If you are in the market for a new car, chances are that you have specific needs. Some common provisions that consumers look for include safety, comfort, and convenience. The 2013 Ford Flex has got you covered.

One of the safest vehicles on the market, the 2013 Ford Flex combines the old with the new. Standard features include dual front, side and curtain airbags, and anti-lock brakes. New to the flex this year are Inflatable seat belts for added protection and adaptive cruise control with forward collision alert. All Flexes also include Curve Control and torque vectoring which add improvements to the stability control system. Learn more about these safety features at Scottsdale Ford.

The new Flex is larger and roomier than ever, and its three-row seating allows it to carry more people comfortably. Its passenger-car platform makes it lower and more car like than other Ford SUVs, and thus easier to drive and live with in daily use. Inside, the 2013 Flex receives a refreshed dashboard and instrument cluster that incorporates the latest versions of Microsoft Sync and MyFord Touch®. Providing two 4.2-inch screens in the instrument cluster and an 8-inch screen in the center stack, these standard features are sure to make it easier to manage information, control features and adjust settings while keeping you in touch with life and entertained on the road, hands free. Other interior enhancements include push-button start and rain sensing wipers. Leather-wrapped steering wheel with cruise, audio and 5-way controls allow you to keep your eyes on the road while driving.

Under the hood, the Flex acquired a power train update: the base 3.5-liter V6 now packs 20 more horsepower – 285 versus 265 – and has yielded one extra mile per gallon in both city and highway driving modes (18/25 mpg). Of course, customers will still be able to outfit the Flex with Ford’s 3.5-liter twin-turbocharged EcoBoost V6, which carries over unchanged.
