The famous American manufacturer works on the second generation of this attractive crossover. However, the new model should come somewhere in two years, which indicate that the 2018 Ford Flex will come pretty much without changes. This attractive crossover originally came in 2009. It is a pretty unique crossover, which features pretty unusual design, compared to the other models from the brand’s lineup. It comes with a recognizable boxy shape and features unique design language, significantly different that the other models from Ford. As we already mentioned, the second generation is about to come in few years, which indicate that the 2018 Flex shouldn’t feature bigger changes. It will come with the pretty much same characteristics in all aspects and expect its arrival somewhere late in the year.
2018 Ford Flex redesign and features
As we already mentioned, 2018 Ford Flex should continue without bigger changes. This popular crossover will come completely redesigned in about two years and we won’t see changes until then. So, we will see pretty much the same design as for the 2017 year model. During these eight years of production, it received a mid-cycle refresh about three years ago. The 2018 Ford Flex will feature the same design as that updated model. The interior design will also remain completely the same. When it comes to equipment, we will see three trim levels in the offer. Those are base SE, SEL, and Limited. For the next year, we could see some smaller reorganization of standard features, so each trim level could receive some new thing. However, do not expect anything special.
2018 Ford Flex engine
When it comes to powertrain, things will also remain the same until the redesign. This attractive crossover comes in two variants. There are two V6 engines in the offer. The base model comes with a little bit older 3.5-liter Duratec engine, which is good for about 262 horsepower and 248 pound-feet of torque. The optional engine features the same displacement, but it comes with a company’s new and so much praised EcoBoost technology. The result is a significant improvement in terms of efficiency, which means not only more power, but the better economy also. This engine has a max output of 355 horsepower and 350 pound-feet of torque.
2018 Ford Flex release date and price
The 2018 Ford Flex should come somewhere late in the year, with the base price around 38.000 dollars.
