2007 Mercury Mariner Hybrid

The Mercury Mariner Hybrid is a key component of Ford Motor Company’s commitment to building a better world. Mariner Hybrid combines the spaciousness, style and functionality of the Mercury Mariner with the ultraclean emissions and impressive fuel economy of a gas-electric vehicle.

Configured as a full hybrid, Mercury Mariner Hybrid can travel up to 25 miles per hour (mph) solely with clean electric power, as the 2.3-liter gasoline engine automatically shuts down to conserve fuel and curb emissions. When more power is required, the gasoline engine and the electric traction motor team up to deliver comparable acceleration performance to the conventional Mariner powered by a 3.0-liter Duratec V-6.

As a result, Mercury Mariner Hybrid delivers an impressive 32 miles per gallon in the city and 29
mpg on the highway. In addition, the vehicle meets the rigorous Advanced Technology Partial Zero Emissions Vehicle (AT-PZEV) emissions standard in California and in other states that have adopted California’s emissions standards.

This combination of style, fuel efficiency, utility and clean emissions earned the Mercury Mariner Hybrid the Green Car Journal Green Car of the Year award for 2006, the journal’s first such award.

For the 2007 model year, two new exterior colors are available — Tungsten Grey Clearcoat Metallic and Light Sage Clearcoat Metallic — along with two feature packages that combine interior comfort, safety and convenience features.

Mercury Mariner includes: four-wheel ABS; electric power-assisted steering; hybrid powertrain system; intelligent 4WD; auto-dimming rearview mirror; remote keyless entry; tire pressure monitoring system; fog lamps; AM/FM, six-disc CD player with MP3 capability; message center; leather-wrapped steering wheel with speed control; unique center panel finish with Sappele wood; 16-inch aluminum wheels and tires; Personal Safety System® and power group (power windows with one-touch-down driver window, locks and mirrors with accessory delay).
