Thestreet.com, Yahoo Autos, Edmunds, Kelley Blue Book and TrueCar worked with researchers at Texas A&M to make the top ten road trip cars list, choosing the Flex as the best.
Ford is a global leader when it comes to protecting the environment and the people who buy their cars. The ASG awards are just more proof of this.
The Automotive Science Group created the Automotive Performance Index to help consumers better assess value in the automotive marketplace. The Index incorporates social, environmental and economic performance analysis to introduce new performance measures that better differentiate market leaders from mainstream competitors.
It’s almost family road trip season, and everyone in the family wants to look cool as they travel down the road. If your family is ready to upgrade and become the coolest family in the neighborhood, www.thestreet.com says the Ford Flex and Ford Escape are among the coolest family vehicles.
The Flex might be the overall coolest vehicle on the road. It has all the practicality of the van, but it looks like a modern wagon with a style not seen in any other vehicle on the road. The Flex easily fits seven passengers, and second row passengers get 44 inches of legroom. But even the tallest passengers will easily get into the third row comfortably.
The 2013 Ford Flex is something to be seen. It’s not quite a crossover, not an SUV, but it’s also not a minivan or a sedan. What it is is one of the coolest wagons on the road today. It features great space for passengers and a ton of trunk space. Add in the unique styling, great MPG and nice technology, the Flex is a vehicle to be seen.
The Flex is a long wagon that features room for up to 7 passengers. In a lot of 7 passenger vehicles, you have to be very small to fit in the third row, but the Flex is different. We once had to take a group trip and we had 6 grown adult salesmen in a Flex. One passenger was more than 6’2 inches tall, and he also had very long legs. He choose to sit in the third row, and he could easily climb inside and comfortably.
No matter what size and shape your passengers are, we think they’ll enjoy sitting in the back seats of the Flex, something they couldn’t say in your current vehicle. But if you don’t have 7 passengers and you need additional space, it is easy to fold down that rear seat and use the Flex as if it were a van or a truck.
If you have big family, you know the need for third row seat.
It can be a crowded and complicated quest to find that perfect third row choice though.
Should I get the SUV? The Extended Wagon? Or the Minivan?
Luckily for us, KBB recently announced which are the best three-row vehicles less than $30,000. Not surprising, the Honda Odyssey was KBB’s No.1 Choice. But many other top models also finished in the top ten:

The F-150 has always been America’s most popular pickup. Earlier this year, Edmonds said the F-150 has the best retained value.
Earlier this year, J.D. Power said the Ford Flex was one of the most satisfying vehicles to drive.
The Flex and F250 are also great outdoor vehicles.
Congrats for Ford for another quality awards.
