The Ford Flex, a boxy crossover will be no more come 2020. This information comes after Ford and Candian union Unifor reached a tentative deal last night. The deal will see Ford make investments totaling $700 million with the majority going towards their two engine plants in Windsor. The remainder will go towards Ford's Oakville assembly plant - home to the Ford Edge and Flex, and Lincoln MKT and MKX production.
Speaking with the Windsor Star, Bob Scott, vice-chair of the master bargaining committee for Unifor revealed that the Flex would cease production in 2020. The fate of the sister model MKT is still a mystery. Ford spokesperson Kerri Stoakley declined to comment on this story to the Detroit Free Press, citing the automaker's policy on not discussing future product plans.
This isn't the first time that a union official let loose information about future products. Back in September, a UAW official revealed that the Ford Bronco and Ranger would enter production at Ford's Wayne, MI plant in 2018.
The Ford Flex has never been a big seller for the brand. In 2015, the brand only moved 19,570 Flexs. This pales in comparison to the 249,251 Explorers sold in 2015.
