Powerful, efficient and dynamic
The new C-MAX and Grand C-MAX offer significantly improved CO2 figures and for the first time feature as standard Ford’s Auto-Start-Stop technology on EcoBoost petrol and 2.0-litre TDCi diesel engines. The most improved model is expected to offer a 20 per cent reduction in CO2 emissions.
The new C-MAX family powertrain line-up is being extended to include Ford’s fuel-efficient new 1.5-litre EcoBoost petrol engine with 150 PS and 182 PS, and also will be offered with Ford’s new 1.5-litre TDCi diesel engine, delivering 95 PS or 120 PS, and a new ECOnetic version that is expected to deliver 99 g/km CO2 in the five-seat C-MAX. The C-MAX family will continue to be offered with 100 PS and 125 PS versions of the multi-award winning 1.0-litre EcoBoost petrol engine.
During the first seven months of 2014, more than a quarter of C-MAX models sold in Europe** were equipped with the 1.0-litre EcoBoost engine, which in 2014 was named International Engine of the Year for an unprecedented third consecutive year.
The new 120 PS 1.5-litre diesel engine is expected to offer up to a six per cent improvement in CO2 compared to the 1.6-litre diesel it replaces, while delivering 5 PS more power. The revised 2.0-litre diesel is expected to improve emissions by up to 20 per cent and power by over four per cent.
“Ford’s new 1.5-litre EcoBoost and TDCi engines are significant additions to a powertrain line-up that offers comprehensive power and fuel efficiency improvements,” said Jim Baumbick, Ford’s global C-car vehicle line director, “These powertrains also will help make C-MAX the first car in its segment to comply with the latest EU Stage VI emissions regulations across the entire range from launch.”
