The 2014 Ford Flex has started arriving on dealer’s lots (including our own), and we’ve been getting the age-old question:
What’s new for 2014?
And the answer, for better or worse, is:
There haven’t been any changes to the lineup or availability of the Ford Flex between 2013 and 2014. The 2014 has all the same great safety features, trim levels, technology, and engine options as the 2013 had, including MyFord and MyFord Touch, as well as all of the optional features like a refrigerated second row center console, rear camera, and adaptive cruise control.
The only updates to speak of between 2013 and 2014 are sort of behind-the-scenes: the SYNC voice control system got a software update that makes it more receptive, and better able to interpret what you are saying, including improved noise and echo cancellation during phone calls. Also, the MyFord Touch system is now compatible with tablets, such as Apple’s iPad, so you can access music and other media through USB connection. Audible.com Audiobooks are now supported also, so you can listen to Audible.com content using voice commands or using the MyFord Touch 8-inch center console touchscreen.
One other minor change is in nomenclature: the “Titanium Appearance Package”, available on the SEL and Limited Trim levels, has been renamed, simply, the “Appearance Package“. It also has added monochromatic body-color roof as an option.
Apart from these extraordinarily minuscule changes, everything else you know and love about the 2013 Ford Flex has been preserved for 2014.
Author’s note: Ford sure did make this article very easy to research and write. I’m glad they hit the nail on the head with the Flex in 2013, and didn’t feel a need to make a bunch of changes for 2014.
