Following its introduction on the facelifted S-MAX and Galaxy people carriers, Ford's European division is expanding the availability of the new 2.0 litre EcoBoost petrol engine that combines turbocharging and direct fuel injection to the Mondeo.
The 2.0 litre SCTi unit, which comes as standard with a six-speed PowerShift wet double-clutch gearbox, produces 203 horsepower at 5,500 rpm and 300 Nm of torque from 1,750 to 4,500 rpm. It propels the Mondeo saloon from 0 to 100km/h in 7.9 seconds (Station Wagon: 8.2 sec) with a top speed of 232 km/h (Station Wagon: 227 km/h). It returns a combined fuel economy of 7.7lt/100km.
In addition to the new Ecoboost powerplant, the MY2010 Mondeo also benefits from an upgraded 2.0-litre Duratorq TDCi diesel engine that has been reworked to match Stage V emission regulations in Europe. The diesel unit is offered in three flavors with 115HP, 140HP and a new variant with 163 HP. The two most powerful engines are also available with the optional PowerShift six-speed double-clutch transmission.
