Love this Flex Titanium and its white and black color scheme, especially the black F L E X letters on the leading edge of the hood and the blacked-out, three-bar horizontal grille. I don't even mind the twenty-inch polished-aluminum wheels, and I'm not usually a fan of such wheels. The whole look: white bottom, black cap greenhouse, works well for me. I think it looks quite cool.

I had the Flex in the teeth of a recent blizzard, and it was a superstar. It has been so cold that the freeway was still treacherously slippery two days after the bulk of the snow dump. Four-wheel-drive (which, by the way, doesn't work any better on ice, all of you SUV idiots in the ditch) was great on the east/west side roads that had drifting snow. And can we wave a little happy flag once again for the Ecoboost V-6? Super.
By the way, a very hip early-20s girlfriend of mine ran out into the frigid night when she saw the Flex in front of the house. She came back in to rave about the interior, and especially about the cupholder that was glowing blue in the dark.
