Ford C1 Platform
C1 is the name of a Ford Motors vehicle architecture designed to underpin compact cars and SUVs. It succeeds the Ford C170 and Mazda D platforms and marks the compact line of vehicles within Ford’s portfolio.
This platform is currently still in production for vehicles sold under the Ford nameplate worldwide. However, it is currently being phased out for the newer Ford C2 platform. Here are the Ford vehicles currently sold in the U.S. that ride on the Ford C1 platform:
There are currently no expected new models for the Ford C1 platform.
The Ford Focus will be phased out in the U.S. and Canada at the end of the 2019 model year. The Ford Escape and the Lincoln MKC (becomes Lincoln Corsair) will migrate over to the Ford C2 platform for the 2020 model year.
Until further notice, the Ford Transit Connect continues to be offered in the U.S. and Canada under the Ford C1 platform.
