The Car Connection's Take
TCC Rating
8.8
8.8
TCC’s Bottom Line
Boring isn't in its vocabulary: the 2014 Ford Flex makes owning a family wagon a statement of style. The provocative Lincoln MKT has undeniable charm--a fantastic cabin, great infotainment features, and paddle-shifted EcoBoost power--but you have to buy into the look.
