New or Significantly Altered Models

2008 Mercury Mariner
The 2008 Mariner features updated styling inside and out. The most notable changes are to the front and rear fascias. Most notably, the front end features a larger waterfall-style grille and more prominent powerdome on the hood. Outside of a new electric power steering system, the chassis and powertrains are largely the same.
2008 Mercury Sable
The large Montego was renamed Sable for the 2008 model year. More than just a name change, the Sable features a larger displacement engine with a horsepower boost of 60 hp. Still offered in FWD and AWD configurations, a six speed automatic transmission is standard across the line.
