If it looks like a rose and smells like a rose . . . well, it's a rose.

From Car & Driver

"The 2005 Ford Freestyle intends to be a mid-size wagon that can host up to seven . . ."

Granted the term "station" wagon is diminishing. But wagons are still out there.
Volvo
Mercedes
Ford
Cadillac
BMW
Volkswagen
etc.

From Ford's original marketing material:

"Freestyle is the crossover done right. We didn't try to adapt an existing minivan or sport utility platform. Freestyle is built from the ground up as a crossover with class-leading spaciousness, seven-passenger comfort, versatility and all-wheel-drive capability. And through it all, Freestyle will deliver with the value that defines it as a Ford. We believe these strengths give Freestyle the strongest potential to define the crossover market -- much like the Ford Explorer defined SUVs a decade ago."

- Phil Martens
Group Vice President, Product Creation, Ford Motor Company

That said, call it whatever makes you happy.

It's SHO time!

Mine's too handy to get rid of, inexpensive to maintain and I haven't made a car payment since May of 2000. Besides, after rebuilding the front and rear ends and fixing the A/C and rebuilding the transmission it's mechanically all of two years old now. No rust, everything works that needs to. It's a keeper.

Cancer sucks. Cancer post-op is almost worse than the cancer. Best part is, being alive to b*tch about it!

Anyone got some nice pics of their wagon? It would be nice to see a Long Roof submitted

Apparently the word station wagon is not in Ford's lexicon.
Although some still use the word wagon. Sports Wagon, etc.
Here is one site that still uses the words station wagon.

LINK

The Ford Flex apparently is called a "crossover" - whatever that means.

So to add more to this INFORMATIONAL topic, here's a Gen4(and I believe Gen3 as well) specific part that you are not going to be able to find and WILL go bad on your wagon's rear suspension, and what I did to fix the problem
