Ford Flexes Pricing Muscle: $28,995

February 27, 2008

It's one of the more highly anticipated crossovers of 2008 -- and now, Ford's Flex crossover apparently has a base price assigned to it.

Automotive News reports that Ford will charge $28,995, including destination, for the base 2009 Ford Flex when it goes on sale in the summer. The weekly news reader says it got its information from a dealer printout.

According to the info, the Flex will be offered in three trim levels and in front- or all-wheel drive. The most expensive Flex Limited will top the pricing ladder at $37,255.

Six- and seven-passenger versions of the Flex will be offered, and a 3.5-liter V-6 with "more than 260 horsepower" will be standard. The sole transmission will be a six-speed automatic.

Last year at its New York Auto Show debut, the Flex made a big impression with limo-like equipment, including second-row footrests, the Ford Sync "infotainment" system, an optional rear-seat DVD system with eight-inch screen, a 2300-song digital jukebox, even a refrigerator. No information on pricing of those options has been announced.

Ford will assemble the Flex at its Oakville, Ontario, plant. The Flex will be priced above the current Taurus X crossover, which is expected to be replaced by a production version of the Explorer America concept from the recent Detroit auto show.
