Ford has started the development of the new Ford Mondeo which will become a” world car” just like the Fiesta and Focus are planned to be. Riding on a new platform, named “CD4”, the Mondeo will be the first of new Fords to use this platform. Others expected to use this platform are both the next generation Ford Fusion and Lincoln MKZ mid size sedans.
Expect the styling to take a lot of cues and inspiration from the new Focus, or as Ford like to call it, the Kinetic” design. The new Mondeo is planned to come in three different body styles this time: sedan, wagon and as a 4-door coupe. This mule is wearing the current European Mondeo body and it will have nothing in common with the new design.
Power is likely to come from the new four-cylinder Ford EcoBoost turbo engines with different output as well as a range of diesel engines. Of course there will be also be a hybrid version, no manufacturer can be without hybrid versions today.
