The Car Connection's Take
TCC Rating
9.2
8.0
TCC’s Bottom Line
A singular look, along with top-shelf turbo power and features, earns the 2011 Ford Flex our top score among utility vehicles. With innovative features, families that need spaciousness and practicality should look at the 2010 Chrysler Town & Country—with plenty of entertainment and storage features, the only real downside is the isolated drive and some cheap-looking plastics on the inside.
