2017 Ford Flex engine options and performance
Recent years have seen a resurgence in the popularity of wagon-style vehicles. When Ford introduced the Flex in 2009, the vehicle set itself apart from other offerings in the wagon class. Larger than other competitors, the Flex offered more powerful engine options and better hauling and towing capabilities. The 2017 Ford Flex engine options and performance will continue to set the Flex apart from other models in the wagon class.
2017 Ford Flex Base Engine
Standard equipment on the 2017 Ford Flex will include a 3.5-liter V-6 engine. This engine will give drivers access to 287 horsepower and 254 pound-feet of torque. Fuel economy estimates on the base engine check in at 16 miles per gallon in the cities and 22 miles per gallon on the highways.
Drivers looking for even more power will want to choose the available turbocharged 3.5-liter EcoBoost V-6. This turbocharged engine increases the performance numbers on the Flex to 365 horsepower and 350 pound-feet of torque.
Even with the added power, the fuel economy estimates on the turbocharged engine remain the same. Both engines also deliver identical maximum towing ratings of 4,500 pounds.
