2016 Ford Flex vs. 2017 GMC Acadia Review

Comparison Review

Comfort
Rear passengers will be able to stretch out a lot more in the Ford Flex than in the GMC Acadia. The Ford Flex offers just a little more front head- and legroom than the GMC Acadia, making it a little more comfortable for the driver and front passenger.

Convenience
The GMC Acadia 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). Whether you pick the Ford Flex or the GMC Acadia, it's going to cost you about the same. 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 Ford Flex and the GMC Acadia have similar Destination Charges.

Dimensions
The Ford Flex is about the same width as the GMC Acadia. For some people, bigger is better. If that's the case for you, then you'll be happier with the Ford Flex, which is slightly longer than the GMC Acadia.

Drivetrain
Due to its much higher torque, the Ford Flex does a much better job of transmitting its engine's horsepower to its wheels than the GMC Acadia.

Handling
The Ford Flex has a larger turning radius than the GMC Acadia, 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 GMC Acadia for pulling heavy loads. The Ford Flex has a little less horsepower than the GMC Acadia.

Utility
In terms of seating, you'll be able to fit about the same number of people in both the Ford Flex and the GMC Acadia. The Ford Flex has a roomier cargo area for putting your bags or other items than the GMC Acadia.

Warranty
The Ford Flex comes with essentially the same basic warranty as the GMC Acadia.
