The Flex is a seven-passenger, three-row vehicle that is usually categorized as a large SUV.    The Ford Flex is a proven vehicle for large families.  It has always attracted those who want to stand out in a crowd of large SUV’s.  For 2013, this is a renewed Flex that comes equipped with much more technology, better fuel economy, and a more modern appearance. 

A large group of automotive journalists were invited to Portland, Oregon during March to preview and test-drive the 2013 Ford Flex.  It was anticipated that it would be cool and possibly rainy weather.  Instead, the city was inundated with a heavy snowfall, blanketing the nearby mountains and creating almost-hazardous conditions in higher elevations of the Cascades.  It definitely was a challenging drive and allowed the media personnel to put the cars through their most adventurous moves.

Automotive journalist Alan Gell was there and describes the Ride and Drive event as well as the features found on the 2013 Flex.
