The Ford Flex has a style all its own - a very bold one. There’s no mistaking its silhouette or unconventional stylish shape. Add the Appearance Package, available on the SEL and Limited models, and your Flex will have a black painted roof and exterior mirror caps, and 20-inch machined aluminum wheels with premium painted pockets. You can get the available two-tone roof with a wide selection of color combinations as well as nine exterior color choices, including Ruby Red Metallic and White Platinum Metallic, available on the SEL and Limited models. The distinctive grille features chrome (SE) or a sophisticated satin-aluminum (SEL and Limited) finish. The quasi dual exhaust with chrome tips, standard on all models, adds a touch of flair. Opt for the Limited, and you’ll have a Flex rich in stylish details: chrome door handles, silver lower grille stripes, “LIMITED” badge, 19-inch painted aluminum wheels, satin-aluminum FLEX hood letters and a satin-aluminum liftgate appliqué
The Flex does a masterful job of combining style with luxury. The Limited model, for example, features perforated leather-trimmed front seats and a color-keyed leatherwrapped steering wheel with wood inlay with audio and speed controls. The Limited interior is black with aluminum-insert front door-sill scuff plates. As for accents, you’ll find San Macassar wood appearance (SEL) and Yoho maple (Limited) in the instrument panel and door-trim panel. But maybe you want something different. The Appearance Package, available on the SEL and Limited models, features leather-trimmed seats with gray perforated-leather inserts, a leather-wrapped steering wheel with Meteorite Black inserts, unique instrument panel and door-trim appliqués plus floor mats with unique logo.

**Using 93-octane fuel
Available Intelligent All-Wheel Drive (AWD)
Available AWD continuously monitors wheel speed, throttle position and steering angle to determine the vehicle’s conditions and driver’s intent. The system then determines the optimal amount of front and rear torque for the given conditions to not only reduce wheelslip but to prevent the slip from occurring in the first place, which helps keep the vehicle sure-footed in a variety of conditions — slippery surfaces and whatever compromises traction. Available on the SEL and the Limited models. Standard on Limited models equipped with the available 3.5L V6 EcoBoost® engine.
AdvanceTrac® with RSC®
AdvanceTrac® with Roll Stability Control™ (RSC®) uses gyroscopic sensors to measure both vehicle roll and turning rates. Corner too quickly or swerve to avoid an object and RSC applies brake pressure and reduces engine power to help keep your vehicle under control.* And it all happens in the time it takes to blink an eye. Available trailer sway control works with RSC to determine if the trailer is swaying. If necessary, trailer sway control applies precise braking or adjusted engine torque to help bring both vehicle and trailer under control. Trailer sway control is included in the Class III Trailer Tow Package for SEL and Limited models.
*Remember that even advanced technology cannot overcome the laws of physics. It’s always possible to lose control of a vehicle due to inappropriate driver input for the conditions.

BLIS® with Cross-Traffic Alert
The available BLIS® (Blind Spot Information System) with cross-traffic alert* helps make driving more convenient. It uses radar to identify if a vehicle is detected in your blind spot and alerts you with an indicator light in the appropriate exterior mirror. Cross-traffic alert also uses radar to watch for traffic behind you as you’re slowly backing out of a parking spot or driveway. If cross-traffic sensors detect a vehicle approaching from up to 15 yards away, you will be audibly and visually alerted.
*Driver assist features are supplemental and do not replace the driver’s judgment. Included in the Driver Assist Package.
Inflatable Second-Row Safety Belts
The inflatable second-row outboard safety belts help distribute crash force energy across more of the torso than a traditional safety belt. This can help reduce the risk of injury while providing support to the head and neck. In the event of a frontal or side crash, inflatable belts hold the passenger in the appropriate seating position, helping to reduce risk of injury. These safety belts are also compatible with child safety seats.
Adaptive Cruise Control and Forward Collision Warning
Available adaptive cruise control* functions just like traditional cruise control—with one important difference. When the sensors detect traffic slowing ahead, your vehicle also slows down. And when traffic has cleared, your vehicle resumes the set speed.
Forward collision warning with brake support can alert you if it senses a potential collision with the car in front of you. A heads-up display, which simulates brake lights, flashes on the windshield and provides an audible warning. If you don’t react in time, the brakes will precharge and increase brake-assist sensitivity to provide full responsiveness when you do brake.
*Driver assist features are supplemental and do not replace the driver’s judgment.
When activated, rain-sensing wipers use an advanced optical sensor to detect the intensity of rain and/or snowfall to adjust wiper speed. They automatically go on when moisture is sensed. Rain-sensing wipers are one of the many standard amenities you’ll find in the Flex Limited model.
Intelligent Access with Push-Button Start
Simply have the Intelligent Access key in your pocket or purse near the driver’s door. (The system senses when the key is nearby.) Then touch the door handle to unlock the driver’s door or all the doors. Once inside, just press the brake pedal and then the start button. Shift into gear and go. Standard on the Flex Limited.
Easy Fuel® Capless Fuel Filler
The standard Easy Fuel® capless fuel filler has an integrated spring-loaded fuel door that lets you simply insert the fuel nozzle to fill up. No screw cap is required. And because the fuel door seals after the fuel nozzle is removed, fewer evaporative emissions are released into the environment.
Active Park Assist
Active park assist* is designed to help make parallel parking a breeze. While driving slowly near parking spots, simply activate this feature and it scans for available parking spots. Ultrasonic sensors measure the distance to the curb and other parked cars. Once a big enough spot is identified, you’re signaled to stop and accept the system’s assistance. All you do is control the shifting, accelerating and braking.
*Driver assist features are supplemental and do not replace the driver’s judgment.
MyKey® technology, standard in every Flex, lets you program individual keys so that two members of a household can share a car, yet have personalized settings take effect when they use their unique keys. It lets you designate a key to operate special features, such as restricting the vehicle’s top speed to 65, 70, 75 or 80 mph and limiting the entertainment system’s audio to 44 percent of maximum volume. It also provides a warning when the fuel tank reaches 75 miles to empty, allows the owner to select speed alert chimes at 45, 55 or 65 mph, and sets the Belt-Minder® to chime, while muting the audio system, until the safety belt is buckled.
