The mid- to full-size Mercury Montego sedan, which was introduced for 2005, gets only a few minor changes for 2007. The Montego now has increased standard safety equipment, including front-seat side air bags and Safety Canopy side curtain air bags with rollover protection. Sirius satellite radio is a new option, and a power driver's seat is standard on the base model. Also, new 18-inch chrome wheels are newly available, along with two new colors: Dune Pearl Clearcoat Metallic and Alloy Clearcoat Metallic. The Montego will be renamed the Sable for model year 2008.
Roomy interior; large trunk space; comfortable ride; safety features.
The Mercury Montego is nearly identical mechanically to the Ford Five Hundred, sharing the same Volvo-derived platform. The sedan has one of the roomiest interiors in its class as well as the largest trunk space, with a cargo area that can be expanded thanks to folding rear seats and a folding front passenger seat. The Montego is also one of the safest; it has earned top five-star government crash-test ratings for front- and side-impact performance and is ranked "Good" by the Insurance Institute for Highway Safety in frontal crash performance.
