Available in a single trim level, XR7, with a choice of a 140-horsepower V6 or 205-horsepower V8. Cougar claws it out for sales in the market niche with the Ford Thunderbird and Pontiac Grand Prix.

All Cougars come standard with an electronically controlled 4-speed automatic transmission, air conditioning and power steering. The latter features speed-sensitive variable assist when you check off the V8 engine option. The option list lets you elevate the comfort and convenience levels of the Cougar with automatic temperature control air conditioning, 6-way power seats with optional leather, power moonroof and premium sound systems.  On the functional side, optional traction assist will prevent the rear drive wheels from spinning on slippery surfaces.

[[Mercury Cougar|Cougar]], [[Mercury]]'s sporty personal luxury coupe, is a virtual carryover model for '95. A pair of Special Edition models was released for the fall and spring seasons and featured special exterior and interior color schemes and accessories. Among the special touches were white leather upholstery with special cloth seat and door trim inserts. Both specials came standard with the new Sport Appearance Group. This package, available as an option on a standard Cougar, gives you BBS-style aluminum-alloy wheels and a non-functional decklid-mounted luggage rack.  Last year's new options of hands-free cellular phone and trunk-mounted 10-disc CD changer are no longer available. Seems Cougar owners aren't the "phone home" type.
