All traditional gas engine models come with a four-speed automatic transmission. There is also a Hybrid model that has an inline four-cylinder which produces 133HP and is capable of 33MPG in the city with the help of a variable speed automatic transmission.Read more Read less

The 2007 Mercury Mariner is essentially the same as the Ford Escape and Mazda Tribute, but it has a more distinctive appearance inside and out, along with a simplified model lineup and more standard equipment. The Mariner has an especially roomy interior and smooth ride, relative to other small SUVs. The Mariner Hybrid also stands out as being one of the most fuel-efficient SUVs on the market, with especially high mileage in city driving. The more personal service offered by Lincoln-Mercury dealerships is an advantage, too.
