10. The 2013 Ford Flex Is An Intriguing Alternative Family Hauler
The 2013 Ford Flex is not a personality-devoid minivan single-mindedly task-focused on getting the kids to school, soccer practice or the orthodontist. Nor is the Flex a gargantuan sport-utility vehicle designed to cross streams, blast through mud and tow a horse trailer. Instead, Ford has created a crossover vehicle that looks unique, offers a ride that is a cut above standard people hauler fare and is available in a lightning-quick EcoBoost model that barely sucks down more fuel than the standard-issue all-wheel drive model. The Ford Flex is a crossover for drivers who never thought they would get behind the wheel of this class of vehicle, which is quite the complement in a crowded segment.
