New Ford Mondeo Gets Ready for Europe
To start, it's enough to say the engine offering on the new Mondeo is a bit juicier, with the carmaker giving existing units a bit more power and adding a new engine as well. The engines which will be carried over from the existing version are the two versions of the 2.0l EcoBoost, whose power has been slightly increased.
The novelty to the range is the 2.2l Ford Duratorq TDCi engine, developing 200 ps or, for those in love with statistics, the most powerful Duratorq to date. The current 2.0l Duratorq TDCi diesel, with its three different power levels, will also transition to the new version (115, 140 or 163 ps).
Visually, not much has changed in terms of overall design, but the little additions and restyling of some elements bring a touch of novelty. The most striking of all are the new grilles, new front bumpers with LED daytime running lights and LED rear lights.
"The new Mondeo completes the very comprehensive update of our European family of flagship large cars which we started earlier this year when we launched the new Ford S-MAX and Galaxy models. New designs, powertrains and technologies deliver greater driving pleasure and lower CO2 emissions, as well as a more premium feel and even more comfort and safety,” the carmaker says in a statement.
