Ford Flex Overview

The Flex combines SUV-like versatility with car-like driving dynamics. The base 3.5-liter V6 has been updated with more power, and now gets 18 mpg overall. Choosing the optional turbocharged V6 gives you quick acceleration at the sacrifice of just 1 mpg. The Flex rides comfortably and quietly, but handling is not particularly agile. The vast interior is very roomy and has decent fit and finish, but the driver's footwell is too narrow. Rear visibility is somewhat restricted. The MyFord Touch control interface is too complicated and distracting. Reliability of the turbocharged V6 is well below average, but the regular V6 version is average.
