2017 Buick Enclave vs. 2016 Ford Flex Review

Comparison Review

Comfort
Passengers in the backseat will be able to stretch out a lot more in the Ford Flex than in the Buick Enclave, due to its greater head- and legroom. The Ford Flex offers just a little more front head- and legroom than the Buick Enclave, offering the driver and front passenger a bit more room and comfort.

Convenience
The Buick Enclave requires fewer stops at the gas station than the Ford Flex, making it more convenient to drive.

Cost
There are a lot of factors to consider when calculating the overall cost of a vehicle. The main consideration is Manufacturer's Suggested Retail Price (MSRP). The Buick Enclave is somewhat more expensive than the Ford Flex. Another consideration is the Destination Charge, which is a standard charge for transporting the vehicle to the dealer from where it's built. Both the Buick Enclave and the Ford Flex have similar Destination Charges.

Dimensions
Since the Buick Enclave is much wider than the Ford Flex, finding a wide enough spot in a parking lot may be a bit more challenging. When looking at overall length, the Buick Enclave takes up about the same amount of space in your garage as the Ford Flex.

Drivetrain
With somewhat higher torque, the Buick Enclave transmits power to its wheels a bit more effectively than the Ford Flex.

Handling
The Buick Enclave has the same turning radius as the Ford Flex, so they both maneuver the same in and out of tight spots.

Performance
If you've got something you need to pull, the Buick Enclave will do just as well as the Ford Flex, since they have about the same towing capacity. In terms of horsepower, it's a virtual tie between the Buick Enclave and the Ford Flex.

Utility
The Buick Enclave offers greater seating capacity than the Ford Flex, making it a better choice for those who find themselves chauffeuring others around. With the Buick Enclave, you'll be able to haul more equipment or luggage than the Ford Flex.

Warranty
You'll have greater peace of mind with the more generous basic warranty of the Buick Enclave than that of the Ford Flex.
