2011 Ford Flex Titanium gets sportier

Article by Christian A., on August 29, 2010

The new 2011 Flex Titanium model, which arrives at showrooms later this summer, is a sportier alternative to the regular Flex model.

Flex Titanium doesn't carry a Sport model badge but it has several features that have appeared on the Fusion Sport and Edge Sport.

The headlamps and tail light lenses are smoked. A black chrome finish is applied to the front grille, fog lamp surrounds, and tailgate applique.

Furthermore, Ford removed the blue oval logo from the front grille and replaced it with "FLEX" spelled along the leading edge of the hood, reminiscent of the FoMoCo offerings from the 60s.

The vehicle will be offered in four colors (including white platinum and candy red metallic) but each gets a black roof finish, which contrasts with the body color or white roofs offered on other Flex models.

Being offered as standard are exclusive nickel-finish 20-inch wheels but consumers can opt for polished chrome rims for an additional extra $2300.

Aside from the distinctive seat trim (which pairs black leather with cream Alcantara inserts), the Flex Titanium has an interior that's nearly identical to the Flex Limited. Standard equipment includes a navigation system, a 12-speaker Sony audio system, and Ford's Sync connectivity interface.

Optional equipment includes second-row bucket seats, a DVD entertainment system, a refrigerated second-row center console, and a three-row moonroof. The Titanium is about $3,000 more expensive than a Flex Limited.

A Flex Titanium with the 3.5-liter V-6 and front-wheel drive has a price tag of $41,115 ($2495 over a comparable Limited FWD), while the all-wheel-drive is priced considerably more. For enhanced performance, consumers can opt for the all-wheel-drive Flex Titanium equipped with the 355hp EcoBoost twin-turbocharged 3.5-liter V-6. This is priced from $45,960.
