2011 Mercury Milan
Review, Prices, Comparisons, Pictures
The 2011 Mercury Milan is available in two basic flavors: the base model, which starts at $22,025, and the Premier level, which starts at $25,165. The base model offers a 2.5 liter 4 cylinder engine as its main power plant. This delivers power to the wheels through either a manual or an automatic transmission. The power train is reasonably efficient, and the combination of the engine and transmission can yield up to 22 miles per gallon in the city and up to 29 miles per gallon on the highway. With the base model of the Mercury Milan, you also get an mp3 player, side and curtain air bags, a satellite radio, stability and traction control, and the options to add additional features such as an iPod auxiliary input and bluetooth wireless connectivity.
If you have more money on hand, you can opt for the Premier level of the 2011 Mercury Milan, which starts at $25,165. For this price, you can either get the standard 2.5 liter engine that comes with the Base model, or you can opt for the 3.0 liter V6 engine for more power and performance; however, the larger engine will also add more to the amount of money you pay for the vehicle. However, depending on your engine choice, you might actually see an increase in mileage from up to 23 miles per gallon in the city to up to 33 miles per gallon on the highway. You also get all wheel drive options as well as bluetooth and iPod input options. A DVD player and navigation system also become available options.
Overall, the 2011 Mercury Milan is a strong contender for the family sedan market. It is not overly expensive, yet it offers a responsive and well equipped vehicle that is safe enough for the children and adults and powerful enough to get people from place to place.
