Ford just revealed the 2010 Ford Fusion
and the 2010 Ford Fusion Hybrid
and now we can bring you the live reveals on its platform pals the 2010 Mercury Milan
and the 2010 Lincoln MKZ
. The Fusions two upmarket friends split the hairs of luxury with the Milan going after the Euro-snob luxury buyer who can't afford a Euro-snob nameplate while the Lincoln chases the McCainiacs who want something smaller to replace their 1989 Lincoln Towncars. While both good cars on their own we have to question the wisdom of two cars chasing the luxury market.
It's funny, we're pretty excited about the new Fusion, but these two cars offer much the same package and yet we're apt to give them both a "meh" (look it up in the Collins English Dictionary, it's a real word now). Where the Fusion provides a perfect example of an American car done right, the Milan and the MKZ are perfect examples of one luxury car that could be great but is split in two to satisfy the dealers.
