2009 Ford Flex revealed...

  1. Ford today revealed the 2009 Ford Flex — a full size crossover designed to replace the automaker's minivan offerings. On sale in the summer of 2008, the Flex will join the Edge and Taurus X in Ford’s expanding crossover lineup.


    “The new Ford Flex crossover is a game-changer. It’s the first vehicle of its kind that combines seating for seven, interior spaciousness and surprising features with a striking design that looks great on the road and at home for today’s modern American families,” said Mark Fields, Ford’s president of The Americas, as he revealed the new vehicle at the 2007 New York International Auto Show. “The Flex builds on Ford’s leadership in crossover vehicles, which is the fastest-growing part of the auto market today.”

    Flex is powered by Ford’s 3.5-liter V-6 engine and is mated to a fuel-efficient 6-speed transmission. The powertrain is expected to deliver more than 260 horsepower, 245 lb.-ft. of torque and good fuel economy.

    Unique features including a refrigerator, mounted between the second-row captain’s chairs, Multi-Panel Vista Roof, seven-color programmable ambient lighting, capless fuel filler system, FordSync communications and entertainment system, Ford’s next-generation navigation system, and Ford’s second-generation door-entry keypad.
