The 2010 Ford Flex impresses in the passenger cabin, thanks to its glorious amount of electronic and common-sense features. The Flex sets itself miles apart from the current range of crossovers due to all the options and standard equipment available.

Just in terms of electronics, Ford offers its SYNC system, which uses voice activation to command MP3 players, cell phones, and an optional navigation system. A new development for 2010 is the fact that the mid-range SEL model now gets the SYNC system as standard. There is also a Sirius Satellite Radio with optional Travel Link services that provide traffic, weather, and other information on the go; an optional Sony audio system with 700 watts of power and surround sound; and a rearview camera for safety and visibility. New for 2010 is the ability to request a dual-headrest DVD entertainment system that will set buyers back $2,000.

“In six-passenger versions,” Automobile reports, “a refrigerator will be offered between the second row captain's chairs. Driven by a compressor, it will cool seven 12-ounce cans or two 20-ounce bottles to forty-one degrees. Ford's capless fuel filler system will find its way down to the Flex, too, and ambient lighting will continue its sweep through the Ford family.”
Other key features will be the optional four-panel Vista Roof and a hidden keyless entry pad that responds to a swipe of a finger like the Apple iPhone. Last year, Edmunds remarked that their “only complaint” was that there wasn’t a telescoping steering wheel; Ford has finally responded and rectified the situation, making the Flex even more attractive.

All three versions of the 2010 Ford Flex offer ample standard features. The Flex SE includes an AM/FM/CD player, 17-inch wheels, MyKey, and three-row seating. The Flex SEL adds on some chrome exterior trim, a Sony audio system, the SYNC system, MyKey, and Sirius Satellite Radio, as well as bigger 18-inch rims. The 2010 Ford Flex Limited piles on features like a 110V power outlet, high-intensity discharge headlamps, a power tailgate, Ford’s SYNC entertainment system, and 20-inch rims.

Buyers can also choose from a myriad of color combinations to customize the Flex, including the contrasting roof option.

Conclusion

The 2010 Ford Flex is fantastically equipped, with a laundry list of high-tech options.

How does the
TCC Rating work?
The TCC Rating is a clear numeric rating value based on a 10-point scale that reflects the overall opinion of our automotive experts on any vehicle and rolls up ratings we give each vehicle across sub-categories you care about like performance, safety, styling and more.

Our rating also has simple color-coded “Stop” (red), “Caution” (orange),
or “Go” (green) messages along with the numerical score so you can easily understand where we stand at a glance.

Our automotive experts then also collect and show you what other websites say about these different aspects of any vehicle. We do this leg work for you to simplify your research process.
