Ford Flex Crossover (2008-2019)

Neoscore 81%

Product Overview

Ford Flex is a full-size crossover in production from 2008 to 2019. It was available with a range of V6 engines that displaced 3.5 liters.
One of the largest crossovers on the market during its production run, the Ford Flex boasts an amazing, futuristic exterior design. It is unlike any other crossover ever made and combines largest interior space with decent performance.
The downside to this setup is that the Flex has no pretense in "off-roading".
