Five-Point Inspection: 2013 Ford Flex Limited AWD

Five-Point Inspection: 2013 Ford Flex Limited AWD

1: Performance hides its size

Make no mistake. The Flex is a big and heavy vehicle, but everything comes together to make the car feel much smaller than it is. The 365-hp twin-turbo V6 launches the Flex in a way that’s absolutely surreal for a car of its size.

Coming to a stop occurs in an equally fast fashion. Overall though, the Flex acts in a way that’s entirely unlike its appearance suggests. It’s faster, more manoeuvrable, and surprising in almost every single way. This beast should be called the “Mustang minivan”.

    “Mustang Minivan” That sounds stupid.

  • Yes I would have to agree mustang minivan is a sad excuse for a name 

  • Your estimate on highway road trip fuel range is way off. I’ve got one of these and during a 1000km road trip it was forced to stop once for gas. Full tank before we left and another full tank at the half way point. According to the (very accurate) dash display we still had 100km worth of fuel left when we got home.
