2011 Ford Mondeo revealed
27th June, 2010
Ford of Europe will debut its stylish and
technologically advanced new Mondeo at the 2010 Moscow Motor Show on 25th August 2010. The new model
features a restyled exterior and uprated interior, new high-efficiency Ford EcoBoost petrol and TDCi
diesel powertrains, plus a host of new driver comfort and convenience features and safety
The first official preview image show that, following similar updates to the Ford S-MAX and Galaxy
models earlier this year, the new Mondeo is the latest to benefit from the continuing evolution of
Ford kinetic design.
"The Ford Mondeo is already a very strong package and, with the significant design changes and
in particular the comprehensive array of new technologies we are introducing, we have no doubt that
the new model will strengthen Mondeo's position as the flagship Ford model in our European
line-up," said John Fleming, Ford of Europe chairman and CEO. "This is the smartest, safest,
most environmentally friendly and best quality Mondeo we have ever launched, and it completes the
regeneration of our CD segment range in 2010."
Smart design, enhanced quality
Key exterior changes include distinctive new grilles featuring a bolder lower trapezoid and a slim,
stylish opening above, plus an enhanced bonnet profile. New front bumpers include LED daytime running
lights, and re-designed rear lights also employ LED technology. Additionally, a new rear deck lid
treatment matches the revised rear light profile.
The interior is also upgraded and features a new flow-through centre console design, revised door
treatment featuring flush and integrated door release handles, and a new central overhead console with
ambient lighting. New trim materials across the range have been selected to enhance the premium
interior feel of the new Ford Mondeo.
New Mondeo's interior also benefits from a range of new features, including the introduction of LED
courtesy lights and a new satellite navigation system, while music lovers will be able to enjoy the
new Premium Sound System option which incorporates a 265-watt, eight-channel amplifier unit, all-new
speaker system and large, 17-litre subwoofer.
Higher performance, more technology
The launch of the new Mondeo will see the first application of a higher performance 240 PS version
of the efficient 2.0 litre Ford EcoBoost turbocharged petrol engine. This will be complemented by the
existing 203 PS version of this engine launched in Mondeo, new S-MAX and new Galaxy earlier this
While the new 240 PS engine provides extra performance, average CO2 emissions are targeted to be
just 179 g/km, the same as the 203 PS unit, regardless of bodystyle. Ford EcoBoost technology also
provides fuel consumption and emissions reductions of up to 20 per cent compared to traditional
petrol engines of a similar capacity.
Another first for the new Mondeo is the introduction of the comprehensively revised 2.2 litre Ford
Duratorq TDCi engine, which boasts a 12 per cent power increase to 200 PS, making it the most powerful
Duratorq diesel engine to date. The Mondeo TDCi line-up sees this new engine joined by a significantly
improved 2.0 litre Duratorq TDCi diesel that has already been introduced to the European Mondeo range
earlier this year. This engine is available with 115, 140 or 163 PS power ratings, with all of them
delivering an average CO2 emission of just 139 g/km with a six-speed manual transmission, regardless
To make these powertrains even more efficient, a number of new Ford ECOnetic Technologies are now
made available, including Smart Regenerative Charging, Ford Eco Mode and – a Ford first – an Active
Grille Shutter system. This electronically controlled device regulates the airflow through the
radiator and engine compartment to reduce aerodynamic drag, but also offers benefits to the engine
heating characteristics to improve fuel economy and warm-up performance in cold weather.
Powertrain advances in the new Ford Mondeo also extend to the transmission: the latest six-speed
Ford PowerShift double wet-clutch transmission system comes as standard for Ford EcoBoost petrol
engines, and will be available as an option for the 140 PS and 163 PS versions of the 2.0 litre
The new Mondeo range will include a comprehensive array of driver assistance features, many of
which are appearing for the first time in a Ford model, including Lane Departure Warning, Driver
Alert and Auto High Beam. New features already introduced in the latest S-MAX and Galaxy models are
now extended to the Mondeo range, including the Blind Spot Information System, Speed Limiter, Rear
Door Power Child Locks and Rear View Camera.

anticipated in Q1 2011.
