History & Features:

In 1977, radical marketing changes came to Ford's intermediate lineup while mechanical changes were few. The Montego name was discontinued, and all the intermediate Mercury vehicles became Cougars.

For 1978, the base model two-door (Model #91 and Body Style 65D) and four-door (Model #92 and Body Style 53D) sedan stayed the same. The Brougham was discontinued as a separate model and became an option package on the base Cougar. The base model started at $5,009.
