2009 Ford Flex Limited: Surprise Utility

February 01, 2010

Here's a little surprise I stumbled into this morning while fiddling with the Flex's seats. This might very well give the Flex the ability to carry a ten-foot-long piece of cargo (like, say, a 2x4 or rain gutter or any other piece of hardware sold in that length) without cutting it down. I haven't measured it, but it looks possible.

This release on the back of the seat is used to drop it forward as seen in the first picture. I hadn't ever noticed it until today, but I'm glad Ford thought of this need. It increases the Flex's utility -- possibly into the world of the minivan.
