Ford Flex Titanium EcoBoost AWD: The Flex is perhaps the most creative expression of the modern crossover; especially in upscale Titanium trim. It is looks like nothing else on the road. With the 3.5 liter turbocharged, direct-injection EcoBoost engine, it is startlingly quick and fuel efficient. Because of its relatively low center of gravity, it handles more like a sport wagon than crossover. The interior is stretched minivan efficient and top of the line models carry all of the options and amenities expected in a luxury SUV.
Put it all together and the Flex is fun. It may not be the pinnacle of elegance, but you smile when you walk up to it. You smile when you drive it. You smile when six of your family and friends jump in and are smiling too.
