No this isn’t the new Ford Fusion… well, kind of. What you’re looking at here is the new 2013 Ford Mondeo for the European market. While it’s basically the same as the Ford Fusion, the Mondeo gets Ford’s new 1.0 liter 3-cylinder EcoBoost engine.
The new 2013 Ford Mondeo will be the largest Ford vehicle to be fitted with such a small displacement engine. The engine pumps out 123-hp and a maximum torque of 125 lb-ft or 147 lb-ft in ‘over boost’ mode.
The 1.0 liter 3-cylinder EcoBoost will replace the Mondeos 1.6 liter 4-cylinder engine that made 118-hp.
“Today’s smartest technology offers customers more from less,” said Barb Samardzich, vice president, Product Development of Ford of Europe. “This is as true of engines as it is of computers and smartphones, and by equipping the all-new Mondeo in Europe with our acclaimed 1.0-litre EcoBoost engine we are delivering cutting-edge technology that delivers a very real and tangible customer benefit.”
