Last Mercury for Retail Sale to be Built This Sunday, October 10


It's official. Ford has announced that production of Mercury vehicles for retail customers will end on Sunday, October 10 this year. It's not entirely the end of Merc manufacturing – vehicles will continue to roll off the assembly lines for a few more months, but they will be aimed strictly at fleet buyers – rental car companies, government agencies and the like.

But even as production winds down, there actually seems to be fewer deals to be had – including the loss of bonus cash offers – quite extraordinary, since sales of Mercury vehicles have spiked recently. In August, the brand sold 9,039 vehicles for the month, comprising 2,976 Mariner SUVs, 2013 Milan mid-size sedans, 651 Mountaineer SUVs and, get this, 3,399 Grand Marquis full-size sedans – proving that even on its deathbed the old body-on-frame rear drive mastadon is just as much a gravy boat now as it ever was.

Although production will be ending on Sunday, Mercury dealers will still be selling cars as long as inventory remains available. So if you fancy getting yourself one of the last examples of Ford's original medium priced brand, better get your skates on. Here's some of the offers currently being pedaled by dealers and good at least through Monday next week.
  • 2010 Mercury Grand Marquis: 0% for 36 months, plus $1,000 bonus cash and two years of free maintenance, or $4,000 in total cash back .
  • 2010 Mercury Mariner: 0% for 60 months and two years of free maintenance, or $2,000 in total cash back .
  • 2010 Mercury Mountaineer: 0% for 36 months, plus $1,000 bonus cash and two years of free maintenance, or $3,000 in total cash back .
  • 2010 Mercury Milan: 0% for 60 months and two years of free maintenance.
  • 2011 Mercury Milan: 0% for 60 months, or $2,000 cash back.
  • 2011 Mercury Mariner: 0% for 60 months, or $2,000 cash back
