Expert Quotes:

interior is beautifully arranged, with high-quality plastics and an intelligent dash design”
Kelley Blue Book

Explorer styling looks perhaps too familiar
Car and Driver

elicits big wows everywhere we go
MotherProof

All of Mercury's current products are lightly dressed-up Ford models, with different front and rear details, slightly different sheetmetal in some cases, and a lighter, more lavish interior look. The 2010 Mercury Mountaineer is no exception; Mercury's waterfall grille and softer front end help make the Mountaineer appear just a little more carlike.

Car and Driver thinks that the Mountaineer's "styling looks perhaps too familiar," which is not surprising. The Mountaineer shares much of its sheetmetal and even its detailing with the Explorer, but Kelley Blue Book does not necessarily consider this a detriment: "the Mercury Mountaineer takes the rugged good looks of the Explorer and stamps Mercury's new styling theme on its sheetmetal."

The Mountaineer’s interior sports a more urbane look than that of the Explorer, but it’s still straightforward, uncomplicated, and handsome. A reviewer at MotherProof observes "opening...the doors on the Mercury Mountaineer elicits big wows everywhere we go," and Kelley Blue Book says the Mountaineer "interior is beautifully arranged, with high-quality plastics and an intelligent dash design."

Conclusion

A little more gloss and sophistication separate the 2010 Mercury Mountaineer from the Ford Explorer.

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.
