Ford notes that the overall design is "more sculpted than chiseled, more capable than rugged," so the Freestyle is "definitely not a minivan." To head off such comparisons, Ford points out the Freestyle's long hood, high belt line and flared wheel arches.

I specifically cite two new models that were touted at the recent Chicago Auto Show -- the 2004 Monterey minivan and the 2005 Montego sedan -- as examples of the brand's potential resurgence, provided the marketing department doesn't bungle the launch and long-range positioning.
Although the basic sheet metal doesn't look that different from the Ford models from which they're derived, the Monterey and the Montego look crisp, clean, contemporary and distinctive, at least from the front three-quarter view.
