2008 Ford Freestyle
Form the changes they made to the 500, it looks like the Freestyle will be much improved thanks to a new engine/transmission combo and better materials inside.
Which is pretty much what I didn’t like in my review from last year.
The CVT was the worst transmission I had ever driven (including other CVTs). The car seemed to be deciding for me what to do, no matter what my right food was doing.
A weird, unsettling and sometime dangerous behavior.
But now they replaced all that by a “regular” 6 speed auto and the new 3.5 Liter V6.
I also noticed the plastics were very cheap for a car of this class and size. This seems to have been much improved in the new 500 as well.
How about the cool black/tan interior combo from the new 500 and the glass roof from the Edge.
