The 2010 Ford Flex
In 2010, the Ford Flex began to offer the automaker’s 3.5L EcoBoost V6 engine on SEL and Limited trims.

The base 3.5L V6 engine, which provides 262 hp and 248 lb-ft of torque, is mated to a six-speed automatic transmission. With this powertrain, the vehicle earns EPA fuel economy estimates of 17 mpg in the city and 24 mpg on the highway.
The 2010 Ford Flex has seating for up to seven passengers, but if you opt for captain’s chairs, the vehicle’s capacity drops to six. It comes in three different trim levels—SE, SEL, and Limited—and the 2010 Ford Flex is loaded with standard features, which include:
- Keyless entry plus exterior access code pad
- Automatic climate control
- 17-inch alloy wheels
- A six-speaker stereo
- A trip computer
The 2011 Ford Flex
Although the 2011 Ford Flex did not undergo many changes for this model year, the new Titanium cosmetic upgrade package made its debut. In addition to everything offered on the Limited trim, the Titanium package also provides 20-inch chrome wheels, microfiber suede seat inserts, distinctive interior and exterior design touches, and perforated leather trim around the steering wheel. Even if you do not opt for the Titanium package, the interior of this popular model is still stunning.
What is most impressive about the interior of the 2011 Ford Flex is all of the high-quality soft-touch materials found throughout the cabin. The interior is also quite spacious, and adults will feel comfortable sitting in the third row. This model also offers plenty of room for cargo, since there is 83 cubic feet of cargo space when the rear seats are folded down.
The 2012 Ford Flex
When searching for the right family vehicle, safety is probably at the top of the list when it comes to features. The 2012 Ford Flex definitely delivers with its ample safety features and impressive performance in government testing. The Ford Flex makes stability and traction control, rear parking sensors, front side airbags, side curtain airbags, and anti-lock disc brakes all standard. Drivers also have the option of choosing a rearview camera for easy parking. This edition of the Ford Flex also received the highest rating possible of “Good” in the Insurance Institute for Highway Safety (IIHS) frontal-offset, side, and roof strength tests.
Fuel economy figures are also noteworthy on this stylish model. With its standard 3.5L V6 engine, the estimated Ford Flex mpg figures are 17/24/19 (city/highway/combined) for front-wheel-drive models.
On the Limited and Titanium trims, drivers can enjoy the power and performance of the 3.5L V6 EcoBoost engine. With this powertrain choice, a six-speed automatic transmission with paddle shifters and all-wheel-drive are both standard. Although this engine delivers 355 hp and 350 lb-ft of torque, fuel economy estimates are still noteworthy at 16/21/18 mpg.
