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


Review

First thing first. This car can stamp
out any Impala on the road. However,
the Imp was built almost ten years ago
and still is a worthy adversary. To me
that doesn't make sense. This car
should have been 360 horsepower more
low end torque and equipped with a five
speed automatic/auto stick. Then I
would be able to understand Ford's
ingenious advertising scheme for this
car (not!)Which we all know was no
advertisement at all. Because you
wouldn't have to advertise a car like
that. But that didn't happen did it?
And that is why this is the last year
the beloved Marauder will be built.
What a shame!!


Best Features

Nice Feet! 18"chrome on BFG's. Beautiful exhaust note. When little kid's point and look. Trust the kids folks. This car looks much better on the street than it does in print!


Worst Features

Interior door handles are so cheap they seemingly can be pulled right off the hinges. The Focus has a better premium sound system. What's up with that?? HID lights. More Horses.

Review

The hype that this mercury is in the
lines of any muscle car just isn't
true. The 302hp engine does not do it,
poor acceleration, good for high speed
driving but 0-60 not impessive. That's
what the "muscle cars" were all about.
I still have a 1971 chevy nova small
block that will leabve this mercury in
the dust. Its basically a souped up
Grand Marquis with a high $35000 price
tag and I regret buying it.


Best Features

Interior arrangement OK.


Worst Features

Start again, new body style and less gross weight with more torque.

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


Review

Great fun to drive car. I traded in
my 1997 Crown Vic with 210,000 miles
on a 04 Marauder and couldnt be
happier, plus Merc is offering 0%
interest for 5 years. Great exhaust
note but not too loud. The car is
basically a new Crown Vic Sport with
better engine, no woodgrain, much
better suspension, and bling bling
wheels. Most people have never heard
of a Marauder which is a plus in my
book. Plus it tows my 3000 lb trailer
with no problem. Should be easy to
repair and maintain since it is
basically a Crown Vic. Only one brand
and model of tires available to fit
rear (which might be an expensive
proposistion several years from now).


Best Features

Two tone interior - I got the light flint gray seats but the rest of the interior is black. Controls on steering wheel. Nice cornering lights and foglights. Very comfortable seats. Nice console with one exposed power port and one concealed power port. Great looking floor shifter.


Worst Features

Needs same size tires front and back. Redo the subwoofer. The wheels are a little much (this is my company car after all). Take the chrome Merc badging off the grill.

Review

The Marauder is even better for 04 -
with new colors, a beefier
transmission, and more agressive tune!
Sweet!


Best Features

Smooth power!
