Mercury Mariner Hybrid

From the beginning, the Mercury Mariner hybrid was planned as a 2007 model, but Mercury saw the incredible demand for hybrid vehicles, and they jumped in early. The hybrid Mariner is built similar to the Ford Escape Hybrid, and is not too much different from the non-hybrid Mariner counterpart. The Mariner Hybrid earned the government’s highest five-star side crash test rating in 2006, and again in 2007. It also meets the Partial Zero Emissions Vehicle (PZEV) standard for emissions.

The Mariner Hybrid is driven by a Duratec 2.3 liter, DOHC, 16 valve, Atkinson cycle I-4 engine. It also makes use of the continuously variable transmission (CVT) system.

The Mariner Hybrid is a full hybrid which allows it to travel under its electric propulsion alone, but only at low speeds. It will stay in electric mode longer than any other competitor, which makes this SUV very appealing. The 2007 Mercury Mariner Hybrid starts at an MSRP of $28,615. The estimated fuel economy of the Mariner hybrid is 33 mpg city, and 29 mpg highway.
