Frankfurt 2009: Ford Grand C-Max Headed to North America


As we predicted, Ford’s new Grand C-Max will make its way to North America. Freshly unveiled at the Frankfurt Auto Show, Ford of Europe boss John Flemming made the announcement that the company’s new seven-seat multi-purpose vehicle will make the jump across the pond.

Both the Grand C-Max and standard C-Max are based on Ford’s new global architecture that will also underpin the new Focus. This is yet another European model that Ford is bringing to North America, after announcing several months ago that the Fiesta would find a home in showrooms on this side of the Atlantic.

The Grand C-Max is a seven-seater multi-purpose vehicle along the lines of a Mazda5. In fact, Ford has the 5 directly in its sites, after selling off much of its stake in Mazda about a year ago. TThe Grand C-Max MPV even has typical minivan sliding doors.

Ford unveiled its European MPV complete with the company’s new 1.6-liter 4-cylinder EcoBoost engine, which makes roughly 180h and 170 ft-lbs of torque. Ford plans to offer turbocharged EcoBoost powerplants across almost all of its product range with a 3.5-liter EcoBoost V6 replacing V8 engines, a 2.0-liter EcoBoost 4-cylinder replacing V6 engines and a 1.6-liter 4-cylinder replacing larger four-cylinder motors.
