Find Used Mercury Cars in Utah

Mercury is a division of Ford Motor Company, and is marketed as a more upscale vehicle then Ford. It has engineered unique styling special features to make Mercury vehicles be more desirable. It all started in the 1930s, when Henry Ford's son saw an opportunity to create an additional brand within the Ford business. It was a chance to offer a vehicle somewhere between everyman Fords and the premium luxury vehicles. The new division, named by Edsel, the son, was named after a Roman mythological god. The Mercury Eight was its first car; it did well on the market. Production of this model was stopped during World War II. In 1945, Ford combined its newest brand with one of its oldest, Lincoln. Lincoln-Mercury dealerships were populated by famous vehicles. In the 1960s the Comet and Meteor vehicles were introduced. The Mercury Cougar, a variation of the Mustang, was in production by the end of the decade. It became a forerunner in muscle cars. In the era of the gas crisis Mercury created the Capri and the Bobcat to comply with consumers wanting something small and compact. Mercury has since then produced many acclaimed vehicles, like the Sable. Minivans and SUV popularity in the 1990s prompted Mercury to produce their own, with the Villager minivan and Mountaineer SUV. This decade was the best for Mercury, and since then has not accomplished the strength in sales it gained during the ‘90s. Most Mercury vehicles, both in the past and today, are based on Fords. The Sable, for example, is based on the Ford Taurus while the Grand Marquis is based on Crown Victoria. In the past few years, sales have been hurting, as the differentiation between Ford and Mercury is getting slim, and some think the brand will be stopped all together. Yet Ford seems intent on keeping the brand, the vehicles in production may be small, but the brand has a respectable niche in the luxury category. And since 2005, Ford has refocused on this premium brand with the introduction of the Mercury Mariner SUV; the new Mercury Montego full-sized sedan; and the smaller Mercury Milan.

Utah Used Mercury Cars

The name Mercury has found its place in used cars as a reliable and luxury vehicle. The Grand Marquis is a sedan that is meant to be driven, a fun drive on any road. It rides smoothly on the highway and handles bumpy city and country roads well. This used vehicle is the last of the V8-powered, rear-wheel-drive, full-size cars with body-on-frame construction. Its competitors are all V-6 front wheel drives, with frameless, unit-body construction. These include the Buick LeSabre, Chrysler Concorde, Pontiac Bonneville, and Toyota Avalon. The used Grand Marquis even comes close to the Lincoln Town Car as far as luxury, and it's priced mcuh lower. Mercury has sold 2.7 million Grand Marquis since 1975 when the car was first introduced as a premium American sedan. The 2003 Grand Marquis was got a makeover and rides more quietly and handles better. The used car has a new frame design and a speed-sensitive variable power-assisted rack-and-pinion steering; its got optional dual side air bags, new headlamps, side markers, new seat styles and materials, and new instrument panel woodgrains. The Marquis gets 25 mpg on the highway and 17 mpg in the city City; decent for a large used sedan. Its retail price is around $8,900.
