Contrary to rumors or predictions, the 2019 Ford Flex is still around. This large wagon is undeniably aging, having been carrying on without a full redesign since its debut for the 2009 model year. Yet, we're just fine with that. We like the distinctive exterior styling and its interior that is spacious, flexible, and easy to configure for passengers and cargo.
Power continues to come from one of two engines. The standard 3.5-liter V6 produces 287 horsepower and 254 pound-feet of torque and is competitive within the traditional three-row SUV segment. And if you want more power, the Flex's optional turbocharged 3.5L V6 Ecoboost engine produces a stout 365 hp and 350 lb-ft of torque.
The Flex's interior seats seven, or you can load lots of cargo by folding down seatbacks as you need them. With its turbocharged engine, the Flex also has a stout tow rating of 4,500 pounds. And thanks to its reasonable ride height and large windows all around, all passengers get great views of the outside.
The latest in advanced driver safety aids are available, but only on the highest trim level.
For some buyers, namely those who prioritize function over form, the Flex still presents a worthy investment.
The 2019 Ford Flex is a large SUV-like wagon that can seat either six or seven passengers and is available in SE, SEL and Limited trim levels. The standard engine is a 3.5-liter V6 (287 horsepower, 254 pound-feet of torque) that is paired with a six-speed automatic transmission that sends power to the front wheels. All-wheel drive is available for the SEL and Limited trims. The Limited trim is also eligible for a turbocharged 3.5-liter V6 (365 hp and 350 lb-ft) with standard all-wheel drive. Standard feature highlights for the SE trim include 17-inch wheels, rear parking sensors, heated side mirrors, rear privacy glass, a keyless-entry keypad, an auto-dimming rearview mirror, a leather-wrapped steering wheel, a six-way power driver's seat (with manual recline), 60/40-split folding second-row seats with an auto-folding passenger side, 50/50-split folding third-row seats, a rearview camera, Bluetooth, a 4.2-inch central display screen, voice controls, and a six-speaker audio system with a CD player and a USB port.
The SEL adds 18-inch wheels, upgraded brakes, foglights, keyless entry and ignition, remote start, dual-zone automatic climate control with manual rear controls, wood-appearance interior trim, heated front seats, power-adjustable front seats, and the Sync 3 infotainment system with an 8-inch touchscreen, satellite radio, a USB port and smartphone integration via Apple CarPlay and Android Auto.
The SEL trim is eligible for the 202A option package, which adds a power liftgate, blind-spot monitoring with rear cross-traffic alert, power-adjustable pedals, driver-seat memory settings, leather upholstery (vinyl for the third row), a 110-volt household power outlet and an upgraded seven-speaker audio system.
The range-topping Limited trim includes all of the above plus 19-inch wheels, xenon headlights, LED taillights, power-folding mirrors, automatic wipers, additional metallic exterior trim, upgraded wood interior trim, ambient interior lighting, a navigation system (optional on the SEL), and a 12-speaker Sony premium audio system with HD radio. The Limited trim is eligible for the 301A package that adds an automatic parallel parking system, adaptive cruise control, forward collision warning, a heated and power-adjustable steering wheel, ventilated front seats and power-folding third-row seats.
Additional options are dependent on trim and include 20-inch wheels, roof rails, a tow package, a panoramic sunroof, black exterior and interior trim, upgraded leather upholstery and inflatable second-row outboard seat belts.
Thanks to its optional 365-hp turbocharged V6 and all-wheel drive, the Flex has plenty of power and traction. When it comes to acceleration, the Flex is a solid performer, especially with the available EcoBoost V6. With that engine, the Flex hits 60 mph in 6.2 seconds, which is quicker than just about any other crossover or minivan.
The brakes are very effective. In an emergency braking test, the Flex stopped from 60 mph in a respectable 120 feet.
The Flex drives smaller than it looks because it doesn't lean as much as taller SUVs when you're going around turns. But it never feels nimble due to its long length, high weight, low-grip tires and occasional intrusive stability control system. If space for stuff and easy access are your primary requirements, the Flex remains a great choice. There's plenty of room for rear passengers, too. The doors open wide, and there's no sill to step over. The seats are neither too high nor too low. Second-row access is equally easy, and getting to the third row isn't bad. There is plenty of head- and legroom. Farther back, the second row feels positively expansive, and third-row passengers will be fine for a bit.
Forward visibility is excellent, with a good sense of where the long hood ends. Rear visibility is enhanced with a camera, but even without it, we'd feel comfortable backing this one up. The large side mirrors provide good coverage.
If you can't fit all of your stuff into a Ford Flex, there's a good chance you have too much stuff. The Flex's boxy shape and flat load floor are great in real-world use.
If there's one area in which the aging Ford Flex has remained up-to-date, it's the infotainment system. The Sync 3 system is significantly better than previous versions.
