While Ford’s retiring news to the 2017 C-Max hybrid and C-Max Energi plug-in hybrid don’t pertain to the useful different purpose powertrains, both versions achieve a rewritten impression and a debased commencing value, plus an evaluated raise in ratio efficiency. Surprisingly, the U.S. C-Max’s out news turn from those of the European model. If the European-spec C-Max underwent a full facelift, then the changes to U.S. model are more like a shot of Botox. There’s a restyled opening, brand-new wheels and brand-new headlights and taillamps, all of which make for a gangling hatchback that’s still not as beautiful as the one Ford is trading across the lake.
Despite the information that the C-Max continues to rely on the same 2.0-liter four-cylinder engine and an electric motor that’s provided by a 1.4-kWh artillery pack, Ford predicts the 188-hp hybrid will see fuel economy emergence from 41 mpg municipality and 36 mpg freeway to 42/38 mpg. Meanwhile, the plug-in Energi, with its carryover 7.6-kWh pack, sees its ratio get a shock from 95 to 104 MPGe in the municipality and from 81 to 87 MPGe on the freeway. Although the EPA hasn’t released official illustrations for either 2017 C-Max model, we expect the Energi’s evaluated EV extent to increase from 19 miles (2016 version) to 20. Along with its brand-new looks, the 2017 C-Max adds a Titanium model that effectively replaces last year’s SEL. The C-Max Energi, which previously available in a solo trim stage, is now accessible in either SE or Titanium trims as well.
Commencing at $24,995, the 2017 C-Max’s aculeu value is $50 debased than last year and the 2017 C-Max Energi now starts at $27,995 or $4650 less than before, due to the inclusion of the debased-spec SE model. More fantastic is the information that the top-of-the-line 2017 C-Max Energi Titanium undercuts the 2016 Energi’s value by $1650. Additionally, all 2017 C-Max versions come regular with an energy driver’s seat and a backup camera, while a brand-new blind-spot monitoring system is accessible on Titanium versions.
