Seen a prototype of the new Ford MondeoDecember 11, 2018
The appearance of the new Ford Mondeo does not change much, but the technical part of it is waiting for significant changes. The novelty will go on sale in the spring or summer of 2019.
The American automobile brand has new versions of the Fiesta and Focus models, which are already on sale in the Old World. In addition, sales of the third model, which does not belong to the SUV segment, will soon start there. This is a mid-size Mondeo, which is the flagship brand in Europe.
It was rumored that the leadership of Ford could completely remove the Mondeo forever.
Judging by the “spy” photos that appeared at the disposal of our editorial a couple of minutes ago, the updated version of the model is almost ready for production. Home sales are scheduled for spring or summer 2019.
Mondeo will receive slightly modified bumpers and new graphics for the rear lights, and … that’s all. Much more important changes are hidden in the cabin. In particular, the gearshift lever will be replaced by a rotary selector, the look of the climate control unit will change. Everything else seems almost unchanged. The car will receive the new generation Ford SYNC3 infotainment system.
There are rumors about the appearance of a new automatic transmission. It will replace the current 6-speed dual-clutch gearbox. Under the hood will be updated diesel engines of the EcoBlue family, as well as a 1.5-liter 3-cylinder EcoBoost from the Focus.
Recently it became known that the Ford C-Max and Grand C-Max will leave Europe.
