Narrow year range (drag arrows to filter):
Changes for 2011 include the addition of SelectShift six-speed automatic to the Premier V6, automatic headlamps and MyKey programmable key. New available features for the Milan include HD Radio (requires navigation) and rain-sensing wipers, while integrated blind-spot mirrors are made standard on models not equipped with the Blind Spot Information System (BLIS).
Big changes for 2010 include a new, 2.5-liter four-cylinder engine, a new six-speed automatic transmission, a Flex-Fuel compatible V6, standard AdvanceTrac stability control, electric-assist power steering and cabin air filtration system. New available features include the Blind Spot Information System (BLIS), a 12-speaker Sony premium audio system, rear view camera, SYNC 911 with traffic and vehicle health alerts and a voice activated navigation system with SIRUS Travel Link.
In an attempt to further distance the Milan from its Ford Fusion twin, Mercury is again offering its upscale VOGA series. VOGA models include cashmere colored leather seats and door trim, special exterior colors and unique trim. Also new for 2009 is the availability of AdvanceTrac electronic stability control on all trims.
Mercury's long run as Ford's near-luxury division sadly comes to an end this year. 2011 is the last year for the storied brand, meaning it's a great time to get a really good deal on leftover inventory. One of Mercury's most alluring offerings is the Milan. Sharing its engines and chassis with the Ford Fusion (and thus with the last-generation Mazda MAZDA6), the Milan wades into the lucrative mid-size family sedan market with a sense of individual style and available all-wheel-drive capabilities not offered on the Honda Accord or Toyota Camry. Offered with a choice of a fuel-efficient four-cylinder, powerful V6 engine and even a hybrid model, the Milan features enough diversity to satisfy all but the most hardcore driving enthusiast. With prices starting in the low $20K range, the affordable Milan should appeal to fashion-conscious buyers who want to look good but don't want to spend a fortune doing so.
