Though some may consider the Ford Flex a crossover, its really just a funky wagon. Not since the original Scion xB have those two words adequately described a vehicle. And while the xB got flabby and soulless, the larger yet tidy Flex is a credible effort for Ford plus all wheel drive is offered. Yet, unlike the trillions of Explorers littering the roads, the Flex doesnt shout its status as a winter car with hiked up ground clearance and knobby tires. When you just need extra traction on regular roads, the funky Flex will do just fine.
