2015 Ford Flex

Up to 18 MPG city / 25 MPG hwy
$29,100 - $42,400

Pitched as a hip, unconventional substitute for a minivan, the three-row Ford Flex has room for up to seven passengers and regular side doors. The front end design, instrument panel, steering wheel, and seat trim are updated for 2013. Six new wheel styles have joined the roster as well. Sold as SE, SEL, and Limited models, the base engine is a 3.5-liter V-6 with 287 horsepower and 254 pound-feet of torque. It spins a 6-speed automatic transmission and either front- or all-wheel drive. Additional grunt is offered through a 3.5-liter twin-turbocharged V-6 producing 365 hp and 350 lb-ft. The "big" engine can only be paired to a 6-speed auto and all-wheel drive, yet the EPA-verified fuel economy penalty is just 1 highway mpg compared to the regular AWD Flex (16/23 mpg city/highway vs. 16/24). The FWD Flex is rated 18/25 mpg city/highway. Six airbags protect occupants and there's the option of inflatable rear seatbelts. Sync with MyFord in-car connectivity comes standard, with MyFord Touch available as an upgrade. Extra electable technologies include rain-sensing windshield wipers, power-folding side mirrors, a Blind Spot Information System, and Intelligent Access (remote start capability and push-button start). The Ford Flex is covered by a 3-year/36,000-mile bumper-to-bumper warranty. See more... See Less
