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