The all-newFord Mondeo is set to be unveiled at the Paris Auto Show at the end of September, but the first details on the car have been unveiled today at Ford’s "Go Further" brand event.

As promised, the car has been inspired by Ford’s latest design language previewed by the Evos Concept launched at the 2011 Frankfurt Motor Show. These elements include a new, more prominent trapezoidal grille, a power-dome bonnet and segment-first adaptive, full LED headlamps. In fact the new Mondeo is the first Ford to feature headlamps with LED high-beam, low-beam and signal lighting.

Under the hood Ford has placed the company’s new 1.0-litre EcoBoost petrol engine and for the first time Mondeo will be offered in a hybrid version that combines a 2.0-litre petrol engine with a 35kW lithium-ion battery.

Also, as a first, Mondeo will offer segment-first SYNC with MyFord Touch, a voice-activated in-car connectivity system that delivers an eight-inch color touchscreen and the ability to act as a WiFi hotspot for up to five devices.

The new Mondeo will go on sale in early 2013.

2016 Ford Mondeo ST-Line

2016 Ford Mondeo ST-Line

A sporty variant for the Mondeo range

With the Goodwood Festival of Speed now in full force, Ford has revealed the new Mondeo ST-Line alongside models like the Ford Fiesta ST-Line and the Focus ST-Line. According to Ford, the new Mondeo ST-Line offers “bold styling that’s inspired by Ford Performance models” to go with a sport suspension system, unique alloy wheels, sport seats, and other minor enhancements inside and out.

Roelant de Waard, the Vice President of Marketing, Sales, and Service for Ford of Europe, said, “The new Mondeo ST-Line is our sportiest Mondeo since we introduced the Mondeo ST220 model in 2002. Mondeo ST-Line adds another dimension to the broad Mondeo line-up that offers options from the fuel-efficient Mondeo ECOnetic and Mondeo Hybrid models, to the exclusive and upscale Mondeo Vignale.” He continued, “With our new ST-Line range even more customers can experience the sporty style and driving dynamics inspired by our most exciting Ford Performance line-up ever."

So, with the Fiesta ST-Line and Focus ST-Line already on sale, it looks like Ford is expecting the Mondeo ST-Line to pull anchor duty and help push the brand’s sale of performance models to the next level. Does the Mondeo ST-Line have what it takes to bolster performance model sales, or will it be just another turd in the punch bowl? Keep reading to find out what I think.

2014 Ford Mondeo Vignale

2014 Ford Mondeo Vignale

The growing market for up-scale sedans has prompted a lot of automakers to step up their game in order to keep up with the times. European car brands have no need to worry because these models are already part of their vehicular lineups.

But for an American brand, like Ford, looking to gain some traction in a market ripe with premium competitors, it needed to step up.

And step up it did.

At the 2013 Frankfurt Auto Show, Ford will introduce the Mondeo Vignale Concept, a premium and luxurious take of its European midsize sedan. The concept is Ford’s answer to calls from customers asking to see if the Blue Oval can offer them a vehicle that answers their checklist of styling and quality, advanced technology, and exclusivity.

For the most part, Ford has answered that call with the intention of bringing the Vignale Concept to production in the near future, making it only a matter of time before it enters a market ripe with competition and stakes a name for itself.

Range Rover Evoque Tears Through a Mondeo Police Car During a High-Speed Chase

Range Rover Evoque Tears Through a Mondeo Police Car During a High-Speed Chase

Trying to stop a Range Rover driving at a speed of 150 km/h (93 mph) is not always a good move. Three French police officers have learned it in the most tragic way, as two of them - age 32 and 40 - were killed and the third one, aged 54, was seriously injured.

First details suggest that the police officers were chasing the Range Rover for multiple infractions of the road. The police car - a Ford Mondeo - tried to block the SUV, which apparently had no intention to stop and the impact was of a "rare violence."

The Range Rover driver - age 22 - has a pretty hefty criminal record, as he was involved multiple small thefts and drug trafficking, and was arrested five times for driving offenses. Initial reports suggest that during this incident he was under influence and medical reports revealed 1.4 grams of alcohol per liter of blood, while the limit is 0.5 grams / liter of blood. He was also without driving license.

2014 Ford Mondeo Wagon

2014 Ford Mondeo Wagon

The next generation Ford Mondeo - sold as the Fusion on the US market - was first caught testing as a sedan, but our spy photographers have recently spotted the wagon version testing in the snowy Alps in Europe. It’s still not clear if the wagon version will be offered in the U.S., but in Europe it’s the most sold variant of the Mondeo.

Despite the camouflage covering the wagon, you can easily notice that the next Mondeo will be borrowing design elements from the Evos Concept launched at the 2011 Frankfurt Motor Show.

The new model is set for an official release in 2013-2014, so there’s still no word on what will be hiding under the hood. That being said, it will probably carry the usual array of 4- and 6-cylinder engines, with a hybrid version popping up shortly after the release as well.

Will this generation be the one to convince Americans that wagons are the way to go? Probably not, but the Cadillac CTS-V Wagon may open the doors enough for other wagons to benefit.

China’s Ford Mondeo to see EcoBoost Technology: EcoBoost goes global

2007 ford mondeo

Yesterday, we talked about Ford’s EcoBoost technology in their Start Concept. Now at the Beijing Auto Show, Ford has announced that they will also include their EcoBoost Technology in Europe’s Ford Mondeo. The Mondeo will receive the 2.0L I4 EcoBoost engine mated with the new Ford Powershift six speed automatic transmission. This single turbocharger with a direct fuel injection delivery system delivers torque comparable to a V6 engine while fuel economy is boosted by 10%.

“Customers have embraced EcoBoost technology because of its ability to deliver power and performance with uncompromised fuel economy,” said Derrick Kuzak, Ford group vice president for global product development. “We’re committed to bringing this technology to multiple vehicles so that more customers can take advantage of the no-compromise Ford EcoBoost combination of power, performance and fuel economy. Ford EcoBoost works in any gasoline engine, so adding a 4-cylinder engine to complement our V6 line-up was a logical development.”

Along with that announcement, Ford also announced that the 2.0L I4 EcoBoost will be the first EcoBoost engine to go global with the 1.6L and the 4 cylinder following shortly thereafter. They have already revealed the Europen lineup featuring the 2.0L engine: Ford S-Max, Galaxy, and Mondeo will start off the transition. The Ford Edge will receive the engine later this year while Australia’sFord Falcon will inherit the 4 cylinder engine in 2011.

This announcement comes as no surprise to us. We figured Ford would be running full steam ahead with this technology that cuts CO2 emissions by 15% compared to larger displacement engines with similar power. Cutting CO2 emissions seems to be an important trend and we are sure Ford will be taking advantage of that as any other automaker would.

2010 Ford Mondeo Titanium ECOnetic

2010 Ford Mondeo Titanium ECOnetic

There are plenty of cars from around the world that never go on sale here in the U.S. market, one of them is the shapely Euro only Ford Mondeo. While the Mondeo was previously a true world car, being sold around the globe, the full size family car hasn’t been sold in America for almost a decade. Aside from missing out on the attractive styling of the fourth generation Mondeo, we are also missing out on Ford U.K.’s latest economical offer. The Ford Mondeo Titanium ECOnetic is a next generation turbo diesel powered family sedan that offers outstanding fuel mileage at a very affordable price, not to mention a few stylish options.

The ECOnetic part of the Mondeo’s nameplate comes from the car’s 2.0 Liter TDCi power plant that produces a maximum output of 115 HP that with the help of an optimal gear indicator helps the turbo diesel Mondeo to get an estimated average of 54.3 MPG. These numbers alone would be impressive for any vehicle, but when you consider that the new Mondeo ECOnetic is available with a set of stylish lightweight 16 or 17 inch rims, a lowered suspension as well as an optimized aero package complete with air deflectors and a rear spoiler all aimed at reducing fuel mileage robbing parasitic loss from heavy spinning items and aerodynamic drag that acts like a parachute pulling the car back from its intended direction of travel. In addition to all the items that make the ECOnetic Mondeo so great, the price trumps tem all; starting at only £23,295 for the space saving five door model and £24,545 for the estate.

The Ford Mondeo is one of those ultra-sleek sedans that we all hope will be part of the cars that Ford will bring over from Europe. The Ford Mondeo Combi is a family car that doesn’t need a tuning kit or any improvement. Still, this didn’t stop Rieger Tuning, in cooperation with SG-Design, created a new look for the vehicle. The new kit consists in a front lip spoiler, new side sills, a roof spoiler and a new rear spoiler featuring a 4-pipe exhaust system with integrated carbon fiber air diffuser.

European Fords Coming to U.S. – Possibly Mondeo?

European Fords Coming to U.S. – Possibly Mondeo?

Ford sees its future in small cars, but it won’t have to reach far to get them. It seems that the blue oval is considering converting some truck plants to begin producing cars with better fuel efficiency. While this means spending cash to re-tool manufacturing facilities, the investment will not be as great because much of the engineering has already been worked out as these cars are already on the road in Europe. Ford is keeping quiet about which cars may make the move, but creditable rumors indicate that one car being considered is the Mondeo(pictured above). Ford is not expected to make an official comment on the full plan until after it releases an earnings report on Thursday.

Ford has tried in the past to get the U.S. to drive European Fords. In the 70s Ford imported the little Fiesta and sporty Capri, in the 80s it created the Merkur brand to sell European offerings, and in the 90s the Ford Contour/Mercury Mystique was a copy of the Mondeo. These cars never found a clear audience on these shores. Even the Mondeo, which is a bestseller in Europe, was seen as too small to be an effective family car when it was first here. Ford’s best success story for a popular car on both sides of the pond, so far, has been the Focus.

But that may also be in part because the U.S. and U.K. versions are two very different drives.

The good news for drivers is that Ford’s European offerings are known to be a lot more responsive and fun to drive. Top Gear (TV) even named the current Mondeo as one of their cars of the year.

2012 Ford Mondeo Coupe

2012 Ford Mondeo Coupe

Ford is working on a four-door coupe version of its successful Mondeo. It will be a sportier car, that will compete with cars like Volkswagen Passat CC and Mercedes CLS. The car is expected to go on sale in 2012.

The coupe version will be unveiled after the sedan will receive its facelift in 2010.

The Mondeo Coupe will feature frameless side windows, vertical air vents behind the front wheels, finned C-pillars, translucent 3D tail lights, adjustable seats and the new black panel MMI touchscreen interface.

Of course the coupe will be much more expensive than the regular sedan, but for those money you will receive better technology: a start-stop system that will help reducing consumption and emissions, adaptive cruise control that can recognize speed limits, park system and many other goodies.

Under the hood Ford will place the best engines currently found in the Mondeo: the 175bhp 2.2-litre diesel from the Titanium X Sport model and a turbocharged 217bhp 2.5-litre petrol five-cylinder. The engine will be mated to a six-speed manual transmission, but an option Ford will also offer the new Powershift double-clutch gearbox.

Prices are expected to be in the $50.000 range.

Ford Mondeo, S-Max and Galaxy get new diesel engines

Ford announced that for the 2009 model year the Mondeo, S-MAX and Galaxy will get a new high performance 2.2-litre diesel engine and sporty new versions of the popular ’Titanium’ series.

the new 2.2-litre Duratorq TDCi is the largest displacement and most powerful diesel engine available in Ford of Europe’s passenger cars. It gives a sustained 400 Nm of torque at 1,750rpm and 420 Nm of transient overboost provides the necessary power for brisk and confident overtaking manoeuvres. Maximum power of 175 PS is delivered at just 3,500rpm.

"The ’Titanium’ series features and styling details complement perfectly the ’kinetic design’ elements of both vehicles, and with over 50 per cent of customers ordering this series, we know it is a success," said Adams. "Now, with the sporty Titanium S we have added more overt styling elements and features to create a new and individual series derivative."
