Comparison Review

Comfort
Rear passengers will be able to stretch out a lot more in the Ford Flex than in the Kia Telluride. The Ford Flex will be popular with taller drivers and passengers in the front seat, due to its greater front head- and legroom than the Kia Telluride.

Convenience
The Kia Telluride requires fewer stops at the gas station than the Ford Flex, making it more convenient to drive.

Cost
There are a lot of factors to consider when calculating the overall cost of a vehicle. The main consideration is Manufacturer's Suggested Retail Price (MSRP). The Ford Flex is somewhat more expensive than the Kia Telluride. Another consideration is the Destination Charge, which is a standard charge for transporting the vehicle to the dealer from where it's built. In this case, the Ford Flex will cost less to deliver to the dealership than the Kia Telluride.

Dimensions
Since the Ford Flex is much slimmer than the Kia Telluride, it'll be much easier to find a wide enough space in a crowded parking lot. For some people, bigger is better. If that's the case for you, then you'll be happier with the Ford Flex, which is slightly longer than the Kia Telluride.

Drivetrain
With its lower torque engine, the Ford Flex doesn't do as good a job transmitting power to its wheels as the Kia Telluride.

Handling
The Ford Flex has a larger turning radius than the Kia Telluride, making it slightly more difficult to maneuver in and out of tight spots.

Performance
In terms of towing capacity, the Kia Telluride is clearly the choice over the Ford Flex for pulling heavy loads. In terms of horsepower, it's a virtual tie between the Ford Flex and the Kia Telluride.

Utility
The Ford Flex has less seating than the Kia Telluride, making the Kia Telluride the better choice, if you need to chauffeur many passengers. The Ford Flex has less cargo space than the Kia Telluride, which is okay if you don't need to move a lot in one trip.

Warranty
The basic warranty of the Ford Flex is not as nearly as extensive as that of the Kia Telluride.
