Overview Information

Ford claims to have designed their Freestyle crossover from the inside out. Take a look inside and you will find upright seating, generous interior proportions and a well thought out set of controls. Underneath you will find that the Freestyle shares it's Volvo-derived platform with the Ford 500 and Mercury Montego. Under the hood lies a 207 hp Duratec V6 engine with a continuously variable transmission (CVT). Available in FWD or AWD, Freestyle has a long list of traits that make this a very unique vehicle wrapped in clean, SUV-inspired styling. The Freestyle starts at $25k for a FWD SE model. A base AWD SE model starts at $27k, hitting $30k for a fully-loaded vehicle.

What Changed:

New crossover vehicle from Ford. The tall wagon features three rows of seating. Both FWD and AWD versions are offered. A 207hp V6 and continuously variable transmission are the only powertrain offered. Freestyle is made in Chicago.

Official Word:

"Freestyle is the crossover done right. We didn't try to adapt an existing minivan or sport utility platform. Freestyle is built from the ground up as a crossover with class-leading spaciousness, seven-passenger comfort, versatility and all-wheel-drive capability. And through it all, Freestyle will deliver with the value that defines it as a Ford. We believe these strengths give Freestyle the strongest potential to define the crossover market -- much like the Ford Explorer defined SUVs a decade ago." -- Phil Martens, Group Vice President, Ford Motor Company
