The Ford Flex is Ford Motor Company’s only full-size crossover SUV. Built on what was to be the redesigned Ford Fairlane, the Flex is currently manufactured alongside the Explorer. It comes in four different models, all of which get 17/24 mpg (city/highway), though the Flex is powered by one of two engines depending on the specific model. Introduced in 2008 as a 2009 model, the Flex has seen consistent sales, with the 2013 Flex expected to enter the market in early 2012.
The cheapest model that Ford offers for the Flex is the SE, featuring a 3.5L V6 Duratec engine, a reverse sensing system to aid drivers in backing up, roll stability control, and a host of other features. Capable of 262 horsepower and 248 ft-lbs of torque, the SE costs $29,469 for a reason. Like all Flex models it can seat seven and has additional cargo options. The SEL also features the 3.5L V6 Duratec engine that the SE does, though it features cooler things such as the voice-activated Sync system and cool interior lighting. The SEL comes in at $32,100, and your local dealership can fill you in on all the minor differences between the models.
The Limited and the Titanium models both feature a more powerful 3.5L EcoBoost V6 twin-turbocharged direct-injection engine, capable of 355 horsepower and 350 ft-lbs of torque standard. They feature numerous features that the SE and the SEL don’t, especially their higher-end towing and hauling packages for people who need to move stuff. The Limited is priced at $35,765, while the Titanium comes in at $38,260. The Ford Flex has been around for a while now, so most auto transportation companies can handle any particular model. However, the Flex is a popular choice for modification, especially aftermarket lift kits and the like. Be sure to let your auto transportation company know if you have installed any lift kits or added any weight, as it could affect the price.
