Standard safety canopy system; simple model lineup; lots of optional luxury items.
Introduced in 2004, the Mercury Monterey bid farewell during August of the 2007 model year.
The Monterey is driven by a 201-horsepower 4.2L V6 engine and is equipped with a four-speed automatic transmission. Anti-lock brakes and air bags covering three rows of passengers are the notable standard safety equipment. Luxury features included in the base price are a roof rack, fog lamps, power sliding doors, a power driver seat, power adjustable pedals, and dual zone air conditioning.
The Comfort Package, attractively priced at a net cost of $550, adds automatic temperature control, a universal garage door opener, a power front passenger seat, and an auto-dimming rearview mirror. Other optional luxury items include heated and cooled front leather seats, a power liftgate, and a rear seat DVD entertainment system. Enhanced safety can be provided through AdvanceTrac with brake assist and traction control, and the available trailer tow package enables the Monterey to haul as much as 3,500 pounds. When ordered together with the standard fold-into-the-floor third row of seats and the optional rear cargo management system, the Monterey proves to both versatile and comfortable.
Mercury ended production of the 2007 Monterey early in the model year, therefore changes from 2006 were limited to a shuffling of color availability.
The 2007 Monterey minivan is Mercury's comfortable upscale version of the proven Ford Freestar. A number of options, such as heated and cooled leather front seats, elevate the well-equipped Monterey to luxury status, and a host of standard safety features makes the Monterey an appealing choice for family trips.

NHTSA Rollover Rating
The Rollover Resistance Rating is an estimate of your risk of rolling over if you have a single vehicle crash. It does not predict the likelihood of that crash. The Rollover Resistance Rating utilizes a "fishhook" maneuver which is a series of abrupt turns at varying speeds to see how "top-heavy" a vehicle is. The more "top-heavy" the vehicle, the more likely it is to roll over. The lowest rated vehicles (1-star) are at least four times more likely to roll over than the highest rated vehicles (5-stars).
