2010 Ford Mondeo comes with better fuel economy, lower emissions and improved performance mostly thanks to high efficiency Ford EcoBoost petrol-injection turbo and upgraded Ford Duratorq TDCi diesel engines now available for sale.

The newly developed 2.0-litre Ford EcoBoost petrol engine delivers 203PS and the significantly improved 2.0-litre TDCi diesels with 115, 140 and an impressive 163PS version.

Furthermore, the car features Ford PowerShift – six-speed dual-clutch transmission system, which delivers smooth and fast gear change. Currently, Ford Mondeo has a leading position within its segment and now it is secured with the enhancements.

"These new powertrains are responsive and refined – ideally suited to Mondeo's acclaimed driving enjoyment, yet without sacrificing economy or CO2 performance.", commented Jon Gunn-Smith, Ford large cars product manager.

The 2.0-litre EcoBoost has an advanced combustion system which brings new levels of performance and fuel efficiency to petrol units in this power range. The power unit features lightweight all-aluminium construction, a high-pressure direct-injection system, low-inertia turbocharging and twin-independent variable cam timing.

The result is maximum power of 203 PS at 5 500rpm and maximum torque of 300 Nm delivered across a 1 750 – 4 500rpm range. The car accelerates from 0 to 100 km/h in 7.9 seconds and top speed of 232 mph (144 mph). The fuel efficiency is amazing - 36.6mpg and average CO2 emission of just 179g/km.

There are three diesel powered engines in the range. The choice is between – 115, 140 and 163PS all delivered by the improved 2.0-litre Ford Duratorq TDCi. The engine meets Stage V emission regulations. It features new solenoid fuel injectors, now with eight smaller holes, a maximum injection pressure of 2 000 bar for improved fuel atomization. Ford Duratorq TDCi delivers staggering fuel consumption - 53.2mpg and an average CO2 emission of 139g/km.

Last, Ford PowerShift system is six-speed, double-wet-clutch transmission, which is an excellent match for both the new Ford EcoBoost petrol direct-injection and Ford Duratorq TDCi common-rail diesel engines. PowerShift comes as standard with the new 2.0-litre EcoBoost engine and as an option for both 140 and 163PS 2.0-litre Duratorq TDCi units.
