Ford Flex Sighted in Downtown Toronto
March 4th, 2008 7:14 AM Share
As if it already isn't hard enough to negotiate rush hour traffic in downtown Toronto… Whilst in the midst of lane-changing, I noticed a big blue box trying to buzz past. The boys from the big Blue Oval were out in their next save-the-company Hail Mary: the Ford Flex. The LE version of the FoMoCo people mover snuck-up behind me in south-of-the-border guise– no daytime running lights– on its way to somewhere (but still not a showroom). I managed to snap a couple of camera-phone shots. Let's just hope it lives up to the three years of hype once this big ass xB finally goes on sale.

- 3SpeedAutomatic Drove a rental Cherokee for several days at the beginning of this year. Since the inventory of rental cars is still low, this was a 2020 model with 48k miles and V6. Ran fine, no gremlins, graphics display was easy to work, plenty of power, & very comfortable. Someone must of disarmed the lane assistance feature for the steering wheel never shook (YES!!!!!!!!). However, this woman's voice kept nagging me about the speed limit (what's new!?!?!?!).I was impressed enough to consider this a prime candidate to replace my 11 yr old Ford Escape. Might get a good deal with the close out of the model. Time will tell. 🚗🚗🚗
- Bullnuke One wonders if this poor woman entered the US through Roxham Road...
- Johnds Years ago I pulled over a vehicle from either Manitoba or Ontario in North Dakota for speeding. The license plates and drivers license did not come up on my dispatchers computer. The only option was to call their government. Being that it was 2 am, that wasn’t possible so they were given a warning.
- BEPLA My own theory/question on the Mark VI:Had Lincoln used the longer sedan wheelbase on the coupe - by leaning the windshield back and pushing the dashboard & steering wheel rearward a bit - not built a sedan - and engineered the car for frameless side windows (those framed windows are clunky, look cheap, and add too many vertical lines in comparison to the previous Marks) - Would the VI have remained an attractive, aspirational object of desire?
- VoGhost Another ICEbox? Pass. Where are you going to fill your oil addiction when all the gas stations disappear for lack of demand? I want a pickup that I can actually use for a few decades.
@Bancho: The market is dwindling for minivans, I agree. It's all about CUV's now. Which all appear to appeal to women not men. I just like the boxy look of the Range Rover and it reminded me of that. I still would need my arm twisted to buy a Ford though. Maybe not for a Mustang! :)
