Vehicle Description

This 2003 Mercury Marauder is part of a small run of absolutely cool full-size modern muscle machines. If that wasn't already awesome enough, this black cat turns up the intimidation factory by adding a supercharger to the hardy modular fuel-injected V8. That means you have both rarity and serious power up for grabs.

With a name like Marauder you want it finished in black. This is the factory-correct color, which is always desirable, but there's also much more there that has your eye. Mercury really knew how to give its sedan a full midnight package makeover. This includes the blackout grille, black background headlights, upgraded tinted windows, and a rear light package that was tinted as dark as the law would allow. There's other speedy details, like the special rear spoiler and smooth front bumper with integrated fog lights. Plus, even the brightwork has an aggressive tone with the big polished dual exhaust tips and the large 18-inch alloys. And speaking of those wheels, the rear ones were professionally widened by two inches so that you can have even more rubber/traction where the power meets the pavement. In fact, this one has a highly stock look on the outside where the only big indication of the serious added power is the special Marauder SC badges on the fenders.

A full-size muscle car also has a practical side you instantly see the moment you open the door. This is the kind of interior space that makes it everyday useful, and family and friends will always want to go for a ride. This car has been lightly used, and so the leather seating remains complete, even for the driver. It's also loaded with all the luxuries everybody wants, including power windows, power locks, armrest center console, cup holders, keyless entry/alarm, cruise control, anti-lock brakes, dual airbags, side airbags, and automatic A/C climate control. There's even an upgraded AM/FM/CD touchscreen that connects to Bluetooth, and it's wired for you to add your favorite subwoofers. While all this is great for everyone in the car, this is also clearly a driver's machine. That's because you have the individual comfort of a high-back bucket seat. And not only does it power adjust, but so do the pedals. The dual-spoke steering wheel is on a tilt column to give you a clear view to the crisp white faced gauges. Not only did Mercury install AutoMeter Pro-Comp readouts in the center console, but also the matching ones on the A-pillar are a reminder that there's something truly special under the hood.

The reason why the Marauder was able the be such a powerful force is because it came about in the era of Ford's excellent 4.6-liter modular V8. This received the four-valve DOHC version, which basically gave this the same fuel-injected power as the contemporary Ford Mustang Mach 1. But the other great thing about Ford's V8 is that it loves upgrades. So this one now has a Procharger supercharger professionally installed to give it a big boost in muscle. Plus, this was given the right supporting pieces to take full advantage of the added power. It includes the Kenne Bell Boost-a-pump fuel pump module, newer injectors, and a handheld tuner module you can program from the glovebox. The stout four-speed automatic transmission also was done right with a stall converter and trans cooler w/switch for electric fans. Mercury upgraded the suspension at the factory utilizing components from Ford's Crown Vic police program, including four-wheel disc brakes and sway bars front & rear. So this one knows how to handle its size. But for those times when you just want to cruise, features like the power steering and the overdrive on the auto trans mean your supercharged sedan has everyday appeal.

Complete with owner's manual and maintenance records, this is the means-looking big-power Merc that just has a ton of all-around appeal. So don't let this supercharged Marauder slip away, call today!
