2017 Ford Flex
Your family is growing and you need more space, but you don't want to be one of those minivan families that you sometimes make fun of. A third row SUV like the Ford Flex is the perfect vehicle for you. It has the seating capacity of a minivan while still keeping the style you love.
The 2017 Ford Flex just looks cool. It's a perfect mixture of old and new style. The Flex is available with the classic contrasting roof color that you might find on your favorite retor station wagon while the body directly around the windows stays black to create a seamless infinity window look. The clean lines from front to back give it a modern architectural feel, creating a unique looking vehicle that's uninterested in blending into the crowd.
The space on the inside is just as impressive as the exterior styling. The Flex seats seven passengers in three rows, giving you plenty of space for everyone. When you have more stuff than people, which is often the case, the second and third row will power fold themselves down with just the push of a button. You can expand your cargo space from 20 to 83.2 cubic feet easily. That's way more than you need for groceries, even if you fill all those seats.
So the passengers are covered--but what about the driver? In the front, you have a touch screen display for the Sync 3 voice activated control center that allows you to make calls, turn on your playlists, and much more without taking your hands off the wheel. The Sirius Traffic and TravelLink let you receive up to date traffic information, weather, gas prices, and even movie times. Vehicle sharers will love the MyKey capability, which allows you to customize settings including max speed or radio volume, to the key you use. This wealth of features makes the Flex a techno-logical choice.
Looks are great, but safety is king. The 2017 Ford Flex offers some impressive safety features. First of all, active park assist will help you get your third row SUV into a parking space without hitting anything. The back up camera will help you get out of it. BLIS blind spot monitoring with cross traffic alert keeps your lane changes confident. Cross traffic alert is also great when backing out of a parking space. It sees what the back up camera can't, giving you those eyes in the back of your head that you've always dreamed about. Finally, adaptive cruise control monitors the traffic around you and adjusts to keep speed with the flow of traffic. With these features and a great safety rating, you have no need to worry.
Take the already unique styling of the Ford Flex and take it up a notch--that's what you'll get with the Limited. Leather trimmed seats with a third row that folds flat, a 12-speaker Sony sound system with Sirius XM, and branded scuff plates to give your Flex a little extra panache. Add to that maple trim and a host of extras that feel luxurious--four 12-volt power ports and a 110-volt outlet, power liftgate, rain sensing wipers, a multipanel vista roof--and you've got a top-of-the-line vehicle that you'll be proud to drive.
If you're looking for a minivan alternative, you've found it in the Flex. You get the seating and cargo space of the van, but with a much cooler look. When you add in the awesome technology and safety, the Flex is the perfect choice.
