Mercury’s slow death…
This picture is proof that Ford isn’t really planning on keeping mercury alive much longer.
The revised 2010 (or is it a 2009?) Milan will be the last “new” Mercury model.
This was supposed to be a Mercury version of the Ford Taurus X.
But, as you know, it never happened. As we can see here, the car was all ready to go.
So it was a last minute decision to just kill it.
But what did they expect really…. It was just a matter of time. Most people are pretty wise now when they are shopping for a new car. And a new front end doesn’t really make a new car.
GM got it right, finally. Aura and Malibu don’t really look alike. (although their SUVs all look the same. Old habits…)
