New 2017 Ford Flex at Kayser Ford for Madison, WI

The Ford Flex is a time tested model and the 2017 is no exception, maintaining the classic design which has held-up so well. It comes with many updated optional features, like Sync 3 and Active Park Assist, that tweak an already impressive model. It seats up to seven passengers and has two engine options, which ensure the vehicle won't get bogged down even at maximum capacity. The Ford Flex comes in three different trim levels: SE, SEL, and Limited. With several optional and standard safety features, the 2017 Ford Flex is a sensible and distinctive wagon.

Under the Flex's Hood

Two engine options offer the Ford Flex a couple of ways to get around. A 3.5-liter V6 engine is standard for all 2017 Ford Flex models and offers 287 horsepower and up to 254 pound-feet of torque. This is coupled with a six speed automatic transmission and standard front-wheel drive. Some models do have all-wheel drive options available. The turbocharged 3.5-liter V6 is optional on the Limited trim and can generate 365 horsepower and 350 pound-feet of torque, that will get this large wagon moving. All-wheel drive is standard for this engine and it comes with steering-wheel-mounted shift paddles. The flex offers up to 4,500 pounds in towing capacity on either engine.

Design of Ford Flex

The Flex has a cavernous interior thanks to its large squared off shape and comfortably seats up to seven people. When fully occupied, the Flex provides up to 20 cubic feet of cargo space, while flipping the back row of seats down more than doubles the available stowing space for 43.2 cubic feet. If you find yourself transporting cargo instead of people, the Ford Flex is equipped for that too. When both back rows of seats are flipped down the cargo room really opens up to 83.2 cubic feet. Space isn't the only thing the Flex has going for it, however. Sync 3 is available on the 2017 Ford Flex and brings a lot of new conveniences to the vehicle. The intuitive graphical interface and touchscreen pair nicely with conversational voice recognition. A navigation system, ambient interior lighting, upgraded wood interior trim, and a 12-speaker Sony audio system are all standard features at the Limited trim level and help to make the interior feel even more homelike and comfortable. A panoramic sunroof is optional and provides a more open feel while a rear entertainment system option will keep passengers entertained.

How much can the Ford Flex tow?

The Ford Flex can tow up to 4,500 pounds.

Conclusions

The Ford Flex has many optional safety features that make this vehicle stand out. One notable feature is the inflatable seatbelt which are available in second-row seats at all trim levels. Optional on some models, is the forward collision warning system, which provides a more nuanced approached to automatic breaking. Unlike other braking systems, it charges the brakes ahead of time for maximum responsiveness but does not automatically brake. Rear cross-traffic alert and blind-spot monitoring are available at some trims and optional at others. Standard safety features include emergency telematics, rearview camera, MyKey system, stability and traction control, antilock brakes, rear parking sensors, and front side and full-length side curtain airbags.
