Ford Freestar: Making Its Way after the Windstar

Replacing the Ford Windstar minivan in 2004, the Ford Motor Company introduced the Ford Freestar. This vehicle comes in five trim levels that includes the S, the SE, the Sport, the SEL, and the Limited. The Limited trim level uses chrome on its 16 inch wheels, door handles, and roof rack. The SEL trim level, on the other hand, receives bright and machine 16 inch wheels as well as redesigned front door panels.

Possibly because the Ford Freestar replaced the Ford Windstar in the company's line up of vehicles, this new vehicle holds a very similar appearance to the latter. It sports a body-colored grille, a chrome grille and five spoke aluminum wheels. This vehicle can also seat up to a maximum of seven passengers. The bucket seats in the second row of the vehicle include a fold and tumble feature. The third row seats have the capability to fold flat on the floor so as to maximize and add up cargo and storage space. The power of the Ford Freestar comes from the 3.9 liter V6 engine that has the capacity to produce some 193 units of horsepower. They also come with a four speed automatic transmission system.

Behind the wheel, the driver of the Ford Freestar is given the feeling of driving a truck. However, the V6 engine holds so much energy and the automatic transmission system processes just as well that the whole vehicle is able to yield prompt and smooth shifts. There is a moderate engine noise to be heard though. Overall, the vehicle is fairly easy to drive and is able to maneuver with ample agility. As for the ride, it is very much smooth on good surfaces. The seats could be quite short however, they offer especially good support. There is also ample front headroom and elbowroom.

The Ford Freestar comes with a couple of color choices for its exterior. The list includes vibrant white, Arizona beige, dark toreador red, spruce green, norsea blue, silver birch, and dark shadow gray. The features of this car include a six-way power driver seat, a six-way power passenger seat, heated seats for both the passenger and driver, air conditioning, a high capacity tri-zone climate control, an AM / FM stereo, a digital clock, a single CD player, an automatic speed sensitive volume control, a DVD entertainment system with the screen and player mounted on the ceiling, wireless headphones, rear seat audio controls, a tilt steering wheel, a rear window intermittent wiper and washer, a rear window defroster, speed control on the steering wheel, a temperature gauge, a tachometer, a low tire pressure warning, a digital clock, a day and night rearview mirror, and power heated mirrors.
