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 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.
