2010 Ford Flex EcoBoost

Ford is currently looking for its own "it" car. The one mighty manufacturer has been lagging behind in sales as more consumers are opting to look the other way. Quite a bad news for Ford but this situation actually pushed them to be innovative and be smarter with their cars in order to turn some heads.
Enter the 2010 Ford Flex EcoBoost. A 3.5 liter engine configured to have the power of a V8. But before you dismiss the vehicle as another gas-guzzler, the car is actually configured to consume like a V6. Not as impressive as hybrids but better gas consumption because of the toned down fuel demand. The car is rated to last 22mpg on highway.
The body of Ford Flex EcoBoost is the definite sign that car manufacturer is trying to start something new. The car has the look of a wagon but can be mistaken as an SUV. But it's wide and imposing body can make anyone think that it resembles a mini-truck. The option for 20-inch tires can transform the car into a massive machine on the road.

Inside it is a classic Ford - everything is spacious and comes in bulk. The seats offer great legroom which is an impressive feature considering it's designed to hold seven passengers (driver included). The dashboard is relatively simple as it features analog meters with GPS and entertainment control in the middle.
Ford maybe facing one of its biggest financial challenges but that doesn't mean they can't be innovative. The 2010 Ford Flex EcoBoost is one car that might help the ailing company survive the economic challenges.
