Offering a lineup of three editions, the 2019 Ford Flex is an SUV that carries a manufacturer's suggested retail price (MSRP) of slightly more than $30,500. Starting at approximately $30,900.** the 2018 Honda Pilot is an SUV that's available in five trims. Offering two signature engines and the SelectShift automatic transmission system, the 2019 Flex performs better than the Pilot on paved roads and off-road trails. Furthermore, Ford's trademark SYNC 3 multimedia system has more digital features than this Honda's infotainment console.

The Ti-VCT technology manages the mechanics of the 2019 Ford Flex's V6, rated at 287 horsepower and 254 pound-feet of torque. The turbocharged EcoBoost powertrain generates a maximum of 365 hp and 350 lb-ft. Featuring the i-VTEC SOHC technology, the six-cylinder in the 2018 Honda Pilot can produce only 280 hp. Furthermore, equipped with the Intelligent AWD, the 2019 Flex maintains good balance on slippery roads or rough trails more effectively than the Pilot.

Interior Specs

  • Flex Second-Row Passenger Legroom: 44.3 inches
  • Flex Third-Row Legroom: 33.3 inches
  • Flex Infotainment: Sync 3
  • Pilot Second-Row Legroom: 38.3 inches
  • Pilot Third-Row Legroom: 31.9 inches
  • Pilot Infotainment: HondaLink

The Ford Flex provides significantly more space for your second-row passengers to stretch out. When taking a long road trip, your family will greatly appreciate the additional legroom. Greater room in its third row gives the Flex yet another advantage. Some passengers will find the Pilot’s third row to be a tight fit. Drivers give Ford’s Sync 3 interface top marks for its easy-to-use design and responsive touch screen. On the other hand, Car and Driver considers the Pilot’s infotainment system to be one of its weakest links. Some users will become frustrated with HondaLink’s lack of a volume knob.

Safety Features

  • Flex: Active Park Assist
  • Flex: Trailer Sway Control
  • Flex: Forward Collision Warning
  • Pilot: No Automated Parking
  • Pilot: Forward Collision Warning
  • Pilot: No Trailer Sway Control

An available automated parking system makes the Flex easier to maneuver in crowded areas. While both SUVs offer forward collision warning, some Pilot drivers have experienced issues with false alarms. This advanced safety feature helps ensure secure towing. The Flex's trailer sway control system combines with Roll Stability Control to balance loads. Unfortunately, these towing innovations aren't available on the Honda Pilot.
