Spyshots: 2011 Ford Mondeo Facelift
So far, we can see the facelifted version of the Mondeo will have a number of noticeable styling changes, including a new grill and a unique design of fog lamps and daylight driving lights.
Unlike what the first set of spyshots showed, we can also tell there will be a couple of enhancements brought to the rear side of the car, though the lamp housings are still covered. Furthermore, there is also the possibility of integrated LED lights for the rear.
The interiors will likely be the same as on the current model, although Ford might adjust the trim levels and equipment, so a bunch of new features might become available.
As for the engine configurations, the facelifted Ford Mondeo may also come available with the brand's 2.0-litre EcoBoost gasoline/petrol engine with 203 hp that is now featured in the Galaxy model.
However, the carmaker will also make available a line of diesels, including Ford's 2.0-litre TDCi engine tweaked to either 115, 140 or 163 hp.
The American carmaker also announced recently a mid-lifecycle technical enhancement for the Mondeo, with the sedan receiving the company’s Ecoboost turbocharged petrol engine, updated version of the Duratorq TDCI diesel units as well as the Powershift dual-clutch six speed transmission.
The 2011 Ford Mondeo facelift is expected to debut later this year, and we are putting our money on the Paris Auto Show this September.
