"When the 2010 Ford Fusion and 2010 Mercury Milan launch this month, they'll be priced at $19,995 and $21,905, respectively, Ford Motor Co announced today. A hybrid version of both produces mpg ratings of 41 city and 36 mpg highway -- the best in its class. To boot, buyers of either are eligible for the highest $3400 federal tax credit on their upcoming federal income taxes."

Very reasonable pricing. I really hope these cars are a big success especially the Milan, God knows Mercury needs a big hit right now.

I look forward to seeing these cars on the road.

same here, as a current milan owner i cant say that im jumping to get a new one, they look nice but i think mine is nicer outside. i like the new interior alot and finally glad to see that got rid of the green lighting my car has for the ice blue. I do have to say that the Fusion sport in that sport blue color is really appealing to me, i think they did one **** of a job on the fusion. i wish they would have focus that much on the Milan.

regardless ill get a new car this year i hope but i think im just going mustang or camaro.

^ I'm dying to see the new Milan in person in a few weeks (at MOST I hope)
think it's very much a car I can't really judge from pix... ...tho I'm hotlinking a couple Live Autoshow pix I just found at MotorTrend showing the Milan in Tuxedo Black :)





think it's starting to feel a bit like the de-chromed customized 1950 LeadSleds ;)
ie so stealthy, it's HOT :)

oh!
attaching pricing charts

Ya know
I had weird lighting & reflections earlier (good excuse)
and was in a hurry (uh huh)
You're RIGHT - that's Atlantis Green :)

which is even better cuz haven't ever seen a Milan in that color before
Well, I considered the Atlantis Green when I ordered a Fusion Hybrid, but decided that it would look too dark on the road. (I drive in the dark a lot, and therefore also did not want a black or a dark blue.) It looks that, indeed, for my own preferences, it is too dark. (I ended up ordering a light blue.)

The 2010 Milan I recently saw at the Auto Show was Atlantis Green & I have to say I'm a big fan of it. I think it looks great.

Although, I still have to say I'm not much of a fan of the Milan's new interior, because to me it just doesn't have that upscale look to it. I hate to say it but in the tan color the interior almost looks cheap. I Thought after seeing it in person my opinion would change, but unfortunately it didn't.

I agree 2b2. The interior in that Alfa Romeo is goregeous & I think an interior like that would be great in the Milan.

^ Well, that's your opinion & I respect that, but I really think that color interior looks great & I personally would love to see a color like that make it's way to the Milan's & Mariner's interior.

Now I will 100% agree with you about the Milan's interior looking best in black or cashmere/black. I have never liked the camel colored interiors.

I hate light colored interiors, i dont mind the light colored inserts on the seats or door panels those are sharp but light colored rug is a nightmare. My Milan is Black on Black. The black interior has that elegance to it and the silver accents on it make it look real sharp.

When do the Milans start hitting the showrooms? i would like to see one in person, i love that Atlantis Green.

actually I'm not personally** a huge fan of the yellowish upholstery frequently seen in "premium" euro cars (and MKT's 'Canyon' interior?)
but
think ^it^ and the ruddy-natural adobe/terracotta (don't know what the 2010 MKS's is called/Taurus's "Umber") NEED to be Offered across-the-board on all Mercury-Lincoln vehicles
! as One Of the choices !
&
kinda think that's what they've been aiming at doing for quite a while
since
"Stone" & "Cashmere" are actually pretty good substitutes for "BoringBeige" already!

Oh!
what I meant to include with the original Alfa reference was
- that the detailing was as much or more my point as the color
- that the Alfa's interior design (minus some of the centerstack) IS surprisingly close to the Milan's imho
- & the fabric Alfa pic (attached cuz I hadn't re-found the URL NetCarShow of course DOH!)
think Mercury Needs to offer THE BEST fabric interiors (leather sometimes creeps me out) sort of a corollary to Lincoln's Bridge of Weir


oops/edit
I used to sell furniture (BeverlyHills adjacent) and a lot of potential Mercury customers there, prefer less-than-perfectly-practical upholstery - - got a great 'line' from another salesman:
"If you respect the fabric..."
ie if the LOOK & FEEL is important to you...
& for many people IT was
&
it's one choice < repeating myself - I'll stop


** silver, titanium-gray, black, (steel-or-many)blues for me - maaaaaybe a charcoal/umber interior

That butter colored interior on the Alfa sucks. You would spend more time cleaning and scrubbing than you would enjoying the car.

Milan interior has always looked best either in black or cashmere/black. The camel is an odd shade and hard to like in my opinion. I will reserve judgement on the 2010 interior until I see a Black Leather or Voga car.
I agree with you :) oh by the way is there going to be a Mercury version of the new Ford Kuga ????

About the light colored interiors. If youve even been in the southwest, you enjoy thm alot better than dark interiors...trust me. I lived in Arizona for 7 years...you want light colored cars and interiors.
Indeed. I live in California, which is a bit cooler, but given that it can still get hot in the summer, I opted for the medium light stone. (I would have preferred camel if it were available for the hybrid, but it was not.) I think I'd have been asking for trouble if I got the charcoal -- it might feel like charcoal in the summer...

If I got this right! I can't get a V-6 Milan with cloth interior? I guess then that Mercury lost me as customer. What a joke. I give up!!!!!!!!!!!!!:mad:
