‘Cadillac of the motorcycle industry’: Ford Motor Co’s new ‘Cabriolet’ model review
Posted On August 6, 2021
Ford Motor Company has unveiled the C-Max, its latest version of its iconic all-terrain SUV, a model that will debut on the global market in the next few months.
The first of four models, the CMAX, has a range of more than 50,000 miles and comes with a range-topping price tag of more $100,000.
In fact, the first model with a price tag higher than that of the company’s previous SUV, the Ford Expedition, sold out in less than four minutes, making the Cmax the fastest-selling SUV in the US.
“This is our most advanced model yet,” said CEO Jim Hackett, adding that the company has achieved the same performance levels and comfort levels as previous models, and that the CMax is “the Cadillac of the motorcycles industry”.
“It’s a premium vehicle,” he said.
“I think that’s the point that we have to be making to our customers, which is that we want to make the most compelling products and we’re not going to compromise the core values that are important to us.”
The new CMAX is based on the company\’s new EcoBoost technology, which produces a more powerful engine, lower emissions and more fuel economy than the petrol engine of its previous models.
Hackett confirmed that the new Cmax will be the first Ford SUV to achieve the same fuel economy and range as the previous Cmax.
The new EcoBrake technology is designed to reduce the need for maintenance, which can also reduce the number of kilometres per 100km.
A new front spoiler helps reduce aerodynamic drag, reducing wheel noise and making the car more fun to drive.
“The CMAX has been engineered to deliver the ultimate in performance,” Hackett said.
“It has been redesigned with the latest technologies to meet the needs of today\’s modern automotive drivers, and it is the perfect vehicle for everyday drivers who want to get more out of their commute.”
The Cmax is expected to debut in the UK in the summer, with the first vehicles being built in China, the US and Mexico.
The new vehicle will also debut in Europe in 2019.
