2012 Ford Flex
The 2012 Ford Flex is a fullsized SUV with an MSRP between $29,465 and $43,100. It serves as Ford Motor Company's entry into the fullsize crossover market. Since its inception in 2008, the Flex has combined features of an SUV and minivan. The vehicle is available in the U.S., Canada and the Middle East.
This vehicle has four models: the SE, SEL, the Limited and the Titanium. Each model has seven-passenger seating. Gas mileage is consistent across the line, with an average 17 mpg city/24 mpg highway. The Flex is powered by a 3.5L V6 engine that produces 262 horsepower and 248 pound-feet of torque. The Flex Limited and Titanium has the option of an EcoBoost engine, a turbocharged V6 with 355 hp and 350 pound-feet of torque. All-wheel drive and a six-speed automatic with paddle shifters are standard.
Safety features include stability and traction control, antilock disc brakes, rear parking sensors, front side airbags and side curtain airbags. The Insurance Institute for Highway Safety gave the Flex the highest possible rating of “Good” in the frontal-offset, side and roof strength tests. The 2012 Ford Flex has only had rollover tests thus far from the federal government.
As opposed to previous year models of the Ford Flex, the EcoBoost engine is no longer available with the SEL trim on the 2012 version. Ford has also moved the rear windscreen wiper for better coverage. An armrest with cupholders has been added to the second row of seating in the Limited and Titanium trims.
Other features that come standard with all trims of the 2012 Ford Flex include 17-inch alloy wheels, automatic headlights, foglights, rear privacy glass, rear parking sensors, cruise control, a six-way power driver seat, front seat manual lumbar adjustment, a leather-wrapped tilt-and-telescoping steering wheel, a 60/40 split second-row seat and a six-speaker sound system with a CD player and auxiliary audio jack.
