How to Rent a Ford Flex

by Charles Green

The Ford Flex defies easy categorization, appearing to be a station wagon but offering attributes found in minivans and crossover utility vehicles. Introduced for the 2009 model year, the Ford Flex can make for a very good rental vehicle if passenger room and storage capacity are important requirements.

Basics

The Ford Flex is a seven-passenger vehicle offering three rows of seating. The first row seats two, the second row seats three and the third row seats two passengers. Optionally, some Flex models replace the middle bench seat with two captain's chairs, reducing overall passenger room to six people.
