2008 Mercury Ratings, Reviews and Awards

Mercury gave several of its cars a facelift for 2008, including the Grand Mariner and the Sable. The company, a division of the Ford Motor Company, saw several ups and downs over the year, with some of its sedans being outsold by models produced by its parent company. Confusion about names also forced Mercury to rebrand a few of its vehicles that year. The fifth generation of the Mercury Sable was originally introduced as the Mercury Montego, but slow sales and uncertainty inspired the company to change its name back to Sable mid-year. 2008 was the first year that the Sable was available as a full-size sedan, although the car was still notably smaller than the Grand Marquis, Mercury's other full-size sedan offering. 2008 also saw Mercury giving its SUV, the Mariner, a makeover. The car got a new look and a 10 percent reduction in fuel consumption but kept the same engine as previous years.
