Mercury Introduces 'Runway-inspired' Mariner SUV
By KBB.com Editors on April 21, 2009 9:20 AMAccording to Ford design honcho Peter Horbury, "Mercury always has been about smart and contemporary design aimed at the style-conscious customer who appreciates a unique look." He might have tacked on, "The Grand Marquis notwithstanding," but it wasn't in the press release. In order to add some exclusivity to the mix, Mercury is launching a series of "fashion-focused" vehicles tagged VOGA. The first such vehicle is the Mariner VOGA and will arrive early in 2008 modeling subtle metallic-green paint, light beige "Cashmere" leather seating, silver-green metallic interior trim and, of course, VOGA logos inside and out.
