Bradley shoppers searching for a spacious, powerful sport utility vehicle that delivers a safe, comfortable ride should look no further than the 2014 Ford Flex! Currently available at Terry’s Ford in Peotone, the new Ford Flex is a versatile family vehicle that is often matched against the new 2014 Kia Sorento. However, after an exhaustive comparison, our experts found that the Ford Flex is more capable and provides a higher cargo capacity than the new Kia Sorento.
The standard engines for the 2014 Ford Flex and the 2014 Kia Sorento both deliver exhilarating rides, but the new Ford Flex features a powertrain that produces a greater output.
Ford Flex Engine Specifications: Under the hood of the 2014 Ford Flex is a standard 3.5L V6 that produces 287 hp and 254 lb-ft of maximum torque for quick acceleration. When properly equipped, this engine allows the new Ford Flex to tow up to 2000 lbs. with ease.
Kia Sorento Engine Specifications: The standard engine that powers the 2014 Kia Sorento is a 2.4L 4-cylinder powertrain. It’s capable of 191 hp and 181 lb-ft of torque. It can only tow a total of 1650 lbs. when properly equipped.
For drivers who frequently transport large hauls, the 2014 Ford Flex is a better choice than the 2014 Kia Sorento. Behind the third-row seating of the new Ford Flex is 20 cubic feet of usable luggage volume. Not only that, but with the third-row seating folded down, that cargo capacity increases to 43.2 cubic feet.
The 2014 Kia Sorento only offers a total of 9 cubic feet of space behind its third-row seating and when that seating is folded down, the usable volume becomes 36.9 cubic feet. The Ford Flex delivers substantially more cargo space that the new Kia Sorento does without having to compromise passenger room.
