Ford Flex vs. the competition

2018 Ford Explorer

2018 Ford Explorer

Ford Flex vs. Ford Explorer

With nearly identical powertrains and cargo volume, the big difference between the Flex and the Explorer will be where you can go and how comfortable your passengers will be. The Flex features more street-oriented handling and stability thanks to its lower ride height and longer wheelbase. Third-row passengers will enjoy the Flex's roomier third-row seats. Read Edmunds' long-term road test of the Ford Explorer.

Compare Ford Flex & Ford Explorer features

Ford Flex vs. Honda Pilot

The Pilot has a crossover SUV design, unlike the Flex and its more wagonlike look. It also gets better gas mileage and can carry one more passenger. In general, the Pilot is newer and more up-to-date. Otherwise, both people haulers have similar layouts. The Flex's main advantage is its optional turbocharged V6. Read Edmunds' long-term road test of the Honda Pilot.

Compare Ford Flex & Honda Pilot features

Ford Flex vs. Chevrolet Traverse

For those who will be consistently transporting more than five people, the Traverse may make more sense. It can seat up to eight passengers. Also, the Traverse has more interior space for cargo and, like the Pilot, is a newer design. But the Traverse's V6 can't match up to the Flex's optional EcoBoost turbocharged V6.

More about the 2019 Ford Flex

If you need to transport up to seven passengers, a whole bunch of cargo or a mix of both, the 2019 Ford Flex is a smart choice for a three-row family hauler. A blend of large wagon and crossover, the Flex has a boxy shape that's both versatile and distinctive.

The standard feature highlights for the base SE trim include rear parking sensors, heated mirrors with integrated blind-spot sections, a keyless-entry keypad, air conditioner, cloth upholstery, 50/50-split folding third-row seats, a rearview camera, a 4.2-inch central display screen and Sync voice activation. We recommend stepping up to the SEL trim, which will get you 18-inch wheels, upgraded brakes, keyless entry and ignition, remote start, dual-zone automatic climate control with manual rear controls, heated front seats, a 10-way power-adjustable driver's seat, and the Sync 3 infotainment system with an 8-inch touchscreen, satellite radio, Apple CarPlay and Android Auto.

To that, we suggest adding the 202A option package, which includes a power liftgate, blind-spot monitoring with rear cross-traffic alert, power-adjustable pedals, leather upholstery, a 110-volt household power outlet and an upgraded audio system. The range-topping Limited trim includes all of the above plus 19-inch wheels, xenon headlights, power-folding mirrors, a navigation system and a premium audio system. The Limited trim is eligible for a more powerful turbocharged V6 as well as the 301A package that adds an automatic parallel parking system, adaptive cruise control, forward collision warning, a power-adjustable and heated steering wheel, ventilated front seats and power-folding third-row seats.

Additional options are dependent on trim and include all-wheel drive, 20-inch wheels, roof rails, a tow package, a panoramic sunroof, black exterior and interior trim, upgraded leather upholstery and inflatable second-row outboard seat belts.

The Flex is showing its age after eight years without a major redesign. It's particularly dated on the inside, with an out-of-vogue design and an abundance of hard plastics. It's unclear at this point if we'll see a redesigned Flex within the next year or two or if this generation will be the end of the line. We're hoping for a return since this alternative to the traditional large SUV or minivan was a staff favorite. Use all of Edmunds' tools to help you find the perfect Flex for you.
