that the trunk is only slightly smaller than a Smart car.

But let's compare the Grand Marquis to Mercury's other, thoroughly modern, full-size sedan: the Mercury Sable. This Taurus clone's trunk is actually a tad larger than the Grand Marquis' trunk; its rear-seat head- and legroom are more generous; and its crash test scores are identical. Plus the Sable hits the registers for about the same price and has a similarly powerful, but more fuel-efficient, V6 engine. It also has a much nicer interior, a wider array of available features and is much easier and less cumbersome to drive. We could go on.

The 2009 Mercury Grand Marquis' longtime sibling, the Ford Crown Victoria, is now sold only to fleet buyers, meaning folks who still want a throwback rear-drive large sedan must stick with the Mercury or throw down a few more bucks for the related Lincoln Town Car. But we urge you to not still want such a throwback rear-drive large sedan. Other full-size sedans, like the Sable and Taurus, should better meet or exceed your car-buying needs, while others, like the Chrysler 300, Hyundai Azera and Toyota Avalon, are also worth considering.

Trim levels & features

The 2009 Mercury Grand Marquis is a full-size sedan in one trim level known as LS. Standard equipment includes 17-inch alloy wheels, rear air suspension, keyless entry and exterior keypad entry, auto on/off headlamps, foglamps, cruise control, full power accessories, automatic climate control, an auto-dimming rearview mirror, a power 40/20/40-split front bench seat, leather upholstery, a leather-wrapped steering wheel and a CD player.

Options include chrome-clad wheels, heated front seats, a leather/wood steering wheel with audio and climate controls, power-adjustable pedals and a "dual media" stereo with a cassette and CD player.

2009 Highlights

For 2009, the Mercury Grand Marquis now has just one trim level, the LS.

Performance & mpg

The rear-wheel-drive 2009 Grand Marquis is powered by a 4.6-liter V8 coupled to a four-speed automatic transmission. Output is 224 horsepower and 275 pound-feet of torque. Fuel economy is 15 mpg city/23 mpg highway and 18 mpg combined, notably less than other large sedans.

Safety

Standard safety equipment includes antilock disc brakes, traction control and front-seat side airbags. Stability control and side curtain airbags are not offered.

Despite missing a few safety features, the Grand Marquis nevertheless has scored well in tests by the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration. It rates a perfect five stars in frontal-impact crash protection, and when equipped with side airbags, it earns five stars for front and rear side-impact safety as well. The big Mercury sedan also earned the top rating of "Good" in frontal-offset crash testing conducted by the Insurance Institute for Highway Safety.

Driving

Like the interior, driving the 2009 Mercury Grand Marquis is none too different from piloting one from 15 years ago...or even 15 years before that. Due to the vehicle's size, pillow-like suspension and low-effort steering, it has all the road feel of a pontoon boat. These may seem like positives to some folks, but quite simply, newer full-size sedans are easier to maneuver and better to drive, while still offering safe structures and comfortable rides. On the upside, the standard V8 provides plenty of acceleration for most driving situations.

Interior

The Grand Marquis has a wide, spacious interior that can seat up to six in a pinch. Nevertheless, the rear seat is matched or surpassed in roominess by newer, better-driving full-size sedans. Controls and instruments are simple and easy to decipher, but the overall design is dated and some controls are difficult to reach. If you've taken a cab to the airport in the last 15 years, you already know the trunk is huge, with 20.6 cubic feet of space capable of swallowing copious amounts of luggage or several sets of golf clubs.

Terrific Value In A Traditional Car
hpr2,08/01/2011
I've owned 12 Crown Victoria and Grand Marquis sedans since 1989. I came across a 2009 Grand Marquis LS Ultimate Collection with just 8.400 miles on June 1, 2011. This car is not only the best full size Ford product I've ever owned, but the BEST car I've ever owned ! Say all you want about being dated, but these cars were a salesman's dream....no failure along the side of the road. Ever. The evolution from 2004 to 2009 was a continued improvement in ride and transmission driveability, shift points, etc. I've just retired and feel set for many years to come. Remember the "special feel of an Oldsmobile" ? As long as I can, I will have the "special feel of a full size Ford product".
Trunk lock
mirliyaqat Alikhan,06/28/2010
The trunk lock of the car is going bad in 55k miles. This is happening in almost all of this model. Please look into this matter.The Air condition electronic switch is going bad at 40k which need to be look into it. Thanks
Help on gas mileage
robert crawford,08/08/2010
it handles well and the overall performance is great except for the gas mileage which is between 14-15 miles per gallon. I average driving about equal city and distant and have also tried high test gas to see if this would improve my mileage but to no avail. please give me so ideas to increase the gas mileage as i have a 1996 ford truck that does this well. thank you
Great Car For Tall Drivers
DavidW9819,07/11/2015
I'm 6'3" and 300 lbs., and most cars made since 2000 are WAY too small to accommodate a man my size. Not so with the 2009 Grand Marquis. I have more headroom and legroom in this car than I'll ever need, although the back seat is a bit cramped. That's not an issue for me, as I rarely have any passengers in the car with me, and if I did odds are they'd be a lot smaller than me and just fine with the rear seat accommodations. I bought this car in 2011 for less than 1/2 the original MSRP and something like 27 K on the odometer because it was a fleet vehicle and the Grand Marquis was slated to go out of production that year. In the four years I've owned this car, the only maintenance costs I've had are a new set of tires and regular oil changes. I wouldn't even had to purchase new tires if the ones that were on the car when I purchased it hadn't dry-rotted. (I live in the West, and the desert sun and heat rots rubber like you wouldn't believe.) The steering column shaft was replaced under recall by the local Ford dealership in April 2015 even though my car is six years old, so kudos to Ford for having the integrity to stand behind its products even though they've discontinued the Mercury nameplate. The only downside of the car are the low (around 11) MPG's, but that's probably because I do mostly city driving and run the A/C (terrific, by the way) 8-9 months of the year. Fortunately, my round trip mileage to work is less than 10 miles, so even with gas currently at $3.15/gallon locally, the low MPG isn't really an issue for me. I'm sure that the fuel economy would probably double if I drove on the interstate more often. The 2009 Grand Marquis is one of two vehicles (the other being the Ford Ranger) that I wish Ford hadn't discontinued. Both are reliable, low maintenance vehicles that will easily go 200,000 miles with proper care. Hey Ford, how about making more vehicles without all the latest gadgets for us old guys?

Should I lease or buy a 2009 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.
