The entry-level trim for this new crossover MINI-inspired minivan, the 2009 Ford Flex SE seats seven in three rows and holds between 15 and 83 cubic feet of cargo, depending on whether both second and third rows and the front passenger seat are folded flat. The front-wheel-drive crossover rides on a four-wheel independent suspension, powered by a 24-valve, 3.5-liter DOHC V6. Paired with a 6-speed automatic, the powertrain puts out 262 hp and 248 ft-lbs of torque at 4,500 RPM. Equipped with optional trailer wiring, towing power maxes out at 4,100 pounds.
Although not yet tested for impact, the 2009 Flex SE comes fully equipped with safety features. 18-inch alloy wheels feature a tire monitor. Traction and stability control, a front stabilizer bar, 4-wheel disc and ABS brakes with electronic brakeforce distribution, and dual front-side and side curtain airbags for all three rows are also standard. Rear parking sensors help when backing up. In the lighting department, the crossover offers up standard foglights, automatic headlights with halogen lamps, and an auto-dimming rearview mirror. Headlights are also activated when you turn on the windshield wipers.
Convenience features abound in this base model. A full power setup includes a 6-way power driver's seat, keypad entry, and wheel-mounted cruise and audio controls. The CD/MP3 player features an MP3 input jack. Intermittent front and rear wipers, a trip computer, tachometer, temperature display and compass, ten cupholders, and 12V power outlets in the two front rows and cargo area are also standard. Leather wraps around the steering wheel and shifter, along with alloy trim on the dash. The third row splits 50/50, while the second-row bench splits 60/40. Second-row captain's chairs are available. A 6-CD changer with satellite radio is also optional, along with Bluetooth, 17-inch alloy wheels, and roof rails.

The 2009 Ford Flex SEL represents the middle trim in the lineup for this new crossover. As such, it adds some luxurious features. The wagon seats seven in three rows, with legroom measuring 40 inches in the front and 44 inches in the second row. Both second- and third-row benches split-fold flat (60/40 and 50/50 respectively), along with the front passenger seat, expanding the 15-cubic-foot trunk to 83 cubic feet. Roof rails and a towing harness can be added for up to 4,100 pounds of towing capacity. This comes care of a 262-hp, 3.5-liter DOHC V6 and 9-speed automatic.
The front-wheel-drive 2009 Flex SEL features leather upholstery and adds a 6-way power passenger seat and a 10-way power driver's seat to standard equipment. Other upgrades include heated mirrors and heated front seats, dual-zone climate control, and a 6-CD player with MP3 input and satellite radio, heard through premium Sony speakers. Wood accents join the leather and alloy trim already present. Other standard features include a full power setup, keypad entry, wheel-mounted cruise and audio controls, a trip computer, a temperature display and compass, a security system, and intermittent front and rear wipers. Ten cupholders cover all rows, and there are three power outlets (one in the trunk). Available options for the SEL are the Vista sunroof, with three panels for each row, and a mini refrigerator. Other options include a DVD player, memory settings for the driver, power-adjustable pedals, second-row captain's chairs, and LED interior lighting.
The 2009 Flex SEL rides on 18-inch alloy wheels and comes with 4-wheel disc and ABS brakes, a front stabilizer bar, and traction and stability control. There are side curtain airbags for all rows, along with dual front-side airbags with passenger deactivation. Backup sensors, automatic halogen headlamps, foglights, a tire monitor, and an auto-dimming rearview mirror round out the equipment list. HID xenon headlamps are available.

The 2009 Ford Flex SEL AWD adds on-demand AWD performance for better traction in slippery situations, but this crossover family wagon is not a true off-roader. The AWD system comes with a limited-slip center differential and is powered by a 3.5-liter, 24-valve DOHC V6 engine. Paired with a 6-speed automatic, it puts out 262 hp and 248 ft-lbs of torque at 4,500 RPM. The 2009 Flex SEL AWD uses 18-inch alloy wheels and sits on a four-wheel independent suspension. Maximum towing capacity when outfitted with the optional trailer package is 4,100 pounds.
Other than its extra traction, the 2009 Flex SEL AWD offers the same features as the front-wheel-drive SEL. 4-wheel disc and ABS brakes come with electronic brakeforce distribution. Traction and stability control are standard, as well as a front stabilizer bar and dual front-side and side curtain airbags for all three rows. Foglights, automatic headlights, halogen lamps, and an auto-dimming rearview mirror make up the lighting package, with the option to add HID lamps. A tire monitor measures pressure, and rear backup sensors help with parking.
The 2009 Flex SEL AWD seats seven in three rows (or six if you replace the second-row bench with optional captain's chairs). Both rear rows split-fold flat, along with the front passenger seat, to offer up to 83 cubic feet of storage. The cargo area features tie-downs and a net, and an optional roof rack can supplement capacity. The SEL provides leather upholstery, a 10-way power driver's and 6-way power passenger seat, heated front seats and mirrors, power windows, locks, and mirrors, wheel-mounted cruise and audio controls, leather and wood trim, a trip computer, a garage remote, and keypad entry. Intermittent front and rear wipers, a temperature readout and compass, tilt steering, ten cupholders, and three power outlets provide added convenience. Entertainment comes from a 10-speaker, 6-CD changer with satellite radio and an MP3 input jack. A DVD player is optional. Other options add a three-panel Vista sunroof, a refrigerator (with the captain's chairs), power-adjustable pedals, and memory settings for the driver.

Many of the options available on other trims come standard with the 2009 Ford Flex Limited. This front-wheel-drive crossover wagon is powered by a 3.5-liter DOHC V6, with 262 hp and 248 ft-lbs of torque at 4,500 RPM. A 6-speed automatic is the only transmission. The wagon seats seven in three rows, with both the front passenger seat and the split-folding second- and third-row benches folding flat. With all seats down, the 15-cubic-foot cargo capacity grows to 83 cubic feet. Tie-downs and a net help in the cargo area, and both a roof rack and trailer wiring can be added. The Flex Limited can tow up to 4,100 pounds. Second-row captain's chairs are available as an option. Legroom exceeds expectations, with 40 inches up front and 44 in the second row.
The 2009 Flex Limited adds memory settings for the 10-way power driver's and 6-way power passenger seat. Other upgrades include xenon HID headlamps, Bluetooth, an iPod input jack, premium leather upholstery, and larger 19-inch alloy wheels. Though not yet tested for safety, the wagon provides plenty of standard equipment. Traction and stability control, 4-wheel disc and ABS brakes, a front stabilizer bar, and dual front-side airbags with passenger sensors and side curtain airbags for all three rows should rank the Flex highly. Automatic headlights, foglights, an auto-dimming rearview mirror, parking sensors, and a tire monitor are also included. Power-adjustable pedals are optional.
A full power setup features heated mirrors, heated front seats, remote keypad entry, wheel-mounted cruise and audio controls, a garage remote, and a trip computer. The 6-CD changer is MP3-compatible, and a trial period of satellite radio is also standard. All are played through a 10-speaker Sony sound system. Intermittent front and rear wipers, ten cupholders, power outlets in the front, second row, and cargo area, tilt steering, a temperature display and compass, and dual-zone climate control are all included in the 2009 Flex Limited. Leather trims the steering wheel and shifter, while alloy and faux wood trim accent the dash and doors. Added options for the Limited trim include a voice-activated navigation system with real-time traffic updates. Other add-ons are a DVD player, a three-panel sunroof, a power liftgate, and a refrigerator that holds seven 12-ounce cans.

An on-demand AWD system with a limited-slip center differential adds some performance versatility to the 2009 Ford Flex Limited AWD. This top-of-the-line trim uses 19-inch alloy wheels and comes standard with traction and stability control, but its AWD system is geared more toward slippery conditions than off-road adventure. Other safety features include 4-wheel disc and ABS brakes with electronic brakeforce distribution, dual front-side and side curtain airbags for all rows, passenger airbag deactivation, automatic xenon HID headlamps, and parking sensors. Foglights, an auto-dimming rearview mirror, and a tire monitor are also standard.
The crossover wagon sits on a four-wheel independent suspension. It gets its power from a 262-hp, 24-valve, 3.5-liter DOHC V6 and 6-speed automatic. Fuel economy figures have not yet been released. The wagon can tow up to 4,100 pounds with the optional trailer wiring. Seating seven in three rows, the 2009 Flex Limited AWD can hold up to 83 cubic feet of cargo with both split-folding rear rows folded flat. For longer objects, the front passenger seat also folds flat. Tie-downs and a cargo net come standard, along with a power outlet in the trunk. A roof rack costs extra. A second-row floor console can be added for more storage. Also available for the second row are captain's chairs with their own footrest. With this option, you can also add a refrigerator that sits between the chairs.
Moving up to the Limited gets you top-quality leather upholstery and memory settings for the power front seats (10-way driver's and 6-way passenger). Already included are a full power setup, heated seats and mirrors, remote keypad entry, a garage remote, a trip computer, and wheel-mounted cruise and audio controls. The 10-speaker sound system consists of a 6-CD changer, MP3 input jack, and satellite radio. There are two more power outlets up front and ten cupholders distributed across the rows. Intermittent front and rear wipers, tilt steering, dual-zone climate control, a tachometer, and a compass and temperature readout complete the package. The interior is decked out in leather, wood, and alloy trim. LED interior lighting can be added. Available options for the 2009 Flex Limited AWD include a DVD player, a voice-activated navigation system, a power liftgate, and a three-panel Vista sunroof.
