A full-size crossover SYV vehicle made by the Ford Motor Company, the Flex lasted just a decade and replaced the Taurus (although slightly bigger).

An original concept was built as a multi-purpose vehicle which was refined and changed to a 5-door car upon its release.

Manufactured by Ford Canada at the Oakville Assembly plant in Ontario, the Flex was first shown at the Chicago Auto Show.

Using the Ford CD3 Platform, the Flex has three rows of seating and was predominantly boxy in its aesthetic.

Peter Horbury was the designer here, having previously worked on other cars such as the Mitsubishi Charisma, Volvo S40, Volvo V40 and the Volvo C70.

Two engines were available including a 2.5-liter V6 with a 6-speed automatic transmission, capable of towing 4,500 lbs.

Three trim levels could be purchased, the SE, SEL and the Ltd, the latter was a premium version.

With the ability to seat up to 7 people the Flex proved very popular with larger families with its third row of bench seating.

For a premium car, Ford added the ‘Titanium’ to the trim lineup, which was essentially just the Ltd with a number of cosmetic differences, i.e. blacked out lights, a 3 bar grille, no badge and differently colored upholstery.

In 2010, the Flex was voted the third-best affordable mid-sized family SUV on the market by US News (beaten only by the Buick Enclave and Chevrolet Traverse).

Taken directly from reports of issues, the Flex proved to be Ford's most reliable vehicle. Despite this, Ford only managed a little under 30,000 units sold per year, which was deemed unacceptably low and so in 2019, the car was taken out of production.
