So far all Ford is showing of the upcoming Five Hundred is a soft rendering. But we#146;ve caught the real thing! Granted, it is covered in camouflage, but there is no mistaking #150; this is the 2005 Five Hundred.
The Chicago-built Ford Five-Hundred, code named D258, has obvious European influences in its overall design. Powered by a Duratec 3.0-liter V-6, the Five Hundred will be offered with either a six-speed automatic transmission or a CVT. Front-wheel drive will be standard, with an all-wheel drive option available.
The Five Hundred will be sharing its platform with the future Freestyle crossover and is expected to be at dealerships sometime in 2004. We#146;re anticipating pricing in the $25,000 to $30,000 range.
