Expert Quotes:

17 mpg city, 24 highway (2WD); 16/22 (AWD); 16/21 (AWD EcoBoost)

With EPA fuel economy ratings of 16 or 17 in the city and 21 to 24 on the highway, the 2011 Ford Flex isn't very fuel-efficient--even when compared to some hefty body-on-frame SUVs.

Those numbers do look a bit better, however, when you figure that this vehicle can carry six adults comfortably.

The available EcoBoost doesn't make the Flex any more economical or ecological compared to the base engine, but it does allow faster acceleration without the need to offer (or option up to) a thirstier V-8.


Fuel economy isn't the best in class on the EcoBoost models, but for a seven-person vehicle, the Flex does well enough.

How does the
TCC Rating work?
The TCC Rating is a clear numeric rating value based on a 10-point scale that reflects the overall opinion of our automotive experts on any vehicle and rolls up ratings we give each vehicle across sub-categories you care about like performance, safety, styling and more.

Our rating also has simple color-coded “Stop” (red), “Caution” (orange),
or “Go” (green) messages along with the numerical score so you can easily understand where we stand at a glance.

Our automotive experts then also collect and show you what other websites say about these different aspects of any vehicle. We do this leg work for you to simplify your research process.
