About Mercury Grand Marquis
The Mercury Grand Marquis is a full-size luxury sedan manufactured by Mercury, one of Ford Motor Company's divisions. The Grand Marquis has not become a separate model until 1983. Before that, it was the premium model of the Mercury Marquis lineup. Its assembly bases are located in many countries, mainly Canada. Four generations of the vehicle were produced from 1975. And its production was discontinued in early 2011.
As for the body style, the Grand Marquis was mainly offered as a four-door sedan. A two-door version was sold for eleven years from 1975 until 1986. In terms of automotive design, it adopts a front-engine and rear-wheel-drive layout. When it comes to the exterior and interior, every generation has undergone new revisions in the design or in the genuine parts. For example, the fourth-generation model boasts a more modern exterior design. It features a squared-off lower look, a more contemporary badging, and a larger grille. Besides, the optional locking gas cap for precious models was removed on all new ones. As for the interior, it features improved ergonomics, a new shoulder belt for rear middle passengers, a flat-top steering wheel, etc.

Built based on the Ford Panther platform, more and more Marquis parts and accessories became available as time went by. Take its engine parts for example. Its upgrades are of vital importance in that they can greatly improve the output. There were three engines available: 4.6L, 4.9L, and 5.8L V8. The last one was really a rare option back then. Their power output ranges from 210 up to 239hp (with handling/dual exhaust package). The power was transferred to the rear wheels through a four-speed electronically-controlled automatic transmission, which is the only choice.
