The Ford Motor Company in Detroit, USA, has announced it will discontinue the prestige brand Mercury at the end of this year.
With this, the umpteenth historical and leading brand in the United States silently disappears into the history books. The American rinse becomes thinner and thinner. Ford is having a hard time.
