Ford Flex Engine Specs & Performance

Considering the size of the Ford Flex, it requires a considerable amount of power to get around. The Ford Flex comes standard with a 3.5L V6 engine that offers a decent output. However, drivers have the option of upgrading the engine for even more power on the road.

  • The standard 3.5L V6 is capable of delivering 287 horsepower and 254 lb-ft of torque.
  • The 3.5L EcoBoost® V6, the engine option, is turbocharged and delivers 365 horsepower and 350 lb-ft of torque.
  • Both engines come paired with the 6-speed SelectShift® automatic transmission with shifter button activation.

Entertainment & Technology Features

The spacious cabin of the 2019 Flex offers considerable comfort to the passengers, but it also includes some fun features to keep your passengers happy during lengthy road trips. The Flex also offers some additional upgrades that you can include to expand the entertainment and technology features.

The Ford Flex includes:

  • SYNC®, voice-activated dashboard-mounted display screen
  • AM/FM radio, CD/MP3 player, USB and auxiliary inputs for portable media players
  • Optional 6-month trial subscription of SiriusXM® Satellite Radio

Interior Space & Comfort

The Ford Flex was designed to carry seven passengers with enough room for cargo. The interior includes three rows of seating for passengers. The second row includes the 60/40 split bench and the third row features the 50/50 split bench, both of which can be adjusted to compensate for larger cargo materials or simply be folded down to expand the overall cargo area.

  • The second row features 40.5 inches of headroom and 44.3 inches of legroom.
  • Passengers riding in the third row get 38.7 inches of headroom and 33.3 inches of legroom.
