2014 Flex

2014 Ford Flex

Pros: Robust acceleration with available EcoBoost engine; Impressive passenger and cargo room, especially in the 3rd row, fun clubby cabin

Cons: Middling fuel economy; polarizing styling; prices get steep on higher-end models; problematic MyFord Touch media interface system

CG Says: A spacious interior and generous cargo hold are some of this crossover SUV’s most-notable features. We also like Flex’s refined nature and good handling. Downsides include the complications of the MyFord Touch digital interface control system and that some desirable features are only offered on the most expensive models. While Flex’s boxy styling may not appeal to everyone, this large, comfortable people mover deserves consideration.
