Yes, we know the Ford Flex looks weird. It’s unique, box-like build is an acquired taste, but its designed that way to give you the most space you can get for an SUV of its class. Plus, if you normally travel with a large family, the Flex is perfect for both space and, most importantly, safety. Take a look and see why you should drive a Ford Flex as your new, spacious SUV.
Spacious and Cavernous
Most people second guess driving the Ford Flex because of its bold and boxy style, when in fact, it’s both the Flex’s trademark and its strength! Thanks to its unique box-like shape, the Ford Flex has an impressive seven-passenger seating capacity, with a standard 415L of interior cargo volume. If you really want to maximize the space inside the Flex, you can fold down its 60-40 split 2nd-row seats and 50-50 split 3rd-row seats to gain a maximum interior cargo volume of 2,355L. The huge space inside the Ford Flex is perfect for those looking for a Ford SUV in the middle of an Escape and an Explorer.
Built for Safety
Ever since its creation, Ford has always had families in mind to drive inside the Flex. That’s never been more evident than with its wide array of built-in and available safety features. For starters, the Flex became one of the worlds first SUVs to include automotive production inflatable rear safety belts that help distribute impact force energy evenly compared to traditional seat belts. These inflatable safety belts help reduce the risk of injury for everyone seated inside. Meanwhile, the Flex also gives you the option to add the Active Park Assist, which uses ultrasonic sensors to measure the distance between the curb and other cars, then automatically adjusts its steering to help you parallel park in the open spot.
Impressive Towing Capacity
Would you believe it if we told you that the Ford Flex can almost tow just as much as the Ford Explorer? For comparison, the Explorer can tow up to 5,000 lbs. when equipped with the available 3.5L EcoBoost V6 engine—but on the Ford Flex, it comes standard! Together, the Ford Flex is capable of towing up to 4,500 lbs. worth of extra cargo.
