DEARBORN, MI - Ford Motor Company's new 7-seat C-MAX introduced Sept. 15 at the Frankfurt Motor Show will arrive in North America beginning late 2011, the automaker announced in a statement.
In North America, the "whitespace" vehicle will be one of up to 10 unique models the company will create from an all-new global C-car platform developed under its One Ford strategy.
With the market introduction of the 7-seat C-MAX in late 2011, Ford will offer North American customers three distinct models in the compact segment. The C-MAX is the first of a new generation of global C-segment cars scheduled for introduction by Ford over the next several years. This series of new models will include the launch globally of the next-generation Ford Focus beginning late 2010. Up to 10 models and more than 2 million vehicles per year based on this platform will be sold by Ford around the world when the entire launch is complete, according to the automaker.
