Sails into 2008 with only minor changes to the options list

Heated leather seats and a power sunroof are among the available options

It's understandable that integrating modern high-tech features with what is essentially a three-decades-old vehicle might be difficult, but with the 2008 Mercury Grand Marquis, it's still disappointing to see that many of today's cool automotive features are not available.

The standard features on both the Mercury Grand Marquis GS and LS are nothing special. Kelley Blue Book says that the Mercury Grand Marquis GS offers power accessories "AM/FM stereo with CD, eight-way power driver's seat with lumbar support, cruise control," and "keyless entry with driver's-door keypad." On the LS, the standard features grow to include "leather, eight-way power passenger's seat with lumbar support, traction control, automatic air conditioning," and "rear-seat reading lights," according to Kelley Blue Book.

The available options on the 2008 Mercury Grand Marquis bring a bit more excitement, but not much. Edmunds says "on the options list for the LS, you'll find stand-alone items like a sunroof, heated front seats and an upgraded audio system with a CD changer." Cars.com adds that the 2008 Mercury Grand Marquis is available with a "Palm Beach package" that "adds various unique interior trim accents and badging, as well as power heated mirrors and side-impact airbags." Finally, ConsumerGuide writes that the Mercury Grand Marquis LS can be equipped with an optional "wood/leather-wrapped steering wheel" that "includes radio controls."

Conclusion

Electronic navigation? Bluetooth wireless? They were nonexistent when the Grand Marquis debuted, and they're not available on the 2008 Mercury 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.
