2017 Ford Flex Expert Rundown Review

Looking for a wagonlike crossover with space and versatility? The 2017 Ford Flex may be a good match. Here's a quick rundown of what we like, what we don't and the bottom line from the Edmunds editors.

Transcript

Josh Sadlier: This is Edmund's editor Josh Sadlier, and here's an expert rundown of the 2017 Ford Flex. The Flex the crossover that just won't quit. If you can believe it, we had a long term Flex way back in 2009 here Edmunds. Still the same basic vehicle but, don't let that dissuade you. Still a great family option, three rows with adult sized space in all three. Standard V6 gets the job done, available all wheel drive. Of course we prefer the optional twin turbo V6, pumps out well over 300 horsepower, turns this thing into surprisingly fast minivan alternative, but it's pretty pricey so going to have to check the bottom line on that one. As you can tell from the breadbox styling, plenty of space inside. Maximum utility, fold down those seats so you can fit a bunch of construction supplies in there if you're so inclined. Step inside you'll see what I'm talking about with the passenger space, looks like a couch in there. Nice and high on the bottom cushion, plenty of headroom. You can see the optional glass panels on the roof there, lend a nice airy feel. In the third row, there's legitimate adult space, you can't say that about every three row crossover. You have no problem getting taller people back there. Up front the Flex has a conservative but stylish dashboard design. Sync 3 is a notable improvement over the previous MyFord touch infotainment system. It's a new touch screen, good graphics, responsive, easy to use. Nice materials too. The bottom line with the Flex is that it hasn't changed very much because it hasn't had to. It's still a fully competitive family hauler, certainly worth a look alongside other crossovers.
