The 2010 Mercury Mountaineer is available in base trim or as the up-level Premier edition. In both cases, standard equipment is generous, but a very long list of options adds a lot of appeal for those who want a luxurious vehicle capable of towing a large boat trailer on the weekends.
The Mountaineer takes advantage of the Ford parts bin and is available with Ford-exclusive technology like Sirius Travel Link and SYNC, which uses a touchscreen and Bluetooth to control the vehicle's entertainment and communication systems. The Mountaineer also adds a capless fuel filler system, 20-inch wheels, and new option bundles like a Navigation package and the Moon and Tune Elite package. Other options include heated leather seats, a moonroof, power-adjustable brake/accelerator pedals, and power running boards.
Cars.com notes that the option packages on the 2010 Mercury Mountaineer bundle various features, such as heated seats and a voice-activated navigation system. Mountaineer options "include a Third Row Seat Package that includes a 50/50 split third-row bench seat, a 60/40 split second-row bench with reclining seatbacks and auxiliary climate controls for the rear passengers; second-row bucket seats," reports Automotive.com, adding that the Mercury Mountaineer Comfort Package offers "leather upholstery, heated front seats, 10-way power driver's seat, six-way power passenger seat, dual-zone automatic climate control, and memory for the driver's seat."
Additionally, the poetically named Mercury Mountaineer Moon and Tune Elite Package picks up the powered moonroof and premium audio system.
