2012 Ford Flex
2012 Ford Flex
With distinctive, love-it-or-hate-it styling and two capable V-6 engines, the Ford Flex is as adept at moving people and their belongings as a minivan and as satisfying to drive as a sport wagon. Originally introduced with a single powerplant, a competent but unremarkable 3.5-liter V-6, the Flex was one of the first recipients of Ford's EcoBoost engine. The direct-injected, turbocharged EcoBoost V-6 provides V-8-like acceleration and power while matching the fuel economy of the normally aspirated Flex. This year, however, the EcoBoost engine is only available with the top two Trim Levels; it is not available on the SE or the SEL. A six-speed automatic is the only transmission. All-wheel drive is optional on SEL, Limited, and Titanium Flexes with the normally aspirated 3.5-liter V-6. When you opt for EcoBoost, you get standard all-wheel drive, twenty-inch aluminum wheels, and leather-trimmed seats. As before, interior amenities abound, but you'll have to pay extra for many of them. Sync provides hands-free operation of Bluetooth-enabled phones and digital media players, and there is a rear-seat entertainment system to keep the kids occupied on long road trips. A rear console refrigerator holds up to seven twelve-ounce cans and cools them from room temperature to 41 degrees faster than your refrigerator at home could. In addition, you can order a host of accessories from the dealer, including interior cargo organizers, a roof-mounted cargo box, illuminated door sills, and sport pedals.
2012 Ford Flex Front Three Quarter
Here’s hoping you weren't betting against the flood of voice-activated in-dash infotainment: on the heels of the announcement that every 2013 Ford Fusion will have Sync, the automaker announced that all 2013 Ford Flex models will come with the system standard, too.
2012 Volkswagen Toureg Front View
Our vehicles may be getting collectively faster, but it would seem that the family man (or woman) who still has a taste for velocity has precious few choices. In a world where German car companies stuff 500-horsepower engines under the hoods of station wagons, it's a bit perplexing that there aren't any properly fast minivans.
The Bionic Cheetah: Infiniti FX50 (390 hp, 369 lb-ft)
We'd like to note that the nickname "bionic cheetah" was given to the Infiniti FX SUV not by Automobile Magazine, but by Infiniti, who claim this SUV was designed with a "bionic cheetah" in mind.
2013 Ford Flex Front 2
Yes, the 2013 Ford Flex is still a funky, boxy, three-row people mover – but the latest iteration of the cube-shaped crossover does receive a number of updates for the new model year.
2013 Ford Flex Front Three Quarter
It makes sense for Ford to show off a refresh for the 2013 Flex at the Los Angeles auto show, as almost one-fifth of all Flex models are sold in California. The refreshed Flex, which bows in L.A. before going on sale in spring 2012, benefits from a more powerful base engine, several new safety technologies, and a mild visual update.
2011 Lincoln MKT1
The Lincoln MKT has never been a hot seller, but in order to try and regain some sales momentum, Lincoln announced today that the 2012 MKT with EcoBoost will now be priced $3000 less than the 2011 model.

Recall Date
Ford Moor Company (Ford) is recalling certain model year 2011-2012 Ford Fusion vehicles without a 3.5L engine and Lincoln MKZ hybrid electric vehicles, 2011 Mercury Milan vehicles, 2011-2012 Ford Taurus, Ford Flex, Lincoln MKS, and Lincoln MKT vehicles equipped with a 3.5L GTDI engine and 2013 Ford Taurus, Ford Flex, Lincoln MKS, and Lincoln MKT vehicles equipped with any available engine. The affected vehicles have electric power steering assist systems that may shut down as a result of a steering motor sensor fault.
If the vehicle experiences a loss of power steering assist, extra steering effort will be required at lower speeds, increasing the risk of a vehicle crash.
Ford will notify owners, and dealers will check the Power Steering Control Module (PSCM) for Diagnostic Trouble Codes (DTC). If dealers find any loss of steering assist DTCs, the steering gear will be replaced, free of charge. If, no codes are found during the PSCM inspection, the PSCM software will be updated, free of charge. The recall began on July 21, 2015. Owners may contact Ford customer service at 1-866-436-7332. Ford's number for this recall is 15S18.
