Mercury Cars Canada
Buyers will have one less brand to choose from in 2011, as Ford has officially announced that dealers were instructed to take their Mercury signs down on December 31, 2010.
Ford Motor Company will expand and enhance its Lincoln brand lineup with seven all-new or significantly refreshed vehicles in the next four years as part of an aggressive growth plan focused on standout product design, class-leading technology and new powertrains - all aimed at competing with Cadillac and Lexus in North America.
The Mercury brand could soon follow the path laid down by Pontiac, Saturn, Plymouth and Oldsmobile. Some industry sources quoted by US media say Ford may kill Mercury before the year end. Continuous sales drop would justify this decision.
