2009 Ford Flex Real Gas Mileage: Pros
YearBody/PowertrainComment
2010 4dr SUV 262-horsepower 3.5L V6
6-speed automatic FWD
1000 miles of ownership so far, 21-22 mpg in light suburb and highway driving, 24-25 mpg on 500 mile trip (fuel economy measured by calculating miles driven divided by gallons of fuel purchased).
2010 4dr SUV 262-horsepower 3.5L V6
6-speed automatic FWD
I am currently averaging 20 MPG overall with heavy highway use. For the size of vehicle I think that is rather reasonable.
2009 4dr SUV 262-horsepower 3.5L V6
6-speed automatic FWD
Very good for a 4500 lb vehicle.

Only driven around town, mileage 16.6, have never had it on the open road.
 

Ford Flex Gas Mileage (MPG)

Unlike other fuel economy surveys, TrueDelta's Real-World Gas Mileage Survey includes questions about how and where a car was driven. So you can get an idea of the Ford Flex's real-world MPG based on how and where you drive a car.
