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.
The Milan is part of Mercury's revival plan and is aimed squarely at customers who place a premium on upscale styling both inside and out. Sharing its engines and chassis with the Ford Fusion (and thus with the Mazda Mazda6), the Milan wades into the lucrative midsize family sedan market with a sense of individual style and available all-wheel-drive capabilities that are not found with the Honda Accord or Toyota Camry. Offered with a choice of a fuel-efficient four-cylinder or powerful V6 engine, the Milan features enough diversity to satisfy all but the most hardcore driving enthusiast. With prices starting just below $20,000, the affordable Milan should appeal to fashion-conscious buyers who want to look good but don't want to spend a fortune doing so.
