Not to mention the current pairings:
Montego/FiveHundred (based on Volvo S80)
Milan/Fusion (based on Mazda 6)
The Sable is no longer in production. The Taurus alone is being built
for fleet sales only for a few more months.
Even most Lincolns are based on Ford vehicles, although they usually
have very different suspensions and other details compared to Mercury,
which are usually little more than different grills and taillights.
