2018 Ford Flex

With its versatile cargo space and unique wagon-style crossover design, the 2018 Ford Flex is in high demand. Families love its three roomy rows of seating and adventurers embrace the Flex’s all-wheel drive to take the road less traveled. These features, combined with the Flex’s tech-friendly approach, make the Flex a unique approach to the SUV craze that’s sure to make buyers happy.

The 2018 Ford Flex delivers three roomy rows of seating. Inside, you’ll find more than enough head and leg room for six or seven passengers, depending on whether your model has second-row captain’s chairs. At the wheel, the six-way power front passenger seat with lumbar adjustment means you’ll always be able to get comfortable. The dual-zone automatic climate control features manual rear controls, making it easy for each and every passenger to find his own personal Goldilocks zone.

The 2018 Ford Flex’s unique shape makes for an excellent cargo hauler. Behind the rear seats, the Flex’s 20 cubic feet of cargo space are the perfect spot for your groceries and daily carry-on items, including gym bags and briefcases. When it’s time for some good old-fashioned outdoor adventure, fold down the rear seats to create 43.2 cubic feet of space for your camping gear. If you’ve got home improvement supplies to cart home, fold down both rear rows for 83.2 cubic feet of maximum space.

With the Sync 3 infotainment system, the 2018 Ford Flex puts a modern spin on staying connected. The 8-inch touchscreen is crisp and clear, so you can get to the app you need with minimal distraction. You can use voice controls to make hands-free calls, and the system will even read your text messages to you. That way, you never miss a beat – but you also get to keep your hands on the wheel and your eyes on the road ahead. The Sync 3 system even includes Apple CarPlay and Android Auto, which displays smartphone apps like Maps and Messages directly on your central touchscreen, so you don’t have to mess with your phone while driving. And, more than infotainment, the Flex helps you stay connected with a 110-volt household-style power outlet that will charge your laptop on the way to work. It’s also got USB ports, making it easy to keep your devices charged when you’re far from home.

Finally, the 2018 Ford Flex is all geared up to keep you safe on the road. When you cruise busy highways with a cabin full of kids, you’ll maintain complete peace of mind, thanks to high-tech driver aids that alert you to nearby danger. Because it keeps you updated on any cars that have moved out of sight, the blind-spot monitor helps you switch lanes safely. The forward collision warning system does more than warn you danger – it actively primes the brakes so you have maximum stopping power in the face of potential accident. Ford even throws in some uniquely innovative features, like the MyKey system, which lets you set speed limits for teenage drivers. Every Flex has a rearview camera to help you spot any obstacles in your path – though rear visibility is pretty great even without it.

Toss in driver favorites like MyKey, which allows you to customize the driving experience of those you share the vehicle with (read: limit their speed and sound system volume), and the power liftgate and you have a driving experience worthy of the Ford badge.
