2014 Ford Flex vs. 2014 Honda Pilot Review

Comparison Review


Comfort
Rear passengers will be able to stretch out a lot more in the Ford Flex than in the Honda Pilot. The Ford Flex will be popular with taller drivers and passengers in the front seat, due to its greater front head- and legroom than the Honda Pilot.

Convenience
With the Honda Pilot, you will definitely be making fewer stops at the gas station than with the Ford Flex, due to its tank size and fuel economy.

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). When looking only at MSRP, the Ford Flex will have less of an impact on your bank account than the Honda Pilot. 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 will cost more in terms of transportation costs than the Honda Pilot.

Dimensions
Since the Ford Flex is much slimmer than the Honda Pilot, it'll be much easier to find a wide enough space in a crowded parking lot. If you go with the Ford Flex, you may be circling the block looking for a space large enough to park more often than with the Honda Pilot.

Drivetrain
With similar torque, the Ford Flex and the Honda Pilot are about even in transmitting their respective horsepower to the wheels.

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

Performance
If you've got something you need to pull, the Ford Flex will do just as well as the Honda Pilot, since they have about the same towing capacity. The Ford Flex has a little more horsepower than the Honda Pilot.

Utility
The Ford Flex has less seating than the Honda Pilot, making the Honda Pilot the better choice, if you need to chauffeur many passengers. The Ford Flex has less cargo space than the Honda Pilot, which is okay if you don't need to move a lot in one trip.

Warranty
The Ford Flex comes with essentially the same basic warranty as the Honda Pilot.
