Ford will launch the all-new, 7-seat C-MAX in North America in late 2011 as a "whitespace" vehicle.
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.
