Since we have received upgraded Flex model for 2013th we are getting only small changes for the 2015 Ford Flex. These improvements are delivered mainly to keep it fresh and competitive which will in return boost sale results for this brand.
We do know that the fuel economy has become the most important factor when buying new vehicle on the U.S. market and because of that we will start with engines that are offered with this vehicle. Base model come with recently upgraded version of 3.5 liter V6 unit that offers quite healthy 285 hp and 255 lb-ft of torque. With this setup drivers will be able to achieve 18 mpg in city and 25 mpg on highway which is slightly better than with previous model.
More powerful option is the 3.5 liter EcoBoost unit that uses turbocharger and direct injection technology to improve performances and to lower fuel consumption. Optimal performances are achieved with precise and direct fuel injection to each cylinder. EcoBoost unit in this vehicle will deliver 355 hp and 350 lb-ft of torque that is quite comparable with V8 units in other cars. Both of these engines are paired with six speed SelectShift Automatic transmission that can be used in full automatic but also in manual shift mode.
2015 Ford Flex Changes
As we said interior and exterior will not receive dramatic changes. We are getting quite modern and nice looking interior with many tech features. What we need to point out is the MyFord Touch system that brings control for all systems in this vehicle. Display is of better quality making this system easier to use. There are two 4.2 inch displays instead of the instrument cluster in combination with eight inch screen located in the center stack.
There is no doubt that the 2015 Ford Flex comes as one of the best choices for drivers that are looking for a three row crossover. Great technology and unique design in combination with powerful and economical engines is something that most drivers will like to see.
On the outside we are getting one vehicle with improved looks and overall design that offers much higher level of visual harmony. On the back we have dual exhaust that in combination with large grille speaks about power and performances of this vehicle.
Release Date Of New Ford Flex
For those that want even more in the looks department there is a Appearance Package that brings 20 inch aluminum wheels, two tone roof and mirrors, unique door panels, leather seats and other improvements in the interior. With more colors and additional wheel styles this can be quite stunning vehicle.
At this moment release date for this vehicle has not been officially confirmed so we will have to wait little longer to get details about this. Since we are waiting for almost identical vehicle to be delivered we expect to see it announced during the summer of 2014th while the sales should start before the end of this year.
