The Car Connection's Take
TCC Rating
6.2
7.2
TCC’s Bottom Line
The 2017 Ford Flex is a spacious family hauler with a style all its own. It lacks the fuel economy of some of the competitors, but beauty doesn't come without effort. The 2017 Buick Enclave is a good-looking SUV for families and one of the better-aging GM cars in recent memory.
