Mercury Villager

Ford Motor Company announced that it has pulled the plug on the Mercury Villager and several other models. Unfortunate news for minivan consumers, because the Villager is a handsome minivan with good standard content and a variety of packages that can option it just the way you like. But don’t feel too badly. As 2002 has turned out to be the model’s swan song, it’s a safe bet your Mercury dealer will be making long deals this year. Since a modest model line reversion in ’01 that included a restyled front fascia, a new satin aluminium plated grille, restyled rear liftgate area, new body side moldings and new 16-in. wheels, not a tremendous amount is fresh this year. In fact, the only change is a new color: Cordovan Red clear coat metallic.

The Villager is offered in six models, each powered by a 3.3 liter sohc 12 Valve V6 engine that produces 170 bhp at 4800 rpm and 200 lb.ft of torque at 2800 rpm, mated to a 4 speed automatic transmission. Even the base value model comes standard with driver and passenger side sliding doors, driver and front passenger air bags, air conditioning, a tilt steering column, power windows and locks, remote keyless entry system, an FM/AM stereo/cassette and four speakers, and an anti theft system.
