The Car Connection's Take
TCC Rating
6.2
6.0
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 styling may be polarizing, but the comfortable, spacious interior and muscular turbo V-6 still make the MKT an outside pick against luxury crossovers.
