What year was the first Ford Freestyle SEL?

I had a Ford Freestyle SEL when I was younger and I loved it. Now that I’m in the market for a new car, I was thinking of going back to this particular trim and model. I’m aware they don’t make it anymore, but what was the first year the Ford Freestyle SEL was available?

That’s exciting that you’re in the market for a new ride! As the successor to the Ford Taurus Wagon, the Ford Freestyle SEL debuted in 2005. Ford continued the model until 2007 when it was replaced by the Ford Taurus X in 2008.
The Ford Freestyle SEL was the middle trim, slotted between the entry-level SE and the fully-loaded Limited. But even as a mid-level trim, it still had plenty to offer:
  • A 203-hp, 3.0-liter V6 engine
  • Fuel economy of 27 mpg highway/20 mpg city
  • 17-inch alloy wheels
  • A standard security system
  • A power driver’s seat
  • An AM/FM stereo with CD/MP3 player
  • Dual-zone automatic climate control with rear controls
