The first impression anyone would have on the Flex is that it do look a bit boxy and perhaps a bit clumsy but give it a spin and you will find that it is able to perform considerably well even when it is carrying a full load of passengers and perhaps towing a trailer behind. What does EcoBoost actually mean here, one might ask? It is actually Ford’s answer to increasing the efficiency of the engine while not compromising on fuel economy. In the 2010 Ford Taurus, the EcoBoost system is also implemented but they are not the same as each is customized for the purpose of each model. EcoBoost is where you get a V6 twin-turbocharged engine which gives you up to 355 horses. Think about that.
If you like, a V6 engine might not be quite the sort of advantage you want but some reviews have since compared this with the V8 fitted cars from Toyota and find that the EcoBoost do come off better in comparison. Where this is concerned, the suspension has been improved by leaps and bounds although the braking system could do with something better. Apart from that, you will also get the Park Assist System, the Electric Power Assist Steering as well. Honestly, the 3.5 liter EcoBoost engine does it job very well since as it gets you from zero to hundred in 8.4 seconds considering its size and bulkiness.
One of the best things about this car is the fact that despite its size and persona, it is pretty quick and handles very well. There really aren’t many cars out there which can do the same, so you do get a lot of space and cargo and where the power from the engines are chanelled onto the roads, it handles superbly well too.
