2007 Mercury Grand Marquis Overview

Data provided by Edmunds

It's easy to dismiss the Grand Marquis as a dated car from an earlier era, but it's actually the best-selling car in Mercury's lineup. There's good reason for this: The Grand Marquis is still a lot of car for the money. For about $30,000, you can get a large, rear-wheel-drive, V8-powered sedan that's every bit as luxurious as a Lincoln Town Car but costs thousands less.A slightly more upscale twin of the Ford Crown Victoria, the Mercury Grand Marquis has roots dating back to 1975. Updates over the years have helped mask its age, most notably a refresh in 2003 that saw the car get a stiffer frame, a revised front suspension and rack-and-pinion steering. Not only did the new frame improve the big sedan's ride quality and handling capabilities, it improved its crashworthiness -- and indeed the Mercury's safety ratings are impressive.Drive the Grand Marquis back-to-back with modern cars like the Chrysler 300C, Hyundai Azera and Toyota Avalon, though, and it feels less agile and less refined. What's more, common features like stability control, DVD-based navigation or a high-end audio system are not available. If these items aren't on your list of requirements, however, and you simply want a large V8 sedan with an upscale ambiance that can comfortably accommodate four to five adults and a week's worth of luggage, the 2007 Mercury Grand Marquis is worth a look.

For buyers who want a large, upscale sedan with a V8, the 2007 Mercury Grand Marquis is worth a look. Most people, however, will prefer its more modern peers, which are better-equipped and better-handling.

Trim levels are simplified to GS and LS on the 2007 Mercury Grand Marquis. LS buyers can opt for the Palm Beach Edition Package, which bundles chrome wheels, cashmere leather seats, satin-finish faux aluminum interior trim, side airbags and heated side mirrors. Mercury has extended drivetrain warranty coverage to five years/60,000 miles.

Best Automotive Value--Period!

Let's start by pointing out I'm not your typical Grand Marquis buyer--I just turned 39 years old. My 8 year old Chyrsler 300M needed to be replaced and frankly, nothing out there really excited me--unless it cost $30k or more. I've always liked the look of Grand Marquis. They are a car-plain and simple. I found a nice silver '07 with leather and 16,000 miles on the clock for less than $16k. The ride is super-smooth, and the mileage is surprisingly good- combined city/highway of 22-24mpg. About the same as the 300m gave me. Some of my friends are giving me grief, but I'm laughing all the way to the bank. Pound for pound, these cars are a steal!

Great cruiser

Love this car. 42 years old, 3 kids. Comfy as any car I have owned - and I usually buy a car ever 12 months. Very low ownership cost, reliable, dependable, handles anything I can throw at it. Same basic drivetrain and build as police cars - built to withstand abuse. Large, safe, and anyone can work on it. Body on frame is a cheap fix in case of an accident. Runs alternative fuel - E85, reduces greenhouse gasses by 25%. Great way to start driving capital towards alternative fuel infrastructure while supporting American workers. Great car for return-on-investment folks - purchase one that has taken a little depreciation and you can own it cheap and have no large long-term ownership costs.

Great Car - Very underrated

Just purchased this car 2 weeks ago. Reluctantly traded in a 2005 Mustang with only 26K. But my Grand Marquis is everything I hoped for and more. It's comfortable, holds the road well, incredibly safe and it gets 19-20 MPG in a blend of around town and limited parkway. This is the same mpg my V6 Mustang was getting. The kids have plenty of room and we're even taking my car instead of our gas guzzling TrailBlazer. No one wanted to ride in the Mustang. There's a lot to be said for big American cars, especially when an Accord or Camry are 1/2 the size and may get 2 or 3 miles better (with a 4 cylinder). Finally, this was a Ford Company car with 10,800 miles and I paid just under $15K!

Wonderful Slightly Used Luxury Car Value

I have owned one Crown Victoria and one Grand Marquis over the past 14 years. these cars were reliable, quiet, powerful, and comfortable. In fact, the 2000 MGM I just retired (still in the driveway - still runs great!) has 215,000 miles on it. That car was driven over 100,000 miles after the car payments ended, and needed nothing more than regular maintenance and replacement of wear items. I expect the same from the 2007 just purchased. This car's initial drop in value makes riding in luxury delightfully inexpensive. It was put into service as a Ford program car 9 months and 7000 miles ago. I paid $17,000 for it, a $13,000 drop from MSRP. If not for the odometer you'd think it was brand new.

Great car, good deal

This much maligned vehicle is a real gem. After owning large GM cars, mostly Cadillac, for the past 25 years it is a relief to have something reasonably simple again, to not be plagued by troublesome electronics you don’t want or need. This car performs well under a variety of driving conditions. It is comfortable, can actually accommodate six adults when necessary, and still deliver 27 to 29 mpg on regular gas on a trip. The build quality is as good as any I have ever owned. There is little to not like about this car.

My 2nd Grand Marquis

This is my second Grand Marquis. Moving up to the LS was definitely a good choice. With the rebates available at the time the extra features were worth it. This car is extremely comfortable and easy to drive. Having had both GS and an LS, I say there is something different about the seats, the leather seems more supportive and not as "squishy" as the cloth when driving. I would like to move up to the Town Car next time, if they still make them. The gas mileage for my 70%city 30%interstate, yields me about 20 mpg, not bad at all for stop and go. On a long road trip I've experienced 26 mpg. If you liked the big sedans when you were a kid get one of these before they're gone.

Plenty of room fuel economy up to 24MPG

With my medical problems, this car is very easy to get in and out of and very roomy for the price.Drove 6000 miles and no service problems. this is an excellant car for highway driving. Good for city driving too. I have a loaded Palm Beach edition,and although I have always enjoyed cloth, the soft cashmere leather is acceptable to me.6045 miles.

Mini-me4

The Grand Marquis I bought was smooth and quiet. The V8 though was noisy, effortless, and sometimes felt ungainly. But the cabin felt comfy, despite the unsupported front seat. The trunk was quite cavernous. Sometimes, though, the vehicle tilts when cornering at higher speeds, such as 30-40 mph, but overall the ride seemed stable and supple. All in all, the Grand Marquis is a comfortable touring car, but I do think better cars exist in its class.

Best large car for the money

I have just traded my 2006 Toyota Highlander in for a 2007 Mercury Grand Marquis LS. Pound for pound, dollar for dollar, this is the best large vehicle around. Comfort and space combined with tasteful styling make this car a great buy. It is like driving on a cloud.

Good Car Good Value Good Size.

I purchased the Mercury Grand M. LS I paid a good price I got a Full size car and I am very happy ! Believe it or not a traded it a Honda accord. My Lower back was killing me the car had a lot of noise. I do not like Japanese cars! I am 45 years old and I enjoy the soft ride of my new car The size is perfect for my family and I can put all my luggage for my long trip. This car is either you love it or hate it. There si nothing in between powerful and solid made.!

"GRANDE" Marquis

I owned a '93,'96,'97,'03 and now a 2007.Would I rebuy these beauties if the weren't an excellent car? gave the 93 to grandson,traded the '96 for the 07,sold the '97 to my son and sold the 03 when wife died.They were all superior performing cars and all got between 22 and 25 mpg.You can do no better at the price.

Very Disappointed

Very disappointed with the quality vs. value. Wanted to get rid of it within 2 months, but now very upside down on loan (because a lousy quality vehicle) and now have to keep until loan is paid down! Which makes me dislike it more! Outside too big, inside too small, ride is very rough. Just stuck with a lousy car that I don't enjoy driving! The only positive thing about the car, it's been dependable. But so have my other cars, which makes us regret the day we bought this car. No wonder the car companies are going bankrupt, the quality is not worth what they're charging. As soon as it's driven away, it immediately drops in value $10,000?? But the new ones are still priced at $27,000??

Good large car

Car is large, but safe. Don't care for driver's seat much. Very good MPG for a large car, better then my Camry-Toyota with a 4-cyl and feels safer too. And no problems. V8 is smooth as silk, Ford has done a good job!

Great Car For The Money

Owned a 1996 Lincoln town car prior to purchasing the Marquis. Was going to get another but took test ride in Mercury and said "this is it".So far this is as good of an automoble as you could want. Extremly comfortable excellent gas mileage.Averaged 26 mpg on two trips in excess of 1500 miles at 70 mph. Performs just as good as the Lincoln, plus cost $20,000 less at purchase. Great machine.

2nd Marquis

I had already owned a Grand Marquis and was looking for a new car. I test drove a Chevy Impala and Ford Fusion. I bought another Marquis because the price and ride was great and I know that it won't need a lot of future repairs. I wish it was sporty looking instead of a grampa car.

A Lincoln Town Car for 20k less.

Purchased car new. My second one .
Outside of car is rather large .Front interior room above average, shockingly little leg room in back. Adequate head room for taller drivers. Very comfortable seats has lumbar adjustment.Pleasant interior. Odd that it has a tachometer for this is not a performance car.Plenty of front leg room, adjustable steering wheel nice.Easy to get in and out. Easy to operate power windows and power seats.Awful electronic digital odometer that I can't read in bright light . Perfect for long trips but dangerous on wet and icy roads for it has rear wheel drive and will easily lose traction,so I don't recommend for anyone living in the snowbelt.
Appearance of car is pleasant ,looks like a Lincoln Town car and has the same V8 engine which gives plenty of passing power basically a Lincoln Town car for a lot less money. Huge trunk !They have improved the handling from earlier models and they got rid of those awful rear airbags that would leak.
The early Mercury Grand Marquis had a plastic intake manifold that would crack and overheat so look for a latter model with aluminum intake.
Gas Mileage is just fair ,especially bad around town.
Engine and transmission smooth and reliable,ZERO problems !!!
The electronic gas pedal stuck a very dangerous situation ,it cost $600 to get it repaired. Even more expensive the entire AC went out at 35k first the AC compressor went out then the actuator that opens and closes the doors switching from AC to heat. Then the fan blower starting howling followed by the dash switch shorting out. It cost over 2 grand to repair. I live in Scottsdale, Arizona so you have to have AC.I owned a 2000 Mercury Grand Marquis and NEVER HAD any AC problems.
This is the type of car people either love or hate for it is so large and is an old fashioned design. I mostly bought car for it is easy to drive and the engines and transmissions in these cars go over 200k.I am 6'3 and 250 pounds and this car is easy to get in and out. Most modern cars are super small inside and I have trouble getting in and out. I do a lot of long highway driving and this car is perfect for that.Not very nimble in traffic.Large outer body by today's standards,sits low compared to all these SUV's and crossovers so you can't see over the other cars.Adequate acceleration.
The center caps on the wheel covers keep popping off,I lost three of them.Really cheap wheel covers on the GS model.I noticed on other Grand Marquis they are always missing center caps,it you hit a pot hole they will fly off.The LS model has nice aluminum wheels so this is not an issue.The LS model comes with leather seats not recommend in hot climates like Arizona.The cloth seats in the GS model are nice looking and never seem to wear out.
Tires don't last long on these cars for they are heavy cars,expensive to replace,they wear out at 25k. Because these are heavy vehicles make sure when buying a hydraulic jack that it is rated at 2 and quarter tons or higher.Most of these modern day hydraulic jacks are listed at only two ton,these will fail if you try to jack up the front of the car.
Visibility is great.These cars will easily last over 200k if you change the oil and transmission fluid,some go over 300k so if you are looking for durability this is the car for you.I have owned several Fords including the Crown Vic which is very similar to the Grand Marquis.Most Fords products are very average cars but this model holds up well,far better than the pre 2010 GM models I owned. These make great used cars but check out the history of the car before buying,many of these started out life as a police car or a cab,so it may have a zillion miles on it.A lot of elderly people bought these things new ,if you can purchase one from them it will usually have low miles ,these cars will give you years of trouble free driving and are reasonably priced.

Great Ride

The 07 Grand Marquis is a great luxury car with a great smooth ride and extremly quiet and it handles great as well and the performence is great to with that big 4.6L 224HP V8 Engine and i love the 16" Y spoke rims and the front end design looks great and the fog lights add a sport look and it has many features like the dual power heated leather seats heated side mirrors classy looking wood trim power sunroof and i just love the cars design its great and all the interior controls are very easy to use and the interior materials are very nice as well as everything else its a great car to own and its extremly safe 5 stars in all 4 categories so i feel safe when i am driving the Grand Marquis

Lincoln in Disguise

I purchased a 2007 Grand Marquis LS a few months back to replace an '03 Town Car.
The Marquis had only 30k miles.
The MPG is between 23-25, and some of the mid-size cars won't average much over that.
I have plenty of leg room, and a huge trunk that you don't find on the smaller cars.
It's as smooth as my Lincoln, and just as quiet.
Would like to have had the redundant audio and HVAC controls on the steering wheel as the radio is a bit of a stretch for the driver. That was an option on the Grand Marquis but standard on the Town Car and Crown Vic LX.

Perrenial Winner Grand Marquis

This is my fourth Grand Marquis and I've averaged around 200,000 miles on the previous three. The reason that these Ford/Mercury autos are used for livery and police cars is comfort, fuel economy, longevity and value. Buy Japanese, or German instead? I think not. Generally my experience is relatively negative to foreign autos contrary to published opinion. My 1998 GM repair bill was under $3,000 for eight years of use while I averaged 25 miles per gallon on the highway. Everyone loves the room and comfort of these autos on a long trip. You could buy smaller and perhaps average another 15% better gas mileage but the repair bill could easily reach 300% more, relative to my experience.

Excellent Car

Silky smooth and fuel efficient engine. I get 20.5 in town around Boston and as high as 27 on the highway. Looked at BMW's, but they do not offer a proportionately better handling or ride for the value, plus they burn expensive premium gas. I still can't find a better car for the price. I put heavy sway bars on the car (rear end) for a couple of hundred dollars. Big difference. Suspension mods are easy and cheap. Car's design inside and out is simple, and uncluttered... but I like that. Only complaint, is that the rear seat does not fold down, and they don't make a roof rack.

More than happy

I bought my Marquis slightly used and at a huge discount. This car does everything right with a giant sized trunk, 6 passenger capacity and 21 mpg on average. Reliability has been perfect so far and I certainly appreciate the super low insurance rates. Being larger than average, the interior room is excellent and the safety rating is reassuring. This may be close to the last car I'll ever buy and I'm only 42. I hear all the stories about sloppy handling. Those people should get a Corvette. This car is designed for cruising and does so very well. This is basically a lincoln town car with a $25,000 rebate. All those cops, taxicab drivers and government employees can't be wrong.

Awesome Family Car

The Grand Marquis is the best car on the market for the money Its roomy quiet and has a smooth ride and hugs the road and has great safety ratings which is the most important thing when you are carrying around 2 little ones and the LS Handling Package is great with the improved ride and power And the Laminated Window Glass in the Doors makes you feel extra safe and provides a even more quiet ride And the Dark Toreador Red Paint and Black Leather seats make the car look even better the adjustable foot pedals makes all size drivers comfortable and the power moon roof is a great feature and the remote starter and headlight controls are a must have so in my opinion the Grand Marquis is awesome...

2007 Grand Marquis, Great road car

This is my first Grand Marquis and I think it's a great car. People seem to want to talk about how it has a lack of handling with some roll in the corners or how it should look more sporty or its lack of power. This is a large semi luxury vehicle, it's not a race car. This is a great road car and when buying a nice comfortable vehicle these points are mute. If you want a sporty suspension with more power then doin't buy it, but if you want a vehicle that delivers a good ride, decent fuel economy (for it's size at 25 mpg highway) and plenty of room for the family at a reasonable price then this is the car for you.

More than I expected

On some trips, I and my passengers have all raved about the comfort. The lumbar cushion in the front seats have given wonderful support. I have the optional handling package which gives and extremely stable and smooth ride. I also ordered the laminated security side glass which not only offers protection, but also adds sound insulation from road noise. It's nice and quiet. The optional Audiophile Sound System is one of the best sounding radios I've ever heard. I love being able to adjust the sound and temperature using the controls on the wood and leather steering wheel. This is a wonderful car.

A solid, traditional, reliable car

I find the official review from Edmunds a bit irresponsible! I fail to see the logic in urging folks not to want a so- called "throwback" of a car when the Grand Marquis is a solid, reliable US/Canadian vehicle that gets the job done in comfort and safety. Competitor cars have iffy build quality are costly to repair. Does Edmunds want us to pay more for something "new" just because newness is somehow better? I disagree! I have a 2008 BMW 5 series too and the iDrive is a mess, the dopey flipper shift knob gets in the way, parts break often and it's back to the $$$hop; it's constantly nagging at me too! A lousy personality I pay a fortune for. I'll take the familiar, old school Ford V8 anyday.

A real surprise

I was looking for a Crown Vic to pull my small bass boat with when this 2007 GM got in the way.
6 years old, 44000 miles, body on frame to handle a trailer hitch, $9500.00?
Oh, yeah.
I was expecting a somewhat clumsy driving experience.
Boy, was I wrong!
The suspension is tight and well controlled.
The steering is
precise and so smooth, too.
I love driving it!
I don't drive with a heavy foot so my worst mpg average for a tank of gas has been 24.6 with about a 40/60 city to highway ratio.
A 300 mile highway trip yielded 28.1 mpg.
The car is so nice I don't want to put the hitch on it.
I feel like I got a new car for 9500 bucks.
There are several like it out there, too.

Grand Marquis GS/Best Buy for the Money

The 2007 Mercury Grand Marquis GS is definitely the best buy for the money on the market. It's roomy, comfortable, reliable and affordable. The styling may seem outdated to folks who are trendy but hey...why change something that is already the best. Just as much room as a Cadillac DTS but much more economical to buy and to maintain. Some of the bells and whistles that the LS has are not there but those few things aren't worth the extra cost...unless you don't know what else to do with your money. I love my Grand Marquis!!!
