The Car Connection's Take
TCC Rating

7.8
TCC’s Bottom Line
The 2010 Mercury Mountaineer is just a dressed-up Ford Explorer, though its styling is a better match for family duty. If you can deal with its overwrought styling, the 2010 Honda Pilot is an excellent family vehicle, with the space and comfort of a minivan and good overall performance.
