The first great shot of the Ford B-Max's interior has made its way to us from our trusty spy photogs.
Our spy photogs have been working diligently bringing us the latest photos of new models testing out on the open road. This photo was snapped of the Ford B-Max's interior, the first nice shot of the American automobile's new control panel and layout. The prototype seen in the photo is the near-production model that we expect later this year as a 2012 model. We have seen several photos of the B-Max's exterior during testing but this is the clearest shot yet of what is lurking inside the new Ford.
Power will come from Ford's new 1.0-liter turbocharged three-cylinder EcoBoost that, according to Ford group vice president of Global Product Development, Derrick Kuzak, "will deliver horsepower and torque outputs equivalent to or better than most normally aspirated 1.6-liter gasoline engines." Sounds good, but it appears it's not heading to the U.S. for cost reasons. Europeans and other countries are used to and don't mind paying more for a smaller car, whereas many Americans would balk at the price Ford would need to charge in order to make a profit.
