Interior design of the 2010 Mercury Mountaineer received high praise in many reviews. It is designed for luxury and comfort which seems to be the main selling point of this SUV.
The Mountaineer has a high towing and hauling capacity. Reviews calculate that it can tow a maximum of 7,200lbs with its V8 engine; that is about twice as much as other crossover SUVs in the market.
Impressive sound insulation in place makes the Mercury Mountaineer a quiet ride.
MyKey technology installed in the 2010 Mountaineer makes the car safer for young drivers. The system allows parents to put a cap on the speed limit and audio volume when their teens are driving.
Based on reviews, this SUV has really good safety standards in place scoring well in both federal government and Insurance Institute for Highway Safety crash tests.
The fuel efficiency of the 2010 Mercury Mountaineer is below average. With its V6 engine, it can only run about 14 miles per gallon in city driving and only 19 miles per gallon for highway driving based on actual reviews. It is slightly better when the V8 engine is in place but it still can't compare to more crossover SUVs out there.
The V6 engine versions of the Mountaineer is a little disappointing. Most reviews say it can compare to other SUVs with similar engine in terms of performance and fuel efficiency.
The price of the Mercury Mountaineer is on the steep side given its driving performance. Similar ride like the Ford Explorer cost less for just about the same specifications.
