  • Ford Five Hundred


    The Ford Five Hundred is a full-size car that was produced by Ford from the 2005 to 2007 model years. Deriving its name from the Ford Fairlane 500 and Ford Galaxie 500 popularized during the late 1950s and early 1960s, the Five Hundred was introduced alongside the 2006 Ford Fusion to replace the Ford Taurus. The largest of the three sedans, the Five Hundred would also serve as an unofficial replacement for the Ford Crown Victoria in non-fleet markets. The Lincoln-Mercury Division marketed the Ford Five Hundred as the Mercury Montego, slotted below the Mercury Grand Marquis. As the Five Hundred was sold solely as a four-door sedan, the role of the Ford Taurus station wagon was taken over by the Ford Freestyle, repackaged as a crossover SUV. The Ford Five Hundred/Mercury Montego were based upon the Volvo-derived Ford D3 platform, marking the introduction of the first completely new full-size Ford since 1979. For the first time ever, a Ford full-size sedan was produced without rear-wheel drive. The Five Hundred/Montego utilize a standard front-wheel drive configuration; an electro-hydraulic Haldex all-wheel drive system is optional.
