Five-Point Inspection: 2013 Ford Flex Limited AWD

2: Loaded with useful tech

This Flex isn’t just performance oriented, it’s also surprisingly well equipped, with great technology everywhere you look. A car this big benefits greatly from aids like blind-spot assist and rear-view camera for moving the car around town.

When you get on the highway, the Flex manages quite well thanks to its adaptive cruise-control that accelerates and decelerates based on the car in front of you. Sadly, it won’t stop for you, but it does emit a loud beep reminding you to take control of the vehicle. If you don’t, there’s also an obnoxious collision alert system that ensures you’ll panic.

    “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.
