Love the Flex
By mowog on
2012 Ford Flex SEL 4dr Wagon (3.5L 6cyl 6A)
We chose the Flex for its interior space, exterior styling, and 4,500 pound towing capacity. We think the red with white roof combination looks stunning. We were concerned that the non-turbo engine would struggle pulling our 3,200 lb. camper in the mountains, but the standard engine has worked just fine -- including a tow through the Eisenhower tunnel at 11,138 feet. Mileage commonly runs around 26 mpg on the highway, and 16 mpg pulling the camper at 60 mph. We love this vehicle.
Favorite features include interior space, seat comfort (especially the sliding middle row buckets), towing capability, quiet cabin, ease of folding the third seats, and styling. One family member is 6' - 6" and has plenty of head and leg room.
Make the turbo engine available in lower trim levels. The need to buy the higher trim levels makes the turbo a very expensive option.
