Ford has been delayed the launch of the new Mondeo in UK… but for good reasons. The new Ford Mondeo (known to us now as the 2013 Ford Fusion) was supposed to hit UK dealers last month, but the model has now been pushed back until September.
According to a Ford spokesperson, the delay is due to Ford working ‘through various issues to ensure a robust and high-quality launch’. That forced Ford to move back production from April to later date at its Genk, Belgium plant.

The engine lineup includes a 2.5-liter naturally aspirated inline-4 with 170-hp and 170 lb-ft of torque, mated to a 6-speed automatic transmission.
