Less than a week after General Motors cancelled plans to bring their Chevrolet Orlando mini-minivan to the United States, Ford announced that their C-Max 7-seater will make the trip across the Atlantic. Built in Valencia, Spain, the C-Max features rear-sliding doors and can be had with either a 1.6L or 2.0L Ecoboost motor. Expect the 200hp 2.0L variant to be offered for sale here. Ford is staking its bets on North Americans adopting smaller vehicles, and GM could conceivably bring the Orlando to the U.S., as it will be sold in Canada, which has identical vehicle standards to its Southern neighbor.
