The year 2019 is going to bring us another redesigned model coming from Ford. It will be the new Ford Flex that might not see the light of day before 2020, although it has been planned as a 2019 model. Be that as it may, the 2019 Ford Flex will certainly undergo some changes and improvements in terms of style and engine.
The next-generation Ford Flex is going to hit the market as a three-row crossover. This SUV will have large proportions, which means that you can expect lots of space inside its cabin. This full-size and robust crossover will be a great choice for your long family rides as well as business trips with your partners. It has not been confirmed yet whether the 2019 Flex will be using a brand-new platform, but it will definitely be more aerodynamic. It might offer some new body colors. When it comes to exterior features, this model will get a distinctive chrome grille and C-shaped headlights that will be using the latest LED technology. The redesigned taillights and dual exhaust tips can be seen in the rear part of the vehicle. The new Flex should be standing on standard 17-inch alloy wheels, but it could go up to 20-inch, depending on the trim you choose.
As we have already mentioned, large proportions of the 2019 Ford Flex will allow more space inside its cabin with three-row seating configurations. This model will perfectly accommodate up to seven adult passengers. The interior features and the equipment you get will of course depend on the chosen trim, but even the base model will not disappoint you. In higher trims the driver will get heated and cooled front seats covered in fine leather as well as a leather-wrapped steering wheel. The third row of seats can be folded flat thanks to one-touch Power Fold so you can get more cargo space. The dashboard is expected to be restyled and the driver will get a larger touch-screen display with the SYNC 3 infotainment system and options such as navigation, dual-zone automatic climate control and Wi-Fi. Airbags and collision detection are just some of the safety systems and driver assist features that will be included.
The base model of the 2019 Ford Flex will probably come with a 3.5-liter V6 engine that is expected to deliver nearly 300 horsepower and 250 pound-feet of torque. The other possibility under the engine could be a 2.7-liter Eco Boost V6 with 370 horsepower. The engine of the new Flex should be mated to a six-speed automatic transmission, same as 2019 F-150 and Transit. We hope for more information soon.
2019 Ford Flex Release Date and Price
The release date of the 2019 Ford Flex has still been a mystery. The estimated price of this model starts around $31,000.
