Benefits of Driving a 2013 Ford Flex Sport Utility Crossover

Despite the Flex's bold look, it is first and foremost a people carrier. Great pains were taken with the interior to maximize its usability and make it comfortable for up to seven people. However the Flex stands out by being a crossover vehicle, rather than just a pure minivan. With more truck-like styling than its competitors and not a hubcap in sight, the Flex carries people in style.

What's new for 2013?

Ford has given the Flex a major update for 2013. The Ford gets a new look front end, new interior and redesigned mechanicals. Plenty of new technology makes its way into the Flex with features such as Ford's Blind Spot Information System and adaptive cruise control. The Flex remains true to its mission as a stylish 7-passenger crossover with available all-wheel drive.

Model Review

Exterior changes on the 2013 Flex are mostly concentrated on the nose of the vehicle. Overall, the new Front fascia is slightly more rounded to fit in better with the rest of the vehicle. The large oval 'Ford' badge has been removed and replaced with slick lettering spelling out F-L-E-X. The three chrome bars in the Flex's grill have been removed in favor of a less busy grill featuring only one bar. New headlights round out the changes at the front end. At the back the most noticeable change are the dual exhaust pipes poking out from the rear end.

Safety Ratings help

What do the Safety Ratings mean?

The National Highway Traffic Safety Administration (NHTSA) performs independent crash testing of new vehicles and then assigns them a score based on their performance. The overall crash test rating is based on how a vehicle performs in the following tests:

Driver Crash Grade:

Measures the chance of a serious injury to a crash test dummy that is placed in a driver's seat and driven into a fixed barrier at 35 MPH. A five-star rating means there is 10 percent or less chance of injury.

Passenger Crash Grade:

Similar to the driver crash grade, only now the focus is on the passenger.

Rollover Resistance:

Simulates an emergency lane change to measure the likelihood of a vehicle rolling over. A five-star rating means there is 10 percent or less risk of rollover.

Side Impact Crash Test - Front:

Focuses on the front side of a vehicle. It simulates crashes that can occur in intersections by striking a 3,015-pound weight against the side of a vehicle at 38.5 MPH. A five-star rating means there is 5 percent or less chance of injury.

Side Impact Crash Test - Rear:

Similar to the front side impact test only now the focus is on the rear passenger.
