While there have been rumors of the end of the Ford Flex, we still have it for the 2018 model year, which makes it possible for you to enjoy what this exceptional vehicle brings to the market.
The Ford Flex is part SUV, part station wagon and part minivan to be the model that fits the family, gives you the look and feel you want and brings in the cargo space you’ve been searching for. With three rows of seats, you can enjoy the space for six or seven people to ride along for the drive. Even those who are in the rear seat will feel comfortable in this gorgeous model.
In addition to being a comfortable family vehicle, the Ford Flex is offered with SUV features you want such as AWD to make it possible to contend with inclement weather while on the road. This boxy and low riding model makes getting in and out easy for you while giving you the interior space you’re looking for on the road. In a market where most models are becoming smaller and more curvaceous, the Flex continues to carry the singular style that we’ve grown to admire on this SUV.
There aren’t many changes that have been made for the 2018 year when you’re shopping for the Ford Flex. The Blue Jeans color and style is gone in favor of blue and the new Sync 3 infotainment system has been added to give you the benefits of the connectivity you need with Apple CarPlay and Android Auto. This impressive vehicle is one you’re going to love to drive and your family will be glad you chose when it’s time to hit the road and go where you need to on a daily basis.
The Power You Need
From under the hood of the Ford Flex, you’re going to be able to enjoy the power you want with one of two V6 engines. Both are 3.5-liters in size with one being naturally aspirated which offers you 287 horsepower and 254 lb.-ft. of torque while the twin-turbocharged EcoBoost model that pumps up the power to 365 horsepower and 350 lb.-ft. of torque. Both are attached to a six-speed automatic transmission with a manual shift mode. You’ll also be able to tow up to 4,500 pounds with the Flex, making this a powerful and capable SUV that can be perfect for you on the road.
Features that are Right for You
A step up from the Ford Expedition, there are three trim levels for the 2018 Ford Flex which is SE, SEL and Limited. The SE model offers you a rearview camera with a reverse sensing system, climate controls with a rear auxiliary system, an audio and infotainment system with Bluetooth phone connectivity, USB/auxiliary inputs, the basic version of Sync and more. Move up to the SEL and add dual-zone climate controls, heated front seats, push-button starting, a ten-way power driver’s seat and the SYNC 3 infotainment system that allows you to use the Apple CarPlay and Android Auto connectivity.
Choosing options for this SUV will bring you to the Limited model which offers a power tailgate, leather seats, blind spot monitoring, a navigation system, and a Sony premium audio system. All models can be had with AWD except the base trim and all can be had with inflatable rear seatbelts. The SEL and Limited trims offer the option of power folding rear seats, the Multi-panel Vista Roof, a heated steering wheel and ventilated front seats. The EcoBoost engine is only offered on the Limited trim which also allows you to add active park assist to aid you in completing the task of parallel parking.
