New and used cars safety rating
The 2012 Ford Flex is styled to maximize interior cargo space with a more wagon-like physique. Offered in SE, SEL, Limited and Titanium Series trim levels, all 2012 Ford Flex utility vehicles include Ford MyKey, power windows, four 12-volt power outlets and Ford’s SYNC in-car connectivity system. Seating for up to 7 passengers is obtainable with the 2012 Ford Flex as part of a total 175.8 cubic feet of interior volume. Six airbags, AdvanceTrac with Roll Stability Control and anti-lock brakes are standard safety equipment on the 2012 Ford Flex. Limited and Titanium models also add a rear view camera system while the lower trim levels are equipped with a reverse sensing system. Standard power for the 2012 Ford Flex comes from a 262 horsepower 3.5 liter Duratec V-6 engine that can be transmitted with front-wheel or all-wheel drivetrains. With front-wheel drive only, the 2012 Flex fuel economy is rated at 17 miles city and 24 miles highway per gallon of gasoline. Optional on the 2012 Ford Flex SEL trim and higher, the EcoBoost 3.5 liter V-6 uses twin-turbochargers to generate 355 horsepower. Both engines are powered through a 6-speed automatic transmission. Added in 2011, the Ford Flex Titanium Series adds unique interior and exterior dress-up items including 20-inch wheels as well as a black chrome grille treatment.Read more Read less
After the Ford Flex got extensive updates and improvements for 2011, including new HD Radio capability, PowerFold/tumble third-row seats, and a new Titanium series, very little has changed about the Ford Flex. The rear wiper has been repositioned, more cupholders have been added for second-row occupants and a few option packages have been reconfigured. A new golden hue, Ginger Ale Metallic and Cinnamon are part of a revamped color palette.
Stylishly boxy; roomy interior; excellent seats; long list of comfort and tech options; strong performance from EcoBoost engine
The Ford Flex has a lot going for it in the market. For one, it looks like no other; especially on the outside, its chiseled, boxy design is part tall, boxy wagon, part lowered SUV. But practically, the Flex's forte is interior space. There's enough space to make six adults happy for a jaunt across town; and with the two rear rows of seats folded forward, there's enough cargo space to rival that available in minivans. Features and options are impressive, too; inside, the Flex can be equipped better than just about any other utility vehicle from a mainstream brand While performance from the base engine is adequate, many shoppers will find the EcoBoost engine to be worth the price premium, as it makes the Flex feel more lively, but not at the expense of fuel economy or comfort.
