Ford Freestyle Remote Programming



The Freestyle, a 6- or 7-passenger full-size crossover SUV , was previewed at the 2003 Detroit Auto Show with a Freestyle Concept before entering production for the 2005 model year. The vehicle was originally going to be called the Ford CrossTrainer, but had been renamed the Freestyle by the time the concept was released. Although sales were initially respectable, the Freestyle was renamed the Taurus X when a facelifted model was unveiled at the 2007 Chicago Auto Show as a 2008 model.

The Freestyle had three rows of seats with seating for seven, like many large SUVs (e.g. Ford Explorer, Ford Expedition) and minivans. The Freestyle featured what Ford describes as "command seating," seating with a higher H-point, to increase driver visibility and ease of entry and exit.

The Freestyle was nominated for the North American Truck of the Year award for 2005 (second behind Escape Hybrid).
