2017 Ford FlexBlog Sep 29th, 2016
At Van Isle Ford, we work hard every day to match our customers with the perfect Ford vehicle, so we understand the challenge of finding a car to match your particular lifestyle. Unique SUVs are especially difficult to come by because most look and perform alike. This is not the case when it comes to the 2017 Ford Flex. Special in almost every way, we believe you’ll fall hard for the 2017 Ford Flex once you get to know more about its capabilities.
Redesigned for the New Year, the 2017 Ford Flex is all about performance. Available in three trim levels and both front and all-wheel drive, there are a couple choices when it comes to engines. The base trim level will most likely offer a 3.5-liter Ti-VCT V6 engine that can produce 287 horsepower 6500 rpm at and 254 lb.-ft. at 4000 rpm of torque when matched with Ford’s popular six-speed SelectShift automatic transmission. On higher trim-levels like the Flex Limited, you will be able to add a 3.5-liter EcoBoost V6 that generates 365 horsepower and 350 lb.-ft. of torque across a wide 1,500-5,500 rpm range. As far as handling and ride, you can look forward to electric power-assisted rack-and-pinion steering, AdvanceTrac with Roll Stability Control, independent front and rear suspension, gas-pressurized twin tube shocks, and optional 20-inch polished aluminum wheels. Depending on trim level, you can get up to 15.7 L/100km city and 11.2 L/100km highway in fuel efficiency. As with many of our best Ford products your powertrain is protected by a five-year/100,000 km warranty.
Because you will most likely be transporting friends and family in your 2017 Ford Flex, safety is incredibly important. You get a slew of the latest safety features including a front-passenger sensing system, dual-stage side-impact airbags, safety structure with high-strength steel, Safety Canopy System with rollover sensor, and optional SOS Post-Crash Alert System. Drivers will also enjoy the stopping power of the four-wheel disc with Anti-lock Braking System, brake assist, and electronic brake-force distribution.
Finally, the 2017 Ford Flex has made some improvements on the interior to raise the level of luxury and technology. Your passengers will appreciate the standard seating for seven, as well as the first-row bucket seats and second-row 60/40 split bench seat, and 50/50 split bench third-row seat. All your favorite music will be crystal clear thanks to the available Audio System by Sony with 12 premium speakers and rear subwoofer. As far as connectivity, the SYNC, and available SYNC 3 systems offer an easy-to-read colour touchscreen as well as full connectivity to your smartphone.
