ALEXANDRIA, Ky., May 20, 2013 /PRNewswire-iReach/ -- The SUV class of the auto industry has gone through a fair amount of changes since its inception. There are a couple of examples on the market right now that still have a strong sense of the "utility" that makes the full-size SUV an attractive choice for buyers at Mike Castrucci of Alexandria. Comparing the 2013 Ford Flex vs. the 2013 Honda Pilot and buyers will see that they can still have capable people-hauler as well as a vehicle that has the ability to adapt to a wide range of tasks that could feasibly be asked of them.
The 2013 Ford Flex for sale at Mike Castrucci of Alexandria brings a heady mix of seating capacity, horsepower and towing ability to the game. Depending on how buyers choose seats in the 2013 Ford Flex near Cincinnati, there is the capacity for up to seven people. In a nod to how comfortable the rear passengers will be the Flex has a very easy to access third row that will still leave even taller passengers with plenty of leg room. The third row of the 2013 Honda Pilot sits a bit lower and may leave some passengers a bit cramped.
Since there is so much room for passengers and their luggage, with the Ford Flex showing up with 83 cubic-feet of cargo space, it may be the vehicle of choice for people looking to grab some friends and make an impromptu weekend getaway. Should that getaway involve some light-duty towing, the 2013 Ford Flex vs. the 2013 Honda Pilot win this battle with its ability to tow up to 4,500 pounds compared to the 2,000 lbs. for the Honda Pilot.
The towing capacity of the Ford Flex is greatly helped out by the powerful engine that is yet another win in the Ford Flex vs. Honda Pilot battle. The base trim of the Ford Flex comes with a 3.5-liter, V-6 engine that is rated up to 285-horsepower. The 2013 Ford Flex also has an option, depending on trim, for a 3.5-liter, V-6 with EcoBoost technology that can turn out up to 355-hp. Both engine options of the Ford Flex come with a six-speed automatic and all Environmental Protection Agency fuel-economy ratings are within a couple miles per gallon of one another. The Honda Pilot comes with only one engine option, a 250-hp, 3.5-liter V-6.
