5 reasons to buy the 2014 Ford Flex

1. Spacious interior 

The first thing you'll notice about the Ford Flex is its size and the interior space that comes with it. It’s a three-row SUV with capacity for seven, making it a great choice for large families or friendship groups. The 2014 Ford Flex has wide, supportive seats in the first and second rows, and even the third-row seats can accommodate adult passengers for shorter trips. Front-row legroom measures 40.8 inches, with 44.3 inches and 33.3 inches for second- and third-row passengers, respectively. The boxy shape of the Flex also makes it easy to get in and out of the third row. 

2. Abundant room for cargo 

On top of the large cabin, the 2014 Ford Flex comes with a huge cargo area. In the trunk, there's 20 cu-ft of space, which is plenty for a couple of suitcases or carry-on bags for a short weekend trip. However, if you need even more space, you can fold the third-row seats and get 43.2 cu-ft, with the total cargo capacity measuring 83 cu-ft behind the first row. 

3. Connectivity features and amenities 

In addition to being spacious, the cabin of the 2014 Ford Flex is also nicely equipped with a few amenities and tech features to further improve the passenger experience. It comes standard with Ford’s Sync® system, which includes voice controls for phone and audio, Bluetooth® connectivity, a USB port, and a six-speaker sound system. You also get air conditioning, a six-way power-adjustable driver’s seat, and a leather-wrapped tilt-and-telescoping steering wheel as standard. 

4. Strong engine 

To move this large SUV, the 2014 Ford Flex must have a strong engine under the hood. The base model is powered by a 3.5L V6 engine paired with a six-speed automatic transmission. It generates 287 hp and 254 lb-ft of torque. This is the kind of power that allows the Flex to carry a full crew while still effortlessly merging into the highway. 

5. Towing abilities 

Given the muscular engine, it’s only natural to expect the 2014 Ford Flex to have a commendable towing capacity. When powered by the standard 3.5L V6 engine, it can tow an estimated 4,500 lbs when properly equipped.

This means you can bring your snowmobile or ATV along on your next trip. If that's not your style, how about a couple of motorcycles, a kayak, or a small trailer?
