    Expert Rating

    4.7 (Excellent)
    17 City / 24 Highway

    Unlike other websites and magazines, our ratings are not based solely on a singular road test, but rather a more encompassing batch of criteria: quality, safety, comfort, performance, fuel economy, reliability history and value. When comparing vehicles using our Rating System, it's important to note that the rating earned by each vehicle correlates only to the models within its class. For example, a compact car cannot be compared to a SUV—They are different vehicles altogether.

    You can interpret our ratings in the following way:

    5-Star: Outstanding vehicle. Only the most exceptional vehicles achieve this rating.

    4-Star: Very Good vehicle. Very good and close to being the best vehicle in its class.

    3-Star: Good vehicle. Decent, but not quite the best. Often affordable, but lacking key features found in vehicles of the same class.

    2-Star: Below average vehicle. Not recommended, and lacking attributes a car buyer would come to expect for the price.

    1-Star: Poor vehicle. Simply does not deserve to be on the road.

    2013 Ford Flex OVERVIEW

    The Flex has continued to wow its owners with over 80 cubic feet of space to either pack up and move or stretch out and enjoy the ride. It is not only the first vehicle offered by Ford to deliver both minivan and SUV qualities, but also has more second and third-row leg room than any other vehicle in its class. Flex boasts a spacious three rows of seats that comfortably fit up to seven passengers, while still providing 20 cubic feet of cargo space behind the third row. Second and third-row seats fold flat into the floor, creating a total of 83.2 cubic feet of storage space for your cargo needs.

    With all power Amenities for this spacious SUV crossover, the Flex boasts the luxurious multi-panel Vista Roof, first-row heated and cooled seats, hands-free Sync with MyFord Touch (standard on all trims), side-view mirrors with security approach lamps, supporting voice calling that is hands free and an option for an interior refrigerator and remote-start system. Finally, a vehicle that allows drivers to say goodbye to road rage and let the Flex remove hassles as you focus only on the drive.

    The Ford Flex allows buyers to choose between two varieties of V6 engines. These engines are available in both AWD and FWD, the 3.5L Ti-VCT engine, producing 287 horsepower, that is coupled with the 6-speed SelectShift automatic transmission and the direct-injected twin-turbocharged EcoBoost produces 365 horsepower. The Flex also offers a generous fuel economy up to 25 MPG highway. Somehow, Ford engineering has managed to create this engine with more power, while decreasing its fuel economy.

    The Flex is available in three different trims (excluding Flex’s top-trim Titanium model); the SE, being the base model, the SEL and the Limited. All three models offer superior comfort and space for those long family trips with extra cushioning for an easy drive and lots of amenities.
