2017 Ford Flex

Ford Flex is a three-row, seven-passenger utility vehicle that offers power, efficiency, technology and driver-assist features in a one-of-a-kind package. Flex is available in S, SE and Limited series trim levels.

The Flex Appearance Package, which debuted last year, carries over for 2017. It features black door handles, window sills, roof, liftgate appliqué and grille – along with standard 20-inch rims to provide a signature look. New exterior colors include White Gold and Blue Jeans.

SYNC® 3 is available for Flex for 2017. It features faster performance, conversational voice recognition, intuitive smartphone-like touch screen and easier-to-understand graphical interface. Other highlights include a standard rearview camera for all trim levels. Adaptive cruise control and collision warning with brake support, as well as Blind Spot Information System with cross-traffic alert are available to help drivers avoid potential accidents.

2017 Ford FlexIntelligent all-wheel drive continuously monitors vehicle and driver input, predicts traction, and automatically delivers the precise amount of engine torque needed to all four wheels – even before slippage occurs. The technology is available for Flex with 3.5-liter Ti-VCT V6 engine, and comes standard with the optional 3.5-liter EcoBoost® engine.

Available active park assist uses ultrasonic sensors to locate a parallel parking space; once a spot is identified, the system steers Flex into place with the driver controlling the gear shift, gas and brake pedals.

Ford Flex is built at Oakville Assembly in Ontario, Canada.

AdvanceTrac® with RSC® (Roll Stability Control™) uses gyroscopic sensors to measure both vehicle roll and turning rates. Corner too quickly or swerve to avoid an object and RSC applies brake pressure and reduces engine power to help keep your vehicle under control.39 And it all happens in the time it takes to blink an eye.

If necessary, trailer sway control applies precise braking or adjusted engine torque to help bring both vehicle and trailer under control. 39 Trailer sway control is included in the Class III Trailer Tow Package for SEL and Limited.
