Ford Freestyle News and Views
I was just reading this month's (December) Motor Trend and on page 18 there is an article on Ford's Fast Forward.
Now we all know what a bastion of reliability Motor Trend is with their accuracy so treat this as you will. It states and I quote:
Ford D471. Development started with the Fairlane concept from Detroit 2005, although the production model won't get that historic nameplate. Based on the front wheel Volvo S80 (Ford Five Hundred) architechure, it essentially replaces the Freestar minivan and will overlap with the Freestyle for about a year before that car is retired from the lineup. Styling is said to be much changed from the concept. Model Year 2009.
So if this is true and the new minivan/crossover "fairlane" is introduced towards the end of 2008 as a 2009, then the Freestyle may not get to see a 2010 model year.
