Is a 1999 Mercury Cougar FRONT wheel drive?
Yes , the 1999 Mercury Cougar is FRONT wheel drive
No ... the body and drivetrains are completely different. All Cougars until 1997 were rear-wheel drive and used a completely different frame. Cougars 1999 and onward are based on a Ford Contour, are front-wheel drive and a completely different drivetrain setup. __Edit__ while all that is well and good the 2000 cougar and the 94 tracer are both front wheel drive, but their flywheels are not compatible.
