Love my Flex

by Four time Ford Flex Owner from Mendota, IL | November 29, 2019

The Ford Flex has been my choice of vehicle since my first one the year they came out! I wish Ford was keeping them in their line up next year.

2018 Ford Flex Overview

The 2018 Ford Flex is a midsize SUV that seats up to seven passengers across three rows. It shares its platform with the Lincoln MKX.

Three trim levels are available: SE, SEL, and Limited.

Under the hood, there are two V-6 engine options. The base engine offered in the SE, SEL, and Limited models is a 287-hp, 3.5-liter V-6, while a 365-hp, twin-turbocharged 3.5-liter EcoBoost V-6 is available on Limited models. Both engines are offered with a six-speed automatic transmission, and paddle shifters are included with the EcoBoost V-6. Front-wheel drive is standard, with all-wheel drive optional; if you opt for the EcoBoost engine, it is all-wheel drive only.

With the base engine and front-wheel drive, the Flex delivers 16/23 mpg city/highway and upgrading to all-wheel drive drops the fuel economy rating to 16/22 mpg city/highway. The more powerful turbocharged V-6 EcoBoost engine (with all-wheel drive) gets 16/22 mpg.
