Ford Fairlane Concept/Ford Flex
Adore it or abhor it, the Ford Flex is a bold design statement as well as a comfortable people hauler. It’s the Blue Oval’s answer to the minivan, a vehicle segment they’ve never really been able to figure out.
This large crossover is essentially a box on wheels, with a squared-off font end, flat back and familiar three-bar grille. It’s also dressed up with grooves that run down the side of its lengthy body. For better or worse the Flex is a vehicle that’s impossible to ignore.
Before the production version landed at dealers in 2008 the Ford Fairlane Concept showed the world what a vehicle designed with a T-square might look like. This Mays-aided concept car was remarkably similar to the version that went on sale, something that doesn’t happen very often.
