Seeing Ford's upcoming Flex crossover on the road must be like spotting an antique PT Cruiser in the late 2020s. All those right angles make it appear out of time, and yet its got a time-neutral quality I'd call timeless if that word didn't imply a 25th wedding anniversary present. Still, the Flex's simple geometry will likely clash with the more complex Edge on Ford lots, which will either make Ford's line seem disjointed or eclectic, depending on the beholder. Either way, its about as rad as a giant automaker has managed in a while, and we can't wait to throw our kiteboards in and hit the South of Jersey.
