2017 Ford Flex

The prestigious Ford Flex line of Sports Utility Vehicles has always been one of preeminent trend-setters of its vehicle class ever since its momentous debut in mid-2008. The Flex's seven subsequent iterations have all built on the sterling precedent of the original, elevating it above the subpar example of its competing peers and securing its role as a mainstay in Ford's uncontested roster of exquisitely-engineered automobiles.

As the very latest incarnation of this long line of prestigious SUVs, the 2017 Ford Flex is likely to comprehensively surpass its immediate predecessor in the areas of powertrain proficiency, exterior finesse, and interior comfort. Residents of Schaumburg and Arlington Heights, one and all, are invited to witness firsthand what the 2017 Ford Flex will have to offer them come later this year, as well as have the opportunity to test-drive this year's previous model in the form of the 2016 edition.

What Does The 2017 Ford Flex Offer in The way of Changes?

2017 Ford Flex Limited - Arlington Heights FordAmong the most prominent of additions predicted to be included in the this year's all-new rendition, the 2017 Ford Flex is rumored to feature improved powertrain options primed to offer better performance and improved fuel efficiency. We speculate that these powertrains would consist of a standard 3.5L V6 capable of producing an estimated 287 horsepower and 254 lb-ft of torque. Top-tier trims are likely to be fitted with a more powerful engine. The final specs of this supposed high power upgrade have not yet been disclosed to the public, of course; however, we have gleaned reports that this engine's output will be boosted by twin-turbochargers that produce a speculated initial estimate of 365 horsepower and 350 lb-ft of torque.

In terms of fuel economy, the 3.5L is expected to produce a 18/25 miles per gallon between city and highway, while the upgrade's fuel economy estimate is currently projected to sit around the area of 16/23 miles per gallon between city and highway. As far as exterior changes go, the 2017 Flex is predicted to offer as many as two new color palettes for owners to choose from. Besides that, this year's chassis will be near-identical to that of its predecessor, with a few minor tweaks and iteration improvements.

What Do The 2017 Flex and The 2016 Model Have in Common?

The 2017 Ford Flex would not exist without the precedent of the 2016 model. As such, it's not a surprise that the 2017 edition would be engineered to retain a portion if not a majority of the 2016's most prized specs and features. For the most part, the 2017 will retain the iconic shape and size of its preceding models. The Flex remains at least several inches longer in overall body length compared to its segment competition. Likely to return in the 2017, perhaps accompanied by a complementary dress-up option, is an optional $1,495 appearance package that adds black exterior accents that include a black roof and shadow-finished 20-inch alloy wheels. As for the interior, it's possible that Ford will offer new accents in the form of new hue and material options. The 2017 Ford Flex remains the same great SUV-class vehicle motorists have come to know and love, only now with the added bonus of experience married with technical reiteration!
