2007 Mercury Montego review and picture


Not every family wants or needs a sports utility vehicle or a minivan. If your family is just that type, then you might want to take a look at the 2007 Mercury Montego, which is a safe family sedan that scored the best on crash tests and has many other positive qualities besides. This spacious vehicle has the option for all wheel drive, which makes driving in difficult conditions easier and safer, and it also is loaded with features. Still, its engines lack power, which make it pale slightly in comparison to other family sedans.

The Good:

  • fared fantastically on crash tests
  • lots of room in back seat
  • spacious trunk
  • competent handling
  • easy to see
  • option for all wheel drive

The Bad:

  • drivetrain not up to scratch
  • doesn’t accelerate well
  • lame stereo systems
  • doesn’t have option for electronic stability control

Not much is new for the Mercury Montego in the 2007 model year, but there have been a few changes, one of the most disappointing being the dismissal of all wheel drive from the option list. Still, lots of good has come, especially the extension of the warranty to five years/60,000miles. Also added have been traction control and full length side curtain airbags in the safety department, and Sirius satellite radio and 18-inch wheels as options for entertainment and driving enjoyment.

A full sized sedan, the 2007 Mercury Montego comes in two trim levels, the Luxury and Premier. The Luxury is not your normal base level trim, and comes with a surprising long list of standard features:

  • HID xenon headlights
  • 17-inch wheels
  • dual zone automatic climate control
  • leather wrapped steering wheel
  • cruise control

Then there is the top of the line Premier, which adds:

  • 18-inch wheels
  • wood grain interior trim
  • heated front seats
  • CD changer
  • leather upholstery

There is a small list of options that can be added to either trim level, such as a navigation system, Sirius satellite radio, and a rear seat DVD entertainment system.
