The Flex faithful will find much to like in the 2013 model, while fence-sitters might find themselves finally converted. The updated styling offers a front-end treatment more avant garde than that of the previous car.

The Flex is for the person who’s growing family necessitates something larger than a sports sedan, but isn’t willing to give up driving fun. If you are the sort of person that needs a car to put a smile on your face, tow a boat, and haul the family about, then Ford has got something for you.

After a week with this new model, we’re convinced that Ford has delivered a crossover with more Flex than ever. We still enjoy the Flex for its unique looks and plush ride.

A reasonably versatile alternative to the traditional minivan or crossover, the Flex not only fits smartly on the soccer field or when pulling a 4,500 lb trailer, but it even looks the part if your night out includes a trip to the opera.

The 2013 Ford Flex Limited EcoBoost carries what looks like a high price tag, but when you think about what it brings to the table, $45,000-plus seems almost reasonable. Technology, performance, style, three rows of adult-friendly seating―this thing’s got it all.

The Ford Flex is the only game in town, if you want a smooth, fast, comfortable, safe, and roomy full-size utility vehicle that seats seven and isn’t a crossover or SUV.

The boxy 2013 Ford Flex SEL AWD is not for everyone, but it’s worth a look if you’re in the market for a big vehicle with big space and plenty of available cabin tech.

The Ford Flex Titanium has the style, amenities and performance to go toe-to-toe with models from more upscale brands. It’s even luxurious enough to make people considering its costlier cousin – the Lincoln MKT – think twice about their purchase.
