2018 Ford Flex Concept
The Ford Flex is certainly the slow-selling model of Ford Company, but according to numerous sources the carmaker already work on the brand-new Flex, and the upcoming model will be introduced sometime next year. The new 2018 Ford Flex will be a multifunctional vehicle, and we can say that this model could be described either as a minivan, wagon or crossover. The forthcoming vehicle will receive some slight redesigns but it will not be changed too much, considering that this model will be probably the last model of the current generation. We expect a new infotainment system instead of the current. Some expectations from the company are that this model will attract a great attention of potential customers and that could be the best-selling Flex so far.
