Ford Flex 0-60 times

Out of all performance specs, nothing but Ford Flex 0-60 times can better speak about the vehicle's temper. While horsepower and torque blow smoke in the eyes, Flex zero to sixty specs and average time to run a quarter mile are pretty straightforward metrics allowing to compare against its competitors.

Very often there is no chance of doing Flex 0-to-60 test personally and making conclusions from the experience of the other drivers is the last thing you want.

Conducting a trustworthy test drive requires following a strict methodology that is intended to eliminate the inconsistent circumstances like weather, tires, surface, engine temperature. It is always better to leave it for professionals.


Increase Horsepower

The cold air part is also important in making more power. Cold air is denser and contains more oxygen molecules than warm air does. So if you can get cooler air into your Ford Flex engine, your car will be able to mix more fuel with that air, making more power. Combine that with the more air through the larger and less restrictive filter and intake tube and you can see up to a 15-20 horsepower increase. K&N has even reported an estimated increase of 56.96 horsepower out of the 57-2571 intake for 2007-2009 Shelby GT500!

The 2019 Ford Flex is already alive, contrary to gossip or projections. This big car is unmistakably getting old. Since its introduction in the 2009 model year, it has continued without a complete overhaul. However, with that, we're all fine. We love the unique exterior design and its big, compact, and easy-to-configure interior for passengers and cargo.

Power is provided by one of two motors. The 3.5-liter V6 standard generates 287 horsepower and 254 pound-feet of torque and is competitive in the conventional three-row SUV market. The Flex's available turbocharged motor produces stout 365 hp and 350 lb-ft of torque if you want additional power.

The Flex comes with seven-passenger seating, or by folding down the seating, you can load plenty of cargo. The Flex also has a stout tow level of 4,500 pounds for its turbocharged motor. And all drivers have a fantastic view from the outside due to ride height and big windows.

The Flex isn't for you if you want the new vehicle style. Compared to rivals, the fuel economy falls—or instead, over the years, the competitors got advanced. The latest safety aids for drivers are available, but only at the most pricey trim edition. And although the Flex interior is practical, it lacks up-to-date design and materials, compared to modern cars.

Nevertheless, Flex is still a worthy investment for some buyers, mainly for whom the functionality is the main priority.

The Ford Flex, a large SUV-like wagon, can seat either six or seven passengers. It is offered three trim editions - SE, SEL, and Limited. A 3.5-liter V6 (287 horsepower, 254 pound-feet of torque) matched to a six-speed automatic transmission that sends power to the front wheels is a standard engine for the Flex. For the SEL and Limited trims, the all-wheel drive is accessible. You can opt for a turbocharged 3.5-liter V6 (365 hp and 350 lb-ft) with an all-wheel-drive as a regular feature for the Limited model.

The base SE trim is equipped with such standard options as 17-inch wheels, rear Parktronic, side mirrors with heating, a rear glass of privacy, a keypad with keyless entry, a rearview mirror with auto-dimming, a steering wheel wrapped in leather, a six-way power driver's seat (with manual recline), 60/40-split folding second-row seats with an auto-folding passenger side, 50/50-split folding third-row seats, a rearview camera, Bluetooth, a 4.2-inch central display screen, voice controls, and an audio system with six speakers, a CD player, and a USB port.

The SEL trim editions comes with 18-inch wheels, advanced brakes, foglights, entry and ignition without a key, remote start, automatic climate control with two zones and manual rear controls, wood-appearance interior trim, front seats with heating, power-adjustable front seats, and the Sync 3 infotainment system with an 8-inch touchscreen, satellite radio, a USB port, and smartphone connection through Apple CarPlay and Android Auto.

To the SEL trim edition, you can add the 202A option kit, which offers a power liftgate, blind-spot monitoring with an alert of rear cross-traffic, power-adjustable pedals, memory settings of driver seats, leather upholstery (vinyl for the third row), a 110-volt household power outlet and an advanced audio system with seven speakers.

The top of the Flex range, Limited trim is fitted with all of the above features, including 19-inch wheels, xenon headlights, LED taillights, power-folding mirrors, automatic wipers, extra metallic exterior trim, improved interior trim made in wood, ambient interior lighting, a navigation setup (it is optional on the SEL trim), and a Sony premium audio system with twelve speakers and HD radio. Also, for the Limited trim, the 301A kit is available. It provides an automatic parallel parking system, adaptive cruise control, warning of forward collision, a power-adjustable steering wheel with heating, front seats with ventilation, and power-folding third-row seats.

Depending on the trim, you can also add 20-inch wheels, roof rails, a tow kit, a panoramic sunroof, exterior and interior trim of black color, advanced leather upholstery, and inflatable outboard seat belts for the second row.

There are many options to improve your Flex, but we agree that SEL trim offers the perfect equipment and cost combination. Add the 202A kit for added protection, comfort, and luxury.
