The Ford Motor Company manufactured a minivan known as the Ford Freestar between the years of 2004 and 2006. It served as a replacement vehicle for the Ford Windstar. The change of the vehicle’s name was part of Ford’s strategy to re-name all their vehicles with names beginning with the letter F.
The Ford Freestar and its sister vehicle, the Mercury Monterey, were both built in the Canadian town of Oakville, Ontario.
The Ford Freestar is capable of fitting up to seven passengers. The Ford Freestar features a four-speed electronically controlled automatic transmission. This is meant to be part of the van’s standard equipment.
The Ford Freestar is offered in five trim levels – Base, SE, Sport, SEL, and Limited. In the United States of America, there are two gas powered V6 Configurations available on the vehicle. The smaller 3.9 L Configuration develops a power of up to 193 hp at 4500 rpm and 240 ft / lbf of torque at 3750 rpm.
The larger, 4.2 L Configuration offers power of up to 201 hp at 4250 rpm and 263 ft / lbf of torque at 3650 rpm. In the United States of America, the smaller Configuration comes on the base model. In Canada, however, the larger Configuration is used as the standard.
