Overview Information

Mercury intends to differentiate its products from that of Ford by offering more style. Thus, the Milan is a sibling of the Ford Fusion with Mercury familial styling traits like the waterfall grille and LED taillamps. Alongside the larger Montego, Milan provides Mercury with a second stylish sedan. Milan is powered by either a 160hp inline-four or 210hp V6. Four-cylinder models can be equipped with either a 5-speed manual or automatic transmission. The V6 model features a six-speed automatic as standard equipment. For buyers willing to wait a bit, an all-wheel-drive model will join the lineup in the 2007 model year and a hybrid powertrain has been promised for 2008.

What Changed:

The all-new Mercury Milan is a sibling of the Ford Fusion with "more style". It slots in below the Montego. The 5-passenger, mid-sized sedan is based on Ford's CD3 architecture derived from the Mazda6. Milan is offered initially with either a 160hp inline-four or 210hp V6 in FWD only. All-wheel drive and Hybrid powertrains are promised for future model years.

Official Word:

"The new Milan will bring a different customer to Mercury dealerships -- the brand's most youthful audience that is drawn to the upscale design, premium interiors and spirited driving dynamics that define all new Mercury products. These savvy shoppers want all of this without the luxury price tag." -- Darryl Hazel, President, Lincoln Mercury
