The Mercury Milan is a mid-size sedan that was based on the Mazda-designed Ford CD3 platform and distributed by Mercury. It is a twin of the Ford Fusion, while being slotted below the luxury-spec Lincoln MKZ (formerly Lincoln Zephyr) sedan. The Milan was first shown at the 2005 Chicago Auto Show, and was sold in the United States (including Puerto Rico and the U.S. Virgin Islands), Mexico, and the Middle East. With Ford eliminating the Mercury division, production of the Milan ended December 17, 2010. It is named for the Italian city of Milan.
