Although it was expected that next generation of this crossover will come a little bit earlier, latest reports say that it will come next year as 2018 Ford Flex. As you may know, idea of this vehicle started in early 2000’s. There were few concept cars presented, and production model finally came in 2008. Original model is still in production. Since it was accepted very well, company works on next-generation model, which is expected to continue in the same manner, but with many improvements. We are expecting to see new platform, new styling, new interior, engines and other.
2018 Ford Flex redesign
As we already mentioned, next generation of this crossover is expected to come next year, as 2018 Ford Flex. It is expected that new model will come with plenty of changes and novelties. Improvements are expected in all aspects. Just like current model, this one will also be related to Ford Expedition and Lincoln MKT. These two models are also planned to come redesigned soon. All these crossovers will get new platform, which will provide many improvements. We will see 2018 Ford Flex significantly lighter that current model, which will provide improvements in economy and overall performances. When it is about visual appearance, we will see new look, which is expected to keep the same boxy and bold manner as current model. We will see pretty much the same shaper, but with many modern details.
2018 Ford Flex interior
Just like original model, this one will also come with many unique details, and won’t be so strictly adapted to the company’s design language. When it is about interior, 2018 Flex will come with new cabin, which probably won’t feature some radical changes. We will see things like new dashboard, instrument panel etc. but without any bigger turnaround in terms of design.
2018 Ford Flex engine
When it is about engines, we expect changes for 2018 Ford Flex. Current model is available with two V6 units – 3.5 liter Duratec and 3.5 EcoBoost engine. EcoBoost engine is will carry over, and it will come with the pretty much same output of around 350 horses. On the other side, Duratec unit will be probably replaced with some smaller EcoBoost unit, probably with 2.7 liter or 2.3 liter engine.
2018 Ford Flex release date and price
The 2018 Ford Flex is expected to come somewhere next year. Base model is expected to go around 30.000 dollars.
