If you are in the market for a mid-size SUV that can comfortably seat seven adults, has a bunch of cargo space, and when properly equipped can tow up to a ton, then you need to see Elk Grove Ford’s inventory of the 2019 Ford Flex. Its distinct, straightforward design is easy on the eyes and brings together the best elements of an SUV, crossover and sedan. It comes loaded with some of the best tech features Ford has to offer. You need to give this ride serious consideration if you like the idea of an SUV but also enjoy the handling and ride of a sedan.
The 2019 Flex has a raised driving position that makes SUVs so popular. At the same time, the handling and responsive steering is reminiscent of a sedan making this an easy ride for anyone to drive. Toss in the confidence of an optional AWD drivetrain and a muscular powerplant and you many of the benefits of a crossover while retaining the ease of handling of a sedan.
A Sacramento People Mover You have to Drive
Access and space are two important elements of any SUV. With the seats up there are a number of cargo options making the Flex, well, flexible. There’s easily space for five sets of golf clubs or about 15 bags of groceries. Lower the second and third rows and you have over 83 cu. ft. so you have plenty of room to make serious purchases at auctions or garage sales. If you have a favorite toy on a trailer, ATVs, dirt bikes, or light camping trailers, your Ford Flex can tow up to 2,000 pounds.
Inside, and there is a lot of inside in this ride, you’ll find a comfortable, functional design. Your adult passengers, including the two in the third row, are going to be comfortable. Kids will think they’ve entered an indoor playground. The interior becomes seemingly bigger than it is because of the great visibility. Higher seating positions and large windows (including an optional panoramic sun roof) give the Flex an airy, spacious feeling.
The 2019 Flex comes standard with a 3.5L V6 that offers 287 hp mated to a six-speed automatic transmission. That’s plenty of power to navigate the interstate or Sacramento streets. But if you like a bit more oomph when you depress the pedal, the optional EcoBoost twin-turbo 3.5L V6 punches out 365 horses giving you way more power than you’ll probably use.
Driving dynamics are impressive. The Flex comes standard as a FWD drivetrain although AWD is available on upper trims, and gives the driver a planted feel on the interstate or taking curves and tight turns in an urban environment. And it does it without feeling like a big truck. It’s an incredibly smooth ride given its size.
A Transportation Solution for Big Families
The Flex offers the room to haul a crowd and their gear. It has the power to take that crowd cross country. The ride will not beat you up on long trips like some vehicles in its size class. It has an exceptionally competitive price.
