Dealership Information

Kick your daily routes up a notch when you decide to climb into the driver’s seat of the Ford Flex. From a variety of useful interior amenities, to a distinct exterior that helps flesh out the interior for more cargo space, this three-row midsize SUV is luxurious in its offerings. You can test out the Flex's capabilities when you visit Gillespie Ford. Give us a call at 847-281-5507 to schedule a test drive!

There are so many ways in which the Flex optimizes your daily commutes, and letting you stretch out in the 42.6 inches of front legroom provided is certainly one of them. No one will be left behind, thanks to its massive 7-passenger seating capacity. You can always fit your groceries into the standard 20 cubic ft. of cargo space1 awaiting behind the rear seats, but there are also many ways to reconfigure the back rows to suit your needs. Utilizing the 50/50 fold-flat-into-floor third-row bench seat, you can expand the back into 43.2 cubic ft. of room1 to fit a bike for an excursion to County Forest Preserve. In order to gain the maximum 83.2 cubic ft. of cargo area1, you just have to fold flat the 60/40 second-row bench seat. Whether you need to keep some seats and fold down others, or make them all disappear into the floor of the Flex, this adaptable vehicle will make it happen for you.

Settling into the standard 6-way power-adjustable driver’s seat, you’ll start to notice all of the little conveniences equipped throughout the cabin of the 2017 Ford Flex optimally within your reach. Available steering wheel-mounted cruise control will have you riding down Tri-State Tollway with ease, while you tune into your favorite optional SiriusXM® Satellite Radio2 stations. Thanks to the standard SYNC®3 system, you have a display screen integrated in the center stack. This ensures that you always have a backward perspective when you reverse as the Rear View Camera4 projects a live-image of what’s behind you onto the monitor. With four 12-volt power outlets implemented throughout the cabin of the Flex, your whole family can charge their smartphones when you’re en route to Six Flags Great America for the day.

A body like the 2017 Flex’s should be admired from all angles, so we’re happy to take you through each and every exterior detail that makes this SUV worthwhile. The Easy Fuel® capless fuel filler will keep your stops at the gas station as clean as possible, while the body-color door handles simply add a flawless elegance to the Flex. The side mirrors are exceptionally capable, featuring power and heating functionality, as well as integrated with blind spot mirrors, so you always have the perspective you need when merging lanes on Skokie Highway. The halogen headlamps automatically illuminate the road when there isn’t enough natural light and feature wiper activation if they need a bit of cleaning.

Make sure to experience all of these amazing amenities at Gillespie Ford, where you can get behind the wheel of the 2017 Ford Flex for sale in Gurnee, IL, as soon as today. We are eager to show you the breadth of what this three-row midsize SUV has to offer, so come on over to 18834 W Grand Avenue in Gurnee, IL, for a test drive. There’s no need to hesitate any longer—the Flex is awaiting your visit.
