2010 Chevy Traverse: ...or 2009 Ford Flex?

May 13, 2010

I got lucky and parked behind our 2009 Ford Flex's twin the other day and it got me thinking: Ford Flex or Chevy Traverse. I know we'd done this before when the Traverse originally came out, but I'd just spent a few hundred extremely comfortable miles behind the wheel of our Traverse and found it quite nice. But then again, I've also driven our Flex to Massachusetts, Phoenix, Sacramento, Vegas via Death Valley....you get the picture.

Here are the relevant specs:

Our 2009 flex cost us $37,658, seats *6* ( 2- 2- 2), has Sync, super-easy fold-flat seats and a refrigerator.

Our 2010 Traverse cost us $36,406, seats 7 (2-2-3), has a functional USB input and navigation, more power, heated AND cooled (!) seats and a manual mode on the shifter.

Which one you buying and why? And no cheating and voting for the big red truck that ruined this lucky photo op!

Me? I'm taking the hearse.... they had me at refrigerator.
