Sophisticated, high-performing, stylish, tough and with excellent ride quality — These are what one would normally expect of a new vehicle creation released into the market. And that's all what Mercury says about its all-new Mercury Milan. In fact, this new automobile is considered as the best car produced by Mercury in years, featuring the superb platform of Mazda 6.
Mercury Milan is a mid-size sedan that's a bit smaller than the Montego, but big enough to provide four big guys comfort. It comes in two trims, the Milan base and the Milan premier. Both are pampered with modern devices that further make this machine appear more sophisticated. The styling however, though quite unique, can be considered average when compared to other cars that have just gone to market. Milan's 4-cylinder and V6 engines boast notable fuel mileage and acceleration with a 6-speed automatic transmission system than with a 5-speed automatic, significantly obtaining 29 mpg highway rate from EPA.
The Mercury Milan base model runs with a 2.3-liter 4-cylinder engine which generated 160 horses. It can be matched by either 5-speed manual or 5-speed automatic transmission. On the other hand, the Mercury Milan Premier model is equipped with 3.0-liter DOHC 24-valve V6 engine that's coupled with 6-speed automatic. That combination is able to produce a powerful 221 horsepower at 6250 rpm and 205 lb.-ft. at 4800 rpm of torque. To equal the power of Milan, reliable safety features are offered as options which include anti-lock brakes, perimeter anti-theft system, side curtain airbags, and side-impact airbags.
Unlike the other sedans that Mercury engineered, the Milan looks totally different with the major changes on its crust. At the fascia, it has got conventional type headlights and the traditional Mercury waterfall grille. The rear features LED taillights on its high decklid, creating a combination that sets a somewhat Japanese-German work of art. At the top, is a roof that showcases a new styling, while the nicely crafted Mercury Milan wheels give life to the lower portion of the ride. The aesthetics, along with the performance can further be improved by retrofitting the machine with high-performance Mercury Milan auto parts that are featured here at PartsTrain.
