New 2015 Ford S-Max Hybrid is coming.Ford has already set out to bring their S Max model to America in 2015 and now they are planning to expand their S-Max lineup with some hybrid power trains as well. They presented their concept for the hybrid vehicle at the Frankfurt Auto Show and are looking to materialize their concept sometime in 2015.
From the outside the new hybrid version will be featuring approximately the same body as the regular S-Max but we would certainly welcome a few upgrades as well. The aluminum hexagonal grille should remain, as well as the LED running head and tail lights. As for the wheels they might get an upgrade to 21-inch alloy ones.
As for the interior, the cabin will be filled with so fiber hampered interior and some leather upholstered seats that are high on comfort. Also some brand new high tech LED headlamps will make their way into the cabin. The Hybrid will come with only five seats, but do expect an ample amount of room around the cabin, as well as plenty head and legroom. From the high technology specter there will be plenty to satisfy the customer. The SYNC along with the MyFord Touch infotainment system, that provides connectivity with Bluetooth and WiFi. Some new safety features are expected to be included as well.
2015 Ford S-Max Hybrid Engine
There is no news about the engine yet. We can predict that he 2015 Ford S-Max Hybrid will probably run on a gasoline engine option aside from the electric one and these two should seamlessly blend in together. The petrol option could possibly be a 2.0-liter four-cylinder gasoline engine that is currently inside the new C-Max Hybrid. This engine produces up to 141 horsepower and 121 pound-feet of torque. Our prediction for the electric motor is a 1.4 kWh lithium-ion battery pack run motor. Combined with the petrol engine they should produce 188 horsepower together. For the gearbox Ford will probably use the CVT automatic transmission, preferably a six speed one. The desired fuel economy, which the new Hybrid should aspire to, is 24 in the city and 33 on the highway.
2015 Ford S-Max Hybrid Price and Release Date
The 2015 S-Max hybrid should be available for purchase sometime in 2015 and an official announcement is hopefully not that far behind. As for the price, expect it to be considerably pricy as it will be competing with competing with conventional petrol vehicles. So the starting price should be somewhere around $37.500.
