Generation Overview

The 2016 Ford Flex isn’t a minivan, but it isn’t your average SUV, either. The surprisingly boxy profile maximizes space and cargo capacity, making the 2016 Flex exceptionally roomy and versatile. Unlike most other SUVs, the 2016 Flex remains relatively low to the ground for a more car-like driving experience. The Ford Flex was only offered for a single generation with a significant exterior and interior refresh in 2013, but the overall design remains as fresh and quirky as ever, especially when dressed up with the optional contrasting-color roof feature in Oxford White, Ingot Silver or Shadow Black. Major updates for the 2016 model year include a standard rearview camera and the introduction of the user-friendly SYNC 3 interface.

The 2016 Ford Flex comes equipped with a 287-hp 3.5L V6 engine as standard equipment. While the 3.5L mill offers ample power for everyday driving, you’ll get more performance from the optional 3.5L EcoBoost V6 engine. This twin-turbocharged engine, available only on AWD-equipped models, belts out 365 hp and 350 lb-ft of torque. Both engines feed their power through a six-speed automatic transmission, but you’ll get steering wheel-mounted shifter paddles on EcoBoost-equipped models instead of the standard shifter buttons.

Trim levels for the 2016 Ford Flex consist of the base SE, mid-level SEL and top-tier Limited. The SE offers a healthy list of standard features, including keypad-based entry, cruise control, rear parking sensors and 17-inch alloy wheels. The SEL trim adds dual-zone automatic climate control with rear manual climate control, heated front seats, leather seating for the first and second rows, keyless entry with push button start and 18-inch alloy wheels, among other features. You’ll also get SYNC 3 and available SiriusXM satellite radio with the SEL trim.1

The Limited trim distinguishes itself with extra brightwork, upgraded xenon headlights and 19-inch alloy wheels. Other features include available navigation, LED tail lights and wood interior trim. The 2016 Ford Flex also offers an assortment of standalone options, from a panoramic sunroof to a refrigerated center console between the second-row seats and 20-inch alloy wheels.

Reviews for 2016 Ford Flex

Overall Rating

4.0 out of 5 (5 reviews)

great general purpose vehicle

Great ingress/egress ( I have a slight leg handicap, and the Flex is easier to enter/exit than a relative's smaller yet higher Ford Escape). It has a smooth ride and great acceleration - a family vacation over mountainous roads was no problem. There's a cavernous back seat and cargo area - collapse the 2nd & 3rd row seats and 8ft lumber is no problem. And there's no under-engine plate, so DIY oil changes should be easier.


  • Cargo Space: Room to haul stuff, incl 8ft cargo w/ the seats down.
  • Ride and Handling: Smooth ride, great acceleration.
  • Styling: nice square box. Closest thing available to a full-size station wagon.


  • Dashboard: The digitally-reported average MPG (24mpg for my mix of 70%hwy/30% city) is higher than the manually calculated MPG (20mpg). (Although on-line research shows this occurs on other vehicles, too.)
  • Braking: No problem with the regular pedal brakes. The issue is the parking brake - the push-on, push-off mechanism is a bit awkward, especially for someone with a slight handicap.
