2012 Ford Flex

Buyer's Guide

NEW FOR 2012:

- Roof rack side rails available with Vista Roof

- Rear windshield wiper is now centrally mounted

- SEL and Limited add standard single-CD/MP3 stereo

- Exterior colours: Ginger Ale Metallic, Ebony Black, Dark Blue Pearl, Cinnamon Metallic and Mineral Grey Metallic added

For 2012, changes to the Ford Flex are minor. Roof rails can now be ordered with the Vista Roof, the rear wiper moves to the middle of the glass, and the SEL and Limited revert to a single-CD stereo from a six-CD version.

The Flex is available with a 3.5-litre Duratec V6 engine, or with a 3.5-litre EcoBoost V6 with twin turbochargers and direct injection. Both use a six-speed automatic transmission.

The SE, SEL and Limited use the 3.5-litre V6; the SEL and Limited can be optioned to the EcoBoost. The Titanium uses the EcoBoost only. The SE, SEL and Limited come in front-wheel drive, while the SEL and Limited can be optioned with all-wheel drive. The Limited with EcoBoost and the Titanium are all-wheel drive only.

Features on the SE include 18-inch painted alloy wheels, air conditioning, body-colour door handles, fog lamps, automatic headlamps, black power mirrors, CD/MP3 stereo, six-way driver and two-way passenger manually-adjusted seats, fold-flat front passenger seat, second-row 60/40 split bench seat, third-row fold-into-floor 50/50 bench seat, MyKey, auxiliary rear climate control, tire pressure monitoring system, auto-dimming rearview mirror, power locks with keyless entry, floor mats, front-row centre console, second- and third-row reading lights, message centre with trip computer, outside temperature display, compass, overhead console, auto up/down driver’s window, tilt steering column, privacy glass, cruise control, reverse sensing system, SecuriCode invisible keypad, speed-sensitive intermittent wipers, and two-speed rear wiper.

The SEL adds 18-inch alloy wheels, dual-zone automatic climate control, chrome beltline moulding, chrome door handles, body-colour heated mirrors, Sirius satellite radio, ten-way driver and six-way passenger power-adjustable heated seats, and garage door opener.

The Limited models add 19-inch alloy wheels, automatic xenon headlamps, chrome heated mirrors with puddle lamps, LED taillights, satin aluminum liftgate appliqué, upgraded Sony CD/MP3 stereo, SYNC, colour-keyed wood and leather-wrapped steering wheel, ambient lighting, perforated leather front and second-row seats, vinyl third-row seat, second-row footrests, 110-volt power outlet, power-adjustable pedals, and power liftgate.

2012 Ford Flex

by Allstar on 01-12-2013
Wild to drive
This had some great features including when you put it in park the seat moves on its own to provide the driver with plenty of exit room! I was vary spacious in the back seats as well! though I did find the sides seemed to make me feel short but that was just the design guess. Over all though it was extremely easy to handle and a comfortable ride.

Ultimate Family Vehicle
Perfect for an expanding family. Lots of room and comfort, easily adjustable to accommodate children of various ages. Easy to park, good on country roads and seems to be handling snowy weather well. All the convenience of a mini van, better style and in a smaller size than the large SUV or trucks.

2012 Ford Flex

Trim: SEL
by Loving_the_Flex on 11-01-2012
Great family hauler
My wife was always taken with these cars--but me....not so much. However, after trying out several different vehicles (Sienna's, Caravans, Odyessey's and Mazda 5's I instantly lilkes this car. Since purchasing it I have actually grown to like it's styling.It also has great fit and finish inside the car. It has been a great car, but far to new to really gage reliability. My only complaint it fuel milage. in the city I get about 15 mpg 9 but I have a large hill to drive everyday. On the highway I average 22mpg, but have managed to get 24 when going 110km/h on a relativly flat road. Very please with the purchase.
