Performance meets control:
Flex has the power and control features to get you where you want to go, and the amenities to help make getting there easy. The available 3.5L EcoBoost® V6 delivers enough power and torque to haul a heavy load. Control features include standard AdvanceTrac® with RSC® (Roll Stability ControlTM)39 and available Intelligent all-wheel drive.39 To help alert you to objects behind your vehicle, a rear view camera10 is standard. The available Navigation System with SiriusXM Traffic and Travel Link® provides guidance to help get you where you need to go, plus offers tons of informational extras—like traffic info, gas prices, sports scores and more.34 SYNC® with MyFord® comes standard and SYNC 3 is available. And because every trip should be enjoyable, go ahead and crank up the available 390-watt Audio System from Sony.
Available Intelligent All-Wheel Drive (AWD):
Available Intelligent AWD continuously monitors wheel speed, throttle position and steering angle to determine the vehicle’s conditions and the driver’s intent. The system then determines the optimal amount of front and rear torque for the given conditions to not only reduce wheelslip but to prevent the slip from occurring in the first place, which helps keep the vehicle sure-footed in a variety of conditions — such as slippery surfaces. Available on the SEL and Limited. Standard on the Limited when equipped with the available 3.5L EcoBoost® V6 engine.
Available 3.5L EcoBoost® V6 Engine:
The 3.5L EcoBoost V6 has an EPA-estimated rating of 15 city/21 hwy/17 combined mpg. It generates 365 horsepower and 350 lb.-ft. of torque across a wide 1,500-5,500 rpm range. This engine is teamed up with the traction and handling of Intelligent all-wheel drive. Available on the Limited.
Available Adaptive Cruise Control and Collision Warning with Brake Support:
Available adaptive cruise control functions just like traditional cruise control—with one important difference. When the radar detects traffic slowing ahead, your vehicle also slows down. And when traffic has cleared, your vehicle resumes the set speed. Available collision warning with brake support can alert you if it senses a potential collision with the car in front of you. A heads-up display, which simulates brake lights, flashes on the windshield and provides an audible warning. If you don’t react in time, the brakes will precharge and increase brake-assist sensitivity to provide full responsiveness when you do brake.
Flex pushes convenience to the next level with a host of optional amenities. Take BLIS® (Blind Spot Information System) with cross-traffic alert. It can identify a vehicle entering your blind spot and alert you to its presence.10 Adaptive cruise control not only maintains your set speed, but will also slow the vehicle when it detects traffic slowing ahead.10 If parallel parking is not your strong suit, not to worry. With active park assist, Flex virtually parallel parks itself with a few simple steps on your part.10 Intelligent Access with pushbutton start allows you to unlock and start the vehicle while your key’s in your pocket. Even when it rains, Flex has you covered. When activated, rain-sensing wipers automatically clear your windshield of precipitation.
AdvanceTrac® with RSC® (Roll Stability ControlTM) 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. Available trailer sway control works with RSC to determine if the trailer is swaying. 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.
Available BLIS® with Cross-Traffic Alert:
Available BLIS® (Blind Spot Information System) with cross-traffic alert helps make driving more convenient. It uses radar to identify if a vehicle is detected in your blind spot and alerts you with an indicator light in the appropriate exterior mirror. Cross-traffic alert also uses radar to watch for traffic behind you as you’re slowly backing out of a parking spot or driveway. If cross-traffic sensors detect a vehicle approaching from up to 15 yards away, you will be audibly and visually alerted.10

With SiriusXM Traffic and Travel Link, you’ll get detailed traffic information, plus current and forecasted weather, gas station locations and prices, sports scores and schedules, and movie theater locations with show listings and times.
MyKey technology, standard in every Flex, lets you program individual keys so that two members of a household can share a car, yet have personalized settings take effect when they use their unique keys. It lets you designate a key to operate special features, such as restricting the vehicle’s top speed to 65, 70, 75 or 80 mph and limiting the entertainment system’s audio to 44 percent of maximum volume. It also provides a warning when the fuel tank reaches 75 miles to empty, allows the owner to select speed alert chimes at 45, 55 or 65 mph, and sets the Belt-Minder® to chime, while muting the audio system, until the safety belt is buckled.
Available Rain-Sensing Wipers:
When activated, the available rain-sensing wipers use an advanced optical sensor to detect the intensity of rain and/or snowfall to adjust wiper speed. They automatically go on when moisture is sensed.10 Rain-sensing wipers are one of the many standard amenities you’ll find in the Limited.
