Under their skins, all three cars are basically the same and now, for 2010, Ford Motor Company is giving the trio a midcycle update with new styling, more powerful engines, and revised interiors. The big news for the 2010 Mercury Milan is the addition of a Hybrid model (the Fusion lineup gets one, too). Front-wheel drive (FWD) and all-wheel drive (AWD) Milans return, able to seat 5 or accommodate more cargo thanks to a split-folding rear seat. New technology features include the next generation of the Sync entertainment and communications system, an optional Sony audio system, a navigation system with Sirius Travel Link, and a blind-spot information system with Cross Traffic Alert.

Critical Knowledge:Mariner gets more powerful enginesNew VOGA trim for Milan, Sable and Mountaineer2009 Mercury Mariner:While the exterior remains almost identical to the outgoing 2008 model, the big news for the Mariner compact SUV from Mercury is a powertrain lineup that consists of a more powerful 2.5-liter, inline 4-cylinder engine mated to a new 6-speed automatic transmission, which produces 171 hp versus 153 for the 2008 model. Peak torque comes in at 171 lb.-ft. The 3.0-liter, Duratec V-6 engine also receives a bump by 40 hp, bringing its new total to 240 hp. Both engines have seen an increase in EPA fuel-economy numbers, even though the engines produce more power. The Mariner Hybrid model includes an Atkinson Cycle version of the new 4-cylinder powerplant that has been adapted for seamless transitions between gas and electric modes. Other features for 2009 focus on improving the noise, vibration and harshness of the vehicle, as well as increasing fuel economy. Electric power-assist steering is standard on all 2009 Mariner models, as are aerodynamic refinements to improve cabin quietness and overall fuel economy.
