The Car Connection's Take
TCC Rating
9.2
8.2
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. The 2010 GMC Acadia strikes a good balance: more useful than full-size SUVs for passenger duty, yet a lot better-looking than a minivan.
