Ford Flex Overview

The boxy Flex combines SUV-like versatility with carlike driving dynamics. The interior is versatile, with room for up to seven passengers in three rows. And its shipping-carton shape works well for cargo. Rear visibility is hampered by big head restraints, and the MyFord Touch interface is complicated and distracting. Handling is not particularly agile, but the ride is comfortable and the cabin remains quiet. The base 3.5-liter V6 has been updated and gets 18-mpg overall. Choosing the turbo V6 gives you quicker acceleration at a cost of just 1-mpg overall. Reliability of the turbocharged V6 is well below average, but reliability with the nonturbo V6 has been average.
