2009 Ford Flex
To the joy of cool parents everywhere, the Ford Flex was released in 2009 featuring family vehicle capabilities with luxury vehicle style. With square lines, low ride height and a floating roof, family-haulers have never looked this good.
Essentially a minivan for badasses, the Ford Flex seats seven passengers within a comfortable interior. Second row seats feature optional power adjustments and can flip down to optimize rear storage. With a 3.5L engine and optional AWD, its functional in Alberta winters as well.
Ford offered three different trim levels, allowing purchasers to choose the luxury or economy that works for you. A refrigerated beverage cooler in the center console is optional in luxury trims, along with heated seats, a four-panel vista sunroof, and touch screen navigation featuring voice recognition. If you aren’t ready for the painstaking utility of a minivan, the 2009 Ford Flex is for you.
2009 Toyota RAV4
Deep into its third generation, the Toyota RAV4 is a tried-and-true SUV. Pretty much a big Camry with 4wd capability, the 2009 RAV4 defines the compact-SUV class with a 9.8L/100 km fuel economy. Toyota is known for making great four cylinder engines, and the RAV4’s 2.5L inline-four is a proven model. But if you really want to have fun, choose the 3.5L V6 with a 5-speed manual transmission, and gain 90hp and 74 lb-ft of torque compared to the base option.
If speed and performance isn’t your thing, you’ll still love Toyota’s reliability. Low maintenance costs and renowned liability makes the 2009 RAV4 a great SUV for everyday drivers. With great handling in winter conditions, stellar safety ratings, and a high ride height, this is the SUV your mom wants you to drive.
2010 Ford Edge
For those who lean to the fun side of the performance-utility spectrum, the 2010 Ford Edge is a great SUV choice. With an aggressive stance and short wheel base, the Ford Edge looks as good as it handles. A 3.5L V6 produces 265 horsepower and 250 lb-ft of torque through an available all-wheel drive powertrain.
The 2010 Edge is well equipped (for a Ford) with ambient lighting, faux-suede upholstery and otional 22 inch wheel. A panoramic sunroof, rear seat DVD-capable entertainment (it is a 2010 after all), and voice activated navigation system. If you want driving to be an experience, choose the Ford Edge.
