Get Up Close and Personal with the 2018 C-Max

The 2018 Ford C-Max is built for performance. The 2.0L iVCT Atkinson-cycle I-4 engine works in conjunction with a lithium-ion battery to deliver power. This hybrid construction makes the vehicle much more efficient. It has the most power in the small hybrid class, at 188 HP. When driven in all-electric mode, the 2018 Ford C-Max can reach a speed of 85mph.

All of these numbers are striking. But more impressive is the way this vehicle conserves and reuses power. Regenerative braking takes energy usually lost during the stopping process and brings it back to the battery.

The Ford C-Max even features active grille shutters. These are managed electronically by the engine control module. They open and close to keep the engine operating at the perfect temperature. Closing the shutters when not needed makes the car more aerodynamic and efficient. The 2018 Ford C-Max really needs to be driven to be believed. Stop by Brandon Ford for a test drive.
