Ford Flex/Lincoln MKT Stir Questions

Posted on November 29, 2011

SOLID VEHICLES: Krystal is reporting early interest in the MKT stretch limousine, while at least one operator in Virginia uses the Ford Flex for airport service. Both are roomy and comfortable. But. . . From USA Today: "The Ford Flex is a love-it-or-hate-it design. It's boxy and retro. Arriving in the middle of a recession a few years back didn't help. But outside of California, both Flex and its upscale sister, Lincoln MKT, sell in meager amounts next to mainstream crossovers such as the Chevrolet Traverse and even Ford's own Explorer. Can some refreshes to these two vehicles skyrocket them onto families' radars?" USA Today article here. -- Martin Romjue, LCT editor
