The 2010 Ford Mondeo - new engines and a new 'box
Back in February, in the run-up to this year’s Geneva Motor Show, Ford let us know that it was planning on fitting new engines to the Mondeo for 2010, including the new 2.0 litre turbo EcoBoost. And now we have full details – and the prices.
The 2.0 litre EcoBoost boasts advanced combustion enabling it to offer more power for less emissions – and more frugally. It boasts 200bhp, 179g/km CO2, 36.6 mpg and a 0-60mph of around 7.7 seconds. These figures are more than credible and offer an improvement of 19% in emissions over the old 2.3 litre in the Mondeo, whilst delivering 25% more power.
But despite the impressive figures for the EcoBoost it’s the diesel engines that are the big sellers in the Mondeo, so a significantly improved 2.0 litre Duratorq TDCi is probably of more interest these days. Now available in three flavours – 113bhp, 138bhp and 161bhp – the new engines get new injectors – and a higher pressure – to deliver average fuel consumption of 53.2 mpg and average emissions across the range of 139g/km. In fact so efficient are these new Duratorq engines that Ford is dropping the Econetic Mondeo from the range.
The final change for the Ford Mondeo for the 2010 / 2011 models is the gearbox. Although the diesels get a six-speed manual as standard the new EcoBoost boasts Ford’s PowerShift six-speed, double-wet-clutch ‘box, which can also be specified on the 138bhp and 161bhp diesels.
A very good car just got better.
