Family Reviews the 2013 Ford Flex


The 2013 Ford Flex has family duty down pat: This three-row SUV has a low step-in height that makes it easy for kids to climb into its spacious interior, and it can haul six or seven passengers. Rear cargo space is about half the size of the average minivan’s cargo area, but it’s better than many three-row crossovers. One downside to the Flex is its boxy exterior doesn’t make for the most agile handling.

2013 Ford Flex Review

I know the styling of the Flex has been polarizing but I have always found it to be refreshingly handsome. I love the fact that it's not the same boring SUV/Minivan body.

The Flex has been around for a while now so Ford must be doing something right with it.


This is the first time I have seen this vehicle referred to as an SUV.

It's a more sporty way to drive around a big family, but with such poor fuel economy it doesn't justify the purchase of this mommy mobile. Though I like this Flex a lot, it would make better business sense to drop it from the Ford line all together. A lighter more fuel efficient crossover or choke me for admitting this, but even a low volumn mini van that is on par with the Odyssy would make more sense.
