2005 Ford Five Hundred

Full Driver Side Rear View

What's Hot
Huge trunk
Roomy interior
Available all-wheel drive
What's Not
Derivative styling
Interior materials
Overtaxed, unrefined engine

What's New
For 2006, Ford will make the Five Hundred's interior even more accommodating by offering an optional roof-mounted DVD player for rear-seat passengers. Front-seat occupants will have to be content with looking at the video screen of the new, optional navigation system.

Key Options
The side and curtain airbags are essential safety items. All-wheel drive helps tame the weather, but it adds weight and lowers fuel economy. The rear-seat DVD player (from fall 2005) will be a hit with parents.

Others to Consider
Buick Lucerne, Chrysler 300, Toyota Avalon
