I haven't heard yet. I've been keeping in touch with Ford Media but they haven't said.

Yup, it's the Aisin AW six-speed automatic. Well I got the info direct from Ford media, so it must be correct 8)

Let me know if you have any thoughts on that. The ads support the site so be sure to click on an ad if i...

I haven't seen any reviews. They should be coming within the next month or so. I haven't heard about the mileage yet either. That usually doesn't come until very close to the date that the vehicle hits the showroom floor.

The Freestar is a van.... do you mean Montego (the Mercury twin to the Five Hundred)? If that's the case, then yes, I'll add info relevant to that car too.

Yes, the lower models won't have woodgrain, they'll have carbon-fiber. If that's my choice, I'd take the wood over the tacky carbon-fiber any day. :) Quote from the specifications overview page: The interior styling builds on the same theme, with inviting materials and surface treatments – from smoo...

I'm pleased to announce that I've added 2 new forums. They are: Everything Else - This is a place to talk about an aspect of the car that isn't included in the other forums (e.g. When will this car be at my local dealership?, etc.) General Topics - This is a catch-all forum.

What vehicles do you own?

I'll start.

I currently have a 2000 Ford Taurus SEL & a 1998 Ford F-150 XLT 4x4.

Previously I have owned a 1992 Mercury Sable, 1986 Ford Mustang LX, 1976 Dodge Ram, 1982 Ford Mustang L, and a 1982 Pontiac 2000.

How about you?

New models usually start showing up on dealers lots in September. Around here, anyway. You might want to contact your local dealer, if you are a potential customer, I'm sure they'll let you know when you can start ordering. You might even be able to order one in the summer.....

Hmm.... I just noticed. It looks like the clock is also part of the radio display...

I guess the white (analog?) clock will be an option since it doesn't appear in all of the photos.

Sorry, I wish I knew. I guess we'll have to wait until we get more info from Ford. I'm not aware of anyone that's test driven the vehicle yet.
