Why the Ford Flex is a Cross Between a Minivan & SUV

637 × 477

The term "crossover" has become popular in the auto industry to describe vehicles that mix the qualities of a car with an SUV. They are small and maneuverable like a car, but taller and with more cargo utility like an SUV.

The Ford Flex is a different type of "crossover." It combines the family-friendly amenities and spaciousness of a minivan with the powerful engine and available all-wheel drive of an SUV.

KBB.com's 2018 Ford Flex Expert Review praises the model's surprising maneuverability and driving spirit. Its boxy exterior belies its cornering ability and powerful 365-horsepower EcoBoost engine. The larger of its two engine options, the 3.5-liter EcoBoost V6 comes with all-wheel drive standard—perfect for all-weather performance.

The Flex's boxy shape allows for spacious interiors with seating for up to seven. You'll be able to keep your second-row passengers safer than ever with available inflatable safety belts. The Ford Flex is the first production vehicle to offer this new technology, which particularly benefits younger occupants by helping control head and neck movement in a crash.
