The Future of Motoring Has Arrived in the 2016 Ford C-MAX

2016 Ford C-Max

The 2016 Ford C-MAX is one of the most advanced vehicles currently available for Chicago and Manteno drivers, featuring a powertrain sourced from the forefront of automotive innovation and a wide selection of high-end technology. Hybrid and Plug-in models have just been taken to a whole new level.

Changes for 2016

The 2016 Ford C-MAX rolls into dealerships across the country with a few changes from previous models. The most impressive is a switch from the MyFord Touch system to a new and improved Sync 3 interface. Engineered with state-of-the-art technology to provide a more intuitive user experience, the Sync 3 system includes improved voice recognition software and an 8-inch touchscreen with fingertip swipe and pinch-to-touch capabilities.

Trim Levels and Price

2016 C-MAX Hybrid SELThe 2016 Ford C-MAX is available for Chicago and Manteno drivers in three separate trims, with hybrid and plug-in models both on offer.

  • Hybrid SE: Starting at $24,170, the Hybrid SE comes with a whole range of premium features to complement its cutting-edge powertrain. Dual-zone electronic automatic temperature control provides individual comfort areas, while a leather-wrapped steering wheel and shift knob create an executive air. A remote keyless entry system and cruise control also come as standard.
  • Hybrid SEL: Starting at $27,170, the SEL model upgrades to the all-new Sync 3 infotainment system. It also provides Chicago and Manteno drivers with the convenience of rain-sensing wipers and an intelligent access system with push-button start feature, plus the comfort of heated seats.
  • Energi: Starting at $31,770, the Energi combines the features of the SEL with the ability to charge your vehicle from home, while also adding a remote start system and a MyFord mobile app which lets you monitor and schedule charging from anywhere in range.

Powertrains and MPG

C-MAX Energi Plug-In HybridThe 2016 Ford C-MAX isn’t focused purely on fuel-efficiency – that’s just the first thing which gets people talking. It also offers a Best-in-Class 141 horsepower alongside 129 lb-ft of torque from a 2.0L Atkinson-Cycle 4-cylinder hybrid engine. This results in a smooth, responsive ride which feels the same as driving a standard vehicle – only with the knowledge that you’re earning an incredible 42 mpg in the city and 27 on the highway thanks to the high-end electronic continuously variable transmission (e-CVT).

The C-MAX Energi differs from the C-MAX Hybrid by offering Chicago and Manteno drivers plug-in capability. Energi models possess a larger state-of-the-art lithium-ion battery which can be fully recharged overnight using the standard 120-volt convenience cord, or in just 2.5 hours with the available 240-volt home charging option. It makes an admirable 40 mpg in the city and 36 on the highway.

Interior Space and Versatility

C-MAX Hybrid interiorThe 2016 Ford C-MAX carries up to five people, with Best-in-Class passenger volume and an upscale interior ensuring that everyone feels comfortable during even the longest of journeys.

You’ll also be able to carry an outstanding amount of cargo – there’s up to 24.5 cu. ft. behind the second row or 52.6 cu. ft. behind the first row – and both models provide plenty of hidden compartments in the second-row footwell to let you organize your belongings while also keeping them away from prying eyes. Even loading and unloading is easier than ever thanks to the Class-Exclusive hands-free, foot-activated liftgate.

Tech Features

C-MAX Hybrid interior SYNC® 3The 2016 Ford C-MAX can be fitted with a diverse selection of features, but none have been more positively received than the Sync 3 system. With an easy-to-use design, improved interface, enhanced voice recognition, and all-new features, the Sync 3 is both state of the art and highly responsive. Energi models can even use it to schedule charge times and find out when electrical costs are lowest.

Other advanced available features include:

  • Active Park Assist: Hate finding a place to park? Just let this system’s ultrasonic sensors do the hard work for you. They’ll measure distances between parked cars to identify an appropriate spot, then signal you to stop and help guide you in.
  • Intelligent Access with Push-Button Start: If you have the Intelligent Access key on your person, just touch the door handle to open your C-MAX, then press the brake pedal and start button once inside to start the vehicle. You’ll never have to fumble in your pockets or purse again.
  • Satellite Navigation: Equipped as standard with a five-year complimentary SiriusXM Traffic and SiriusXM Travel Link trial subscription, this GPS navigation system utilizes 3-D mapping and turn-by-turn directions to make late meetings and missed exits a thing of the past.
