The Ford Flex is a full-size crossover utility vehicle that can seat up to seven adults and carry luggage or groceries at the same time. It’s the modern-day equivalent of what used to be the family station wagon, but no old station wagon can match the comfort, utility, capabilities or driving enjoyment of the Flex.
The Flex has three rows of seats, with a standard 2-3-2 layout or optional 2-2-2 configuration. It’s built on a passenger-car platform, as opposed to that of a body-on-frame truck, and thus has the basic stance and friendly driving characteristics of a car.
The Flex is larger and roomier than the Ford Edge, and its three-row seating allows it to carry more people, and in more comfort. Its passenger-car platform makes it lower and more carlike than the Explorer or Expedition, and thus easier to drive and live with in daily use. Competitors for the Flex include the Chevy Traverse, GMC Arcadia, and Buick Enclave, though they are quite different in a variety of ways.
Flex SEL adds bright exterior trim, 18-inch machined alloy wheels, dual-zone A/C, Sony AM/FM/six-CD/MP3/satellite radio, leather seating surfaces, heated first-row seats, 10-way power driver seat, six-way power passenger seat, universal garage door opener and interior woodgrain trim.
