Daily Driver: 2015 Ford Flex

The Ford Flex has been around. It’s not T-Rex or even Model T old, but still; it’s been hauling people and stuff since 2008 without a major redesign. That’s quite a long time in the car world. WATCH THE VIDEO HERE.

Sales have been sliding the last couple of years, and the Ford Flex is now considered a niche player in the crossover-centric US auto market. But that doesn’t mean it’s still not a pretty good vehicle for its purpose: If you need to haul people and stuff, there are few better choices. Some even think it’s a guilty pleasure.

I spent a winter afternoon tooling around suburban Detroit in a handsomely equipped Flex Limited. We’re talking the 3.5-liter EcoBoosted V6 with 365 horsepower and all-wheel drive. Inside, there were big comfy seats, lots of leather, acres of storage space and even a built-in refrigerator. The drive ended up being surprisingly fun. If there’s such a thing as a hot-rod minivan, this is it. I also got noticed. The Flex’s boxy design has aged well. It’s still polarizing, but there aren’t many contemporary vehicles that look like a Flex.

So if you’ve ever seen a Flex on the road, and thought: “Man, that thing is big. I wonder what it’s like to drive that?” Now’s your chance to find out.
