2011 Ford Flex Overview
When looking for a vehicle that’s big enough to fit your family, friends and equipment, while looking sleek and providing excellent power, the 2011 Ford Flex is more than capable.
The 2011 Ford Flex is a boxy/retro, seven-passenger crossover wagon and is available in four trims – SE, SEL, Limited and all-new, high-end Titanium. All four models feature the standard 3.5-liter, 262-horsepower V-6, while a 3.5-liter, 355-horsepower EcoBoost™ V-6 is optional. The EcoBoost™ engine is designed to give you the power of a V-8 with the fuel-efficiency of a V-6. Speaking of fuel economy, the 2011 Flex receives 16-17 mpg in the city and 22-24 mpg on the highway and competes with the Mazda CX-9 and Hyundai Veracruz. The 2011 Flex can also go places that other crossovers can’t with available all-wheel drive.
The 2011 Flex might be short for “flexibility” with the many interior and exterior options. If you’re not feeling the body-colored roof, choose between a white or silver roof with an optional multi-panel Vista Roof, which consists of four skylights that cover all three rows of occupants. On the inside, the Flex has several seating configurations aimed at maximizing passenger and cargo space. Choose between two captain’s chairs or a bench for the second row and utilize the storage well that allows the rear bench to stow into the floor.
The available SYNC™ Communications System uses voice commands to access your music collection by genre, album, artist or song title and provides Bluetooth® connectivity. A voice activated navigation system with rear view camera; HD radio and SIRIUS Travel Link™ are optional. A 6-disc in-dash CD changer, 390-watt Sony audio system with 12 speakers, 10-way power, heated leather bucket driver seat, power liftgate and onboard refrigerator are all attractive options.
When it comes to safety, the Flex has you and your family covered. The MyKey™ feature comes standard and allows you to limit top speed, the volume of the car stereo, and add extra seat belt warnings. Front side-impact airbags, side curtain airbags, antilock brakes, AdvanceTrac® with Roll Stability Control™ (RSC®) and a rear backup sensor all come standard. The Blind Spot Information System (BLIS) and Cross Traffic Alert features help anticipate a collision and lessen the odds of an accident.
