The Mercury Lynx was a Compact car produced by the Ford Motor Company for its Mercury division from 1981 to 1987. It was a Badge engineering version of the Ford Escort. In 1987, the Lynx was dropped after slumping sales (although at one point, it was Mercury's best-selling car). In 1988, Mercury launched the Tracer as the Lynx's replacement. The Tracer was based on the Mazda 323, was built in Mexico and Japan (depending on model), and shared nothing with the Lynx.
