Re: Ford shoots for 100,000 Flex sales a year
Ford could've made the Flex much better. Like, skipping the 3.5L and dropping in the 3.7L mazda tuned unit. Then it would be the most powerful in class until the turbo ecoboost engine debuts in a year or so. Interior is nice, but for the price I'll easily look to GM. I can get a 2wd Tahoe 5.3L V8 6 speed auto for an extra couple hundred bucks a year in fuel costs. With current incentives they're almost the same price for a mid model flex compared to a bare bones Tahoe LS. More room and utility for not much more $. GM is the one moving 100K vehicles a year...I can't see Ford moving that many Flex's.
