2006 Ford Five Hundred Review

The Car Connection Expert Review

Five Hundred

 

This contemporary large sedan debuted last year and continues for 2006 with only minor alterations, including a new exterior color, Silver Birch. It shares platforms with both the Ford Freestyle and Volvo XC90 crossover sport-utility vehicles, and the Mercury Montego sedan. It comes with a well-designed interior that offers generous passenger room in both the front and rear, with upright seating and truly large trunk. Coming in either front- or all-wheel-drive, the Five Hundred is powered by a just-sufficient 200-horsepower 3.0-liter V-6 engine that can be fitted to either a continuously variable transmission or an available six-speed automatic. A fully independent suspension offers surprisingly capable handling; traction control and self-leveling rear shock absorbers are optional on front-drive versions and are standard on all-wheel-drive models. Side-impact airbags and Ford's Safety Canopy rollover protection system are optional, as are a fold-flat front passenger seat and reverse parking assist. For 2006, a rear DVD entertainment system is newly offered on SEL and Limited models, a navigation system is offered on the Limited, and the availability of leather seating is extended to the SE trim level.

Maybe they should have called it the Floridian.

By far the cheapest car to own and operate over many years. I bought this car with 400 miles on it and now it has over 165k. Tires, oil and gas have been my only expenses with the Ford Five Hundred.
