The new 2008 Mariner and Mariner Hybrid were unveiled this week at the 36th annual South Florida International Auto Show in Miami. Significantly updated for the first time since introduction in late 2004, the new Mariner and Mariner Hybrid will go on sale in early 2007. The updated Mariner features a completely remade interior, a comprehensive safety package with enhanced rollover and side-impact protection, electric power steering, chassis upgrades for a quieter ride and more refined driving dynamics. The new 2008 Mariner and Mariner Hybrid feature four-wheel drive, a commanding seating position, towing capability and the fuel-efficiency and cargo capacity characteristic of the small SUV package.
