2017 Ford Flex vs. 2018 Buick Enclave Review

Comparison Review

Comfort
Rear passengers will be able to stretch out a lot more in the Ford Flex than in the Buick Enclave. As far as headroom and legroom go, there's not much difference between front seat comfort in the Ford Flex and the Buick Enclave.

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). Clearly, the Ford Flex is a better financial choice over the Buick Enclave, when considering MSRP. Another consideration is the Destination Charge, which is a standard charge for transporting the vehicle to the dealer from where it's built. The Ford Flex carries a much lower Destination Charge than the Buick Enclave.

Dimensions
Since the Ford Flex is much slimmer than the Buick Enclave, it'll be much easier to find a wide enough space in a crowded parking lot. When looking at overall length, the Ford Flex takes up about the same amount of space in your garage as the Buick Enclave.

Drivetrain
With its lower torque engine, the Ford Flex doesn't do as good a job transmitting power to its wheels as the Buick Enclave.

Handling
The Ford Flex has a larger turning radius than the Buick Enclave, making it slightly more difficult to maneuver in and out of tight spots.

Performance
When considering towing capacity, the Ford Flex is clearly the choice over the Buick Enclave for pulling heavy loads. The Ford Flex has a little less horsepower than the Buick Enclave.

Utility
In terms of seating, you'll be able to fit about the same number of people in both the Ford Flex and the Buick Enclave. The Ford Flex has less cargo space than the Buick Enclave, which is okay if you don't need to move a lot in one trip.

Warranty
The basic warranty of the Ford Flex is not as nearly as extensive as that of the Buick Enclave.
