2013 Updates

Engine Updates

The 2013 Flex (available by late 2012) is powered by the same engines as in the previous year: a 3.5 liter V6 in either turbocharged or naturally aspirated forms. The normally aspirated 3.5 liter V6 has been upgraded for 2013. It produces 285hp, 23 more than last year, and 255 lb-ft of torque, a 7 lb-ft improvement. Fuel economy figures have improved 1mpg to 18mpg city and 25mpg highway. The turbocharged 3.5 liter V6 remains exactly the same for 2013.

All Flex models for 2013 have electric power steering, which results in a 4% improvement on emissions.

Exterior Updates

For 2012, Ford has updated the Flex front end to make it even more monolithic than it already used to be. The new front is highlighted by two chrome horizontal lines. The lower line is made up of three chrome, horizontal strips in the lower airdam with the foglights like brackets on each side. The larger line is the chrome grill, which is also three chrome strips, but the center strip is an imposing chrome bar that looks like a battering ram. Similar to the foglights, the headlights literally look like brackets on either side of this bar.

Interior Updates

The interior of the Flex also got some small upgrades for 2013. First, there is a new version of Ford's MyFord Touch system that is meant to make it easier to use. The system includes two 4.2in screens in the instrument cluster and an 8in screen on the center stack.
