Breaking News: Ford calls 3pm EST press conference, confirmation of Mercury's forthcoming demise may be announced

Ford is calling an unexpected press conference today at 3pm EST and in instances like this, you can expect the news to be ground-breaking. Reports coming out of the Blue Oval is that the press conference will be all about "brand and product strategy", which is pretty much confirming what’s been reported over the past few days regarding the fate of one of its brands, Mercury .

Unless Ford announces that they’ve developed a car that can travel in space - we’re not holding our breath on that one - you can expect that this press conference will be all about the demise of the Mercury brand.

Stay tuned for more details.

Indian news channel NDTV Profit said Tata is paying $2.65 billion to acquire the British brands, after months of negotiations with Ford. Tata and Ford declined to comment.

Look for Fiat, which is partnered in India with Tata, to sneak into this deal through the back door.

Wall Street Journal says the board pulled the plug on Mercury, so I don’t know why it wasn’t announced.

That was so cool, and the of them were both excellent. Also, knowing that in a challenge they’re will always be a winner and a loser, but in this case it is really unexpected that both of them finish in the same exact time.

I agree, I have the same experience as you dude. My friend has a mercury suv and I must admit that it was an awful suv, i cannot match up the performance of the Nissan Pathfinder.

Finally...thank the lord! I rented a mercury not long ago, and what an atrocious vehicle!

good riddance

Yes, they are finally closing the mercury but how about their manpower? Are the employees going to stay?
