The Mariner is a Mercury version of the popular Ford Escape. This SUV offers a combination of nimble handling, comfortable ride, and an optional 3.0L V-6 for decent performance. The standard 2.5L I-4 is available with a 5-speed manual or 6-speed automatic. Only the 6-speed automatic is available with the V-6. The Mariner is also offered with a Hybrid powertrain. By alternately running off batteries and the gasoline engine, the Mariner Hybrid boasts a 33 mpg rating in city driving. Although the Mariner's AWD system is optimized for on-road traction, it is capable of light duty off-road excursions. Customers looking to optimize fuel economy can choose a FWD only version of any model.

What Changed:

The Mariner adds new optional safety and convenience features. A parking assistance feature helps the driver steer in to parking spaces. The system also helps compensate for steering pull on uneven road surfaces.
