Introduction

Introduced for the 2009 model year and facelifted for 2013, Ford’s sizable, defiantly squared-off crossover continues to stand apart from the crowd. The futuristic, space-age design isn’t quite as distinctive as it used to be, but the Ford Flex remains a practical, family-friendly utility vehicle.

The 2018 Ford Flex is a carryover, with little change evident from 2017.

2018 Flex SE, SEL, and Limited trim levels offer a choice of two V6 engines:

Standard is the long-lived 3.5-liter V6, rated at 287 horsepower and 254 pound-feet of torque and paired with Ford’s familiar 6-speed automatic transmission. With front-wheel drive, the base engine serves well enough. Because the Flex is no lightweight, optional all-wheel drive extracts quite a bit of its performance potential.

Optional is an Ecoboost twin-turbo 3.5-liter V6 that develops 365 horsepower and 350 pound-feet, also working with a 6-speed automatic. All-wheel drive is standard on a Limited with the optional EcoBoost engine, adding $8,200 to the retail price of a regular front-wheel-drive Limited with the standard engine.

Three-row seating is standard, providing seven-passenger capacity. At 117.9 inches, the Flex wheelbase is almost 7 inches longer than that of a Honda Pilot.

Ford offers some valuable active-safety technology for the Flex, but most features are optional, and only for the most costly trim levels. The Limited model, for instance, comes with blind-spot monitoring. Adding forward collision warning with automatic emergency braking, coupled with adaptive cruise control and a power-folding third-row seat, means paying $2,900 additional.

The Insurance Institute for Highway Safety gave Flex Good scores for most crash-tests, with an Acceptable rating in the challenging small-overlap frontal-impact test.

All Flex crossovers have a rearview camera. Also standard is a system that can apply front braking to the outside wheel, intended to provide a more secure feeling when zipping through corners.

Ford’s optional MyKey system lets parents set limits on a youngster’s driving habits. MyKey can restrict vehicle speed, stereo volume, and various entertainment features. Additional Flex options include a panoramic sunroof, second-row captain’s chairs, a power-folding third-row seat, a heated steering wheel, and a towing package.

Lineup

Flex SE ($30,300) has a 3.5-liter V6, 6-speed automatic, front-drive, three rows of seats, a second-row bench, Bluetooth-enabled and voice-controlled SYNC infotainment, 17-inch wheels, CD player, cloth seats, heated power mirrors, rear parking sensors, and a rearview camera. All-wheel drive is not available on the base model. (Prices do not include $895 destination charge.)

Flex SEL ($33,000) adds an 8.0-inch touchscreen, SYNC 3 infotainment, remote start, keyless ignition, heated power front seats, 18-inch wheels, woodgrain trim, and dual-zone automatic climate control. All-wheel drive adds $1,950.

Flex Limited ($38,510) gets 12-speaker Sony audio, perforated leather seat trim, power front seats with driver’s memory, navigation, power liftgate, 19-inch wheels, and blind-spot monitoring with rear cross-traffic alert. All-wheel drive adds $1,950.

Only the Limited is available with the optional twin-turbo, 365-horsepower EcoBoost V6 engine. Priced at $8,200 including all-wheel drive, the EcoBoost version has an MSRP of $45,105.

A $1,495 Limited appearance package adds Shadow Black exterior details, deluxe leather-trimmed seats, and 20-inch wheels.

Walkaround

Not many vehicles brandish a body that’s so idiosyncratic. In stark contrast to the battling curves that have served as the main trend for recent crossovers, the Flex relies almost solely on angles and dead-straight lines. The boxy profile is highlighted by a pattern of grooved ribs reaching down its flat bodysides. Roofs can be black or body-colored, and the front end has been likened to a computer’s USB port.

Hints of several other makes, from Mini Cooper to Range Rover, might be discerned when viewing a Flex. Still, taken in total, this Ford is in a league all its own.

Interior

More sedate than charming in its current form, the Flex cabin benefits from a simple and effective control layout, centering on a large touchscreen. Touch-sensitive controls, arranged in a stack, work efficiently. In base models, the standard infotainment screen measures only 4.3 inches.

Quiet operation adds to the premium feel of the Flex. Upper trim levels get leather seating surface in the front and second rows, along with a power liftgate.

Comfort and usable space score highly, thanks to the boxy profile. Headroom is especially appealing. Adults can expect excellent seat comfort in front and second rows, whether the latter has captain’s chairs or the standard fold-down bench. Amply-padded second-row seats can accommodate occupants who are quite tall.

Easing into the front seats is no problem, facing abundant knee and shoulder room. Side bolsters are soft, but effective.

Third-row seats are usable, too. For short treks, at least, even those tall riders can manage. For enhanced storage, the split rear seat folds in two matching sections. Cargo volume totals 20 cubic feet behind the third row, growing to 83 cubic feet if both the second- and third-row seatbacks are folded down.

Driving Impressions

Comfort heads the list of Flex benefits. Specifically, ride comfort. Overall, the suspension is effectively compliant, though a fast-moving Flex can bound a bit in tight corners. Even the available 20-inch wheels don’t mar its smooth ride quality.

Standing tall and riding high, the Flex comports itself well. Considering that a heavyweight Flex tips the scales at around 4,600 pounds, handling is significantly better than expected.

Steering feels crisp, with even effort throughout its range. Brakes have plenty of stopping power.

Acceleration is adequate with the standard 287-horsepower V6, helped by a fuss-free automatic transmission. Still, a bit more energy would be welcome. That’s the job of the more exuberant twin-turbo V6, optional on the Limited, which provides some lusty sounds as well lively response to the gas pedal. Paddle shifters are included with the EcoBoost engine.

In either configuration, Flex borders on fun to drive. Both engines do a credible job of handling the Flex’s heft.

Gas mileage is well below average, trailing several three-row rivals. Base models with front-wheel drive and a V6 are EPA-rated at 16/23 mpg City/Highway, or 19 mpg Combined. With all-wheel drive, the estimate dips to 16/22/18 mpg. The twin-turbo V6 version is EPA-rated at 15/21 mpg City/Highway, or 17 mpg Combined.

Summary

Despite its age, the Flex remains a solid competitor in the large family-vehicle category, helped by an impressive standard-feature list. While substituting for a minivan in utility, a Flex is priced more like a classy Lincoln. That’s almost logical, since the family-oriented Flex boasts a fair number of luxury-car touches. Advanced safety features are costly, too, offered mainly for Limited trim.

About These Prices

As you know, pricing cars is particularly complicated. One of our duties at CarQuotes.com is to help our customers comprehend this process better.

Three important prices we may show on a particular vehicle

CarQuotes.com Estimated Target Price is for research purposes only. It reflects a typical, negotiated price (before taxes and other customary fees and charges, such as dealer documentation fees, tire and battery disposal fees, license and registration, and where applicable, finance charges) generally found for the vehicle that you selected. The Estimated Target Price is NOT a price quote from CarQuotes.com or any other dealer. If you request a price quote from a dealer via CarQuotes.com displaying an estimated target price, your price may differ.

Invoice is commonly known as the published amount that the dealer paid the manufacturer for the vehicle. This may or may not represent a close relation to the dealer’s actual cost, but can be beneficial as a benchmark. This figure is available on many other web sites however CarQuotes.com adds an estimate of local and regional fees from manufacturer to the dealers to this price, which makes it very close to the actual invoice amount for cars at your local dealer.

MSRP is the Manufacturer’s Suggested Retail Price. This is a proposed price only. For most vehicles, the CarQuotes.com price is below this amount. Some high demand cars may be priced over this amount.

Estimated Target Price

The CarQuotes.com Target Price is to be used as a general guide that reflects a typical, market price (before taxes and other customary fees and charges) generally found for the vehicle that you selected. This price is based on our research and estimates of supply and demand in the marketplace. There are many factors that go into the final price of a particular vehicle including local supply and demand. Your final price may differ.

CarQuotes.com Estimated Target Prices include

The ’base’ price of the vehicle
All options that you select
Base Destination Charges — this is a charge that is added to the base price for every vehicle
Any related Estimated Manufacture to Consumer Cash Rebates. Note: rebates are subject to change at any time. Please make sure to confirm any consumer Cash rebates with your dealer representative at the time of purchase.

CarQuotes.com Estimated price(s) do NOT include any of the following:

Local taxes, license fees and other local fees, such as dealer documentation fees, tire and battery disposal fees, and where applicable, finance charges — these fees are also excluded from Dealer Invoice and MSRP and would be excluded from most advertisements you might see.
Random ’special qualification’ rebates — i.e., for new college grads only; for customers trading in a specific type of car.  Ask your dealer Representative for more information on ’special qualification’ rebates.

CarQuotes Estimated Dealer Price

The Estimated CarQuotes Dealer Price is an estimate of the pricing presented to CarQuotes members from CarQuotes Authorized Dealers in your area, and is calculated by subtracting an estimated savings value from the Manufacturer’s Suggested Retail Price ("MSRP") as well as a value that relates to invoice for the "ideal vehicle" you configured. Dealer documentation, administrative or similar processing fees are not included in the price estimate. Any vehicle configured on the CarQuotes website is an "ideal vehicle" and may not exist at a CarQuotes Authorized Dealer or any other partner dealer. Each Dealer attempts to match a member’s vehicle preferences with the best possible selection from current, in-stock inventory.

Estimated Savings

The Estimated Savings represents the estimated amount of savings off of MSRP available to you from CarQuotes Dealers for a vehicle consistent with your configured preferences plus any customer incentives currently available.  This is also true when it comes to CarQuotes estimated target prices. Your actual savings will depend on several factors including market conditions, the style of vehicle you select, installed options, dealer coverage, and applicable manufacturer incentives. Each dealer sets its own pricing.

Advertised Rebates, Special Manufacturer Financing or Leasing Programs

In most cases, you must choose between these programs OR a customer rebate or a special manufacturer-to-dealer incentive that may or may not already be included in your CarQuotes.com Target Price. So, your final price may go up if you take advantage of special manufacturer financing. Credit Union members should contact their Credit Union loan department to determine what type of loan and financing options are right for you.

Please note that CarQuotes.com strives to include identified manufacturer incentives within the CarQuotes.com Target Price. CarQuotes.com does not administer these programs, which are subject to and often change without notice. Eligibility for these programs is subject to verification by a licensed auto dealer.

Ask your dealer representative for complete manufacturer program details for your area, and how participation in these programs will affect your price.

Base Vehicle

The base vehicle is the vehicle before any optional equipment or destination fees have been added. All of the standard features are included in the base vehicle.

Options

This is the total charge for all optional equipment included in the configuration of your virtual vehicle. The Options charge varies depending on whether it is calculated based on the Factory Invoice or MSRP. Options are not included in the base vehicle price and are not considered standard features.

Regional Fees

A Regional Fee is the fee a manufacturer charges a dealer to advertise and promote the vehicle in the dealer’s market. CarQuotes also includes estimated manufacturer preparation charges (manufacturer charges to the dealer to cover any work done on the car prior to delivering it to the dealership) and fuel charges (the charge for the fuel in the tank when the buyer purchases the vehicle) in this total. CarQuotes attempts to include regional ad fees in its Factory Invoice calculations; other sites at times do not.

Destination Fees

These are the amounts that manufacturers charge to deliver a vehicle from the factory to the dealership.

Customer Incentives

Customer incentives are also commonly known as customer cash or bonus incentives. These incentives are offered by manufacturers as a way of enticing buyers into purchasing a vehicle.

 

Note: Dealer Invoice amount might not be the amount that the dealer paid to the manufacturer

Dealer Invoice price may or may not bear close relation to a dealer’s actual cost for the vehicle. In some cases, a cost for a vehicle may be significantly less than the invoice price originally paid for the vehicle. Any difference between invoice price and the dealer’s final cost may be caused by many factors including factory refunds, rebates, allowances, or incentives which the manufacturer or distributor may provide to the dealer.
