About Mercury Tracer
Mercury is a no longer existing division of the American automobile manufacturer Ford Motor Company. Created in 1938, the division served as the medium-price brand of the Ford for nearly its entire lifespan. It bridged the price gap between the Ford and Lincoln model lines. It was also the key factor to tell itself from those model lines. With low price, reliable parts, and above-average crash test scores, the Tracer attracted many college students and young families.
The Tracer is prodeced under the brand of Mercury. It has been Mercury's bread-and-butter car since it took the place of the Lynx model in 1988. As the smallest Mercury model line, it made its first show in 1991. As a successor to the previous generation, the Mercury Tracer was a clone of the Escort. The differences between them lay in some parts, such as front fascia, tail lights, and wheel covers. The automaker stopped the production of hatchbacks, and only offered a four-door sedan and a five-door station wagon.

After a major redesign in 1997, the Mercury Tracer saw only minor upgrades in the late two versions. The Tracer station wagon carried over much of the second-generation body shell, with small changes solely in the side-view mirrors, door handles, badging, and dashboard. The one and only engine was a 2.0-liter four-cylinder engine. It was paired with overhead-cam and split port induction. Each intake port was fed by two intake manifold runners. This design allowed for the largest efficiency and amazing performance at both low and high rpm. It helped the Tracer produce 110 horsepower at 5,000 rpm. At the same time, it was still rated as a low emissions vehicle (LEV) in the state of California. Besides, when young buyers were traveling on the rough mountain roads or dashing at highway speeds, Mercury's smallest vehicle could offer a great driving experience. It could not live without Tracer's high-quality parts like one-piece body construction, a cross-car beam, and stiffer stabilizer bars.
The 1999 Mercury Tracer is offered in the following submodels: Sedan and Wagon. Available styles include GS 4dr Sedan, LS 4dr Wagon, and LS 4dr Sedan. After 1999, Mercury ended sales of the Tracer. A planned fourth generation in 2012 was suspended at the end of 2010. It pays to buy the OEM Mercury Tracer parts to keep your vehicle in good condition.
