Debuting last year to supplant the former Windstar minivan in Ford's line, the 2005 Freestar comes in several new colors and offers a liftgate spoiler on the SES model. Class I and Class II trailer towing packages are also newly available. Like its corporate cousin, the Mercury Monterey, the Freestar comes powered by a standard 193-horsepower 3.9-liter V-6 engine with aluminum heads; a 202-horsepower 4.2-liter V-6 is included in SEL and Limited models, and both powerplants drive the front wheels via a four-speed automatic transmission. Myriad family-friendly conveniences include power sliding rear doors, a power liftgate, back-seat entertainment system, and a third-row seat that folds flat into the floor without having to remove the headrests. Available safety features include AdvanceTrak stability control, a Safety Canopy side curtain airbag system, power adjustable pedals, and a reverse-sensing warning.

Perfectly practical, adequately sophisticated.
