What makes an automobile appealing is basically the built and the nicely crafted exterior moldings styled to suit every lines, corners and curves of the unit. However, appeal can be subjective. It can either refer merely to the internal and external appearance of the vehicle or to performance alone. And it can also mean good mixture of both aesthetics and performance. Most would of course prefer the latter. But then, if there are still more choices, wherein quality ride and responsive handling are included, you might actually set in with it. Still others might ask for extra features, something like luscious looks and excellent comfort.
Combining all the characteristics mentioned, a luxury automobile is what we'll end up talking about. And if you want to add-up roomy cabin, tough body and capacity of going off to rugged roads, a luxury sport utility vehicle like the Mercury Mountaineer is what you're looking for. This SUV is basically the twin of Ford Explorer, sharing almost every feature and appear virtually identical. Only the slight modifications make them look somewhat different. Significantly, the two automobiles suffered and soared almost at the same time.
The first generation Mercury Mountaineer featured 4.0-liter Cologne V6 and 5.0-liter V8 engines which were matched with either 4-speed or 5-speed automatic transmission system. At its introduction, Mountaineer wasn't able to hit a sales rate that's quite comparable to Explorer's, despite the fact that it then offered luxury features which the latter doesn't have. But when Mercury decided to change the exterior design, Mountaineer was able to hit the market good enough. Before this generation ended, both Mountaineer and Explorer suffered due to an issue regarding safety, which luckily was immediately settled. In the second generation, the spotlight hit Mercury with its drastic sales increase that's mainly brought in by modifications done with the Mountaineer. And presently, this automobile boasts an upscale interior and new chassis.
It would be very frustrating if the value of the characters of an automobile such as the Mercury Mountaineer is spoiled due to improper maintenance or because of installing substandard replacement parts. But the latter won't actually become a problem any longer, for here at PartsTrain you can always have premium grade aftermarket Mercury Mountaineer parts.
