The Brawny yet Polished 2017 Ford Flex

By Emily Eppley | June 1st, 2017

If you’re looking for a family hauler and prefer a unique alternative to the minivan, look no further than the 2017 Ford Flex. It’s a roomy, richly appointed powerhouse packed with leading-edge technology to keep you both entertained and safe on the road ahead. Check out our favorite details of this mid-size SUV and then look at our current inventory of Ford Flex models.

Power for the 2017 Ford Flex comes from a naturally aspirated 3.5-liter V-6 engine that produces 287 horsepower and 254 lb-ft of torque in the base but you could also upgrade to a twin-turbo 3.5-liter EcoBoost V-6 that earns 365 horsepower and 350 lb-ft of torque. Both engines are teamed up with a six-speed automatic transmission that provides a buttery smooth driving experience. You can choose from three trim levels (the base SE, the upgraded SEL, and the top tier Limited) to match the engine available to your driving style and required powertrain options.

Inside this spacious vehicle, you’ll discover ample leg room, cunning storage solutions and premium materials that culminate in a plush, comfortable atmosphere. The Flex Limited has perforated leather-trimmed front seats, a leather-wrapped steering wheel with fine wood inlay, as well as wood inlay in the door-trim panels. You’ll find plenty of storage behind the third row or you can utilize the one-touch PowerFold® and tumble to tuck away those seats and make room for your next tailgate.

And you’ll feel like you have an extra set of eyes on the road, thanks to the Ford Flex suite of active safety features that provide alerts and assistance wherever necessary. Features like BLIS® (Blind Spot Information System) with Cross-Traffic Alert, available Adaptive Cruise Control, and Forward Collision Warning with Brake Support all help you avoid unwanted excitement on the road. And the Active Park Assist allows the vehicle to nearly park itself, with just a little help from you.
