2010 Ford Flex Overview

When it was new, reviewers loved the 2010 Ford Flex for its family-friendly features, spacious third row and available EcoBoost engine, which make it one of the best choices in its class. The Flex gets great safety scores and test drivers said its interior is particularly well-designed, although they found some low-quality plastics disappointing. One of the Flex’s biggest selling points is its adult-sized third row, which is a rarity among 2010 midsize SUVs. It also comes with a long list of standard equipment, good fuel economy and available features like a refrigerated rear console.

The Flex comes with front-wheel drive and either a 262-horsepower V6 or a turbocharged 355-horsepower EcoBoost V6. The latter of which is available on SEL or Limited models with all-wheel drive. The base SE trim isn’t available with all-wheel drive, but offers standard features like a six-speaker stereo and Ford’s programmable MyKey system. Top-of-the-line Limited trims add features like a power liftgate, leather upholstery, a refrigerated center console and power-adjustable pedals.

Other Cars to Consider

If you like the Ford Flex but need more cargo space, consider the 2010 Honda Pilot. The Pilot doesn’t offer a third row that’s as spacious, but it matches the Flex with good safety ratings. While the Pilot lacks some of the slick tech features you’ll find on a fully-loaded Flex, test drivers said it’s a well-rounded choice with a comfortable ride.

The 2010 Chevrolet Traverse is one of the best crossovers in its class because of its huge cargo capacity, roomy third row, plethora of available features and smooth handling. Like the Ford Flex, the Chevrolet Traverse won’t be the nimblest 2010 crossover, but its interior space and good safety scores make the Traverse hard to beat.
