The Car Connection's Take

TCC’s Bottom Line
Boring isn't in its vocabulary: the 2014 Ford Flex makes owning a family wagon a statement of style. The Chrysler Town & Country is a more expensive, more plush Caravan--and a great choice for shoppers looking for the best flexibility and features in minivans.
