Ford released a mini-site for the 2009 Flex announcing that the crossover will be available on the market starting summer of this year. If you will go to http://www.fordvehicles.com/flex you will have the chance to learn more about the new crossover, build your dream car and have a little experience driving the car on-line.
The 2009 Ford Flex was unveiled last year at the New York Auto Show. It is powered by a 3.5-liter V-6 engine that delivers 260 horsepower, 245 lb.-ft. of torque and good fuel economy. The engine is mated to a fuel-efficient 6-speed transmission.
Flex’s available intelligent all-wheel-drive system is tuned to provide confident driving in all weather conditions. Intelligent AWD uses an active, on-demand electronic center coupler to allocate a precise amount of torque from front to rear – up to 100 percent to either axle. The system also can anticipate wheel slip before it happens.
