Flex: Seating and Cargo

The 2017 Ford Flex is incredibly versatile inside, just as you would expect from a vehicle like this. There are plenty of ways to configure it, and you can seat up to seven passengers thanks to the three rows of seating. The Flex is also the only model in its class to offer a power-folding third-row seat that lets you fold it completely flat by pressing a button. Go between an upright position and a flat cargo area in seconds without any effort. Even without the power version of the third row, the Flex is ready for anything. Folding down the third row gives you 43.2 cubic feet. Fold down the second-row seats, as well, to enjoy 83.2 cubes. Don’t forget that there is an available second-row center console and plenty of storage and map pockets, along with 10 bottle and cup holders.

2017 Ford Flex: Safety

The 2017 Flex does well at keeping your family safe, as well. After all, a rearview camera comes standard, and you can view it on the available 8-inch touchscreen while the gridlines guide you to your spot. Those who want some extra traction will appreciate the available Intelligent AWD that continuously monitors the throttle position, steering angle, and wheel speed and adjusts torque as necessary. Meanwhile, the standard AdvanceTrac with Roll Stability Control prevents slides and accidents. Factor in available advanced safety features, like Active Park Assist, BLIS, Cross-Traffic Alert, and Forward Collision Warning as part of Adaptive Cruise Control, and you are set.
