Ford Unleashes the Strength of All-New Freestyle
The automotive industry has predicted that crossovers will make it big in the driving world. Further, the industry anticipated that crossovers will outsell SUVs. This anticipation was made apparent in the launching of the all-new Ford Freestyle.
Ford Motor Company hitched on the modern car trends as it introduced in 2004 its crossover named Freestyle. At that time, crossover does not really ring a bell. In fact, it sounded more like a stitch technique than a vehicle.
Nowadays, crossover is getting a whole new different attention as it invades the automotive world with a brand new power, performance and a raging elegance. Ford is soon to launch MKX and Edge. On one hand, Mazda will also make a debut for its CX-7 and CX-9. Indeed, the consumers are now unraveling the true worth of CUVs.
"We're still defining the segment. Even though crossovers are becoming more popular, the general public is still unclear as to what is a crossover. Is it like an SUV, or a station wagon, or something else?," says Tom Aubrey, marketing manager of Freestyle.
Aubrey further added, "We had to define the SUV to customers and that simply takes time. We're now in the same position with crossovers. As more CUVs reach the market, customers should begin to become more familiar with the segment's strengths."
The 2006 Ford Freestyle has gained the highest rating of Good. Aside from that, it bagged the “best pick” designation in frontal offset crash test performance by the Insurance Institute for Highway Safety (IIHS). Freestyle is also considered as a top performer in the rollover stability test conducted by the government.
2007 Freestyle updates include the installation of SIRUIS satellite radio as well as DVD Navigation. Quality aftermarket Ford Freestyle parts also include beefy 18-inches wheels. Two striking colors are made available for Freestyle - the Alloy Clearcoat Metallic and Dune Pearl Clearcoat Metallic. These are the strengths and versatility incorporated in the new Freestyle.
