Two Engines Both with Impressive Fuel Economy

To cover different needs for different drivers, there are two engines offered on the 2016 Ford Flex. The first comes standard with front wheel drive, but AWD is also an option. This 3.5L V6 produces a whopping 287 hp and 254 lb-ft of torque. On the FWD configuration the EPA estimates the fuel economy at 19 mpg combined (16 city/23 highway) while if you choose the AWD version, the mpg is rated at 18 combined (16 city/22 highway).

The other option is a turbocharged EcoBoost 3.5L V6 and is available on the upgraded Limited trim level. With this engine under your hood, you are getting up to a remarkable and beefy 365 hp and 350 lb-ft of torque. AWD is standard with this powerful engine and the EPA rating is unchanged from the AWD version of the first engine at 18 mpg combined (16 city/22 highway).

Performance

Getting behind the wheel of the 2016 Ford Flex and stretching out onto the highway, you’ll notice fast acceleration, stiff and responsive handling, and thanks to its boxy shape, an undeniable sturdiness whether you’re zipping down the highway or going over bumps or rougher roads.

The 2016 Ford Flex also has impressive towing capability and, when properly equipped, can tow up to 4,500 lbs with either of the two engine or their wheel configurations.
