2015 Ford Flex Overview
In the competitive crossover segment, it can be difficult to choose the right vehicle to fit your needs. The 2015 Ford Flex offers consumers the perfect combination of space, versatility, and features—wrapped up in a funky exterior design that can’t be ignored.
What’s New for the 2015 Ford Flex
The 2015 Ford Flex has not seen any major changes from the previous model.
2015 Ford Flex Exterior
Ford is bringing boxy back. The 2015 Ford Flex combines a boxy physique and a low stance to offer consumers a bit of quirkiness to their everyday mode of transportation. A modern, streamlined silhouette gives the Flex a touch of a futuristic design, while the boxy shape makes it as versatile as the crossover segment comes.
2015 Ford Flex Performance
Regardless of the trim level you choose, a 3.5-liter V6 engine powers the 2015 Ford Flex, churning out a healthy 287 horsepower and 254 lb-ft of torque. The Flex Limited also has the option of a 3.5-liter V6 EcoBoost engine that produces a heftier 365 hp and 350 lb-ft of torque and is paired exclusively with all-wheel drive and a six-speed automatic transmission with steering-wheel-mounted paddle shifters. All Flex models come with standard front-wheel drive and a six-speed automatic, though the SEL and Limited trim levels offer an optional all-wheel drive.
2015 Ford Flex Efficiency
The front-wheel-drive model has an EPA-estimated fuel efficiency of 20 mpg combined with 18 city/25 highway and the all-wheel-drive models offer a slightly lower 19 mpg combined with 17 city/23 highway.
2015 Ford Flex Interior
The 2015 Flex offers superior comfort in its cabin through the use of soft-touch materials and an attractive design. Because of its quirky design, the Flex’s interior is spacious, affording plenty of room for seven passengers. The available center console offers plenty of extra storage and can even be equipped with a refrigerated compartment. Add this crossover’s technology, which includes an available MyFord system with a display screen, and you have a family-oriented vehicle that can’t be ignored.

Standard safety features on the 2015 Ford Flex include antilock disc brakes, front side airbags, full-length side curtain airbags, stability and traction control, integrated blind spot mirrors, and rear parking sensors.
