2013 Ford Flex
2013 Ford Flex

New For 2013

An updated Flex went on sale last spring as a 2013 model. Styling changes were made to the exterior, and the interior got a redesigned instrument cluster, steering wheel, and seat trim. The Titanium model has been dropped for 2013, leaving the Limited as the top-spec Flex. There are three new exterior colors.


The Ford Flex is as adept at moving people and their belongings as is a minivan, and it is as satisfying to drive as a sport wagon. Unfortunately for Ford, however, the Flex’s dynamic qualities haven’t translated to real-world sales; the Flex is the slowest-selling passenger vehicle in the Ford lineup. To address some of the Flex’s perceived shortcomings, Ford introduced a face-lifted and updated 2013 model that went on sale last spring. The Flex’s styling has been updated with a new, one-bar grille, new headlamps, and new wheel styles. Under the hood, the base 3.5-liter V-6 receives variable valve timing, increasing output to 287 hp and 254 lb-ft. The EcoBoost V-6—available only on the top-spec Limited—provides V-8- like power while matching the fuel economy of the base V-6. All versions of the 2013 Flex have stronger brakes and other chassis updates. The former are courtesy of a larger brake master cylinder and booster, drastically reducing pedal travel and making for a firmer, more consistent feel. In fact, the front brakes are now identical to those on the Taurus SHO. The non-EcoBoost Flex gains electric power steering. All-wheel drive is available with the normally aspirated 3.5-liter V-6. EcoBoost Flexes get standard all-wheel drive. As before, interior amenities abound, but you’ll have to pay extra for many of them.


Front, side, and side curtain air bags; ABS; traction and stability control; tire-pressure monitors; a reverse sensing system; and programmable MyKey are standard. Inflatable second-row outboard safety belts are optional. Blind-spot mirrors are standard on S and SE; BLIS is standard on Limited and optional on SE. A rearview camera and adaptive cruise control with collision warning are optional. Trailer-sway control is optional with the towing package.

  • Unique styling
  • Versatile interior
  • Easy-to-access third row

You won't like:

  • Expensive when fully optioned

2013 Ford Flex SEL Front Left View
People seem to either love the Flex or hate it. I don't know if I love it, but I most certainly like it. I like the distinctly American, elegant, modern exterior styling. I like the seats in the first and second rows, and even the third-row seats are fairly roomy and comfortable. I like the performance of the upgraded V-6; 287 hp is plenty of grunt, and if you want more, you can choose the turbocharged and direct-injected EcoBoost V-6. There's no question that a minivan would be even more practical and versatile than the Flex, but no minivan looks even remotely as cool as the Flex. So you learn to live with the more cumbersome liftover height at the tailgate and the high and thick instrument panel that seems to be a barrier between you and the windshield. If I had a family of two or three kids and didn't want a minivan, the Flex would be at or near the top of my shopping list.

The refreshed 2013 Ford Flex was first shown to the public at the Los Angeles auto show last fall, but the sunny climes of California couldn't have seemed farther away as we drove the Flex through snow, ice, rain, and sleet in western Oregon. It's a good thing our test cars were equipped with all-wheel drive and a full set of safety technologies.
