2013 Ford Flex vs. 2013 Buick Enclave


2013 Ford Flex

The upcoming 2013 Ford Flex for Willow Brooks residents provides a unique crossover vehicle that offers versatility and power. When compared to the Buick Enclave, a vehicle that presents similar capability, The Ford Flex offers more options.  Right off the bat, the Flex is equipped with a 3.5L V6 engine that offers 285-hp and 255 lb-ft of torque. It’s powered by a 6-speed automatic transmission and 17 mpg in the city and up to 23 mpg on the highway. Plus, it offers all-wheel drive. We at Terry's Ford take pride in providing in-depth details on all our vehicles, including the 2013 Ford Flex.


  • Capacity – The Flex can seat up to 7 people in a nice 2 + 3 + 2 configuration. It offers 80.3 cubic feet of maximum cargo space with the second and third row seats folded away. Here's where the 2013 Buick Enclave may have a bit of advantage. However, the curb weight of the Flex is 4,638 pounds compared to the Enclaves 4,800 pounds. The lighter frame allows for quicker acceleration. This car can go from 0 to 60 mph in 7 seconds compared to the Enclave's under nine seconds.

  • Power and Performance – There's also a twin-turbo Ecoboost model in the Flex that offers a whopping 355-hp that you won't find in the Enclave. The Enclave is a larger vehicle that can be challenging to maneuver as opposed to the Flex that can make a much tighter turn. The all-wheel drive comes with stability control and curve control to keep the car from flipping over at higher speeds.

  • Safety – On top of that, you'll find incredible safety features in this wagon that help both passengers and drivers avoid a collision. A blind post monitoring system with cross traffic alert comes in handy as you're cruising through city highways. This helps you avoid changing lanes when a rogue driver comes up along the side of you completely without your knowledge. Additionally, the Flex is equipped with radar-based cruise control with collision warning and brake support. If you're getting too close to a car or truck when you're hill climbing, you'll be immediately alerted.
