Ford Flex and Ford Escape Among Coolest Family Vehicles

The 2013 Ford Flex is one of the coolest family vehicles on the road today.

 

2013 Ford Escape

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.

Review: 2013 Ford Flex

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.
