Mercury Mariner Hybrid

The Mercury Mariner Hybrid SUV is the second of Ford's five announced hybrid vehicles with the Ford Escape Hybrid being the first. In fact, the Mariner Hybrid shares the same hybrid system as the Escape Hybrid. With the Mariner Hybrid 4WD is standard and on the Escape Hybrid 4WD is optional. Both share a 33 mpg city and 29 mpg hwy rating for 4WD-equipped hybrid vehicles.

The Mercury Mariner Hybrid is, however, a slightly more upscale model. Here's some of the features that come standard with the Mercury Mariner Hybrid:

  • Remote keyless entry and illuminated entry
  • SecuriLock® passive anti-theft system
  • Perimeter alarm system
  • Tire pressure monitoring system
  • 3-Point safety belts for all seat positions
  • Lower anchors and tether anchors for children for rear outboard seat positions
  • AM/FM, MP3 & satellite-ready stereo with 6-disc in-dash CD changer and 4 speakers
  • Electrochromic (auto-dimming) rearview mirror
  • 60/40 split-folding rear seat
  • 2-way liftgate with flip-up glass
  • Fog lamps
  • Roof-rack side rails with crossbars

The Mercury Hybrid Mariner is a full hybrid featuring 2.3-liter DOHC Duratec four-cylinder Atkinson-cycle engine with two AC electric motors that provide both motor and generator functions, an electronically controlled continuously variable transmission (CVT), and 250 D-size nickel-metal hydride batteries in a compact, rear-mounted, sealed package. Full hybrid means that the Mariner Hybrid can run on either electric motor, gasoline engine or both. The Mariner hybrid system with its 133 hp gasoline engine and 94 hp electric motor is reported to have the same acceleration as the Mariner non-hybrid V6. The Mariner Hybrid can run on electric motor up to 25 mph, at which point the gasoline engine kicks in to provide more power.

The Sierra Club, which for the longest time has criticized the environmentally unfriendly Ford products, has gone as far as to endorse the Mercury Mariner Hybrid. The Sierra Club has been promoting the Mariner Hybrid through to its 300,000 members through its Sierra Club's Insider newsletter.

On June 7, 2005 the first Mercury Mariner Hybrid SUV was sold at auction at the Heal the Bay "Bring Back the Beach" dinner. According to Mercury, "Mercury donated a 2006 Mariner Hybrid SUV to Heal the Bay, the Santa Monica-based environmental group dedicated to improving water quality along California's coastline. The Mariner Hybrid was the premier auction item at the group's annual 'Bring Back the Beach' dinner June 2, held adjacent to the sand at Santa Monica Beach.

"The winning bidder was Ardie Tavangarian, owner of ARYA, an architecture, construction, and project management firm in West Los Angeles. He purchased the Mariner Hybrid for his Senior Project Manager, Dean VanRossen to use as a company car."

The Mercury Mariner Hybrid offers yet another option for hybrid SUV buyers with a slightly upscale design and features. And, why not spend a couple grand more since by owning a Mercury Mariner Hybrid, customers will receive a $1,950 tax credit from the Federal Goverment.
