I just read an article regarding the Coefficient of Drag on the Flex. Being that it is a brick, you would assume it has a high COD. Guess what, it doesn't!!!!! It is actually lower in COD than the GMC brethren, Acadia, Outlook and the like. It has the SAME COD as a Tesla Roadster, and it just .02 higher then the Fusion. It takes just 8.9 HP to move at 55 MPH. The aforementioned models need 9.3 HP to do the same.

That is surprising.

Well, it certainly addresses my concerns about adding mud flaps. :)

I've shared that link with a bunch of co-workers and all were suprised. I have started a craze here at work and I have three others looking at them for their next company cars as well...
