About Ford Freestyle
Between the years 2005 and 2009, Ford offered the Freestyle, a crossover utility vehicle, as an option for customers to purchase. The Ford Freestyle was the crossover utility vehicle (CUV) version of the Ford Five Hundred and Mercury Montego four-door sedans. The Freestyle was primarily marketed as the successor to the Ford Taurus station wagon. The Ford Freestyle was manufactured in front-wheel drive and all-wheel drive configurations, with seating for either six or seven passengers, and it shared the Ford D3 platform that was used for production with the Ford Five Hundred and the Ford Montego.
After Ford brought back the Taurus for the 2008 model year, the Freestyle underwent a mid-cycle revision and was renamed the Ford Taurus X. This vehicle is now sold in South Korea, the United States territories of Puerto Rico, the United States Virgin Islands, and Guam, as well as in Canada and the United States. The Taurus X was discontinued after the 2009 model year and could no longer be purchased. Since the 2009 model year, the larger Ford Flex has fulfilled the role of the three-row CUV/wagon offering from Ford.
The Ford Freestyle was initially released as a model in 2005, and its primary function was to replace the Ford Taurus station wagon. However, it was marketed as a crossover utility vehicle, which was a new market segment at the time. The only transmission available for the Freestyle was the continuously variable transmission (CVT) found in the all-wheel drive version of the Ford Five Hundred and the Mercury Montego. Front-wheel drive came standard on the Freestyle, while all-wheel drive could be purchased as an upgrade. The base model came with a 3.0L Duratec V6 engine that produced 203 horsepower.
The Freestyle was distinguished from a Taurus station wagon by the presence of seating in the third row that faced forward (similar to the Ford Explorer and Ford Expedition). The Ford Freestyle was designed with a ground clearance that was somewhere between that of a sedan and a small SUV. However, it featured what Ford called “command seating,” which is seating with a higher H-point to improve driver visibility and make it easier for drivers to enter and exit the vehicle.
