2017 Ford Flex Redesign
According to official sources, the upcoming Ford Flex is due to receive a number of updates. Although it was previously announced to hit the dealerships during 2015, the most recent reports suggest that the 2017 Ford Flex will be delayed until January 2016. In any case, the new model won’t stray too far from the outgoing version. Expect to see a new blacked-out appearance package, a rearview camera as part of the standard equipment as well as a thoroughly upgraded infotainment system. Also, the new model will be available in several new exterior colors.
2017 Ford Flex Design Updates
The 2017 Ford Flex will continue to feature the unique boxy design that’s made it one of the most recognizable models on the North American roads. Although its sheet metal comes in a square-shaped form, it still boasts some soft edges and a generally elegant appearance. One of the styling cues that makes it so appealing is its front fascia that features a horizontal theme flanked by sleek headlights. If you add brushed aluminum liftgate clad and contrasting-color roof into the mix, this family-hauler becomes particularly attractive. As for the interior, it offers one of the most pleasant places to be when it comes to this segment. The instrument panel is simple and user-friendly, while the MyFord Touch system provides as many as three different displays. The cabin is generally richly appointed and well executed, offering loads of headroom and legroom.
2017 Flex Engine Specs
Just like its predecessor, the 2017 Ford Flex will be available with a choice of two V6 engines. The entry-level models will be powered by a 3.5-liter unit that generates 287 horsepower and 254 pound-feet of torque. Those who opt for the Limited trim models will get the EcoBoost 3.5-liter twin-turbocharged V6 that makes 365 hp and 350 lb-ft of torque. Both engines come matched to a six-speed automatic transmission, offered with either front-wheel drive (FWD) or all-wheel drive (AWD).
