Let’s say you want to go from Los Angeles to Las Vegas and back but you want to do it on one inexpensive tank of fuel; what do you do? When the 2013 Ford C-MAX Hybrid hits the market later this fall, it will carry with it the ability to do such a trip. With an EPA estimated 47 mpg combined, America’s most efficient hybrid utility will be able to travel 570 miles on a single tank of gas. With so much frugality, taking the C-MAX on a trip to the Strip would allow for even more money to be dumped into casinos.
“City, highway, and everywhere in between, C-MAX Hybrid is EPA-certified at 47 mpg,” said Ford Vice President of Powertrain Engineering Joe Bakaj. “It’s a win-win-win.” The C-MAX Hybrid has been besting the Toyota Prius V since before it was even EPA certified. After which, both of its ratings proved better than the Toyota by 7 mpg. On top of that, the Ford’s entry cost is roughly $1,300 less than that of the Prius. Nearly 500 hybrid patents were put into place so the C-MAX Hybrid could be born. Powered by an all-new 2.0 liter liter Atkinson-cycle four-cylinder engine paired with a battery-powered high torque electric motor, the Ford pumps out 188 horsepower and can travel up to 62 mph in full EV mode.
