5: Mercury Mariner
Before the Mercury brand was axed altogether, there were a few notable models that appeared in the brand’s showrooms. The Mercury Mariner was a compact UTE that was based on the Ford Escape and came with a number of luxury features. The Mariner was also the very first Hybrid SUV model to be sold on the open market.
The Mariner had a luxurious interior with two-tone leather seating, and you could say that the exterior styling was a lot more handsome as well too. When it comes to pricing for a used SUV you can find a Mariner for nearly nothing, and you’ll still have a quality SUV model you can enjoy for years to come.
