The 2008 Mercury Mountaineer offers an expressive alternative in the SUV market, delivering impressive driving dynamics, refined interior choices along with premium convenience and class-leading safety. It escapes the mainstream with many package choices that allow consumers to express their individuality and satisfy their personal needs.
For 2008, Mountaineer also addresses consumers’ tech-savvy wishes with the addition of Mercury Sync™ – an industry-exclusive, voice-activated and hands-free in-car communications and entertainment system (late availability).
Developed in collaboration with Microsoft, the system fully integrates mobile phones and media players into the vehicle using Bluetooth technology and USB connectivity. Mountaineer’s navigation system is improved for 2008 as well, now offering voice-activation capability for greater ease of operation.
Another industry-first feature that debuts later in the model year on Mountaineer is Ford Motor Company’s exclusive capless fuel filling system.
Seven new package options are offered on Mountaineer in 2008, ranging from a selection of Third-Row Seat Packages to the unique look of the Mountaineer Chrome Package.
Mountaineer is available in two arrays: Mountaineer and Mountaineer Premier. Both are available with either 4×2 or all-wheel drive. All Mountaineers are produced at the Louisville Assembly Plant in Louisville, Ky.
