The Monterey comes in only one trim level, the well-equipped Luxury edition, previously the designation for the mid-level version of the Monterey. It comes with front-wheel drive, the 4.2-liter V6 engine, a four-speed automatic transmission, and anti-lock brakes. Interior equipment includes first- and second-row captain's chair seats, and a cloth-trimmed third-row seat that folds flat into the floor or tilts back to form a convenient tail-gate spectator seat. Cloth upholstery is standard. Safety features that come standard include an occupant-sensing front passenger air bag, Safety Canopy curtain and side-impact air bags, perimeter anti-theft system, and heated power-adjustable side mirrors with built-in turn/warning signals.The Mercury Monterey is a carryover from 2006.
