    No? Only the fgx. I've also seen a '72 combi van, and a black and brown tabby cat. Oh, and a HB pencil, sharpened.

    Lol, I love it when people trot out this line....

    Fgx fans would have us believe it morphs into a different beast in real life....

    Like I said on aff, I've never seen Jen Hawkins or gina rinehart in real life. Still pretty damn sure which one is more attractive.

    I must disagree with you - Jen looks better.

    I've seen cars that looks great in a picture and then look retarded in real life and vice versa.

    I was going to say who Gina Rhineheart?

    Then I realised it was me who I'm quoting as I changed my avatar and didn't recognise myself

    Is there any talk of an ST version of the Mondeo such as the XR5 we had once upon a time?

    2015 Ford Mondeo specifications and engine details revealed

    by Tim Beissmann
    New Cars Editor



    Ford Australia has released detailed specifications of the new 2015 Ford Mondeo, which will become the most technologically advanced model in its local showrooms when it arrives in February.

    The 2015 Mondeo will be available with three 2.0-litre four-cylinder turbocharged engines, including low- and high-output versions of an EcoBoost petrol motor and a single tune of a TDCi diesel.

    The low-output petrol engine produces 149kW of power and 345Nm of torque, while the high-output unit is bumped up to 177kW (torque remains 345Nm). The diesel puts out 132kW and 400Nm.

    All three compare favourably with the outgoing Mondeo’s engine range, which includes a 118kW/208Nm 2.3-litre petrol, a 149kW/300Nm 2.0-litre turbo petrol, and a 120kW/340Nm diesel.

    Entry-level Mondeo Ambiente variants (hatch and wagon) get the 149kW petrol engine while the mid-level Trend and high-grade Titanium (both hatch only) get the 177kW tune. All come standard with a six-speed automatic transmission, while combined cycle fuel consumption ranges from 8.2 to 8.5 litres per 100 kilometres depending on spec and body style.

    The Ford Mondeo diesel will be one of the most fuel efficient cars in Australia’s medium segment, boasting a fuel consumption rating of 5.1-5.3L/100km – undercutting the Mazda 6 diesel (5.4L/100km) and even the petrol-electric Toyota Camry Hybrid (5.2L/100km).



    The diesel engine will be offered in all three trim grades in both hatch and wagon body styles. It’s paired with a six-speed dual-clutch automatic transmission.

    Ford has also announced detailed equipment lists for each variant. See our model-by-model breakdown below for the latest information.

    The company says pricing details will be announced closer to the car’s local launch, though it’s expected to largely mirror the positioning of the outgoing model, which costs between $31,490 and $48,490.

    The Mondeo will become Ford Australia’s flagship passenger model following the demise of the Falcon in October 2016. It will straddle the medium/large segments and will not be supplemented by the likes of the US-market Taurus.

    Is 400Nm good in this day and age for a diesel of this size? Where's Damo? I'm sure that's a decent figure. I drove one of those VW wagons with 340Nm ages ago and it too had the dual clutch box. I thoroughly enjoyed it and the torque was impressive. Torque steer will be an issue for those frightened of the steering wheel shaking a bit, heart breaking stuff.

    Considering the weight of the Mondeo this equates to almost BA XR6T torque levels. Half the power although with a superior box, but alas, where can you speed these days, it pisses me off enough I need to slow down to 80 in school zones.

    That wagon doesn't look bad at all. I think I like it.

    I'm assuming they're running with the same 2L PSA diesel engine my Focus has still, I believe they switched over to Bosch injection and management system with a smaller turbo for the Mondeo a little while back in the UK rather than the crappy Siemens stuff my one runs as the injection system is the limitation on these engines, which is why the LW TDCI Focus only had a smallish increase in power and no more torque over the LV.

    I think 400NM isn't bad but BMW takes the cake for 4/6 cylinder Euro diesel engines 150KW/400NM out of their 2L diesel engine and Kia/Hyundai are both up there with 145KW/436NM from 2.2L. Forget about Honda with their limp wristed 1.6L diesel engine in the Civic, and the i30 diesel isn't much better.

    The best thing about diesel cars is at part throttle and low revs it feels like the car is much faster/more powerful than it actually is, its nice having your peak torque at 2000 RPM in a daily driver.

    Why is this car better looking in pictures now than it used to be?
    History is a statement, the future is a question.
