2008 Mercury Sable At A Glance


Rounding up the vehicles in Ford’s flourishing stable of cars, the Mercury Sable is among the quality vehicles that definitely turn heads. The newest Sable in town promises a brand new exciting driving performance to new car buyers. Let’s all have a quick review about this marvelous car…

The Sable is considered as the heart of the Mercury lineup of vehicles since it was introduced as a model year in 1986. At some point, it has strangely disappeared for model year 2005. It was then accounted that it will be replaced by the Montego. And after three years, the Montego packed its bag and soon replaced by the new Sable for model 2008.

The brand Sable is highly based on the Montego when it comes to exterior design. It wasn’t a surprise after all, as it is the car that was expected to have been named Sable, that instead was called Montego, but with some significant upgrades.
