Narrow year range (drag arrows to filter):
The 2008 Mercury Sable boats a number of improvements, among the most notable are a more powerful engine, a six-speed automatic transmission, a retuned suspension and a minor facelift. All-wheel drive is available on the standard trim level and Mercury's SYNC in-car communications system takes the cake for new available features.
Sometimes, the past is worth repeating. Last year's revival of the Sable nameplate (formerly known as the Montego) has helped boost Mercury sales among long-time loyalists more familiar with the old name. As before, this latest iteration is essentially the mechanical twin of the Ford Taurus, sharing a platform and some styling cues while still remaining the up-market model of the two. A roomy and safe full-size sedan, the Sable competes in a class that includes the Buick LaCrosse, Toyota Avalon and Chrysler 300, and with its fresh look and low entry-level price tag, the Sable is better than it's been and worth a look for those seeking a sedan that can comfortably hold a family of five.
