2008 Ford Freestyle

Well, even though it looks like the '08 Freestyle gets the Edge's nose, it does look better than the current face. Thoughts?

actually the freestyle is to get a MUCH more substantial recesign..

it's looks should approximate the Fairline concept from aseveral years ago..



Which will probably keep the nose you have there, and make the rest somewhat more boxy

Actually I forgot to mention: I LOVE the way the Freestyle looks on Kneel's picture... I think it would be selling like hotcakes if it had looked like that from the start...

but the rumor is the redesign will be more substantial.. after all the 08 freestyle will have to take over the minivan market since Freestar is being killed.

I love Ford, but man do they make some ugly vehicles. I do like the fuzion, foci and mustang but no wonder they can't sell anything. Even the Ranger got ugly this year wit hthe new front end.

my wife has a freestyle and we both love that vehicle. i like the current styling but the three-bar front end is hawt!! i think that the freestyle pictured might be a 2007 model with the new nose. i agree with igor that from what i have read is the 2008 is going to be a major redesign. but then again why spend money on updating a vehicle that you are going to replace the next model year ??
