For 2016, the
Ford Flex gains a rearview camera on all trims and tosses the problematic MyFord Touch system in favor of a new, user-friendly Sync 3 setup. A revision to EPA figures this year drops fuel economy by a few mpg.
For 2015, the Ford Flex gains heated side mirrors on the SE trim, push-button start for the SEL, and a heated steering wheel for the Limited model. Some new colors round out the major changes.
About Ford Flex
Ford’s 2016 Flex
crossoverSUV seems the logical evolution of the full-size family
wagon of the 1960s and 1970s. Low to the ground and sporting long side glass, the Flex makes no pretense of being a dual-purpose SUV. Those seeking capable off-road ability will be better off in a
Honda Pilot or
Ford Explorer. However, if the most treacherous road conditions you encounter are snow-covered streets, then the 7-passenger Flex has much to offer. The Flex’s roomy interior can be configured to carry large cargo loads, and its lower ride height makes for a smooth ride and easy step-in. A choice of V6 engines, numerous electronic and convenience features and one-of-a-kind styling all combine to make the Flex the perfect family wagon.
