The new 2014 Ford Flex is on the market. Multipurpose vehicle has arrived, and it is great. The 2014 Ford Flex is a unique vehicle. It shares some aspects with its SUV family, but with opting to focus on transporting people over paved surfaces, it also shares some aspects with the minivan tribe. But, still remains circumstantially different from both.
The exterior design is striking and edgy, while at the same time remaining timeless. It sits lower than the typical SUV and it does have an unconventional shape of a box, but it is meticulously detailed and modern, which gives this vehicle character. While it is peculiar it still has some subtle features, specifically the headlights. There is an arresting name of the model, “Flex”, embossed in chrome across the nose of the vehicle. Other substantial features may be the aluminum liftgate and the optional contrasting-color roof.
Much like the exterior, inside, the Flex is unquestionably unique. There is a certain premium feel, with the diamond-pattern leather seating, smooth dashboard and the engraved door inserts. The layout of the instrument panel is satisfactory, although there is an over abundance of small knobs and buttons. Ford included their top of the line MyFord Touch system, which turns the Flex into a bona fide spaceship.
The 2014 Ford Flex comes with two V6 engine choices, both of which are hooked to a 6-speed automatic transmission with available paddle-shifters. The standard engine is a 3.5-liter V6 rated at 287 horsepower and 254 lb-ft of torque. Estimated fuel economy for this engine is 18 miles per gallon city/25 mpg hwy (2-wheel drive) and 17 mpg city/23 mpg hwy (all-wheel drive). Optional is the top-of-the-line all-wheel-drive Limited model EcoBoost 3.5-liter V6, a twin-turbocharged rated at 365 hp and 350 lb-ft of torque. Fuel economy is estimated at just a little less, 16 mpg city/23 mpg hwy.
