2018 Ford Flex Review

Sporting a bold style all its own the Ford Flex is a crossover you can’t help but notice. And with its progressive design intelligent technologies and spacious cabin the Flex is also a uniquely versatile package. It comes in three distinct models: SE SEL and the fully loaded Limited. Let the sky in with the available Multi-Panel Vista Roof It features four skylights that cover all three rows of seats. That includes an available PowerFold third-row seat which helps you access more than 83 cubic feet of cargo space with the touch of a button. Under the hood an available 3.5-Liter EcoBoost V-6 combines direct fuel injection with twin turbocharging for maximum power and amazing efficiency to get you where you’re going in time and under budget. Your Flex is smarter than ever with available driver-assist technology that alerts warns and can even auto-maneuver. You’ll love the easy-to-use SYNC infotainment system and its LCD touchscreen and the free FordPass app= lets you access your Flex with your smartphone. Choose from a variety of colors options and accessories and build a Flex that’s all yours. The Ford Flex. It’s distinctively different.
Your Ford Flex has the technology you want. Keep your eyes on the road your hands on the wheel and stay connected with voice-activated SYNC technology. Available navigation with SiriusXM Traffic and Travel Link uses GPS technology and 3-D mapping to provide voice-guided turn-by-turn directions so you can avoid congestion and get home sooner. Download the free FordPass app and you can find gas and parking spots schedule service appointments and more. Your Ford Flex. It’s packed with technology.
Just because it’s stylish doesn’t mean the Ford Flex comes up short on safety. Available Blind Spot Information System with Cross-Traffic Alert tells you if something’s in your blind spot—it’s like having an extra set of eyes on each side of your vehicle. An adaptive cruise control system maintains your speed when the road is clear and slows the car when it detects slower traffic ahead. When activated rain-sensing wipers automatically clear your windshield. Safety. It’s built into every Ford Flex.
The Ford Flex is no weakling. Need to carry seven passengers and their luggage while you’re towing a boat? The Flex’s standard 3.5-liter V-6 has plenty of power and torque. If you want more a 3.5-liter EcoBoost V-6 combines twin turbocharging and direct fuel injection to deliver 365 horsepower—and an EPA-estimated rating of up to 23 miles per gallon. Add available Intelligent All-Wheel Drive and you’ll have the confidence to tackle any road no matter what the weather is doing. The Ford Flex. More power to you.
