The 2018 Ford Flex offers a wide range of features and amenities that have made it a top selling car in its class. Seated up to seven passengers and a sports cargo space, the Flex is the ideal wagon for large families.
All SUV 2018 Flex crossovers have three rows and standard seats for seven. In the SEL or Limited settings, you can exchange the 2nd row bench for a pair of bucket seats. This reduces the total number of passengers to six, but offers high-end accommodation for those in the second row, as well as easy access to the third row. Among Flex’s greatest attraction is the ease of entry and exit, making it the ideal choice for children and adults alike. In addition, the rear rows fold flat, just like the front passenger seat, allowing you to carry gear like a long board or an 8-foot ladder.
The Flex continues to stand out from almost every other vehicle on the road. Blocked and plated, this box has its own charisma. As with any other unique design, some people will love it, others will not. Less subjective is the driving height of Flex, which divides the various between the sedan and SUV well. This provides good visibility while not making you feel that you need a ladder to get in and out. A power luggage rack is optional on SEL and standard models on Limited, but it does not offer the elegant opening of foot-gestures that you can get on a Ford Explorer.
Ford’s long-lasting 3.5-liter V-6 pulls the Flex base. Rated at 287 horsepower and 254 lb-ft, it accelerates adequately and clicks on the 6 speeds of its automatic transmission without hindrance. Petrol mileage is better than turbo, but well below average for the three-row class. We would ignore the all-wheel drive here, as it oozes some of the available energy and wins gas bills.
The 2018 Ford Flex has a manufacturer’s price starting at $ 31,195 for a basic SE model and SEL model, which starts at $ 33,905.
