2005 Ford Five Hundred Overview
Overall User Score
Based on 17 reviews
The 2005 Ford Five Hundred is a large family sedan introduced as a replacement for the beloved Ford Taurus. It's bigger, though, and sturdier - almost as big as the Crown Victoria, with a hefty curb weight of 3,364 pounds. You can definitely see the Volvo influence in the design and construction of the '05 Five Hundred; it's solid and boxy, and rides higher off the ground than the Taurus or Crown Vic.
Five adults can sit comfortably in the 2005 Five Hundred, and its roomy trunk can hold suitcases, golf clubs, musical instruments...pretty much everything but the kitchen sink in its 21.2 cubic feet of cargo space.
Not surprisingly, a car this big needs plenty of power to get it moving with anything approaching agility. And the '05 Ford Five Hundred has that power: You'll find a 3.0-liter, dual-overhead-cam V6 under the hood, clocked at 203 horsepower and 207 lb.-ft. of torque.
Three trim levels are available for the 2005 Ford Five Hundred: the base SE model, SEL, and Limited. All trims are offered in two-wheel and all-wheel drive versions.
And for a full-size sedan, the Ford Five Hundred doesn't have bad gas mileage, either. The EPA estimates it at 20 mpg city, 27 mpg highway - not the most fuel-efficient vehicle, but green as grass compared to most SUVs on the market.
