2006 Mercury Monterey Overview

2006 Mercury Monterey

There are few changes for the 2006 model year. Mercury has dropped the previously offered Convenience and Premier trim lines, leaving only the Luxury model. Due to lackluster sales, Ford will drop both the Monterey and Freestar.

Safety remains the Montereyâ??s strongest suit with five star government crash ratings and insurance industry recommendations for its offset-frontal crash performance. The Monterey has a reinforced frontal structure to absorb such impacts. In addition, the Monterey features the outstanding three-row Safety Canopy airbag system which offers head protection for passengers in all three rows. It also comes equipped with occupant-sensing front-passenger airbags, four-wheel ABS disc brakes, optional AdvanceTrac stability control with traction control, and panic Brake Assist. A tire-pressure monitoring system and self-sealing tires are also optional.

The interior seats seven in three rows (2, 2, and 3). Seating and cargo dimensions remain the same as in the previous year with various configurations built-in. Depending on seat configuration, cargo space can range from 31.5 to 131 cubic feet. There are also overhead and front floor consoles with storage. A dual-zone climate control, power driverâ??s seat, and power adjustable pedals are standard along with a front and rear parking assist system, which beeps when either bumper comes close to an outside object.

The 4.2-liter V6â??s performance remains unchanged. Producing prodigious amounts of torque, the Monterey is a capable hauler and works seamlessly with the four-speed automatic transmission. Gas mileage figures are 23 mpg highway and 17 mpg city. The Monterey remains a competent highway vehicle but still lacks the refinement and ride comfort of its class peers. Its low resale value reflects the perception of this overall lack of refinement.
