2015 Ford Flex vs. 2015 Nissan Murano Review

Comparison Review

Comfort
Rear passengers will be able to stretch out a lot more in the Ford Flex than in the Nissan Murano. 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 Nissan Murano.

Convenience
With the Nissan Murano, 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). Whether you pick the Ford Flex or the Nissan Murano, 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 Nissan Murano have similar Destination Charges.

Dimensions
The Ford Flex is about the same width as the Nissan Murano. 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 Nissan Murano.

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

Handling
The Ford Flex has a larger turning radius than the Nissan Murano, 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 Nissan Murano for pulling heavy loads. The Ford Flex has a little more horsepower than the Nissan Murano.

Utility
The Ford Flex offers greater seating capacity than the Nissan Murano, making it a better choice for those who find themselves chauffeuring others around. The Ford Flex has a roomier cargo area for putting your bags or other items than the Nissan Murano.

Warranty
The Ford Flex comes with essentially the same basic warranty as the Nissan Murano.
