2019 Ford Flex: Preview, Pricing, Release Date & Photos

Model Preview

For 2019, order guides indicate the Ford Flex won’t undergo any big changes, but there will be a handful of tweaks to its color options. Visually, the 2019 Flex will be identical to the current model, including its spacious and useful cabin. Where we do expect some changes is to its list of color options, as Ford will add two new colors, Agate Black and Stone Gray, and delete two others, Shadow Black and White Gold.

With no changes anticipated, we also expect the 2019 Flex’s list of standard features to remain the same. If this proves true, the Flex will include 17-inch wheels, rear parking sensors, heated mirrors, an auto-dimming rearview mirror, a leather-wrapped steering wheel, a six-way power driver’s seat, a 4.2-inch central screen, a six-speaker audio system, and a USB port.

Under its hood, the Flex will remain unchanged. This 3.5-liter V6 will roll in with 287 horsepower and 254 pound-feet of torque, while the optional engine will remain a 3.5-liter turbocharged V6 with 365 hp and 350 lb-ft of torque. Both engines will pair with a six-speed automatic transmission. The base V6 will come standard with front-wheel drive, while the turbocharged V6 will come with all-wheel drive.

The 2018 Flex has some black marks in safety, as the IIHS rates it just “Acceptable” in its small-overlap crash test, while its headlights only receive only a “Marginal” rating. It’s also lacking in advanced safety features, leaving it with only a “Basic” rating in front-crash prevention. We expect this to all remain the same for 2019.

Pricing & Release Date

The 2019 Ford Flex is expected to begin production in mid-May.

We expect pricing to remain virtually unchanged when compared to the 2018 Flex, which ranges from $31,190 to $47,595 (destination fees included).

Competition will include the Mazda CX-9, Toyota Highlander, and GMC Acadia.
