    Taurus/Taurus X question:

    Okay, we know that the Ford Five Hundred has been re-named "Taurus" for 2008, but now I see there is also a crossover vehicle called the "Taurus X" for 2008 as well. Is this another re-named existing product? If so, which one?

    Re: Taurus/Taurus X question:

    In a former life it was the Freestyle minivan/wagon/crossover/whatever it was.

    They've dressed it up -- it looks much better than it used to be, and is reasonably priced. Only feature that seems to be missing is a vehicle stability system.

    Ah, thanks!

    Does the Freestyle/Taurus X share its platform with a passenger car? If so, which one?

    Yes, it's an updated Freestyle wagon... the one that looks sort of like the Explorer.
