New 2016 Ford Flex at Ames Ford Lincoln for Ames, IA

The 2016 Ford Flex certainly is a stand out amongst other SUVs. The Flex lives in a world where the competition takes on soft contours however the Flex has a few sharp turns and right angles. The Flex is full of space and comes with a well-crafted interior. The Flex has been around since 2009 and for 2014 got a wonderful new design that included a new front end and a changed interior. New for the 2016 model year is a rear-view camera that comes standard along with a black-out appearance option and a newly designed infotainment system with some seriously new technology. The Flex really makes its boxy look more of a center stage item highlighting its square grille and long glossy headlights. The interior of the Flex remains one of the greatest that has currently been put together by Ford overall.

Under the Flex's Hood

There are two options for powertrain this year which include an entry-level V-6 3.5-liter that gets 287 horsepower and 254 lb.-ft. of torque. These setups utilize six-speed automatic transmission with smooth shifting capabilities. The turbocharged engine option makes 365 horsepower and gets great torque as well. The turbocharged vehicle gets steering wheel paddle shifters. The system is smart and takes into account steering angle and yaw as well as throttle.

Design of Ford Flex

The interior has some minor changes going into it with the use of softer materials as well as upper door trims. The panel that the instrument cluster is on also sits low and has a neat analog clock right on the dash. The MyFord interface screen makes its appearance on the center stack area and it takes advantage of the touch controls to help with audio and climate control. The Ford Flex seems to be a popular pick for families as it is very spacious and comfortable. It also has the ability to be very luxurious if you would like it to be. The Flex has wide chairs in its first and second rows that use very comfortable materials. The third row is also roomy for it being the third row and people can fit back there with relative ease. The Flex also boasts a quieter interior than it has in the past. More sound dampening linings and extra materials have been added to help quiet the cabin and it most definitely works very well. Fit and finish look better than ever, too. Ford has done a good job in placing soft-touch materials up where the driver and front passenger most often put their hands, while upholstery and materials feel luxury-grade. Both rows of back seats can be power folded over allowing for a great deal of space.

The Flex offers a long list of safety technologies, and it's one of the safer family vehicles on the market. The Flex fields "good" crash-test scores from the IIHS in most tests which means the Flex can again be rated a Top Safety Pick. Among its standard safety features, the Flex has six airbags, anti-lock brakes; and traction and stability control with anti-roll control. All Flexes also include Curve Control and torque vectoring—both are software upgrades to the stability control system that help the Flex corner better. Inflatable seat belts were new to the Flex in 2013, and adaptive cruise control (with forward collision alert) and a blind-spot monitoring system were also made available.
