2013 Ford Flex Called Comfortable, Well-Made And Fun

Posted on April 2, 2012

The 2013 Ford Flex crossover SUV/ wagon has been spotted in limousine fleets throughout the country as an alternative to traditional livery vehicles, such as in Virginia, where Carey Transportation of Virginia added six Ford Flex vehicles to its Airport Connection fleet in 2009. The Ford Flex fleet is now sole property of James River Transportation of Virginia since Carey and James River ended their partnership.

James River still uses the Ford Flex models for airport transfers but has also made them available for as-directed runs and point-to-point service. They are priced at $50 per hour.

The Ford Flex was also listed on Forbes’ Best New Car Deals of January earlier this year.

Autoblog.com says the Flex’s winning points are its “looks, versatility and friendly driving demeanor compared to minivans and SUVs that sit higher off the ground.”

The in-depth review covers style, performance, driving experience and technology. The review arrives at the conclusion that the “Flex remains one of those models that its maker did a terrific job of executing. It’s comfortable. The ride is much more pleasant than the alternatives. Interior comfort and fit-and-finish is up to snuff. The vehicle’s design, while clearly not being for everyone, is fun.”

The 2013 Ford Flex gets a fuel economy of 18mpg city and 25mpg highway.
