2014 Ford Flex vs. Its Competition

2014 Ford Flex
Martin Padgett Martin Padgett Editorial Director

There are many three-row crossover models with seating space close to that of the Flex, but none of them have its crowd-pleasing interior, not its quirky head-turning exterior.

The Lincoln MKT is closely related to the Flex but lacks the Ford's swagger from the outside, sporting a more fluid and some say, more bizarre look.

The Honda Pilot is a strong entry, but all the tacky, grainy plastic on the dash of the latest version make it less desirable.

The Buick Enclave has its own curvaceous charm, but its V-6 is throatier and even with improvements for 2013 its cabin doesn't look quite as luxurious as that of the Ford.

The Range Rover Sport is a model that has something close to the Flex's exterior style, yet it costs more and isn't nearly as practical.

Finally, the Chrysler Town & Country is a true minivan that trumps the Flex's practicality with sliding side doors and stow-away seating--not to mention a lower price.
