Ford, in re-examining its future line of crossover SUVs and minivans — recasting the lot of them as "people movers — confirmed plans to discontinue the current-model Freestyle after 2007. The poorly selling crosso-wagon-ute, apparently obsolete in Ford's paddock before it was introduced, will be dropped to make way for a new model of the same name. Still, as AutoWeek reports, a Mercury version of the current model will be produced in 2007, as planned. Other product changes in store include Volvo-derived minivans and new sport wagons based on the Mazda6 platform for Ford and Lincoln.
