Jalopnik reported that Ford Motor Company intends on ceasing production of two models as of Spring 2009. First up?
Ford Taurus X
Known to us first as the Freestyle in 2004, the Taurus X was Ford’s first attempt at a crossover. Critics praised the Taurus X for its packaging and handsome looks. The general consensus was that the car made a lot more sense to typical suburban families than the Explorer. On the negative side, the Freestyle was saddled with an underpowered V-6 engine and an unimpressive CVT transmission.Ã‚Â
