The 2018MY C-MAX USOB (Unscheduled Order Bank) is due to open on 07/17/2017. The 2018 C-MAX Order Guide will be uploaded to the Order Guide Section as soon as it is released to Dealers. It's usually available on or about the day that the USOB opens but there are sometimes delays if Ford is still finalizing the ordering specifications, etc.

Our Dealer Principal and I met with our Ford representative to do our new wholesale for vehicle allocation. While there has been no official announcement from Ford, our Ford representative informed us that the C-MAX Energi (plug-in) is no longer available for the 2018 Model Year! Guess that explains why they never released an order guide for the 2018 C-MAX Energi!

So, I assume the C Max is discontinued on this date (4-27-18). I love my C max!
The C max has outsold the Chevy Volt by over hundred units this year to date.

Yes. Its replacement is probably something in the new Model E family. No idea when we might see it though.

Oops I meant C-Max. At least you won’t go 3 for 3.

Seriously - it sucks that you don’t have a more stable work situation. Do you know yet if you’re coming back for Ranger/Bronco?
