The Mercury Milan is a mid-size car introduced, manufactured, and marketed by the Mercury division of Ford Motor Company from 2006 to 2011. A single version of the Milan was available from 2006 to 2011, and Mercury gave it its name after the city of Milan, which is located in Italy. Indirectly following the Mercury Mystique as the smallest Mercury sedan, it was the smaller of two model lines created to replace the Mercury Sable.

History of the Mercury Milan

The Mercury Milan, introduced at the Chicago Auto Show in 2005, marked the first new Mercury sedan moniker to be presented since 1995. The Milan would be the division's final nameplate to be released. After reduced production runs for the 2011 model year, Mercury discontinued Milan sales in 2010, the same year Ford's division ceased operations; the last vehicle was manufactured on December 17, 2010. Mexico and the Middle East were the markets for Milan, in addition to the United States—which includes Puerto Rico and the Virgin Islands of the United States. The Mercury Milan was offered for sale in six distinct trim levels throughout its production run. These levels varied according to the drivetrain configuration that the buyer had chosen. The I4 and the V6 were the standard engines available, and the I4 Premier and the V6 Premier were the options for the top trim level (keeping in step with the Montego and Mercury SUVs). A special-edition option package for the VOGA was made available in 2009, and it featured model-specific white leather seats and exclusive chrome wheels. The Milan was manufactured at the same facility in Hermosillo, Sonora, Mexico, as the Ford Fusion during its entire production run. This facility is known as Hermosillo Stamping & Assembly.

Mercury Milan Hybrid

Along with the Ford Fusion Hybrid, the 2010 Mercury Milan Hybrid hit the US market in March 2009. Ford established a moderate sales goal for the Fusion and Milan hybrids of roughly 25,000 vehicles annually. In all, 2,884 Mercury Milan Hybrids were sold.

Features of the Mercury Milan

Exterior Features

According to Mercury, the style of Milan was influenced by big, modern cities. The satin-finished metal "waterfall" grille, a contemporary Mercury trademark, is the first of several distinctive stylistic cues. This aids in differentiating the Milan from the Ford Fusion, which has a similar profile and construction. The four-door sedan has a spotless, understated, overall look with soft curves and body line segments that could be described as "chiseled." It is built on a relatively long (107.4-inch) wheelbase.

Interior Features

The Milan's five-passenger cockpit is intended to carry over the charm of the Milan's body through premium materials and satin aluminum treatments. The Milan's spacious and airy interior gives the driver and front passenger plenty of head and elbow room. Although they offer only a little bolstering and comfort, the seats aren't excellent. Each rear seat side has plenty of room for the knees, toes, and heads, but the center position is a relatively firm perch with limited headroom. The rear seats fold down 60/40 as standard. Taller passengers can enter more easily thanks to the expanded back doors.
