 Mercury (automobile) - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia
The Mercury name comes from the Roman god Mercury and during its early years, the Mercury brand was known for performance.
Mercury was its own division at Ford until 1945 when it was combined with Lincoln into the Lincoln-Mercury Division, with Ford hoping the brand would be known as a "junior Lincoln", rather than an upmarket Ford.
Mercury's heyday was in the 1950's, when its formula of stretching and lowering existing Ford platforms was very successful.

Mercury's trying again, this time using the all-new Milan to brand itself as the "metropolitan" car, one that might compete with the BMW 3 in the "entry-level performance-luxury" niche.
The Milan's performance is provided by the 221-horsepower Durotec V6, a 3.0L engine that also produces 205 lb-ft of torque.
Mercury could probably upgrade the steering wheel with a real leather wrap or even a real wood inlay for - and I'm guessing here - no more than $100-$200 per car.

 2006 Mercury Milan

Mercury dealers report the all-new Montego sedan is generating nearly 45 percent of its business from these "conquest" buyers, most notably from customers who are cross-shopping import sedans and crossovers.
Milan's CD3 architecture is 12 percent stiffer than the base architecture, providing a solid foundation for responsive ride and handling as well as a quiet cabin designed to survive miles of punishing, pockmarked roadways.

Mercury's new mainstay compact sedan arrives this fall as the near twin to the Ford Fusion and the very close sibling to the Lincoln Zephyr, both unveiled last month at the Detroit Auto Show.
Aside from the vertical-bar grille and the horizontal taillamps, the interior is the main area of distinction between the Milan and the Fusion, with the Mercury featuring a choice of satin-metal or wood trim as well as offering two-tone leather upholstery.
Mechanically, the Ford and Mercury are identical, with a 2.3-liter, 160-hp four as the base engine, with manual or automatic transmissions (both five-speed).

The Ford Motor Co.’s slow revival of the Mercury brand continues this fall with the arrival of the new Mercury Milan sedan.
As recently as 2003, Mercury’s moribund lineup consisted of the bingo shuttle Grand Marquis, its old-school performance spin-off, the Marauder, the Mountaineer SUV and the once-hip but now-aged Sable.

 2006 Mercury Milan - The Car Connection
At the upper end of the scale, the Milan V-6 Premier (Mercury's mixing up its European languages there) is some $2100 more than the Fusion V-6 SEL but the way the specification is arranged so it makes it more difficult to compare the two directly.
The range-topping Milan gets (supposedly softer) leather trim and standard ABS but the Fusion SEL's standard climate control, multi-function leather steering wheel, and fog lamps are relegated to a $600 comfort package in the Milan.
I haven't sampled the four-cylinder Milan yet but I have driven it in the Mazda6 (which also shares its underpinning with the Milan and Fusion, albeit slightly narrower and shorter) and while it's not going to blow your socks off for performance, the shift action is light and the engine is reasonably refined.

 TCC Message Boards - Mercury's Milan is the car to beat
I prefer the Milan's taillights and the Fusion's front end, but would be delighted to have either one.
The Fusion and Milan look very promising, but it'll be interesting to see the Fusion/Milan in two roundups: this year with the Sonata and the old timers, and next year with the redesigned Toyota Camry and Nissan Altima.
The Zephyr's other problem is that the Milan is going to be sitting in the same showroom, and IMHO the F-150 dashboard they transplanted into the Zephyr looks out of place in a $30,000+ car.
