Ford cars with Haldex AWD system at Detroit Auto Show

Ford cars with Haldex AWD system at Detroit Auto Show Haldex informed in a press release dated April 2001, that an AWD contract had been secured from an American car manufacturer. At the recent auto show in Detroit the result was shown: production version of three new Ford cars - Ford Freestyle, Ford Five Hundred and Mercury Montego, all equipped with Haldex AWD system. The three cars are built on similar platforms but target different customer groups. Freestyle is a crossover; Five Hundred a sedan; and Mercury Montego an upscale sedan.
