2005 Mercury Montego

Designed to provide ample accommodations for up to five people as well as a smooth and pleasant ride, the 2005 Mercury Montego is an entirely new mid-size sedan. It is powered by a V6 engine with 200 horsepower. The vehicle is equipped with front-wheel drive, although all-wheel drive is optional for improved grip and handling in poor weather situations.


The 2005 MERCURY MONTEGO is offered in 2 trim levels:

  • Luxury: 6-Speed A/T
  • Premier: Front Wheel Drive

Performance and Fuel Economy

The CVT is connected to a three-liter, four-cylinder V6 engine with four valves per cylinder. The same 200-horsepower engine that powers the family Taurus transforms the older vehicle into a rocket. On dry pavement, it will cause the front wheels to spin. However, since the Montego is a touch heavier (about 3,980 lb), acceleration is slower but more than acceptable. The EPA economy on the Montego (19 city, 26 highways) is almost the same as the Taurus, even though the Montego weighs around 600 lb less, indicating that the CVT is paying for itself.

Volvo influenced the suspension design and then improved for the Montego using computer-aided engineering modeling techniques. Built on a sturdy-shaped subframe with high torsional rigidity, the multi-link, independent rear suspension unit provides a smooth and comfortable ride. Because of its resistance to shaking, bending, and other movement caused by road contact, it helps shock absorbers, springs, and bushings to perform their functions more effectively and efficiently. The rear suspension comprises 30 distinct bushings, each of which has been computer-designed to serve a unique function.


The Montego has the top position in the midsize sedan market. The 2005 Mercury Montego, which is offered in Premier and Luxury trim levels, is intended to draw new consumers to Mercury dealerships because of its striking external appearance, modern, spacious interior, and optional amenities such as all-wheel drive. The Montego minivan builds on Mercury’s excellent product momentum, which started with the debut of the Mountaineer sport utility vehicle in 2002 and continued with the release of the Monterey minivan last autumn.


Features such as advanced high-intensity discharge (HID) headlights and LED tail lamps that illuminate 200 milliseconds quicker than regular bulbs are included in the Montego. All-wheel drive is available for dependable traction no matter the weather or driving conditions. While remaining upright, natural, upright sitting provides the most comfort and external view. The total interior volume of the car outperforms that of all other vehicles in its class. Ford and Volvo have developed energy-channeling frame structures and active safety elements in their engineering efforts. In addition, the new Montego was developed utilizing the Total Vehicle Geometry technique, which has been shown to significantly enhance quality while increasing the total value of the vehicle.


The term ‘technical’ defines the external forms of the Montego, which are well-executed geometric shapes and the usage of metallic surfaces like satin aluminum and chrome on the interior and outside of the vehicle. Some design features also contain technology that brings customer advantages, such as high-intensity discharge (HID) headlights, which allow a better view of the road at night, and LED taillights, which communicate with other drivers on the road in an extremely visible manner.

The design must have a sense of equilibrium. When seen from any angle, the Montego seems to be a combination of chrome and satin, with the edge moving toward satin aluminum, which Chief Designer George Bucher refers to as “cooler than cool.” The brilliant chrome HID headlights with jeweled accents complement the waterfall grille’s satin-metallic finish. The historic 15-spoke design of Montego’s 18-inch alloy wheels (standard on the Premier model) counters the technological, futuristic character of the metal finish.
