Plainly geared toward the airport limo trade and older owners eager to re-live the past, the 2010 Mercury Grand Marquis LS, with its tepid powerplant and venerable four-speed automatic, has even lost its appeal to today’s modernized police forces. Equipped with standard 17-inch painted alloy wheels, leather upholstery, six-passenger seating, digital keypad power door locks, power accessories (including heated outside mirrors), cruise control, air conditioning, telescoping tilt-wheel steering, simulated wood door and dash trim, and single-CD player with four speakers, this large sedan offers, as well, a plush ride, optional wheel upgrade, heated seats, and the piece-de-resistance, a cassette deck that would make the most demanding 1970s DJ proud. Finally, despite its stodginess, or perhaps because of it, the 2010 Grand Marquis LS offers strong safety scores, complemented by standard four-wheel disc ABS, traction control, and dual front side-mounted airbags with head protection chambers.
The 2010 Grand Marquis LS is powered by a 224-hp, 275-lb-ft/torque E85-capable Flex Fuel V8 engine that combines with an aged but dependable four-speed automatic transmission for an EPA-estimated 16/24 mpg. Reliability, not efficiency, dominates this big vehicle's roster.
