In 2001, the Windstar received a mild facelift that included revised front and rear fascias. Mechanical changes for 2001 included a new four-speed transmission that shifted more smoothly than the previous year. Despite these changes, Ford saw fit to allow the 200-horsepower, 3.8-liter V-6 to carry over from the previous year.
