This year Ford decided not to change too much when it comes to SUVs, just to apply slight refreshments. But that will not be the case with new 2016 Ford Flex. Flex will have few significant design transformations. Designers want to combine traditional Flex look with modern cures and edges and they will create full-size crossover which will be more appealing than before. The 2016 Flex will be slightly redesigned with sharper edges and totally new front part. This decision is huge and we will have to wait to see is it going to be accepted or not by the public. Until its release we can only read about new Ford Flex 2016.
2016 Ford Flex reviews
Sharper angles will dominate on the exterior look, as well as the name written at front instead at the back. Perhaps, this full-size crossover is not as attractive as Ford and Ford, but it surely has its fans. It provides lots of space hence 2016 Ford Flex is ideal car for families. Inside the cabin won’t be big surprises, but we can say that engineers will do their best. 6.4 inch satellite system will be new and Sony audio system will be installed. Seven passengers can be placed in three rows and the floor is going to be a bit low comparing to previous model. This will create more space for the baggage.
Ford Flex 2016 specs
New Ford Flex 2016 is coming with couple of engine choices. Less powerful option is well-known 3.5 liter six-cylinder, producing 254 pound-feet of torque and 287 horsepower. Rear-wheel and front-wheel drive are up to driver to choose. Fuel consumption is decent (23 miles per gallon on highway and 18 mpg in the city) with not so stunning acceleration (100 km in 7.3 seconds). More powerful second choice is 3.5-liter six-cylinder twin-turbo EcoBoost which is able to reach 350 pound-feet of torque and 365 horsepower. Also, this option has better fuel efficiency and faster acceleration thus it will probably be more expensive. One of the special features is automatic start-stop system which only few SUVs have.
2016 Ford Flex release date and price
Price range of the new Ford Flex 2016 will be quite huge, depending on the engine. It is estimated that price of the basic version will revolve around $35,000 and it will go up to $45,000 for the top-notch model. Opposite to Ford Everest, the 2016 Flex will be released on the US market. Ford didn’t provide any information about exact date, though. Allegedly, new 2016 Ford Flex won’t hit the market before New Year but probably it will be exhibited at several major Auto Shows until then.
