    2019 Ford Flex OVERVIEW

    The Ford Flex is a perfect example of the, “if it’s not broken don’t fix it” philosophy. Entering its third year of production without any significant changes (including pricing), this multipurpose SUV continues as one of Ford’s consistent selling entrants. The 2019 Ford Flex has the cargo space of a station wagon, the seating capacity of a minivan, and rides on an SUV platform.

    What's New for 2019

    There are no significant changes for the 2019 Ford Flex.

    Choosing Your Ford Flex

    The Ford Flex is a practical daily driver that provides consumers with flexibility. It can carry seven passengers comfortably, has plenty of space for groceries and cargo, and returns decent fuel economy. The Flex returns an EPA-estimated 16 miles per gallon city, 23 mpg highway, and 19 combined.

    The Ford Flex is offered with two powertrain options. A 3.5-liter V6 engine is the base entrant and delivers 287 horsepower and 254 pound-feet of torque. A turbocharged 3.5-liter EcoBoost V6 is offered as an upgrade with the Limited trim, which will tack on an additional $3,350. The turbo belts out 365 hp and 350 lb-ft of torque. Each engine is paired with a six-speed automatic transmission, with front-wheel drive being standard fare. Consumers choosing the SEL and Limited can opt for all-wheel drive for an additional $1,950.

    The 2019 Ford Flex is once again offered in three trims: SE, SEL, and Limited.


    The base Flex is the SE, which starts at $31,570 (all prices include the $995 destination charge). It rides comfortably on 17-inch wheels and features cloth seating, a power-adjustable driver seat, blind-spot mirrors, and rear parking sensors. This trim is rather bare bones but does include an audio system with USB connectivity. Consumers can choose between five exterior colors and two interior patterns. There are no added performance or convenience packages available on the SE.


    The mid-range SEL is priced from $34,285 and provides Flex owners with a ton of added features. The Ford Flex SEL features 18-inch wheels, heated front seats, fog lights, dual-zone climate control, an intelligent proximity key with push-button start, and Ford’s SYNC 3 infotainment system, which includes Apple CarPlay and Android Auto connectivity. Consumers have six standard exterior color options, but can opt for Burgundy Velvet or Ruby Red for an additional $395 or White Platinum for $595.

    The SEL also opens the door to convenience packages. The 202A Equipment Group ($2,400) adds a seven-speaker audio system, leather upholstery, blind-spot monitoring with rear cross-traffic alert, a driver seat memory function, and a power liftgate. A no-cost Appearance Package brings blacked-out exterior trim, black wheels, and a contrasting black roof. Consumers can add navigation as a stand-alone item for $795 extra but must add the 202A Equipment Group first.


    The Flex range-topper is the Limited trim which starts at $39,785. The Flex Limited picks up where the SEL leaves off (with the 202A Equipment Group features included) and adds HID headlights and 19-inch wheels. Most consumers choose the Limited to stuff that 3.5-liter twin-turbocharged EcoBoost under the hood (for an additional $3,350). However, to add the upgraded engine, you’ve got to also add all-wheel drive for $1,950 extra and the 301A Equipment Group ($2,900, the engine, dual exhaust system, 20-inch aluminum wheels).

    The 301A Equipment Group ($2,900) adds active park assist, a power tilt/telescoping steering wheel, 10-way power front seats, heated and ventilated front seats, a power-folding third-row seat, a heated steering wheel, adaptive cruise control, and forward collision warning with brake support. An Appearance Package ($1,495) can be added to the Limited, which brings leather seating, 20-inch black wheels, black exterior mirror caps, a black center grille bar, and other interior trim enhancements.

    CarsDirect Tip

    The 2019 Ford Flex isn't an award winner, the most stylish, or loaded with technology features. However, year-after-year, this SUV shows up to Ford dealerships and offers value to many consumers looking for a roomy daily driver. The SEL is the best bang for your buck and can be enhanced with the 202A Equipment Group for a decent price.
