2007 Ford Freestyle Limited 4dr Wagon AWD (3.0L 6cyl CVT)
Some say Freestyle is Fords best kept secret, and it is! Volvo Chassis and structure, Volvo AWD mechanism. 5stars crash protection all categories. Highlight is the CVT Transmission, silky smooth adequate acceleration with no shifting points. CVT provide great real world fuel economy better than EPA, the best fuel efficient V6 crossover in its class. Interior is so quiet like a luxury car, so is the engine. Theater seats in 3 rows, the rear passengers got great views of the road ahead. All seats are 1st class spacious, comfortable. Dash and interior fit and finish look good, the grains and soft surfaces felt fine. Exterior style slowly grew on me, "Go anywhere" look! Smooth over bumps, etc.
Smooth CVT transmission, best crash protection possible in a vehicle, great fuel economy, everyone got good view of the road, quiet ride, it got contemporary styling better than "other" crossovers starting to get weird shapes, lot of room + leg rooms
Nothing needed improvements on this Freestyle. Ford already done some improvements on the 08 TaurusX. With all the features and accessories, I am totally satisfied. I think Ford should design all their future vehicles similar as the Freestyle to get good fuel economy and great space layout!
