OUR FIRST LOOK: 2013 FORD FLEX

So, the 2013 Ford Flex has arrived to the showroom.  We have received a 2013 Ford Flex Limited w/EcoBoost.  Just to highlight one of the updates for the Flex model line on this specific vehicle that we think will make a lot of people happy is the improved hp, 365 hp (formerly 355).  Also, the 6-speed SelectShift Automatic  transmission is now standard. 

While there wasn’t an extreme overhaul of the 2013 Ford Flex’s design, there are still a lot of great updates that we want to share with you.
