2008 Freestyle rendering

Recommended Posts

After the Edge, what's the point.

Well, I guess they need something to fill the gap of the soon-to-die Freestar.

I wish the Galaxy were coming! The Fairlane sounds nice, but there's a market for the Freestyle-the Edge on the Build and Price site is too overpriced, and its cargo space is equivalent to its truest rival, the Chevrolet Equinox.

Hold on. I thought the Fairlane got the boot?

No, the Fairlane and a Lincoln companion will be produced at the Oakville, Ontario plant. However, it will use the larger D3 platform instead of the CD3 platform as used by the concept.

Okay...but a Lincoln minivan? Sounds interesting and slightly stupid.

the POINT is 3 rows vs. 2. The edge is a personal crossover...the freestyle is a family crossover.

Wait maybe I'm a little confused...

I'm thinking of the boxy minivan-like concept from like a year ago...

This is an improvement on the super-bland Freestyle they're selling today...

Think of it as a crossover with the capability of a minivan.

That grill treatment makes it look a lot more attractive. Hope the real thing ends up looking real close to that.

No, the Edge is more like the Chevrolet Equinox-a short-tail, long-wheelbase mid-size crossover SUV wagon that only seats 5 passengers, as the Pilot seats up to 8 via a interior with far more passenger and cargo room than Edge or Equinox. I like the new front end rendering than the current one on Freestyle, but it really doesn't do much.

Marketshare falling? Sales of trucks and SUV's slowing? Gas prices rising?

Here at Ford of North America, we believe that instead of developing proper cars, we can create more crossovers and SUV's to sell. We don't really understand this ploy either, but we are sure it will work.

Considering the Freestyle gets nearly 20/27 fuel economy, I think your attempted slam at Ford is retarded. The FWD Freestyle gets better mileage than the FWD Equinox.

the latest updates are that the fairlane will be out in a year or two as a production concept.

the freestyle will still be made until at least then. but expect the facelift in another year along with the 500s.
