It is not a surprise that American carmaker is coming into new season with refresh on its current model of C-Max. Nevertheless, engineers and designers wanted to sort things up with critics. So, 2018 Ford C-Max could bring very similar model, with slight updates where it wasn’t so smooth. These are mostly fixes in engine room. However, designers will use the moment, and they will do all necessarily updates on infotainment. With these, C-Max is going to be modern and elegant hatchback. Good thing is that price won’t change a lot, because hatchback is coming without major modifications.
2018 Ford C-Max updates
Without changes, all fans will see 2018 Ford C-Max with same grille as before. Furthermore, 17-inch wheels are again present on new car. If we go further to the rear end, we can spot slight tuning on the side body panels. With new shape, this hatchback is more aerodynamic. This vehicle will have few trim levels in offer for new season. Depending on class, it comes with more or less equipment. Nevertheless, base unit is attractive by itself, and every additional feature is making it better. There are also some parts available for purchase, and with these 2018 C-Max can be even more attractive, but also expensive.
2018 Ford C-Max drivetrain
Under the hood of the 2018 Ford C-Max is a 2.0-l four-banger Atkinson drivetrain. This unit can make 140 hp and 130 lb-ft of torque. A CVT gearbox is certain solution, as well as front-wheel drive. On the other hand, C-Max is perfect choice to combine electric battery with petrol engine, to get a hybrid. Electric motor completes this combination. We can see significant upgrade on the performance end, since hybrid can make almost 200 hp and 180 lb-ft of torque. This drive system uses specific, eCVT gearbox. Fuel economy numbers are unknown for hybrid, but experts predict 38 mpg combined for regular car. This is good achievement, so we can expect way better mileage with electric support.
2018 Ford C-Max price
New 2018 Ford C-Max won’t cost too much higher than current version. With minor updates, we believe bosses will keep the price under $25,000 for base hybrid units. On the other hand, some features, such as panoramic sunroof, cost $1,300. So, buyers can make their own model, but it is going to cost them extra money.
