Of note, the chassis is a Volvo designed chassis that will most likely be redisgned in the next couple of years.
    Why did you choose the explorer

    I chose the explorer (Platinum) because it felt a little bit more upscale with materials. My kids are teenagers and I was not worried about the interior receiving extra wear. I felt like the flex was a little bit cheaper on the materials in the rear cabin area. The surfaces were more hard and probably easier to clean. If I had little kids I probably would have looked closer at the flex. I also noticed the difference in how they drive. The flex felt like it was a little bit lower to the ground not sure that was actually the case, though and it felt a little bit more like a car. I think the styling of the FLex is great. Every time I see one go by it reminds me of an old 40's Ford Panel Van. The looks are timeless. The explorer on the other hand is very dated...If you decide the Flex I would go Ecoboost, but then again I am a huge turbo fan. I have owned numerous Ecoboost vehicles and have been very happy with them.
