2014 FORD C-MAX: Ford's two new hybrid vehicles, the 2014 C-MAX Hybrid and C-MAX Energi plug-in hybrid, feature the next generation of powersplit technology. The C-MAX hybrids are built in Wayne, Michigan and are the company's first dedicated hybrid vehicle line and the first MAV (multi-activity vehicle) line in North America. Both the C-MAX Hybrid and C-MAX Energi get their power through the combination of the all-new 2.0-liter Atkinson-cycle four-cylinder gasoline engine and an advanced lithium-ion battery-driven electric motor. The collective powerplants generate 185 horsepower and come matched to a eCVT hybrid powersplit transaxle transmission. C-MAX Energi is charged by connecting the vehicle's external charge port to either a standard 120-volt outlet or available 240-volt charging station. Both C-MAX models features a high roof design, a five-passenger cabin that includes a split, fold-flat second-row seat, and 43.4 cu. ft. of cargo room behind the first row. An innovative hands-free liftgate allows quick and easy access to the cargo area without ever needing to fumble for keys. Available for C-MAX Energi is the MyFord Mobile smartphone application that allows users to monitor charging, receive alerts, find charge stations, plan trips and do more from their smartphones or computers. Additional available technology features on C-MAX include active park assist, push-button start, AM/FM/CD/MP3 Sony Audio, HD Radio(tm) and voice-activated Navigation System. The C-MAX hybrids also feature standard Curve Control that is designed to slow the vehicle when it’s cornering too fast and Torque Vectoring Control to help accelerate through a turn when necessary. AdvanceTracwith Roll Stability Control and electric power-assisted steering also are standard.
