About Ford Flex

Ford Flex, as a full-size Crossover Utility Vehicle (CUV), has been produced by the great American multinational automaker Ford Motor Company since June 3, 2008. When it was first introduced for the 2009 model year, Ford Flex was designed to replace the Ford Freestyle, Ford Taurus X and Ford Freestar. Although being manufactured through about two generations, Ford Flex has been ranked the most reliable large sized SUV and Ford's most reliable vehicle as ranked by Consumer Reports and received well.
The first-generation Ford Flex (2009-2012) made its debut at the 2007 New York International Auto Show as a six or seven-passenger seating 5-door SUV. It was offered in base SE, mid-level SEL and top-trim Limited trim levels. Back then, Ford Flex was powered by a 3.5 L V6 engine cranking out 262 horsepower and then in 2010, it added a 3.5 L V6 turbocharged engine rated at 355 horsepower. Both engines were paired with a 6-speed automatic transmission. Then the second-generation Ford Flex (2013-present) is a seven-passenger crossover wagon with a boxy body designed to maximize interior volume and style. Trim levels are carried over from the previous generation and now its power source the 3.5 L V6 engine could produce 287 horsepower and 254 pound-feet of torque and the 3.5 L EcoBoost V6 turbocharged engine rated at 365 horsepower and 350 pound-feet of torque. The 6-speed automatic transmission was retained as well.
