2017 Ford Flex vs. 2017 Toyota 4Runner Review

Comparison Review

Comfort
Rear passengers will be able to stretch out a lot more in the Ford Flex than in the Toyota 4Runner. The Ford Flex offers just a little more front head- and legroom than the Toyota 4Runner, making it a little more comfortable for the driver and front passenger.

Convenience
You'll be making about the same number of stops at the gas station with the Ford Flex as you will with the Toyota 4Runner, as they are both able to travel similar distances on a tank of gas.

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 Toyota 4Runner. Another consideration is the Destination Charge, which is a standard charge for transporting the vehicle to the dealer from where it's built. In this case, the Ford Flex will cost less to deliver to the dealership than the Toyota 4Runner.

Dimensions
The Ford Flex is about the same width as the Toyota 4Runner. 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 Toyota 4Runner.

Drivetrain
With its lower torque engine, the Ford Flex doesn't do as good a job transmitting power to its wheels as the Toyota 4Runner.

Handling
The Ford Flex has a larger turning radius than the Toyota 4Runner, making it slightly more difficult to maneuver in and out of tight spots.

Performance
In terms of towing capacity, the Toyota 4Runner is clearly the choice over the Ford Flex for pulling heavy loads. The Ford Flex has a little more horsepower than the Toyota 4Runner.

Utility
The Ford Flex offers greater seating capacity than the Toyota 4Runner, making it a better choice for those who find themselves chauffeuring others around. The Ford Flex has less cargo space than the Toyota 4Runner, 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 Toyota 4Runner.
