5 reasons to buy the 2019 Ford Flex

1. Powerful V6 engines

2019 Ford Flex Review:Engine | CarMax

The 2019 Flex's 287-hp V6 base engine with 254 lb.-ft. of torque has great get-up-and-go for carpooling or running errands around town. It pairs to a six-speed automatic transmission with standard front-wheel drive or you can add an optional all-wheel-drive system for more traction in tough conditions. An available turbocharged 3.5L V6 with 365 hp and 350 lb.-ft. of torque is also offered on the Ford Flex Limited. This engine comes standard with all-wheel drive and delivers strong acceleration, even with many passengers and lots of cargo in the cabin. With either of the 3.6L V6 engines, the 2019 Flex can tow an estimated 4,500 lbs. when properly equipped to pull a small trailer or pair of ATVs.

2. Plenty of room

If you need space for passengers and belongings, the 2019 Flex is a great multi-tasker. With the standard second-row bench seat, you'll have room for seven passengers, or you can opt for the available second-row bucket seats (SEL and Limited) to accommodate six passengers. With 33.3 inches of adult-friendly third-row legroom, the 2019 Flex is comfortable no matter where you sit, plus you'll have 20 cubic feet of cargo volume behind the third row for sporting equipment and a stroller. If you frequently transport garage sale finds, the Flex's second and third rows fold into the floor, providing you with a flat-load surface to easily transport bigger items or up to 83.2 cubic feet of cargo.

3. Comfortable ride

The 2019 Ford Flex is the ultimate road-tripper because of its balanced ride and quiet interior. The SUV's ride height provides great visibility from the driver seat and the large windows throughout the cabin let your passengers enjoy the views. If your travels take you into the city, you'll love the 2019 Flex's car-like maneuverability in tight spaces. The SUV's independent front and rear suspension with stabilizer bars also handle well on curvy roads with little body roll.

4. Stylish looks

With its distinctive boxy shape and wide, low-profile stance, the Flex has a personality all its own. Available in nine vibrant exterior colors—including ruby red and deep blue—there are many Ford Flex colors to suit your mood. SEL and Limited trims are also available with an Appearance Package that delivers even more style with a contrasting black roof, black beltline moldings, and large 20-inch high-gloss ebony black-painted machined aluminum wheels. Inside the cabin, the Appearance Package adds gray leather-trimmed seating with perforated inserts and a leather-wrapped steering wheel with black bezels to flex your style in comfort.

5. Connectivity features

The trim-topping Ford Flex Limited also features a standard voice-activated navigation system, which is handy for commuting and road trips.
