Ford Grand C-Max in USA is just C-Max

According to netcarshow the ford gradn c-max in USA will be just C-Max!
What is the difference, as much as i can see from the pics:
1. front grille, the ford logo and the plate
2. central console and the handbrake, and of course the MPH dash
what else do you see?

other thing is the engines!
2.5-liter iVCT I-4 and 1.6 ecoboost both with Ford's 6F35 automatic six-speed transmission

more info here
http://www.netcarshow.com/ford/2012-c-max/

EU grand c-max

USA C-max

EU

USA


Also look at this pics!
Engine RPM is 6k?

Is 2.5 L engine revs only to 5500 rpm???

Wow, the US version looks better for a change. With exception to the lack of projector headlights. But that's nothing some aftermarket work can't change.

On a side note what does C-Max stand for? Climax? As in what happens when you lure a hot girl into the back seats? Giggity giggity giggity!!! I'm sorry... :-(

I'm stoked about this coming over. It's got it's own unique appeal that doesn't lean so much towards "minivan". The wife likes it alot as I do too. The no-hands rear lift gate is a trick little feature when you've got your hands full of baby junk or whatever... One quick swipe of the foot beneath the rear bumper and waa-lah!

BTW... I hope they offer the Xenon headlamps as an option...

Are those sliding rear doors??????

With drink holders like that, I can see the driver and passenger fumbling for which drink they have their hand on, or taking the other person's top off when they pull theirs up.

I seriously doubt we'll see a 6 spd manual trans in the USA.

The roof rack without cross bars reminds me of what I got when my wagon was delivered- "Oh, those don't come with it, but you can order them for $150 each."

Posted via FF Mobile Yes sliding rear doors. The grand c max has that and a third row. Cmax has traditional doors and only two rows. But like stated here in the US its just cmax beecause we only getting one. Usually those cross bars pop out of the roof rack...sometimes lol. But yes sometimes they make u pay extra which is dumb. Im gonna guess these pop out.

I had a mazda5 and loved it. I'm curious about this thing. I'll have to check it out at the dealer near me some time.

Posted via FF Mobile Forgot to mention a cool fact. The lift gate is motion sensored. All you do is walk up to the rear with your key fob and move your leg under the rear bumper, then the liftgate opens.
