The 2013 Ford Flex is a full-size crossover utility vehicle that can accommodate up to seven adults and carry luggage or other cargos at the same time. It’s the modern-day comparable of what used to be the family station wagon nothing can match the comfort, utility, capabilities or driving satisfaction of the Ford Flex, with three rows of seats, and a standard 2-3-2 layout or optional 2-2-2 configuration. It’s designed on a passenger-car platform, and different to that of a body-on-frame truck, and thus has the essential attitude and friendly driving uniqueness of a car.
The 2013 Ford Flex looks very elegant even on first look, with an attention-getting and stylish kind of manner. The hood and roof are extensive and smooth, the windshield stands tall and stands with pride, side body panels are vertical, side glass is nearly vertical, and the tailgate could be plotted with a T-square. The overall exterior shapes propose an interior room with utmost space consumption. The Flex’s shape is very humble, simple and elegant.
The Ford Flex is very useful for people that need a vehicle with cargo-carrying ability, and stands proud with its exterior design. There’s outstanding design everywhere, both in the overall look of the vehicle and in the details. A fair amount of brightwork places the Flex separately from other CUV type vehicles. A signature three-bar Ford grille in a muted silver finish broadens across its hood. Its front bumper foglights are covered in greatly reflective jeweled background. Door mirror housings are not only chromed, but the caps have little tab-like crenellations that shine in sunlight. The Flex also comes with bright standard 19-inch polished alloy wheels, and also has large chrome door handles, bright window surrounds, and a shiny band running across the tailgate that repeats the front grille theme.
The 2013 Ford Flex is powered by the regular 3.5-liter V6, with double overhead-cams and 262 horsepower, has more than enough power for normal driving circumstances, along with excellent torque to either tow a 2000–pound load in standard form or a 4500-pound load with the optional trailer towing package. The 6-speed automatic transmission does its job efficiently and well. We found it was rarely, if ever, caught in the wrong gear. The EcoBoost V6, with its 355 horsepower and 350 pound-feet of torque, is a wonder of power and response, and brings with its supplementary output only a small penalty in fuel economy, being rated at 16/21 City/Highway mpg. Fuel economy of the Flex has an EPA-estimated 17/24 mpg City/Highway, 16/22 mpg with four-wheel drive.
To summarize, the Ford Flex is a large, stylish and incapable crossover vehicle that can bring six or seven passengers and a fair quantity of cargo in luxury and comfort. It is easy to access, easy to use, easy to drive over short and long distances, and comfortable for everyone. The exterior design is distinctive and outstanding. The interior is filled with clever details and surprise-and-delight features and high-tech feel all around. This Flex is built for families who require a great vehicle, the Ford Flex presents the whole thing you would want in the way of a gratifying and rewarding automobile to own and drive.
