The End of an Era: A Love Letter to the 2019 Ford Flex
As we’ve learned in October by Ford, the Ford Flex is being discontinued with the 2019 model being its last. Let’s take a look back and see why exactly we fell in love with the latest 2019 Flex.
The 2019 Ford Flex is a modern new spin on the classic station wagon. It’s an SUV-style wagon which is attractive, reliable, and loaded with fun and practical features. If you’re looking for a crossover with room for the whole family (it seats seven comfortably), you’ll love what this make and model has to offer. Once you discover the many advantages of this stylish and supremely drivable sport utility vehicle, you’ll be sold.
Spacious Cargo Hold
Do you need plenty of room for groceries, sports gear, and other everyday stuff? If you do, you’ll love the 2019 Ford Flex, because it’s got the spacious cargo hold that you are looking for. This three-row crossover offers up to 83.2 cubic feet of cargo room, so you’ll be able to store your gear with unprecedented ease.
The rear and second-row seats are easy-folding designs. Fold one or both rows of seats flat to access more cargo space when you need it the most. However, storage space in this vehicle doesn’t stop there. There is a large glove compartment with a lock, storage in third-row armrests, storage pockets in the first and second rows, and ten bottle/cup holders. This vehicle has been designed with the needs of families in mind. It’s even easy to get in and out of, thanks to its low ground clearance.
Three Trims to Choose From
When you go for the Ford Flex, which has a proven track record as a family-friendly, driver-friendly vehicle, and choose the 2019 model, you’ll have choices.
The base trim is the SE, which comes with seven-passenger, cloth-covered seats, a SYNC infotainment system, 17-inch aluminum wheels painted Sparkle Silver, and a reverse sensing system.
The mid-range trim is the SEL, which has the SE’s basic features, plus a SYNC 3 infotainment system, heated first-row seats, an intelligent access system with a push-button start, and 18-inch wheels finished in Sparkle Silver paint.
At the top of the spectrum is the premium Limited trim, which is equipped with basic features, as well as 19-inch, nickel-painted aluminum wheels, a blind spot information system that includes cross-traffic alert, a SYNC 3 infotainment system, and perforated, leather-trimmed seats.
Choose the Ideal Engine
A couple of V-6 engine options are available for the 2019 Ford Flex. Both of these options displace 3.5 liters, and mate to six-speed automatic transmissions. With the base and mid-range trims, 287 horsepower will be at your fingertips and you’ll enjoy front-wheel drive performance. With the Limited trim, there is an optional twin-turbo engine (V-6) that offers 365 horsepower and all-wheel performance. The Limited engine has the power to make it to 60 mph in only 6.2 seconds.
