2010 Ford Flex EcoBoost

I concur. The Ecoboost V-6 is amazingly responsive in any gear and at nearly any speed, making this Flex equally adept at scooting around town and performing quick passing maneuvers on the highway. It's also quiet - turbo-whine is minimal - and refined - shifts are smooth and well-timed.

Although I'm not usually enamored with SUVs as a genre, I find the Flex such an easy vehicle to live with. Its squat, upright proportions make ingress and egress a breeze and the low, flat, rear load floor is ideal for bringing whatever you need with you. The vertical rear and side windows allow for a mostly unencumbered view of the world outside and the interior is attractively finished and comfortable. As a total package, it's very well-thought out and extremely easy to use day to day despite its large footprint. Add the Ecoboost and the Flex becomes even more user friendly. The Ecoboost V-6's abundance of easy acceleration makes an already great package even more desirable.
