Ford has announced the continuation of its SUV based car which will be the 2017 Ford Flex vehicle. It is another great vehicle that comes under the Ford name which will match the expectations of the audience and bring us the needed comforts and additions inside of the vehicle. The cubic physique of the car will remain as before but the car is going to add some new elements making it a much more modern looking choice than it was before.
What is the newest and most appreciated change is the look of the Flex. Although the vehicle remains similar to the previous model, it is getting into the details that makes a whole lot of difference. O the untrained eye the vehicle would seem mostly unchanged but the added cues here and there make wonders for the car. Inside, the vehicle gains a much more modern setting that an SUV car demands. We have expected a change but we did not anticipated a solid one like this.
An EcoBoost advanced V-6 engine is going to be in the heart of the newest Flex car and will be an appropriate choice for powering the car. We assume that they are going to keep it to only once engine choice for now and will release the newest vehicle with a single engine choice.
No additional trims were announced so far as the vehicle is good enough with the power this type of engine provides it. Highly anticipating the release date of the future 2017 Ford Flex car, we have gathered enough information about the vehicle in the review based on the currently released date and the pictures, so enjoy getting to know the newest product coming from Ford.
2017 Ford Flex exterior
The exterior design of the newest 2017 Ford Flex is pretty amazing. Actually, Ford has broken away from their regular way of designing their vehicles with the latest model as they have planned to make it much more interesting and contemporary form before. The initial look is pretty much the same but with a lot of differences that help it achieve higher levels in the rankings.
What Ford wants to achieve with their model is to make the car more desirable for the buyers and have thus made it a bit more elegant than you would have expected it to be. The cosmetic changes are few but are apparent compared to before and the car retains its large and boxy shape which make it a better choice for even the new buyers of this brand that will emerge.
The front side of the car does make the greatest change compared to the previous look and it also concerns the grille part. The vehicle is going to adopt a massive and scaled chrome grille which will be resized from the previous one. Along the grille come the new headlight that are going the flank in and will also include LED additions for a better and more modern type of a design.
The taillights adopt the same cutting edge look as the front ones have and it makes for a perfect combination for the parts of this car. All in all, the 2017 Ford Flex is a perfect combination of traditional and modern and balances the two together pretty well. It will surely win them some new fans and make sure that the car ranks higher in sales in the future period.
2017 Ford Flex Interior spy photos
The improvements for the interior of the 2017 Ford Flex are mostly going to evolve around the cabin design. The Flex aims to provide the best level of quality and comfort and does so with the newly designed seats which are going to be covered with leather. This amounts to better driving quality as the driver has all the comfort he needs to make for better control of the vehicle.
As recently showcased on the released photos, the Flex will adopt some pretty nice and good looking features on its interior. The car is going to sport 3 rows of seats and it will be able to accommodate a total of 10 people at once. All of them will be able to seat in very nicely and there shouldn’t be a problem with spacing either.
We were also able to notice that the Flex is going to add a 4.2 inches touch screen to the top of the dashboard and it will also come with a 12-speaker Sony audio system for max amounts of pleasure. As you will undoubtedly notice, the vehicle goes a long way to make you feel comfortable on the inside and the infotainment system is one of its greatest advantages.
We assume that a lot more is going to be placed inside as the release date gets closer but for now we are witnessing a pretty nice setup altogether. The safety has also been an issue with this car and it appears that they are going to add some more airbags and other forms of safety equipment for the latest model.
The 2017 Ford Flex is going to utilize the power from one engine options. No additional trims are going to be available and the car carries to production with a 3.6 engine L V6 engine. The EcoBoost advanced choice is able to provide a total output of 287 HP and torque of 254 lb-ft for the car, making it a good choice. The power is transferred to the front wheel though an 6F six-speed automatic transmission, but there is also the offer of getting an all-wheel drive as well by your choice.
