"The Ford C-MAX delivers still more proof of how our One Ford plan continues to deliver the high-quality, fuel-efficient products people want," said Mark Fields, Ford's president of The Americas. "Ford C-MAX is just right for customers in North America seeking modern, flexible transportation and life-enhancing technology that comes standard."
"The scale and flexibility of our global new Ford C-vehicle platform enable us to develop distinct vehicles including Ford C-MAX," said Derrick Kuzak, Ford group vice president of Global Product Development. "It's a 'white space' vehicle here in North America - a new choice - and we believe buyers will appreciate the technology, convenience, and functionality Ford C-MAX packs into a neat package."
"This all-new model is set to take small crossover performance to a new level, giving drivers a class-leading combination of responsive, sporty handling, and widespread refinement and quietness similar to the standard found in larger luxury vehicles," said John Davis, chief engineer for the North American Ford C-MAX.
