Free Car Owners Manuals - Ford Flex General Information

Free Car Owners Manuals - Ford Flex logoThe Ford Flex is a full-size crossover manufactured through Ford. Its styling is based on the Ford Fairlane concept unveiled at the 2005 North American International Auto Show. The production vehicle made its debut at the 2007 New York International Auto Show. Sales of the Flex began in summer of 2008 as a 2009 model. The Flex is produced on the same assembly line as the Edge and Lincoln MKX crossovers at the Oakville Assembly Plant in Oakville, Ontario, where the first Flex was driven off the line at the beginning of June 2008.

Ford Flex is the ultimate full-sized crossover vehicle for a family’s day out. This car actually does not fit into category and does not seem to be the best at one feature and yet, it manages to charm. It is not the biggest or the best looking, but it has what it takes to fit the bill as a family vehicle. There are more than enough of Crossover vehicles being introduced everyday, so competition can never be eliminated. But the 2009 ford Flex is a fighter, as well as has its own loyal fans. Good performance, fuel economy, more than enough of room and convenience makes this crossover vehicle and ideal family car.

Forget other minivans and low-cost SUVs; this car is a nice thoughtfully created crossover thats tough on the road yet is high on comfort. There are five unique trims in front wheel drive (FWD) and all-wheel drive (AWD), namely SE FWD, SEL FWD, SEL AWD, Limited FWD and Limited AWD. The 3.5 Liter V6 engines offer 262 hp on the road, which is somewhat sufficient for regular commuting as well as the occasional outing. The car seats seven passengers comfortably and can tow about 4,500-lb with ease. As for acceleration, the AWD goes from zero to 60 in 8.8 seconds. 6-speed automatic transmission is standard for all trims. Fuel economy is somewhat respectable.

The 2009 Ford flex is laden with top class features, such as the Multi-Panel Vista Roof, capless fueling, interior refrigerator, SYNC communication interface, large cargo area and plus materials for the interiors. This is one of the best interior designs we’ve seen in ages, as well as the options add to the pleasure. The turning radius could’ve been lighter with a better telescoping steering wheel and he cargo hold is not as large as a few other minivans. But the excellent styling and the decent performance are praise-worthy.

The car looks good and is safe too, with a range of safety features including 4-wheel disk brakes with ABS, tire pressure monitoring system, six airbags, as well as stability control. The Ford Flex scores a full five on five in the NHTSA Frontal Crash Test. You could always go for options such as rear seat DVD, towing package, touchscreen navigation method and much more. But with the already available luxurious features, we doubt you would ever complain. This innovatively styled 2009 crossover from Ford could be yours at an MSRP of $28,295 to $36,555.
