2014 Ford Flex vs. 2014 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 Nissan Murano offers just a little more front head- and legroom than the Ford Flex, offering the driver and front passenger a bit more room and comfort.

Convenience
The Nissan Murano 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 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
Since the Ford Flex is much wider than the Nissan Murano, finding a wide enough spot in a parking lot may be a bit more challenging. 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 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
In terms of towing capacity, the Nissan Murano is clearly the choice over the Ford Flex 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. With the Ford Flex, you'll be able to haul more equipment or luggage than the Nissan Murano.

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