2008 Mercury Sable Overview

The Sable sedan re-enters Mercury's lineup for 2008 as a replacement for the Montego, and in fact is essentially a rebadged and updated version of the Montego. Exterior styling updates include a new grille and front bumper, dual chrome exhaust tips, projector-beam headlamps, redesigned LED taillamps, integrated turn signal markers at either end of the front bumper, 17-inch seven-spoke bright aluminum wheels, and a satin finish on the sideview mirrors and door handles.

The satin-finish look continues inside to the steering wheel spokes and shifter knob. Other new components in the Sable's interior include a new instrument panel cluster with clean, easy-to-read dials, new interior colors and textures, and an available Premium wood package.

Power for the 2008 Sable is provided by a new 3.5-liter V6 engine linked to a six-speed automatic transmission. An All-Wheel-Drive system is available as an option.

Safety features for the 2008 Sable include six standard airbags (front, front-side, and a Safety Canopy system with a rollover sensor), an available AdvanceTrac system with Electronic Stability Control, and a Reverse Sensing System, which alerts drivers when backing up if objects are behind the vehicle.

As with many 2008 models, the Sable is equipped with a standard MP3 audio input jack. Optional entertainment features include Sirius satellite radio, a 320-watt, seven-speaker Audiophile stereo system, and a rear-seat DVD entertainment system.

A power moonroof, power heated front seats, power-adjustable pedals, and a voice-activated, DVD-based navigation system with a 6.5-inch color screen are also available as options.
