We will start with the changes that took place under the hood of the 2016 Ford C-Max Energi and say that the newcomer will have very powerful and tough engine options. Namely, the customers will be offered two gasoline engine variants and two diesel version which will probably be available only in Europe. The first or the base engine option will be a 1.0-liter EcoBoost power unit which enables you to get the maximum output of 120 horses, while the level of torque is expected to be 200 pound feet. There will also be a 1.5-liter EcoBoost drivetrain which will be available in the U.S. Since the 2016 Ford C-Max Energi will be offered with conventional drivetrains overseas, the U.S models will get all-electrically boosted engines. There will be a hybrid and plug-in hybrid variants. Both options have a 2.0L Atkinson-Cycle I-4 which generates 141 horses and 129 pound feet of torque. The main difference is that the previous one gets a 1.4 kWh battery pack, while the later one gets a 7.6 kWh lithium-ion unit.

Its front sports a newly designed large grille with a lower full-width intake. When you look at the car from the back, you won’t notice any significant change, so the rear remains pretty much unchanged.
