CHICAGO – Freshened ’08 versions of the Chicago-built Ford Freestyle cross/utility vehicle and Mercury Montego sedan will be unveiled at the 2007 Chicago Auto Show, Cisco Codina, group vice president-sales and marketing for Ford Motor Co., says during a speech here at the Better Business Bureau of Metropolitan Chicago's annual meeting.

A freshened version of the ’08 Ford Five Hundred, also built here, probably will be unveiled at the Detroit auto show, but Codina declines to confirm that.
