We have all the latest pictures and news from the new 2014 Ford Mondeo before its release date later this year.
It has already been delayed twice since the first reveal at the 2012 Paris Motorshow, but the new Ford Mondeo is still hotly anticipated. Ford has chosen the last quarter of this year to release the Mondeo and we are amongst many, hoping that it isn’t delayed again. Ford has matched the New Ford Mondeo to the Ford Focus, in that they will both benefit from a new sleeker more sophisticated front grille. Many onlookers say that it is very similar to the iconic Aston Martin grille, made famous by James Bond himself.
There are also plans for a Ford Mondeo Hybrid with less the 99g/km of CO2, with an mpg of over 65. The Mondeo Hybrid will have 188bhp thanks to the 2.0 Litre petrol engine unit combined with an efficient electric motor.

The Ford UK boss has recently confirmed that there will be zero delays to the Ford Mondeo’s Release here in the UK. He also explained that there will be an upmarket bespoke Ford Mondeo Vignale, which will compete with the BMW 3 Series. This Model is expected to be considerably more expensive. Now for the new Mondeo price, it is expected to be slightly cheaper than the current model starting at £15,500.
New Ford Mondeo Engines
The new Ford Mondeo get a brand spanking new 1.5 litre petrol EcoBoost engine, which shows similar figures to the 1.6 litre EcoBoost with regards to bhp and torque. The new 1.5 litre EcoBoost produces 148bhp and 240Nm of torque, this is the latest addition to Ford’s EcoBoost family which started with a 3.5 litre V6 EcoBoost engine.
New Ford Mondeo review
The new Mondeo to be released here in the UK will get Ford’s 1.0 litre 3-cylinder EcoBoost engine. This will make the new Ford Mondeo one of the cleanest cars in its class, CO2 emissions are under 130g/km. The other Engines will be revealed closer to the new Ford Mondeo release date, 1.5 litre and 2.0 litre TDCi diesel engines are expected to feature alongside a 1.0 litre, 1.5 litre and 2.0 litre petrol engines.
Ford will give you a choice of two different hybrid powertrains; the first is a standard version and the second is a new Plug-in (Ford’s first Plug-in Hybrid). This Plug-in version of the new Mondeo will known as the Ford Mondeo Energi, while the traditional hybrid will be simply called Mondeo hybrid. The Energi and Hybrid model will both share the same 2.0 litre four cylinder petrol engine, though the Energi will boast a larger battery pack, the battery power will give the Energi a range of around 20 miles when relying solely on battery power. The normal hybrid version will only be able to manage a few miles on its battery pack alone.
The Energi and the Hybrid will share the same amount of power at 185bhp, and hitting 0-62mph in just 8.5 seconds. You will see good fuel economy of around 60mpg for the Hybrid and 100mpg for the Energi. Ford will offer a six-speed manual gearbox for Hybrid and Energi, with an option of a dual-clutch six-speed Powershift gearbox. There will also be a diesel version of the automatic with the additional treat of four wheel drive; this is the first time Ford has completed this combination in a Ford Mondeo.
New Ford Mondeo Interior, Styling and dimensions
The new Ford Mondeo has a driver focused interior cabin with a premium finish, which includes soft touch plastics and fabric on the dash and doors. Seats are very supportive, there is also a larger than average centre console, this helps separate the driver from the rest of the car. There is now more space inside the new Mondeo, thanks to the dash being moved closer to the windscreen and the new seats make the most of the extra space available.
Ford has added a new super stylish grille and a new headlamp arrangement, which takes a little inspiration from the Evos concept car. This car paves the way for a new generation for Ford’s Kinetic design. Sparkling Led lights and polished exhausts add class to the new Ford Mondeo.
The 2014 Ford Mondeo measurements are 4,869mm long, 1,852mm wide and 1,476mm high-very similar to the current Ford Mondeo. The new Mondeo is 40mm lower, which means it appears to have a much sleeker profile. The new Mondeo has slimmer roof pillars for better visibility and the new body work is smoother than you could ever wish for. It also benefits from new 19” wheels to give the car some added presence, this will be available on the Zetec as an additional extra.
