While there were rumors that the 2015 Ford Flex might be offered as a completely redesigned model we think that this might not happen because refreshed model was offered in 2013th. New model still might be a logical move from Ford since this car newer had much success on the market and certainly would benefit from changes.
One of the problems is the boxy design that was make it or brake it decision for Ford. Many did not like the looks of this vehicle and mainly because of this sale results were significantly lower than expected. Among the improvements that we could be getting for 2015 model are different engine lineup which will now offer even more power and better fuel economy but also slightly different exterior design that still will remain boxy but with much more modern lines.
2015 Ford Flex Changes
On the outside many things will remain quite familiar to the previous year model but we do expect to see changes. Those changes will be true to the original design and looks of Flex. Retro style in combination with modern technology could bring this car much closer to buyers. At this moment spy photos of new Flex are not yet available but we do expect that those will surface pretty soon.
Another segment where the 2015 Ford Flex will offer improvements is the fuel economy and performances. At this moment there are 3.5 liter V6 unit that offers 285 hp in 2013th model and EcoBoost version of 3.5 liter V6 unit. We could see that the engine lineup of some vehicles that will be delivered by Ford will receive 2.7 liter EcoBoost unit that could be also offered here. It would bring more power than naturally aspirated 3.5 liter V6 but also lower fuel consumption.
Interior will not need many changes since we are already getting one with pretty modern technology setup. Currently available 4.2 inch touchscreen with MyFord Touch system could be improved and to offer bigger diagonal. It is also used to control vehicle systems and infotainment system in the car.
Redesigned 2015 Flex
Comparing prices to 2014th model we do not expect to see any major changes. Slightly higher price is possible to see but the starting price should be about $ 30.000 just like the previous model. This will go significantly higher with high end trim levels and with addition of extra features.
