The Car Connection's Take
TCC Rating
9.2
7.0
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. If you can get past the garish grille and overwrought look, the 2011 Honda Pilot is a fine family vehicle, with minivan-like interior space and decent performance.
