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

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

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.

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

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

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.

Buick is pulling the plug on the Lucerne, the biggest Buick (excluding the Enclave) will be the LaCrosse... admittedly, I think the Milan is closer in size to the upcoming Regal.
