My husband and I wanting a vehicle that had 3 rows (for our growing family) and could comfortably fit his physique (my husband is 6'6'' and a muscular 290 lbs). We also wanted a vehicle that had good gas mileage for an SUV and was priced reasonably. After looking at other vehicles, we were a little bit discouraged at the price - we didn't want to spend over 30K since we were trading in our other vehicle and still owed 9k on that car. That being said, my husband did some research for vehicles that "fit tall people" and the Ford Flex came up as one of them. Neither him nor I had ever seen one before, let alone sat in one. Let me just say, the Flex is SUPER comfortable! It has soft leather that just cushions your body so nicely! What I also like about the vehicle is that you push a button and the middle row folds down on its own - no pushing/pulling/manual labor to fold down those seats. Also, with just a push of a button, the back door opens and closes as well. The vehicle is large like an SUV but sits a little lower, so the view is kind of like driving a car. A week after we bought it we drove from D.C. to Sacramento, moving for work, with our 7 month old daughter and 2 cats. We could not have been happier with the experience thanks to how awesome the Flex is. There was SO MUCH room in the 2nd row, and lots of storage space in the back (we put down the 3rd row). Even with towing a trailer and driving through the mountains, we were getting 19+ miles to the gallon!!! I can not say enough great things about this vehicle! We love it and are very happy with this investment!
Love my flex

I love my flex! The only negative thing I have to say is that it doesn't quite have the power to it, that get up and go. But other than that I love everything else. It does exactly what I need it to.

We were looking at SUVs and the Ford Flex wasn't even on the radar. Once it popped up on the search and we actually looked at one and drove it we were sold. Cool nontraditional body style gets lots of attention and sets it apart from the cookie cutter styles of the day. Creature comforts all over the interior and the ride is a dream. You won't find a better buy for the money anywhere. We love it!!
The Ford F-150, the top-searched vehicle on carmax.com in 2017, has a heck-raising version called the SVT Raptor. Love it or not, the Ford Raptor is impossible to ignore. It rules the road (and dirt, mud, sand, etc.)!
SUVs are known for not just their seating and towing capacity, but their versatile cargo space and capable performance. In the market for a midsize SUV? Check out three of our best-selling midsize SUVs from January through September 2017.
