The Car Connection's Take
TCC Rating
8.8
8.4
TCC’s Bottom Line
The 2016 Ford Flex remains a singularly boxy and handsome SUV, with excellent interior room and safety scores. The 2016 Lincoln MKT has a polarizing style for a crossover wagon; combined with its comfortable, super-spacious interior and muscular powertrains, it's still an outside pick, especially against other luxury crossovers.
