2015 Ford C-Max
Based on Focus, this car represents Ford’s vision of the multi-purpose vehicle. It was originally released in 2003 and we have seen two generation of this vehicle so far. Third generation is hugely expected. Some of us expected that new generation C-Max might be presented on the last Geneva auto show but it didn’t happened. Everyone knows that current model is outdated, so it is clear that we will see new-generation C-Max very soon. There are some indications that it will be a 2015 C-max model. If it happen, first ones that will presented will be Hybrid and Energy Plug-In Hybrid models, while U.S. market models will come soon after that.
2015 Ford C-Max redesign
Main problem with current model is definitely an exterior design. All of the competitors already released their new models, so C-Max is very often considered as outdated but, to be honest, with a good reason. New, 2015 Ford C-Max will get new not only a new, much fresher design but also a new platform. Ford developed new Global C platform, which will be used for several models. Not only that it will be used for new 2015 Ford C-Max, it will be also use for 7-seat variant of this model called Grand C-Max. Now, let’s talk about some possible design solutions. New model will get new designed grille, with more chrome elements. Headlights will get some narrower and sharper form, while bumpers and hood are also expected to get new design.
2015 Ford C-Max engines
Big changes are expected from 2015 C-Max, especially when it is about engines. It is expected the current 1.6 liter EcoBoost will be replaced. The replacement is new 1.5 liter EcoBoost. Although it is smaller, it delivers power in a range from 150 to 180 horsepower. It is also expected that this new one will have about 10 percent better fuel economy. New diesel variant is also prepared for 2015 Ford C-Max. It is a 1.5 liter TDCi which has a power range from 95 hp to 120 horses. Big news is that hybrid version, which is present in U.S. from 2012, will finally be offered for European market. Beside standard 6-speed manual transmission, it is expected new model to get six-speed automatic transmission with dual clutch.
