Ford has undertaken an ambitious plan to reshape their model line-up for 2005. A source of pride among Ford fans, the Mustang emerges in 2005 heavily borrowing from the appearance of the initial pony car first sold in 1964. Replacing the Taurus wagon, Ford the new Five Hundred sedan positioned as a replacement to both the Taurus as well as the rear-wheel drive Crown Victoria. A highly practical crossover vehicle-like Freestyle is offered as a companion to the Five Hundred's platform. Ford has resurrected the image of their Ferrari-fighting GT40 in the form of a high-performance road car. Sporting a retro appearance couple with modern engineering, the limited production Ford GT supercar is powered by a 5.4-liter V-8 engine. Besides performance engineering, Ford has also undertaken forward-thinking measures in improving fuel efficiency. A fuel economical continuously variable transmission is equipped on the Five Hundred and Freestyle. Recorded as the first gasoline-electric hybrid vehicle to be sold by a major American automaker, the 2005 Escape Hybrid can travel up to 36 miles on a gallon of fuel in city driving. Other changes to the Ford line-up in 2005 consist of an extensive facelift to the Focus and electronic stability control added standard to the Explorer.
