And How to Test Drive This SUV at Your Local Itasca Ford Dealership

Although the 2019 Ford Flex is the last in this particular lineup of full-size SUVs, this vehicle still has plenty to offer drivers who are looking to get a reliable Ford without a huge sticker price.

The Flex is one of those SUVs that you know it when you see it. While other SUVs can kind of blend together when it comes to body, build, and design, the Flex takes a different route, winning over those non-traditional drivers with its unique boxy build and outside-the-box design elements.

What will be forever endearing about the Flex is that it’s a vehicle that took chances, finally delivering a non-conventional experience in a world where SUVs can easily fall victim to being unimaginative and predictable.

Keeping that in mind, here is our top five list of reasons you should check out the 2019 Ford Flex, available for test driving right now at your local Itasca Ford dealership.

#1 – It’s Affordable

When shopping for a used car, price is always a top-of-mind issue with buyers. As one of the best used car dealerships in Texas, we’re big believers that it shouldn’t cost an arm and a leg to get a high-quality vehicle.

Fortunately, the 2019 Ford Flex has racked up some favorable coverage in this regard. The U.S. News & World Report ranked the Ford Flex sixth on their list of Best 2019 Affordable Midsize SUVs. The 2019 Ford Flex here at the Itasca Ford Dealership has an MSRP of approximately $31,000. That works out to be approximately $564 per month with financing, depending on your down payment or trade-in value.

#2 – It’s Incredibly Spacious

One of the big things that reviewers praised the 2019 Ford Flex for was its spacious cabin, able to seat large groups of people. The Flex comfortably seats seven in three rows, which makes it the perfect SUV for even the largest family.

The Flex also provides drivers with 83.2 cubic feet of storage (with rear seats folded down), which means it can take on any size grocery trip or camping excursion.

#3 – It’s Super Reliable

When buyers get a used car, they want to be sure that it’s going to stand the test of time. There’s nothing worse than buying a vehicle and then having a bunch of mechanical problems over the life of ownership.

Being built Ford tough means that drivers shouldn’t have to worry about that, and the Flex totally comes through in that regard. It scored top marks with J.D. Power in the quality and reliability category.

However, should you need routine maintenance, service, or repairs, you can always count on the Ford Service Center to take good care of you and your vehicle.

#4 – It’s Packed with Features

One of the big perks of getting a late-model SUV is the wide variety of safety and infotainment features that it has. Although the Ford Flex is a few years old, drivers can expect a phenomenal feature package that keeps their family safe and entertained on long drives.

Some of the top safety features include:

  • Anti-lock brakes
  • Stability control
  • Front, side, and overhead impact airbags
  • Pretensioners

#5 – It’s Got Plenty of Power Under the Hood

Drivers wouldn’t be getting a true Ford SUV experience unless they had plenty of power available to them while driving. Yet again, the Ford Flex comes through in the clutch.

The 2019 model provides drivers with up to 350 lb-ft. of torque and up to 365 horsepower. Additionally, the Ford Flex can get up to 60 mph in as little as 6.1 seconds. And if you have a small trailer you need to haul, the Flex has a towing capacity of 2,000 lbs.
