1987 Mercury Sable Manufacturer Promo


The Sable replaced the smaller Marquis in Mercury’s 1986 line, but sold far better by attracting nearly 96,000 buyers. Developed with Ford’s Taurus in a $2billion program, the new front drive middleweight Merc offered similarly smooth, low-drag styling, plus a standard 3.0 V-6 (2.5 liter I4 on the base GS sedan) and other extras for only a few dollars more. The uplevel LS station wagon priced from $13,068. Mercury as a whole sold 315,147 vehicles for the 1987 model year. 9th place overall.

    Thanks for sharing. I must say I enjoyed this video. It was good to see this car. I do not understand why this car had a nice size trunk and was quite roomy and was the same length as midsized cars today and yet they have less room and less interior space and weigh more.

      Today’s cars don’t necessarily have less room.

      For example, today’s Fusion has more front and rear headroom, front and rear legroom, front shoulder room, and front hip room than the Sable.

      Today’s Malibu also has many interior dimensions larger than the 1987 Sable.
