Family-friendly space and modern creature comforts are the 2019 Ford Flex's fortes.The Flex stands apart from the competition with its innovative design. Part family-style wagon, part sporty crossover, the Flex has the massive passenger and cargo space you crave for big family adventures.
Why Buy the 2019 Ford Flex?
The Ford Flex offers supportive seating for six or seven passengers, depending on whether you select the second-row captain's chairs. Like the name suggests, the cabin is flexible, with a range of configurations to transport people and any unwieldy cargo. On a technical note, the Flex delivers everything you could want in terms of infotainment and safety options. The Sync 3 interface is easy to use and the forward collision warning system helps you stay vigilant on a busy highway.
Which Trim Model Is Right for Me?
To figure out which 2019 Ford Flex is your type, consider what you want out of your daily drive. On a practical level, you should also take your personal budget into consideration. Choose from three trim models: the budget-savvy SE, mid-range SEL, and upscale Limited.
Not only does the 2019 Ford Flex SE come with the friendliest MSRP - starting at $30,575 - but it also delivers plenty of family-friendly utility features. All seats are roomy and supportive, which means endless ride comfort. Both rear rows are split folding, so you can create extra cargo space for longer items without completely sacrificing seating. The leather-wrapped steering wheel is a nice touch, giving the cabin an element of modern style. In terms of infotainment, the SE furnishes the basics, like Bluetooth and a USB port for phone connectivity. The rearview camera expands visibility as you back out of a parking space in a busy lot.
Next up is the Flex SEL, which adds to the aforementioned items with a long list of modern creature comforts. The dual-zone automatic climate control system includes manual rear controls, perfect for long-term comfort on your next family road trip. Keyless entry and ignition are exactly what you need to pop in and out of your Flex with ease during a day full of errands. In the heated front seats, you'll enjoy a cozy winter ride. The SEL is the right pick for technophiles. The Sync 3 infotainment system includes a crisp, 8-inch touchscreen and voice controls. It's easy to operate as you move through traffic. Sync 3 also gives smartphone addicts some relief, via Apple CarPlay and Android Auto, displaying apps directly on the Sync 3 touchscreen.
With the 2019 Ford Flex Limited, just about everything that Ford has to offer is standard equipment. This equipment makes for a truly luxurious ride - especially when you take the leather upholstery, upgraded wood interior trim, and ambient interior lighting into account. The 12-speaker Sony premium audio system upgrades your infotainment experience. Modern conveniences, such as the 110-volt household power outlet and power-adjustable pedals, make the Limited feel like your home away from home.
Does the Ford Flex Offer All-Wheel Drive?
It surely does. Should you need the extra traction to carry you safely through winter, the 2019 Ford Flex offers optional all-wheel drive on both the SEL and Limited trim models. When you add the optional turbocharged V6 engine to your Flex Limited, all-wheel drive is standard equipment.
What Family-Friendly Features Does the Flex Offer?
The Flex's part-wagon, part-SUV design has major appeal for big families. This crossover is uniquely spacious, with a high ceiling to maximize head room and cargo hauling. In fact, it's got so much cargo space that you might be tempted to over pack for holidays and weekend trips. Behind the rear seats, you'll find 20 cubic feet for your golf clubs and fishing gear. Should you need extra space to haul home improvement supplies or moving boxes, fold down the two rear rows to create 83.2 cubes of max cargo space.
