2009 Mercury Mountaineer With Just 27K Miles Up For Auction

A mere footnote in automotive history at this point – along with the brand it was sold under – the Mercury Mountaineer has recently become a more common sight at online collector car auctions, even though it certainly doesn’t seem like there are many of them around anymore. In fact, it was just a couple of months ago when we saw a 22k-mile 2000 Mercury Mountaineer surface for sale, and now, an even nicer 2009 model – albeit with a few more miles on the clock – is up for grabs at Bring a Trailer, too.

2009 Mercury Mountaineer With 27K Miles - Exterior 002 - Rear Three Quarters

This 2009 Mercury Mountaineer Premiere has a mere 27k miles on the clock and certainly looks no worse for wear after living its entire life in the state of Kentucky thus far. In fact, other than a scuff on the front bumper, there are no noted flaws on the exterior of the SUV, and its Sport Blue paint looks to be in fantastic condition, overall.

The interior is also in like-new condition with no noted flaws or major wear on its Charcoal Black leather seats, nor anywhere else. Along with silver trim accents, this Mountaineer features amenities such as dual-zone automatic climate control, cruise control, a power-adjustable driver’s seat, power-folding third-row seats, and a touchscreen infotainment system with navigation and SYNC software, plus power windows, door locks, and mirrors.

This Mercury Mountaineer is powered by the venerable, naturally-aspirated Ford 4.0L V6, which in this guise was originally rated to send 210 horsepower and 254 pound-feet of torque to all four wheels via a five-speed automatic transmission. It remains to be seen just how collectible such a machine might be, but if nothing else, it’s certainly one of the cleanest Mountaineers we’ve seen in a long time.

    Love this Merc Mountaineer with 24 K miles. I purchased one of last ones built., a 2010 Merc., 4 door., Purchased it at my Merc Dealer (at the time) then FORD/Mercury quit making this car. My car has 89K miles on it., few scratches here & there, Have had it since it was new and have only put GAS, Oil Changes & Tires on it. Have never had any major mechanical work done. Black with B lack enterior. Has 3 rows of seats., the 3 rd row of seats is concealed. WE LOVE OUR MERCURY.


    Man is that guy lucky! As a Ford dealership mechanic I suffered with those things. You name the component it had an issue. Transmission issues like I never saw before!!! Engine issues, yup. Body hardware failures, yup. Electronic issues, yup. Years later it only got worse. All the ball joint boots cracked and failed,along with the joints. Ford was so lost at this period. The gang that couldn’t shoot straight.

    Why would anyone want an older ugly Ford. I keep seeing these olderFords going to auction and when I watch the auctions they get nothing for them because they are crap vehicles. Ford cars were always cheap ugly vehicles. Nothing special at all.

      I’ve owned nearly a dozen Fords and they were all great cars. I’m willing to bet you change your oil every 3 years or 30,000 miles, which ever comes first if you think Fords are junk.

      I’ve had a Ranger, 2 explorers, 2 Panthers, an F150, a Fusion, and an old Bronco. Only had a major transmission issue with one.

      Meanwhile the Honda Civic and Lexus RX i owned had plenty of issues. So Honda and Toyota MUST be junk based off the bad experiences I had, right?

    My ’91 Cougar and ’00 Mountaineer both made it to 200,000. My ’09 Fusion is at 260,000+
