TCC’s Bottom Line
With a few notable flaws in styling and features, the 2011 Acura MDX still impresses us with its friendly handling and gutsy power. A singular look, along with top-shelf turbo power and features, earns the 2011 Ford Flex our top score among utility vehicles. The swinging style sets an audacious mood—and the 2011 Lincoln MKT backs it up with turbo V-6 thrust.
