I just happen to have owned a 1992 Mercury Grand Marquis with a tow package and it towed heavy car trailers better than some trucks I have owned. The one thing I do suggest is putting some air bags in the rear coils to help with the tongue weight. They are rated for a Max of 750 pounds tongue weight. I towed my friend featherlite trailer hauling a Chevelle thru the mountains of Northern NH. 4850lbs and it did it beautifully.

I am in sales and drive a 2000 Grand Marquis and really love it. It is so big, its like driving around sitting on the couch in your living room. It has more room to load with samples and work gear than most SUVs- while averaging about 24mpg.

I have to agree though that the extreme distance between the rear axle and back bumper would make it tough to haul any kind of tongue weight. I did have shocks with helper springs on them to keep the rear bumper off the cement- i just broke one of them going over a railroad track. I have now installed air shocks on it and will see how those do.

I leave the towing to our 2004 Escalade.
