Ford has introduced the 2011 Flex Titanium. It features unique styling, 20-inch wheels, and a sporty interior.

Ford has introduced a new range-topping version of the Flex crossover.

Dubbed the Titanium, the model features a unique exterior (available in Red Candy, White Platinum, Tuxedo Black and Ingot Silver) with a Tuxedo Black two-tone roof, tinted lights, a black chrome grille, and Flex badging on the hood. Other styling tweaks include shadowline trim, darkened mirror caps, a black chrome liftgate appliqué, and 20-inch polished aluminum wheels.

Inside, the cabin boasts charcoal leather seats (with gray Alcantara suede inserts), 'circle check' trim, faux metallic accents, illuminated scuff plates, and a perforated leather steering wheel.

Under the hood, two different engines are offered. The base 3.5-liter Duratec V6 produces 262 hp (195 kW / 266 PS) and 248 lb-ft (336 Nm) of torque, while the 3.5-liter EcoBoost V6 churns out 335 hp (250 kW / 340 PS) and 350 lb-ft (474 Nm) of torque. Regardless of what engine is selected, power flows to the front wheels (all-wheel drive is optional) through a six-speed automatic.

According to Flex Marketing Manager, Kate Pearce, "As we look at the reasons people have been buying Flex, there are some very consistent themes running through the research and the main one is style. Flex customers are attracted to the vehicle as one that reflects their personality and allows them to stand out from the crowd. With the Flex Titanium, we are responding to our customers with a vehicle that reflects the unique positioning of Flex in the marketplace."

On sale now, the Ford Flex Titanium is priced from $40,340.
