2019 Ford Flex

The 2019 Ford Flex features a unique, wagon-style design that makes this three-row SUV spacious, flexible, and road-trip-ready. In this preview guide, we'll tell you what's new with a brand new model year for the Ford Flex.

Why Buy the 2019 Ford Flex?

Get the Ford Flex to transport your big family in style and comfort. Thanks to its unique shape, the Flex offers three spacious rows of seating. Depending on whether your model has the second-row captain's chairs, the Flex offers space for six or seven passengers. The Flex's high ceiling and folding rear seats give you a lot of versatility. You can create enough cargo space to haul sizeable sports gear without sacrificing an entire row of seating.

This modern, SUV-like family wagon is also big on performance. The Flex offers two engine options, both of which supply enough pep for seamless highway merges. Spend a little more on the turbocharged V6, and you can maximize performance with standard all-wheel drive and the Flex's best tow rating.

Which Ford Flex Trim Model Is Best?

The 2019 Ford Flex is available as three variations: the entry-level SE, the mid-grade SEL, and top-trim Limited. The model that's best for you is the one that meets your desire for comfort, convenience, and tech features without going over your budget.

In the Flex SE, you'll find three rows of family-friendly passenger space and comfort. Little luxuries, like a leather-wrapped steering wheel, give the cabin a stylish vibe. The 60/40-split folding second-row seats and 50/50-split folding third-row seats help you create the cargo space you need for larger items. The SE's rearview camera offers enhanced visibility for help backing out of a tight spot.

The mid-grade SEL is a better pick for tech-savvy drivers. This Flex wagon includes Sync 3, Ford's latest infotainment system. Use its Apple CarPlay and Android Auto features to use smartphone apps like Maps and Music on the Sync 3 touchscreen. The SEL also features some extra conveniences, such as keyless entry and ignition, to help ease you through your busy days. Inside, you'll find handsome faux-wood trim. Even when winter hits hard, the SEL's heated front seats keep you nice and toasty.

Finally, there's the Flex Limited. Outside, the Limited sports xenon headlights and LED taillights, so you can see and be seen after dark. Inside, upgraded wood trim and ambient interior lighting give the Flex an air of exclusivity. This top-trim model offers high-tech safety features that you won't find on the other models. The Flex actively helps you avoid an accident with optional features like forward collision warning. The Limited's optional automated parallel parking system comes in handy if you haven't exactly mastered this maneuver.

How Much Does the 2019 Ford Flex Tow?

Depending on powertrain and equipment, the new Flex can tow max loads of 4,500 pounds. That means you can take your boat along on summer road trips. To move maximum weight, choose the turbocharged 3.5-liter V6 engine.

Does the Ford Flex Offer Four-Wheel Drive or All-Wheel Drive?

The 2019 Ford Flex comes standard with front-wheel drive, but all-wheel drive is optional for the mid-grade SEL and top-trim Limited models. With this performance technology, you can ensure your Flex maintains traction over icy or wet pavement. When you select the Flex Limited with the optional turbocharged V6, all-wheel drive is standard equipment.
