2017 Ford Flex For Sale In Nova Scotia
Sporty driving and everyday utility come together perfectly in the 2017 Ford Flex. The first thing you'll notice is the stylish and strong exterior design, which is made to set this crossover apart from the pack. On the inside, the attractive layout is complimented further by plenty of space on all three rows of seating. Plenty of upgrades are available for the three trims, plus features that boost performance to a level that fills drivers with confidence.
Two engine choices are included for the Flex. The first is a 3.5-litre V-6, which can be paired with front-wheel or all-wheel drive and a 6-speed automatic transmission. It's rated at a solid 287 horsepower and 254 lb.-ft. of torque, so you can load up the vehicle with people and gear to go just about anywhere.
If you want even more performance, but aren't looking to hurt fuel economy, you're in luck. The alternative engine is a 3.5-litre EcoBoost V-6, which combines twin turbos and direct injection for an explosive 365 horsepower and 350 lb.-ft. of torque. It works with a 6-speed automatic transmission as well, but paddle shifters mounted to the steering wheel are also included. All-wheel drive is the only option with this engine.
You'll love driving the Flex on any road, thanks to a chassis that's designed to power through turns with grace. AdvanceTrac with roll stability control is part of the standard setup, constantly monitoring turning and roll rates to prevent accidents. It combines with electric power assist steering, an independent front and rear suspension, plus four-wheel antilock disc brakes so you can always feel confident.
Even more comforting is knowing Ford has designed numerous systems to protect against serious accidents. Many go well beyond the standard offerings you'll find in other vehicles, making the Flex a true standout in the market. For example, the Safety Canopy system incorporates a rollover sensor and side-curtain airbags to guard against head and chest injuries in certain crashes. You can increase the protection further with optional rear outboard inflatable seat belts, which are designed to spread out impact forces to reduce the risk of injuries. A Personal Safety System is standard for all trim levels, combining several systems such as passenger sensors, seat belt retractors and more.
The driver and passengers' comfort is accommodated through several standard designs. For starters, bucket seats up front and a 60/40 split-folding bench on the second row are combined with ample legroom. There's also a 50/50 split third row. You can opt for a six-seat configuration, which places a centre console on the second row. Other conveniences available include refrigerated storage, heated/cooled front seats, dual-zone automatic temperature control and power-adjustable pedals.
Available tech features make the 2017 Ford Flex an even more enjoyable vehicle to take around the city, or out on the open road. The optional Sony audio system packs a serious punch with a 390-watt amplifier, plus excellent sound clarity. Navigation can be added, so you never have trouble finding wherever you need to go, while the Sync 3 system works with Android Auto and Apple CarPlay.
