Mercury Montego

Make & Model Family

The Mercury Montego is a nameplate that was applied to three distinct vehicles marketed by Mercury. The nameplate first appeared in 1967 in Canada as part of the Mercury-derived Meteor line. In 1968, it was introduced in the United States as part of the intermediate lineup, becoming the Mercury equivalent of the two generations of the Ford Torino for its entire production run. For the 1977 model year, all intermediate Mercurys adopted the Cougar nameplate and the Montego line was dropped.

From the 2005 to 2007, the Montego name was revived for a full-size car, a rebadged variant of the Ford Five Hundred, slotting in between the Mercury Milan and the Mercury Grand Marquis. For 2008, the Montego adopted the nameplate of the car it was intended to replace, becoming the Mercury Sable.
