When it comes to taking care of a family, the 2019 Ford Flex covers all of the bases. It is big, stylish, high-tech and highly capable. Although the 2018 Honda Pilot may be the more well-known crossover SUV, if you compare it to the 2019 Flex, you may be surprised at what you'll find. Read on to learn more!


Compared to the 2018 Honda Pilot, the 2019 Flex offers the following:

  • More passenger volume
  • More second-row legroom
  • More third-row legroom
  • Bigger cargo hold

The Flex is bigger than the Pilot. It has a few more inches in its length and a few more for its wheelbase. The result is more space for passengers. Flex passenger volume is 155.8 cu.ft. for six or seven passengers while the Honda Pilot offers 152.9 cu.ft. for seven or eight people. The difference is stark on the second row where the Flex has 44.3 inches of legroom and the Pilot has only 38 inches. On the back row, where it matters even more, the Flex has two more inches of legroom. Traveling for a big family is easier when you don’t have to fold seats to create cargo room. The Flex has 20 cu.ft. in its hold while the Pilot lags behind with 16.5 cu.ft.


The 2019 Flex's superior performance specs include but aren't limited to:

  • More powerful base engine
  • Ecoboost V6 engine option

The base engine for the Ford Flex is more powerful than the Pilot’s powertrain. Flex drivers command slightly more horsepower, giving them an advantage over Pilot drivers. Furthermore, only the Flex is offered with Ford’s advanced Ecoboost V6 engine. This V8-like unit cranks out 365 horsepower and 350 lb-ft of torque. Yet it is more of a fuel sipper than an actual V8 would be.

Standards and Amenities

Notable 2019 Flex standard interior features:

  • Standard Power Chair
  • Power-Fold Third Row
  • Power-adjustable Pedals
  • Power-adjustable steering wheel

The Flex standard package has a power chair while the Pilot holds back on this important feature. Shoppers should take note that only the Flex is offering power-adjusting pedals or a power-adjustable steering wheel. Furthermore, the Flex offers Ford's one-touch Power-Fold Third Row. This feature also allows the owner to flip the chairs and create seating for tailgate parties.

Whether you want a value-rich hauler for your family or a leather-clad premium ride, you'll find a match in the three trims of the 2019 Ford Flex. Try it on for size by taking a test drive at J.C. Lewis Ford Statesboro!
