We’re Getting a 2015 Ford Flex, What Do You Want to Know?

By -

Ford Flex 3

Ford currently has a lot of different types of vehicles on sale. Everything from the spunky little Fiesta up to the F-450 Super Duty. They have cars, SUVs, vans, and trucks. I’ve driven them all. Every modern Ford currently on sale at the date of this publication I’ve driven, EXCEPT for the Ford Flex. That’s about to change.

The Flex is often regarded by one of the best vehicles on sale that nobody is buying. It’s a three-row utility that is more wagon than sport-utility. I’ve seen it described as the Taurus Wagon. It’s an Explorer for people who don’t want to go off-road.

The one we’re receiving for review is a fully-optioned that’s only missing a couple of possible configurations. Ours has a full bench second row and not the captain’s chairs. As a result, Ford did not build this one with the awesome beer cooler installed (there is an option for a compressor-driven fridge and freezer in the center console of the second row).

The MSRP is $49,450, including the destination, and will be arriving in Guard with a white roof. Ours will have the 3.5L EcoBoost found in the Explorer and F-150, and mated to an all-wheel drive system.

While sales are slow on the Flex, we’re assured by Ford that it’s not going anywhere and is profitable for the company. The Flex owners I know all seem to love them, and tend to be repeat buyers. Finally, I’ll get to learn what all the fuss is.

But what do you want to know? Have you considered the Flex in the past and were curious about something? Please let us know in the comments or over in the forums and we’ll answer some of your questions in a future post.
