Every time we see a Flex on the road, it looks cartoonish to us – those two massive rectangles sitting on cute little wheels. We wouldn't be surprised if, a la CARS, a Flex started talking to us. The "ReFlex" above, designed by Sean Smith of SS Designs and being prepared by CGS Motorsports for this year's SEMA Show in Las Vegas, looks like it could have something interesting to say. Who knew that a minimal body kit, a drop, and a set of 22s could give the Flex that personality it's been missing. The custom DuPont-painted CUV is also getting a suede interior, a Kicker sound system, and even new door solenoids from SPAL. We'll take it, or at least a ride in it. Check out the full press release after the jump, and stay tuned for the full report from SEMA.

      Personally not a fan of the Flex myself, but this tune looks pretty fresh. I can dig it.

      Man, Extra horsepower to the wheels makes me want ti upgrade it to mines.

      I was looking at a Flex the other day, and I just realized how weird they look! Not ugly, but WEIRD! Almost like they were squashed down or something. Well, they are unique, that is for sure, and I prefer it to fake poser suvs, and even faker poser crossovers, so I hope they sell. They seem to be good family vehicles.

      Lol@ Reflex! Cool name, and this souped up one is not bad looking at all.

      I saw one the other day, wow its so not cool. just a crossover of whatever. just a plain. This is why ford is going down. they just dont make cool cars, except the mustang..
        • 6 Years Ago
        Well if that were the reason, Toyota would have been gone long ago.

        No Ford is "going down" because of ignorant people and a crappy market.

      It looks like a blinged out Woody, which actually makes it cooler then it normally looks, but still would not be seen it.

      Gag ReFlex! Ha Ha!

      Anyway I kinda agree with a comment I heard another Blog. The Flex seems kinda like a Modern day Woodie.
