Engine and Performance

The C-MAX is Ford’s first C-Class model powered by the new 1.6-liter EcoBoost™ I-4 engine that combines performance with improved fuel economy and reduced CO2 emissions. This all-aluminum engine was developed for global applications and combines high-pressure direct injection, low-inertia turbocharging and twin independent variable camshaft timing (Ti-VCT) to achieve fuel economy results up to 20 percent better than naturally aspirated, larger-displacement gasoline engines with a similar power output.
