5 reasons to buy the 2015 Ford Flex

1. Muscular engine 

Starting with what’s under its hood, the 2015 Ford Flex comes with a standard 3.5L V6 engine that puts out 287 hp and 254 lb-ft of torque. It works together with a six-speed automatic transmission, and front-wheel drive is standard. This makes for good performances all around, especially when carrying a lot of cargo or when you need some extra power for merging onto the highway or passing other vehicles. 

2. Plenty of room for passengers 

Given that it's a three-row SUV, it should come as no surprise that the 2015 Ford Flex has a high passenger capacity. It has room for up to seven people, with all three rows sufficiently comfortable and convenient. Front passengers get 41.8 inches of headroom and 40.8 inches of legroom. There is 40.5 inches of headroom and 44.3 inches of legroom for second-row passengers. The third row understandably offers less space, but still enough for kids or even adult passengers for short trips, with 33.3 inches of legroom. 

3. Interior features 

As far as equipment is concerned, the 2015 Ford Flex comes with more than a few standard features that make for an enjoyable ride experience. For instance, there is a leather-wrapped tilt-and-telescoping steering wheel, along with a six-way power-adjustable driver's seat and folding second-and third-row seats. It also comes with an auto-dimming rearview mirror and a 4.2-inch central display screen with Ford's Sync® infotainment system. 

4. Amazing cargo capacity 

The 2015 Ford Flex is more than capable of meeting your cargo-hauling needs. You get 20 cu-ft of space in the trunk, with the overall capacity increasing significantly thanks to the folding seats in the second and third rows. There is 43.2 cu-ft with the third-row seats folded, and 80 cu-ft behind the first row. With this kind of capacity, the 2015 Ford Flex is a great option for vacations and road trips. 

5. Great towing capacity 

On top of the ample room for storage, the utilitarian aspect of the 2015 Ford Flex is further reflected through its ability to tow heavy things. With the base 287-hp, 3.0L V6 engine, the 2015 Flex can tow up to an estimated 4,500 lbs, when properly equipped.

That's enough for a small utility trailer, a flatbed trailer, a couple of canoes, kayaks, snowmobiles, or other recreational items you might want to bring along on your outdoor adventures.
