Re: What Should Mercury's New Design Look Like

Well, the design I posted for the Crown vic update would carry over well to Mercury, but if they are closing the plant then there's not much point.

I like the Grand Marquis a lot, but let's face it, the Panther platform can only last so much longer, and Ford wants to close the plant where it's made...
I still believe
- the superTaurus is an experiment
- the decision hasn't been made to continue it OR do a new Tbird
- the nextgen F-Awd MKS could become a Merc once the SmallMercTheorem expires & after the GRwdP starts up

Re: What Should Mercury's New Design Look Like

i wish ford would just throw us a freaking bone already, maybe tracer is still up in the air too. which would be very bad. the only thing i hope for this long wait is that they will update Milan and Mariner too with a whole new look to go with a new design langauge

Re: What Should Mercury's New Design Look Like

saintl1, even tho I think the Mariner is amazingly beautiful as is,
that's a great idea
an across-the-board "re-imaging" is perfect!
(or as close to perfect as a Cougar-less Mercury can be)
also with as few as 3 models:


...wonder if the reason for the silence & lack of showing anything (anything!) could be to allow the Mountaineer and MGM to exit before the intro of an all-new Mercury Brand - afaik LAIAS will be just after the Mountaineer shuts down;
dunno about the MGM, thought St.Thomas had another year to go.

Mercury needs to resurrect the Mustang based Cougar and revive the "Sign of the Cat" ad campaign .

I like the idea of not having an upper grill too.
I would style the small lower grill after the 49' Mercury.
