I'm new, Limited vs SEL

Post by donald402 » Wed May 03, 2017 10:04 pm

I'm currently shopping for a Freestyle. We were so close to getting one today, but someone got to the dealership before me. :(

Can SELs have all the same features as the Limited models? Think I have seen SELs with every feature but navigation. Are there any features that none of the SELs come with?

This is tempting, but it's 6 hours from me.

Hi donald402,

Your best bet for determining the differences in features/packages/trims is to take a look at the old brochures from Ford online. There were variations in the trim levels and packages year over year; for example there was no SE trim offered in 2007, so a 2007 SEL can be a very base vehicle where as in 2006 it was midrange. There were also the 'odd' mid-year changes, etc., but this should give you a good baseline when shopping the different model years and trims.

The link to the 2007 brochure is pasted below, but this dealer has the '05 an '06 brochure posted as well.
