2009 Mercury Milan Spy Shots

2009-mercury-milan Even though Mercury is likely headed towards the same fate as Oldsmobile a few years ago, there will be a 2009 Milan. Click on the picture to your left to see the full-size shots. So what’s the big deal? Well, it’s just an update / refresh, so nothing much to get excited about. The grille and headlights are revised a bit, but not dramatically. The rear is hard to make out, so I’m not really sure what they’re doing back there. Really the only significant news is the availability of a Milan Hybrid version. The excellent 2.3 liter hybrid setup that current powers the Escape and Mariner Hybrid will make it’s way under the hood.

The hybrid version is good, but with the Fusion Hybrid also set to be available, why bother? No one really seeks out Mercury anymore. Maybe Ford is only letting Mercury limp along until Lincoln gets big enough to support it’s own dealerships. Could you imagine a Lincoln store without Mercury today?
