2011 Ford Flex Fuel Economy

6.0
Fuel Economy

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.

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

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.
