2009 Mercury Milan news, pictures, and information
The Mercury Milan gets even better for 2009 wîth a new distinctive VOGA series, available AdvanceTrac electronic stability control and available SIRIÚS® Satellite Radio, provide more value for customers.
Fashion-inspired VOGA Series
VOGA, a Spanish word that means 'fashionable and trend-setting,' builds on Milan's inherent smart, contemporary design by offering customers an even more expressive thémé.
'VOGA appeals to the fashion-conscious customer who typically likes to have more of an emotional connection wîth their vehicle than the average Milan customer,' explained John Starr, Milan marketing manager. 'VOGA enjoyed a very successful debut on the 2008 Mercury Mariner, and we expect a similar strong reaction wîth Milan.'
The new VOGA series is only available on Milan Premier models as an option. It comes in two unique exterior colors – Tuxedo Black Clearcoat Metallic and White Suede Clearcoat – and one interior color – Dark Charcoal Black. The VOGA package consists of:
|Engine : 2.3 L., 4-cylinder|
Power: 160 hp
Torque: 156 ft-lbs
Engine : 3.0 L., 6-cylinder
Power: 221 hp
Torque: 205 ft-lbs
5-speed Manual, 6-speed Automatic, 5-speed Automatic
Ambient Lighting Adds Personalization
To further enhance Milan's sophisticated individuality, the Premier Series will offer increased personalization wîth standard adjustable ambient lighting. Ambient lighting allows the driver to change Milan's accent lighting inside the cupholders and in the front and rear foot wells. Seven colors are available –blue, red, violet, orange, indigo, green and yellow – to match any mood.
SIRIÚS Satellite Radio also is standard equipment on the 2009 Milan Premier Series.
AdvanceTrac Electronic Stability Control
Building on Milan's refined performance and handling experience, Mercury is adding available AdvanceTrac electronic stability control to help ensure customers have the benefits of enhanced capability when needed. AdvanceTrac uses a sensor to detect and measure oversteer and understeer by monitoring the vehicle's §teering wheel angle versus actual yaw. When the system senses wheel side slip – the difference between the driver's intended and the actual path - engine torque is reduced and braking is applied at individual wheels to help keep the car tracking safely on its intended path.
Another significant change involves a 5-speed automatic transmission, which will be paired wîth Milan's 2.3-liter four-cylinder (I-4) engine as standard equipment on Milan Premier models. In fact, the four-cylinder (I4) Milan – equipped wîth either an automatic or manual transmission – is a Ú.S. Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) certified SmartWay vehicle. To earn the designation, a vehicle must satisfy minimum scores for air pollution and greenhouse gas emissions. Vehicles that receive the SmartWay designation 'are very good environmental performers relative to other vehicles,' according to the EPA.
This powertrain also meets Calfornia's stringent requirements as a Partial Zero Emissions Vehicle (PZEV).
Overall, Milan offers customers an impressive range of powertrains and driveline configurations that deliver excellent fuel economy, as certified by the EPA:
Milan customers also will have five new exterior colors to choose from for 2009, including Tuxedo Black Clearcoat Metallic, Brilliant Silver Clearcoat Metallic, Smokestone Clearcoat Metallic, White Platinum Clearcoat Tri-Coat and Sport Blue Clearcoat Metallic.
Milan continues to provide customers wîth a host of advanced safety features that contributed to the highest individual ratings from the Insurance Institute for Highway Safety (IIHS) for frontal and side-impact crash test performance in 2008 testing.
Milan comes equipped wîth standard side-impact air bags for driver and front passenger, side air curtains for both first and second rows and anti-lock brakes. Other safety features include:
