It featured a heavier-duty drive axle, larger wheel bearings and standard four-wheel disc brakes. Among the quietest of any minivan models, Ford Freestar was equipped with thick front side windows, a noise-absorbing dashboard panel and conformable constrained layer damping, a method of blocking road noise. Two engines were offered. A 3.9 L V6 that could produce 193 horsepower and 240 pound-feet of torque and a 4.2 L V6 engine that could produce 201 horsepower and 263 pound-feet of torque were its power sources. And both engines were paired with a 4-speed automatic transmission.
