Big crossover: Ford Flex
Big crossover: Ford Flex
Base price: $28,295
Mileage: 24 mpg Hwy, 17 mpg City*

This one's not quite ready for you yet - the Flex enters dealerships this summer. It's a full-size three-row crossover SUV that, with an optional contrast-colored roof, looks a little like a giant Mini Cooper.

The interior is far more conservative in appearance than the outside, but it's elegant, functional and roomy.

Kelley Blue Book particularly likes some of the novel options. Besides Ford's Sync Bluetooth audio/phone system, you can get a refrigerator to keep your drinks cool on the road.
