The 2011 Mercury Grand Marquis is a relic from another time, and this past year it's been fading into history at about the same time as the Mercury brand itself.

With a low-stress, 224-horsepower V-8 engine, a four-speed automatic transmission, and an ancient body-on-frame design, the Grand Marquis is an oddity in today's market. While much of the Grand Marquis is shared with the Ford Crown Victoria, a favorite of taxi and police fleets, as well as with the Lincoln Town Car, which is a limo, the Mercury has traditionally only ended up either in rental-car fleets, or in the decreasing ranks of comfort-oriented private owners.

The interior, too, will take you back on a nostalgic trip, and you might have trouble believing that the Grand Marquis is indeed a new car. It's been about two decades since a significant redesign, so the instrument panel and displays don't look much like those in other new Ford and Mercury models, but they're no-nonsense but haven't been kept up-to-date with navigation systems or Sync connectivity. Seats are soft and comfy (and not all that supportive), but you can fit three across and the trunk is a huge 20.4 cubic feet. On the down side, performance is sluggish in most respects; fuel economy isn't great, especially around town; and even though the suspension is tuned so softly the ride can still be jittery over some surfaces.

If you want the last of a dying breed, get one now. For more information, please see our last full review of the Grand Marquis.

How does the
TCC Rating work?
The TCC Rating is a clear numeric rating value based on a 10-point scale that reflects the overall opinion of our automotive experts on any vehicle and rolls up ratings we give each vehicle across sub-categories you care about like performance, safety, styling and more.

Our rating also has simple color-coded “Stop” (red), “Caution” (orange),
or “Go” (green) messages along with the numerical score so you can easily understand where we stand at a glance.

Our automotive experts then also collect and show you what other websites say about these different aspects of any vehicle. We do this leg work for you to simplify your research process.
