2012 Ford Flex Sport Utility Crossover
Benefits of Driving a 2012 Ford Flex Sport Utility Crossover
The Ford Flex has a lot going for it in the market. For one, it looks like no other; especially on the outside, its chiseled, boxy design is part tall, boxy wagon, part lowered SUV. But practically, the Flex's forte is interior space. There's enough space to make six adults happy for a jaunt across town; and with the two rear rows of seats folded forward, there's enough cargo space to rival that available in minivans. Features and options are impressive, too; inside, the Flex can be equipped better than just about any other utility vehicle from a mainstream brand While performance from the base engine is adequate, many shoppers will find the EcoBoost engine to be worth the price premium, as it makes the Flex feel more lively, but not at the expense of fuel economy or comfort.
What's new for 2012?
After the Ford Flex got extensive updates and improvements for 2011, including new HD Radio capability, PowerFold/tumble third-row seats, and a new Titanium series, very little has changed about the Ford Flex. The rear wiper has been repositioned, more cupholders have been added for second-row occupants and a few option packages have been reconfigured. A new golden hue, Ginger Ale Metallic and Cinnamon are part of a revamped color palette.
