What's New for 2013
The Ford C-MAX is an all-new model for 2013. The 5-passenger car is offered only as a hybrid, either as a typical gas-electric hybrid in SE and SEL models or as a plug-in gas-electric hybrid in the Energi model. All C-MAXs utilize a 2.0L inline-4-cylinder Atkinson engine, along with an electric motor powered by a lithium-ion battery, which together produce 188 total horsepower. A continuously variable transmission is employed to help maximize efficiency, and the EPA estimates 47 mpg in both the city and out on the highway for the C-MAX hybrid. Meanwhile the C-MAX Energi promises a 95 mpg equivalent with its combined gas and electric mode. With seating for five, generous standard and available options and pricing that starts at $25,200, the new C-MAX is a bold and value-laden addition to the Ford lineup.

A vehicle’s warranty can significant impact your maintenance costs after you drive off the dealer’s lot, and it’s important to understand the different parts. Typically, a new car warranty includes a Basic warranty, which covers everything except the wear items such as brakes and tires; and a Drivetrain warranty, that covers all the parts that make the car move, such as the engine and transmission.
