Ford debuted the Flex 2009 at the Auto Show last year in New York and the firm has great expectation for this crossover: to sell about 100.000 models a year!
The threshold of 100,000 "absolutely" is possible for the Flex 2009, said Jim Farley, the group vice president of marketing and communications at Ford. "Thatâ€™s what weâ€™re looking at production wise," Farley told the reporters here at a press event.
The Flex model goes on sale in the summer. Fordâ€™s counting on brand new products such as the Flex, the Lincoln MKS 2009 sedan and the revamped Ford F-150 2009 pickup to help lift the sales of this year in the second half.
"Flex will find a lot of full-size SUV customers, and a lot of people who havenâ€™t bought Fords are going to buy it," said Farley. "So I think that will really help us in the third quarter."
Flexâ€™s powered by the award-winning V-6 3.5-liter engine of Ford and itâ€™s mated to a 6-speed fuel-efficient transmission. The powertrainâ€™s expected to produce more than 260 horsepower, 245 lb.-ft. torque and a good fuel economy.
