Ford tops and tails Mondeo engine range

The changes, which bring the total number of powertrain options to 14, see the line-up further extended with a new 208bhp bi-turbo 2.0-litre TDCi diesel engine; fuel-efficient new 1.5-litre TDCi diesel engine; and Intelligent All-Wheel Drive technology for optimised traction and performance.

‘With the full range of powertrains now rolling off the production line at our state-of-the-art plant in Valencia, Spain, Ford now offers the widest ever choice for Mondeo customers,’ said Roelant de Waard, vice president, marketing, sales & service, Ford of Europe.

Named International Engine of the Year in 2014 for three times in a row, the 123bhp 1.0-litre EcoBoost engine core EcoBoost technologies including high-pressure direct fuel injection, and Twin-independent Variable Cam Timing. In the Mondeo it delivers 55.4mpg and 119g/km CO2 emissions and is priced from £19,995.

Meanwhile, Ford’s new bi-turbo 2.0-litre TDCi engine delivers 208bhp and 332lb.ft of torque – available from 2000rpm – with CO2 emissions of 124g/km and 58.8 mpg. The new engine is combined with Ford’s six-speed PowerShift twin-clutch automatic gearbox, and enables 0-62mph acceleration in 7.9 seconds, priced at £750 over the equivalent specification 180PS model.

Finally, Ford’s new 118bhp 1.5-litre TDCi diesel engine replaces the 113bhp 1.6-litre TDCi, reducing CO2 emissions by 5g/km to 104g/km with optimised combustion chamber design, new high-pressure fuel injection and Variable Nozzle Turbocharger technology whilst delivering 70.6mpg.

Mondeo customers can now also specify Intelligent All-Wheel Drive with the 148bhp 2.0-litre TDCi diesel engine and six-speed manual transmission, or 178bhp 2.0-litre TDCi diesel engine and six-speed PowerShift automatic transmission. The Intelligent All-Wheel Drive system is offered at £1,500 over the equivalent front-wheel drive model.

The new models are available to order in April for summer delivery.
