2006 Ford Freestyle SE 4dr Wagon AWD (3.0L 6cyl CVT)
In the Northeast, there is always the threat of snow, sleet, etc. We had a good run with AWD Astro vans, SUV's,and Subarus. But for the money, this is hands down the best wagon/van/suv!! Average 21 MPG in local travel, don't get much highway use. Rivals any AWD/4WD vehicle we every owned in sloppy conditions. Hope Ford just keeps refining and building this vehicle.
AWD, climate control, rear HVAC, ride, handling and looks.
