2010 Ford Mondeo receives new engines

Article by Christian Andrei, on August 29, 2010

Ford has given the Mondeo a boost by revamping its powertrain, adding an Ecoboost turbocharged petrol motor to its lineup, improving the diesel lineup and offering its dual-clutch Powershift transmission on the model for the first time.

The new 2.0-litre Ecoboost unit has an output of 200bhp at 5500rpm, and produces 221lb ft of torque between 1750rpm and 4500rpm.

The Mondeo can go from zero to 62mph in 7.9 sec and can reach a speed of 144mph (141mph for the estate). The unit, which is equipped with Ford's dual-clutch transmission as standard equipment, also returns up to 36.6mpg and has CO2 emissions of only 179g/km.

As a result, the vehicle has 25% more power but is 19% cleaner than the old 2.3-liter auto when it comes to carbon emissions.

Ford will also tweak the Duratorq TDCI diesel motors, generating 113bhp/221lb ft, 138bhp/236lb ft and 161bhp/251lb ft. Ford asserts that the units all generate 53.2mpg. Since this matches old Mondeo Econetic, that model has been junked.

The Powershift dual-clutch gearbox is offered as an option on the 138bhp and 161bhp diesel models. It brings down fuel economy slightly on both cars, to 50.4mpg.

The Ecoboost Mondeos is priced from £22,095, while the diesels start at £18,995 for the 113bhp unit and £19,895 for the 161bhp model.
