All of them will be surprised with 2016 year model. It will be refreshed, but Flex will keep its boxy look and three-row seat layout.

Premiere of the 2016 Ford Flex is expected soon, probably in next few months. We know some details about it, while many other are still unknown. It is certain that Flex gets a grille with new dimensions, probably larger. Angular headlights and taillight are also refreshed. Flex keeps it classic look, but adds few more lines that will make it more attractive. Cabin’s layout it made for seven passengers placed in three rows of seats. There is enough space for legs and head, and even though, there is plenty cargo room at the back of the SUV. Infotainment system is about to be upgraded with latest features. It will probably get MyFord infotainment system, with all its equipment. Overall, styling is refreshed, which could bring more buyers. Among other features, we highlight fog lights and bigger wheels.

Other drivetrain is turbocharged 3.5-l V6 EcoBoost with direct injection. With this one under its hood, 2016 Ford Flex can produce up to 365 hp and 350 lb-ft of torque.
