Conceived as a luxurious Ford Mustang in 1967, Cougar became a legend on its own. They built it on a stretched Mustang platform using only V8 engines. So, the Cougar was cool, stylish and fast.
Unfortunately, they discontinued the Mercury brand after years of poor sales and uninspiring models. However, Ford still owns rights for the Cougar name. Most car fans would love to see the latest Mustang getting some unique styling and a muscle car presence.
