New for 2018
The engineers at Ford know what works, and what works is the design and features of the Ford Flex. Aside from a recent update of Sync3 in the SEL and Limited trims, the new Ford Flex is carried over from 2017.
Space to Spare
The 2018 Ford Flex is an excellent option for anyone needing space for people or cargo. This three-row vehicle provides plenty of space for seven to ride in comfort and style. Plus, there is plenty of configuration options. The third row offers 50/50 split with seats that fold down into the floor. Meanwhile, the second row bench seat offers a 60/40 split bench seat or drivers can select two captain's chairs for the second row. With a maximum cargo area of over 83 cubic feet, few competitors can match that level of space.
Driving the 2018 Ford Flex
The new Ford Flex has two available engines. The standard engine that comes equipped on all trims is a 6-cylinder, 3.5-liter engine that packs an impressive 287 horsepower. This engine is matched to a 6-speed automatic transmission. While front wheel drive comes equipped with this engine, all wheel drive is an available option.
Drivers seeking to have some fun on the road will love the 3.5-liter, 6-cylinder engine with twin turbochargers that is an available option on the Limited trim. This Ecoboost engine provides 365 horsepower, a 6-speed automatic transmission with paddle shifters conveniently mounted into the steering wheel, and equipped all wheel drive. It handles smoothly, accelerates with no problem, and can tow up to 4,500 pounds when it's equipped with the Class Three trailer package.
Features of the Ford Flex
The 2018 Ford Flex offers drivers plenty of versatility with three different trims: base SE, SEL, and the top of the line Limited. Drivers choosing the base SE trim will be pleasantly surprised by the features included. However, anyone seeking the height of comfort and luxury will gravitate toward the Limited trim.
The SE lets you stay connected with Ford's proprietary SYNC system with a 6-speaker stereo system, and Bluetooth capability. There is also a rearview camera, heated side mirrors, and drivers will love the comfort of the 6-way power seat.
The SEL trim builds upon the base model by including dual-zone climate control, heated seats, and remote start. SYNC3, the updated infotainment system that connects Apple CarPlay or Android Auto to a smartphone, is a sought-after standard feature on the SEL trim.
The top of the line Limited trim takes the Flex to the next level with heated leather seats, a power liftgate, and wood interior trim. The audio system gets a great upgrade to a Sony 12-speaker system, and SYNC3 is equipped with navigation.
The new Ford Flex brings fun and excitement to the midsize crossover class. Drivers don't have to compromise having a powerful vehicle with having space for the family. Meanwhile, the family will love having plenty of elbow room and storage space to sit back and enjoy the journey.
How to Calculate The Dealer Cost of a Ford Flex
Formula for Calculating Dealer Cost:
- Example: Base Ford Flex invoice price + the dealer Invoice price of all the options + destination - Holdback = Total Dealer Cost.
- What is Holdback? A hidden amount that manufacturers give back to a dealer. It is a percentage of the MSRP or the Invoice price.
Total Dealer Cost - Rebate and Incentive + Taxes / Licensing Fees = True Dealer Cost. (You can get rebates and incentives here)
Note: All Ford Flex MSRP, invoice and dealer cost dollar figures above are approximate amounts. Prices are subject to change without notice.
A note about rebates: Most rebates are subtracted from the "on the road" figure. In most cases, you can have the rebate if you are arranging your own financing or you are paying cash. If you decide to use the manufacturer’s low interest financing, you do not usually get the rebate. Ask your dealer for details.
