Question of the Day: Would you care if FoMoCo killed Mercury?


If you guys haven’t heard already, there are reports going around that Ford Motor Company executives are working on a plan to kill the Mercury brand. The plan will be presented to directors in July. Sales of the brand have dropped 74 percent since 2000 and that leads us to believe that no one really cares to even consider the brand while shopping for a new car. Are we wrong? Let us know whether or not you would consider Mercury when shopping for a new vehicle and if you really care that the future may not have any Mercury cars on the roads.

For those of you wondering, Mercury currently offers only four models with the Milan (which is based on the Ford Fusion) being the only one to get a total redesign since God knows when. Other than that you have the Mountaineer, Mariner and the Grand Marquis.

Let us know your thoughts in the comments section after the jump.
