Love this Flex Titanium and its white and black color scheme, especially the black F L E X letters on the leading edge of the hood and the blacked-out, three-bar horizontal grille. I don't even mind the twenty-inch polished-aluminum wheels, and I'm not usually a fan of such wheels. The whole look: white bottom, black cap greenhouse, works well for me. I think it looks quite cool.

The Ford Flex has never quite taken off with buyers. Sales for each of GM's full-size crossovers, the Chevy Traverse, GMC Acadia, and Buick Enclave, have beaten out the Flex so far this year, and Ford's own smaller crossovers, the Escape and Edge, regularly blow it away. Perhaps buyers don't want a funky neo-woody-wagon after all. Ford seems to be conceding this point by introducing the three-row, traditionally styled Explorer on the Flex's platform.
