About Ford Flex

Ford’s 2016 Flex crossover SUV 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.

For 2011, a new Titanium trim on the Ford Flex joins the SE, SEL and Limited. The Titanium is easily identified by its blacked out tail lamps, black chrome grille, black roof, black mirror caps, unique interior and 20-inch painted luster nickel wheels. Other 2011 Edge improvements include the addition of HD radio to the optional navigation package, and an available power folding third-row seat with reversible tailgate feature that allows the seat to face outward from the rear hatch.

The big news for 2010 is the availability of Ford's 355-horsepower twin-turbo 3.5-liter EcoBoost V6 engine. Other items of note include an updated SYNC system with turn-by-turn direction and traffic updates; the MyKey system, which allows the vehicle's owner to set limits on top speed and radio volume and Pull-Drift Compensation, which automatically helps drivers offset pulling or drifting caused by strong crosswinds or uneven pavement.

The Flex is more than just another family vehicle; it's a bellwether signaling the future of Ford design. Compare it to the Explorer or Taurus X and you'll discover a vehicle with far more flair, a marked attention to detail and an interior that seems more a creation of Lincoln than Ford. Most important, the Flex is attracting reams of positive attention from both the press and the buying public – a PR plus for the struggling auto giant.

"This car follows our use of Chevy Suburbans and meets almost every need as well, only cargo space is smaller! With sports gear, a large dog and fluctuating number of passengers, this is a fantastic car. The ride is lovely if we're out with adults for an evening and for family use, the Flex works well for extra older kids with the forward-facing rear seats which are true seats, safe and comfortable, unlike rear mini-van or smaller SUV rear seats! Overall, a fantastic and really nice, smooth car! One can enjoy for travel and for easy transport of lots of things to college dorms!"

"I was looking at large suv's to buy. I started working at a new job and rode to work in a Flex.I could not believe the room in the back seat and the fuel mileage this vehicle got.I was sold. The flex provides great fuel economy and plenty of room on long trips.I do not use it much around town, but great on the highway with lots of comfort."
