For 2006, Mercury's version of the Ford Freestar minivan comes only in one well-equipped model. It's powered by a 4.2-liter V-6 powerplant that produces 201 horsepower and a strong 265 lb-ft of torque that's coupled to a four-speed-automatic transmission. The front-drive Monterey rides on an independent suspension up front with MacPherson struts and a stabilizer bar up front, a semi-independent array in the rear and coil springs all around, providing a smooth ride. Extra sound-dampening materials used throughout the vehicle deliver a quiet one as well. Included are four-wheel disc anti-lock brakes for sure-footed stopping abilities; Ford's AdvanceTrac stability enhancement system is optional and includes traction control and the Brake Assist panic-braking enhancement. For added crash protection, Ford's three-row "Safety Canopy" head-curtain airbag system is included. The Monterey comes with a standard third-row seat which folds flat into the floor, along with foldable and removable second-row captain's chairs. A host of available family-minded features include power sliding rear doors, a power liftgate, DVD entertainment system, a fold-flat third-row seat, power adjustable pedals, and a reverse-sensing proximity warning. Its standard leather-and-wood steering wheel has been redesigned for 2006. Bright seventeen-inch, nine-spoke machined aluminum wheels are newly optional, and fresh paint choices include Dark Toreador Red Clearcoat Metallic and Smokestone Clearcoat Metallic.

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.
