Grand C-Max Technical Specification

Advanced engineering

The C-MAX and Grand C-MAX introduce advanced engineering that enhances performance, sustainability and helps lower the cost of ownership.

You can choose from upgraded versions of our acclaimed Duratorq TDCi diesel engines, the 1.6-litre EcoBoost turbocharged petrol engine and the ever-popular Duratec petrol units. In addition, our lower CO2 engines are available with advanced transmissions, including a Durashift six-speed manual gearbox, used for the first time in the C-MAX and Grand C-MAX, and the PowerShift six-speed dual-clutch automatic transmission.

New 1.6-litre EcoBoost petrol engine

The 1.6-litre EcoBoost petrol engine is available as a 150 PS power output. The unit achieves a fuel economy (combined cycle) of 42.8 mpg (Grand C-MAX) and 44.1 mpg (C-MAX) with a CO2 output of 154 g/km (Grand C-MAX) and149 g/km* (C-MAX). Better still, EcoBoost engines deliver the improved power and fuel efficiency while reducing CO2 emissions by up to 18% compared to the 2.0-litre Duratec petrol engine. Needless to say, the engines also meet today's most stringent global emissions requirements.

EcoBoost responsiveness and broad spread of power at low rpm levels combined with reduced size, weight and fuel economy mean a more exhilarating driving experience.

Upgraded Duratorq TDCi diesel engines

The 1.6- and 2.0-litre Duratorq TDCi diesel engines available in the C-MAX and Grand C-MAX have been completely updated to deliver improved performance, fuel economy and refinement. Driveability is significantly enhanced with increased responsiveness and plenty of power even at low engine speeds.

The 1.6-litre Duratorq TDCi is available in a 115 PS power rating. This can deliver extra performance when hard acceleration is required. It does this with an overboost, which increases peak torque from 270 Nm to 285 Nm for up to 15 seconds. There's exceptional fuel efficiency with both variants achieving fuel economy (combined cycle) of 61.4 mpg and CO2 emissions of just 119 g/km in the C-MAX (and 57.7 mpg and 129 g/km in the Grand C-MAX).

The latest 2.0-litre Duratorq TDCi engine brings powerful performance to the C-MAX's diesel line-up, but not at the expense of fuel economy and CO2 emissions. The 140 PS unit delivers more power, a broader spread of torque and improved responsiveness at low engine speeds, while achieving fuel economy (combined cycle) of 55.4 mpg and CO2 emissions of 139 g/km* in the C-MAX (with manual transmission).

Other petrol engines

The petrol engine line-up in the C-MAX and Grand C-MAX also includes Ford’s proven 1.6-litre Duratec Ti-VCT unit with power outputs of 105 PS and 125 PS.

This responsive and economical all-aluminium 16-valve Ti-VCT engine has been further optimised and tuned to deliver reduced fuel consumption and more performance. Fuel economy (combined cycle) figures have improved with 42.8 mpg and a CO2 output of 154 g/km* in the C-MAX.

The 105 PS engine has a top speed of 112 mph and accelerates from zero to 62 mph in 12.6 seconds. With the new 125 PS engine, top speed rises to 117 mph, while the zero to 62 mph time is cut to 11.5 seconds.

Ford PowerShift dual-clutch automatic transmission

You can also specify the highly efficient PowerShift six-speed dual-clutch automatic transmission, which is available with the 140 PS version of the latest 2.0-litre Duratorq TDCi diesel.

The smooth and advanced PowerShift transmission is a dual-clutch design that combines the efficiency, optimised gear ratios and driving enjoyment of a manual gearbox with the smoothness and ease of use of an automatic. The transmission is significantly more efficient than conventional automatics, resulting in impressive fuel economy levels and low CO2 emissions. With the 140 PS 2.0-litre Duratorq TDCi engine, the C-MAX with Ford PowerShift has a (combined cycle)fuel consumption of 50.4 mpg and a CO2 output of 149 g/km*, while still being capable of an impressive 0-62 mph acceleration time of 10.1 seconds.

New six-speed Ford Durashift manual transmission

The C-MAX and Grand C-MAX vehicles fitted with the 1.6-litre EcoBoost petrol and 1.6-litre Duratorq TDCi diesel engines are available with a completely six-speed manual gearbox.

The Durashift transmission replaces existing five-speed gearboxes with a design that is exceptionally light and compact for its power output. The new transmission is 30% lighter than our other six-speed manual gearbox, while it's the same size and weight as the current five-speed transmission for small cars, despite having the additional ratio and a 50% higher torque capacity.

To reduce fuel consumption further, the design minimises efficiency losses, such as oil flow within the transmission. It also delivers best-in-class gearshift quality, with utmost precision and economy.

*Note: all CO2 emission figures in g/km and fuel consumption figures are from officially approved tests in accordance with EC Directive 93/116/EC. Fuel economy figures quoted are based on the European Fuel Economy Directive EU 80/1268/EEC and will differ from fuel economy drive cycle results in other regions of the world.

Active Park Assist

Active Park Assist helps you park in spaces just 1.2 times the length of the car. What’s more, it will actually perform a semi-automatic parallel parking manoeuvre. It uses a series of body-mounted sensors, so the driver only has to press the accelerator, shift gears or brake – the steering is all done for you! Audible warnings and information displayed on the centre console's screen guide the driver until the parking manoeuvre has been successfully completed. (Option as part of the Convenience Pack).

Blind Spot Information System

This high-tech visual aid is available to help make journeys more relaxing, especially on motorways. As another vehicle enters your blind spot, the system alerts you by illuminating a warning light in the relevant door mirror.

Torque Vectoring Control

Improves stability in tight corners by applying brake force to the inside wheel and transferring power to the outer wheel. Cornering is sure-footed thanks to the increased traction and reduced understeer.

Electronic Stability Programme (ESP) with Traction Control and Emergency Brake Assist (EBA)

The state-of-the-art ESP is at the heart of many of the active safety features. It monitors the vehicle’s progress and is always ready to apply effective - and often imperceptible - intervention when required. While the system cannot be overridden, a new reduced assistance mode helps the vehicle in slippery traction situations such as getting the vehicle out of deep snow.

ESP also incorporates Traction Control to eliminate excessive wheel spin and guarantee optimal traction performance and stability. For times when you need to stop quickly, EBA ensures full braking force is available whenever necessary, helping reduce stopping distances in an emergency. And, should you need to brake heavily, the Emergency Brake Warning repeatedly flashes the rear brake lights to alert other drivers.

Subframe-mounted suspension

The improved suspension system in the C-MAX and Grand C-MAX reduces steering friction and advances handling control. The front and rear suspension systems are mounted on the vehicle's subframe, which helps them to deliver optimal performance, composed steering and a thoroughly comfortable ride.

Steering and handling

The rack-and-pinion steering system with hydraulic power assistance provides the best possible steering feedback. To produce enhanced stability, special attention has been given to the tuning of the suspension and steering systems.

Electric power-assisted steering (EPAS)

The system can easily determine individual driving situations, like country road cruising or parking, and automatically apply the precise level of hydraulic support. As speed increases, less steering assistance is required and EPAS automatically stiffens the steering for better feedback and road contact. Integral to the steering system, Pull-Drift Compensation minimises the annoying holding effort when driving along roads with a heavy camber, or with a constant side wind. What's more, EPAS only provides power assistance when required, which can reduce fuel consumption by up to 3% compared to a conventional hydraulic power steering system.

Grand C-Max Key Features

Active Park Assist

Helps you park in spaces just 1.2 times the length of the car. After confirming the space is large enough, the system operates the steering while you control the pedals. Audio and visual guides help you manoeuvre. (Option as part of Convenience Pack).

Grand C-MAX ultimate flexibility

The ingenious 7-seat interior of the Grand C-MAX offers you the flexibility of accessing third row seating via a walk-through. It's created by easily folding away the middle seat in the second row and is extremely handy when child seats are fitted.

5-star Euro NCAP rating

Both C-MAX and Grand C-MAX have achieved maximum official independent ratings for safety.

Rear sliding doors

Sliding doors on the Grand C-MAX are a Ford first. Neatly integrated, they complement the bold looks of the Grand C-MAX and are ideal for easy rear seat access and avoiding bumps in narrow parking bays.

Power operated tailgate

You can open the tailgate from a button on the centre console, tailgate handle or key fob - great when your hands are full. The intelligent design lets you programme the opening height to avoid obstacles, such as the garage roof. For protection, two anti-pinch sensors will detect any obstruction when closing and then safely release. Optional as part of the family pack.

EcoBoost efficient performance

The 1.6-litre EcoBoost turbocharged petrol engine delivers 18% improved fuel economy with 18% lower CO2 emissions* compared to the 2.0-litre Duratec petrol engine. It's a driving technology win-win, delivering large engine performance with the fuel economy of a much smaller unit.

Seat belt reminder system

To help promote peace of mind for the driver, visual and audible alerts indicate when any seat belt is fastened or unfastened. (Grand C-MAX only)

Rear-view camera

Select reverse gear and a rearward view automatically displays on the instrument panel. You can see how close you are to objects behind and graphics superimposed on the image indicate the vehicle's direction of travel. (Option, as part of Sony DAB navigation system at extra cost, on C-MAX and Grand C-MAX Titanium).

Hill Start Assist

This innovation prevents you from rolling backwards when making a hill start. After releasing the brake when stationary, the technology keeps the wheels braked and assists the driver to move away safely.

*Note: all CO2 emission figures in g/km and fuel consumption figures are from officially approved tests in accordance with EC Directive 93/116/EC. Fuel economy figures quoted are based on the European Fuel Economy Directive EU 80/1268/EEC and will differ from fuel economy drive cycle results in other regions of the world.

Customer Feedback

We have been rated 4.57 out of 5 based on 2303 ratings.

I'd recommend PJ Nicholls Evesham to a friend because they are helpful and friendly.

I'd suggest PJ Nicholls Pershore to a friend because they provide an excellent and courteous service.

PJ Nicholls Pershore staff were good because they are always very helpful

My experience at PJ Nicholls Pershore was cracking because of the commitment made to ensure I understood everything no question was left unanswered and I felt I could trust what I was told.

I'd definitely recommend PJ Nicholls Pershore to friends and family because it is a local firm for customer service but a big enough firm to have good deals and prices.

PJ Nicholls Tewkesbury were really helpful and I'd recommend them because they constantly provide a good service and excellent support.

My experience at PJ Nicholls Malvern was memorable because they are real people and communicate to the customers in a friendly kind manner

Wow. Where to start? My purchase was through the Tewkesbury branch and for a Fiesta - the Ecoboost Titanium 125 to be precise. Simon dealt with my queries most of the way, with some added clarification from Alex (group sales manager) thrown in. Perhaps the best compliment I can give is as follows. In a few years' time if, and when, I'm in the market for a Ford again: I'll go to these guys before anybody else out of loyalty. I won't go into the exact details of our negotiation, other than to say that both sides were flexible and open to discussion. In the end, I gave them my business and came away very pleased. I possibly overegged how rigorous I was being about checks (HPI etc) because I am used to buying privately. I found PJ Nicholls patient with me and once I actually arrived to meet Simon in person at the dealership, my worries about being swindled vanished. Just briefly about the car itself, it functionally speaking has very nearly all the added extras you can think of. My cousin's '10 Audi A4 SC that we arrived in only just keeps up with all the mod-cons in my Fiesta (bar Bluetooth!) and costs a heck of a lot more. That being said, you don't beat Audi for luxurious design. My fiesta is trendy and fun inside but there's a lot less leather..... To wrap up I'd just say thanks to the guys for sticking with me through all my checks. Highly recommended.

Great overall experience; very helpful and understanding,

My experience at PJ Nicholls Pershore was positive because of the salesman Jon. I had previously visited another dealer in Malvern for a test drive and didn't like the car. Their salesman made no effort to engage with me further (he was on his smartphone!) I then went to Pershore PJ to test drive a car. Didn't like the car but Jon took the time to help me establish what sort of car could work for me (I had just changed job from being on the road every day to working locally). He suggested other vehicles to test drive and even brought one across from Evesham for me to try. He was completely instrumental in my decision to buy from you rather than elsewhere.
