Used 2014 Ford Flex
The Used 2014 Ford Flex is top pick in the large crossover segment and a great choice for families or drivers who travel in big groups. It's solid and spacious, offering flexible cabin configurations and high-tech safety features. On the road, the Flex offers superb handling and a smooth ride. Drivers can choose from a variety of engines, including a strong turbocharged V6. The Flex has its own style: the exterior is at once modern and remnant of a vintage wagon.
The Used 2014 Ford Flex offers plenty of space for up to seven passengers. It's practically as spacious as a minivan, while offering all the style that comes with a crossover. With its low stance, passengers have easy access to second- and third-row seating. Unlike many other crossovers, tall passengers can sit comfortably in any seat, even in the third row. Drivers can choose to add second-row captains chairs, which reduce the maximum seating to six but offer impressive comfort and legroom, thanks to their sliding feature. There's a maximum of 83 cubic feet of cargo space behind the first row.
In addition to space, passengers can enjoy an impressively upscale cabin. The base Flex SE model comes with a long list of features, including Ford's base version of its Sync technology, which gives drivers access to phone and audio voice controls. Midlevel SEL drivers get enhanced Sync features, including turn-by-turn navigation to help drivers explore unknown territory. Heated front seats keep passengers cozy in winter weather.
This family-friendly vehicle also offers plenty of standard safety equipment. Ford's Sync technology includes emergency crash notification, which contacts emergency services should a collision occur. The MyKey system allows parents to set speed limitations for new teenage drivers. The Flex SEL and Limited can be equipped with a rearview camera and blind-spot warning system to help drivers stay safe. The Insurance Institute for Highway Safety gave the Flex its top rating of "Good" in a variety of crash tests.
The Used 2014 Ford Flex is both great for driving around town and hauling heavy toys. A standard 3.5-liter V6 engine generates 287 horsepower and 254 pound-feet of torque. SEL and Limited drivers can choose to add all-wheel drive. With front-wheel drive, the standard Flex engine achieves 18 city/25 highway mpg. With all-wheel drive, it gets 17/23 mpg.
Flex Limited drivers can choose a turbocharged 3.5-liter V6 EcoBoost engine that makes 365 horsepower and 350 pound-feet of torque. It achieves 16/23 mpg. Properly equipped, either engine can tow up to 4,500 pounds.
This top-of-the-line Used 2014 Flex model is the only one that offers the turbocharged V6. The luxurious Limited is equipped with all of the SEL's convenience features, plus high-tech, timesaving items like keyless ignition and entry. Xenon headlights improve nighttime visibility and exterior style. A navigation system helps drivers get where they need to go.
The Used 2014 Flex supplies drivers with a spacious, well-appointed crossover. It's got enough flexibility and power to take on day-to-day tasks and haul heavy loads. The Flex offers enough room to transport a big family and their weekend luggage. Engine options are both powerful and fuel-efficient.
