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. For the 2008 model year, Mercury revived the respected and well-known Sable nameplate to replace the Montego. 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 new Sable is better than it's been and worth a look for those seeking a sedan that can comfortably hold a family of five.
