Anne Stevens, chief operating officer for Ford Americas, said today that due to changes in the game plan brought about by "The Way Forward," the Ford Freestyle won't be discontinued, and the Mercury crossover vehicle that was in the works to replace it is off the table.


Production of the Ford version of the vehicle, built in Chicago, was expected to halt in mid-2007, and despite the introduction of two new similar vehicles in the Ford Edge and the Lincoln Aviator, evidently the Freestyle will continue to be produced.

Thanks to Sully for the tip.
