Freestyle to survive, at least for the short term, AutoBlog article and link

Finally some good news for the Freestyle. Rumors and reports were that the FreeStyle Crossover, based on the 500 sedan ( and Volvo XC-90,) was going to eliminated because of lackluster sales in it's first year. Despite favorable reviews and outstanding safety ratings, the FreeStyle did not skyrocket up the sales chart. But if you head on over to AutoBlog, you'll see that the FreeStyle will survive at least long enough for a facelift in 2007.

I've commented on the Freestyle extensively and think it's one of the best in it's class. And I like the styling. The interior is class leading in comfort and configurability. Hopefully a minor facelift and the new 3.5 V6 will help sales pick up.
