About Ford Five Hundred
The Ford Five Hundred is a full-size automobile that was produced and marketed by Ford from 2004 until 2007, and it made its debut as a vehicle for the 2005 model year. The production of the Ford Five Hundred began in 2004. The Ford Five Hundred was the larger of two model lines intended to replace the Ford Taurus; the Ford Fusion was the smaller of the two vehicles. The Five Hundred took its nameplate from the “500” suffix that Ford used on the Custom 500, Fairlane 500, and Galaxie 500 model ranges from the 1950s to the 1970s. Within the Ford model line, the Five Hundred was slotted between the Fusion and the Crown Victoria.
The Ford Five Hundred was the first generation of full-size Ford vehicles to be sold without a V8 engine (since the Ford Model A). It also introduced front-wheel drive, all-wheel drive (as an option), unibody construction, and was the first generation to be sold without a V8 engine. The Ford Five Hundred was the first completely new full-size chassis since 1979. It also introduced two distinct full-size model lines to Ford (for the first time since the 1978 discontinuation of the Custom 500).
The Five Hundred was marketed by Lincoln-Mercury under the revived Mercury Montego nameplate, slotted between the Mercury Milan and the Mercury Grand Marquis. For the 2008 model year, for a mid-cycle revision, the Five Hundred was re-christened as the Ford Taurus; the Freestyle became the Taurus X, with the Five Hundred becoming the Ford Taurus. The Ford Freestyle was marketed by Ford as a crossover utility vehicle (CUV).
A total of 241,402 Ford Five Hundred automobiles were manufactured, excluding those that were sold in international markets. Ford assembled the Five Hundred, along with the Freestyle and the Montego, at its Chicago Assembly facility in Chicago, Illinois.
In 1999, Ford Motor Company expanded its capabilities in the area of vehicle safety technology and started the development of a D186 Taurus replacement as part of the transaction that involved the acquisition of Volvo Cars and the company’s addition to Premier Automotive Group. The Ford Prodigy concept car made its debut in the year 2000. Much of the exterior styling of the Five Hundred would be introduced by the Prodigy, which was a diesel-electric hybrid designed as part of the Partnership for a New Generation of Vehicles. It was also the first Ford to use the horizontal “three-bar” grille. The Prodigy had a fuel economy rating of 72 miles per gallon (MPG).
The production of the Ford Five Hundred began on July 12, 2004, at Chicago Assembly, which had previously been the assembly site for the Ford Taurus. The Ford Five Hundred was made available to the general public in September of the same year.
Total Vehicle Geometry was the name of the quality control system that was implemented in the production of the Ford Five Hundred and the Mercury Montego (TVG). Because of improved participation and access, fit and finish on prototype parts improved, which led to a reduction in the amount of time required for preliminary production vehicles, also known as pilot vehicles. TVG was designed by Volvo and is heavily based on computer technology, which enables designers, engineers, and suppliers to have access to all data and results related to prototypes at all stages of the design process.
