The 2010 Mercury Mountaineer Premier package comes with standard features like aluminum roof railings, sunroof, 18-inch chrome wheels, dual-zone auto climate control, real manual climate control, leather upholstery, driver memory function, Sync communication and entertainment systems and heated front-row seats. You can also add more luxuriant features to the premier package to include tow package, power folding third row seats, rear-seat entertainment system, voice-activated navigation system, internal hard drive that has 10GB of music storage and integrated real-time traffic system and 20-inch wheels. Both versions of the 2010 Mercury Mountaineer gave an impression of being a quiet ride on various reviews. The SUV has good sound insulation in place that makes it more comfortable for the driver and passengers of this car.
Being an SUV, the 2010 Mercury Mountaineer packs some serious security specifications. Airbags in the first and second row side curtains are in place. It also includes anti-lock disc brakes with stability control and rollover sensor. Reviews and crash tests by the federal government on the Mountaineer gave it a perfect score on both front impact and side impact crashes. The review by the Insurance Institute for Highway Safety also gave it the best mark on front impact test but a downgrade to "acceptable" on the side impact test.
