The American manufacturer Ford is well known around the world for its SUVs, legendary sports cars or more production classic models. One such crossover, with an unusual appearance, was the Ford Flex, which combined the features of a crossover and station wagon.

The first generation of crossover Ford Flex was introduced back in 2005 at the New York Auto Show, and sales of the first generation started in 2008-2009. If you ignore the manufacturer’s emblem, you can hardly say it’s a Ford. Rough body features and a low suspension, say little about the crossover. The second generation of the new Ford Flex went on sale in 2013 and has been in production until this year. Compared to the first generation, the updates are not that big. Rather, new features and safety systems have been added.

Your vehicle is equipped with an Intelligent Oil-Life Monitor that determines when you should change the engine oil based on how your vehicle is used. By using several important factors in its calculations, the monitor helps reduce the cost of owning your vehicle and reduces environmental waste at the same time.
