2009 Ford Flex Long Term Road Test

2009 Ford Flex Limited: Maneuverable

June 08, 2009



Even though our seven-passenger Ford Flex is longer than the Infiniti FX50, it feels more maneuverable to me.

I know these aren't direct competitors but they happen to be the only two cars in our fleet right now that can carry a lot of stuff in the back.

At 201.8 inches long the Flex has 10.5 inches on the Infiniti which is just over 191 inches long. In a previous post I talked about how the Infiniti feels all boaty like its length is all in its nose. The Flex feels more normal.

Both vehicles are the same width at 75.9 inches but I have trouble sensing where I am in the lane when driving the Infiniti. In the Flex I feel right in the center of the lane and more in control.
