"Like all technology systems Driver assistance offered by Ford, they are not designed to take away the overall responsibility of the driver. They do however provide valuable support and contribute to higher levels of driver comfort and confidence, "said Rolf Deges.

It is significant that all new technologies introduced by the new Ford Mondeo also be shared simultaneously with the last S-MAX and Galaxy.

New Lane Departure Warning

This system uses the camera looks to the future to continuously monitor the road and assess how the car is compared to brands Lane. If it detects that a wheel is approaching a lane marking, the driver is warned about this by a vibration in the steering wheel and is able to take evasive action.

This evaluation is performed using an electric motor with an asymmetrical mass that generates vibrations, and transmits them to the wheel. If the driver uses the turn indicator or driving situation suggests a change in the particular path, warning removed. The sensitivity of the system has an adjustment in two stages to meet driver's preference, while warning the intensity can also be modified to meet unique flavor pilot.

Lane Departure Warning system is switched off at speeds below 60 km / h (37 mph), and a distraction for the city and can also be manually disabled if desired.

New Driver Alert

Also, if the calculated level of consciousness is below a predetermined point - for example, if the driver is tired or even potentially fall into micro-sleep - beeps and advice on the dashboard of the driver taking a break.

New Car beam

The new system maximizes the use of the installation of the beam headlights to improve visibility of the driver significantly overnight. It also allows the use of forward-looking camera for detecting light sources in advance, and in case of oncoming vehicles, automatically shuts off the light beam to avoid glare.

In addition, the system detects the red tail lights ahead, even those with low luminance, providing drivers in front are not distracted by the beam of light shining in their rear view mirrors. The beam is also automatically disabled in urban areas.

Blind Spot Information System

This radar-based system encourages the driver to be more precise, when the control of passing vehicles with a notice of any blind areas adjacent to the vehicle and left and right side of the vehicle.

Module uses two multiple beam radar located at the outer corner of the rear bumper, which identify vehicles entering an area defined blind spot and illuminates an LED in the corresponding mirror. This offers the driver a strong visual warning that a vehicle is nearby.

Defined blind spot side mirror covers about three meters behind the vehicle with the lateral area of ​​about three meters in the same way. The system operates automatically from a speed of 10 km / h - a range much wider than other similar systems on the market.

Speed ​​limiters

It is designed to help the driver to set a speed limit of the election, when the vehicle then inadvertently avoid overtaking. Regardless of the current speed, with speed limiters the driver can select a maximum speed (eg appropriate limit city limits of speed or rate of temporary work) in which the accelerator pedal n 'accept without comment. The driver can drive the car normally until the previously selected speed.

The display panel allows the driver information on the reference speed and system status. If necessary, the system can be overridden by the accelerator pedal kick-down.

Power child locks Backdoor

This includes a DVD player under the front passenger seat, two seven-inch integrated LCD display behind the front seat headrests, an infrared remote control and two infrared headphones.

More benefits: the 2.0-liter Ford EcoBoost

The new global family of Ford's EcoBoost engines with direct injection, turbocharging and variable two valves to optimize combustion efficiency, fuel consumption and lower CO2 emissions by up to 20 percent compared to gasoline engines similar conventional power.

Core strategy behind Ford's EcoBoost program is to achieve a small gasoline engines, which consume less fuel and reduce emissions further, using the turbocharger and other Powertrain Technologies to provide significantly improved fuel economy and performance of the torque of an engine capacity greater.

Mondeo 240 PS the new version from Ford's 2.0-liter EcoBoost engine the same basic technology and design of the famous 203 hp version, launched in the S-MAX, Galaxy and Mondeo as early as 2010, and continue to be available in the new Ford Mondeo range. It will build on the significant changes in the exhaust calibration engine intake and together to facilitate the delivery of the extra 37 PS of power.

The 203 hp (149 kW) version delivers an impressive peak horsepower at 6000 rpm, with a combined maximum torque of 300 Nm is delivered through a wide speed range 1750-4500. The new engine produces its 240 hp (176 kW) at 6,000 rpm with maximum torque of 340 Nm through the rev range of 1900-3500 rpm, with an impressive torque of 320 Nm is still available at 5000 rpm / min / min.

The two engines of 2.0 liter Ford EcoBoost are available exclusively for the very flexible and easy-Ford six-speed dual-clutch Powershift transmission automatic wet, giving drivers an engine that combines exceptional performance and efficiency with supreme elegance.

Although figures are reactive, both versions of the new Ford EcoBoost 2.0-liter engine can produce the new Mondeo's impressive fuel economy and low CO2 emissions.

Whatever power or body style of a combined fuel consumption of 7.7 L/100km (36.6 mpg) achieved. This is reflected by the average CO2 emissions of just 179 g / km. Compared to the previous 161 PS powerplant automatic 2.3 liter of the old Ford Mondeo, which is reduced CO2 emissions by 19 percent, although the new 2.0-liter engine has until the power of nearly 50 percent higher and 60 percent more torque.

The Sound of Power

Ford engineers have developed the new Mondeo 240 bhp Ford EcoBoost engine to ensure its performance is further understood as experienced.

A new design of the exhaust manifold has been developed based on the 203 PS version installed, but still designed to withstand the high temperatures generated by a higher power. This is particularly important when the motor is continuously driven hard over long distances, and also offers a full flow of exhaust gas to drive Borg Warner K03 turbocharger more efficiently. In addition, the entire engine management system is re-programmed and calibrated to achieve greater power and torque without compromising fuel economy or CO2 levels.

A particularly significant change is aimed at driving sensations: "We felt obliged to reward the driver 240-horsepower version of the popular Ford sport and technology Symposer Sound," Dr. Rechs said.

Originally developed for the Ford Focus RS ST and performance cars, the system "sound symposer amplifies selected frequencies to transmit the engine sounds good engine into the cabin through a specially crafted link between the intake manifold and the forward cabin partition.

As with all systems symposer engine has been adapted and optimized to fit the specific character of the Ford Mondeo has a distinctive sound and sports car without the raw edge. Full acceleration symposer most votes in an envelope of 3 dB (A) average, which leads to a more efficient feedback and sporty-sounding than the 203 hp version.

Ford EcoBoost benefits

Lightweight all-aluminum construction, the latest generation of high pressure direct injection system, low inertia turbo and twin variable cam timing all contribute independently to the 2.0-liter Ford EcoBoost reach new levels of performance and fuel economy of gasoline engines in this power range. Powertrain engineers of society have maximized the improvements made by the creation of a new advanced combustion system combining the advantages of these three essential elements.

At the center of the combustion system is the latest generation of advanced high-pressure direct injection injects the fuel to each cylinder of small precise quantities. The 2.0-liter EcoBoost engine is equipped with seven-hole side injector, operating in 150 bar apparatus that controls the fuel plumes of individual exactly where they are needed and efficient combustion. Compared with conventional injection, direct injection produces a cooler and denser, allowing for a 2.0-liter EcoBoost engine Ford has a higher compression ratio and a greater push from the turbocharger, which improves fuel efficiency and a strong low-end level.

To maximize the pleasure of the driver, Ford EcoBoost engines provide the same torque very low, which makes diesel engines later so popular, combined with modern high performance throughout the engine speed range. This is made possible by turbocharging technology with small low inertia rotors which rotate at speeds over 200,000 rpm. The 2.0-liter engine is equipped with a Borg Warner K03 turbocharger optimized design to ensure that the maximum torque is achieved at low engine speeds (1,500 rpm), with an absolute minimum of delay (or "turbo-layer") where the driver requires quick acceleration.

On the contrary, care for turbo charger ensures that Ford EcoBoost engines are powerful and responsive at high speeds of 5,000 rpm, providing a much wider margin of the power of a conventional diesel engine. For example, the driver may appeal to the 90 percent of maximum torque between 1,400 and 5,500 rpm. This wide distribution of power also allows a higher transmission to be used, further benefiting fuel economy and refinement.

The 2.0-liter Ford EcoBoost engine is an independent variable valve timing for intake and exhaust cams to optimize the flow of gas into the combustion chamber at all engine speeds. TiVCT (Twin Independent Variable Camshaft Timing) system plays an important role in improving engine efficiency and performance, especially at partial load.

TiVCT use has also allowed the engineers to continue to improve torque at low speeds, using the "purification system" effect. Scavenging take advantage of differences in pressure in the intake and exhaust to increase the flow of refrigerant, the fresh air at low speeds, and produces more torque and helps the turbo spins faster. TiVCT system uses a Vane-type actuators for control of oil pressure, and may vary depending on the angle of the cam 50 degrees for both the individual intake and exhaust valves.

Engine design is optimized for maximum efficiency, with particular emphasis on minimizing the friction losses and other parasites. Special features include the use of special low friction coating on piston rings and polished surfaces of the pushers.

Because this 2.0-liter engine is small compared with the 2.5-liter five-cylinder it replaces, which provides additional benefits of reducing the effectiveness of internal friction, reducing pumping losses, lighter weight and more rapid warming and helps ensure that real-world economy engine fuel are supplied in all driving conditions, including city and highway driving.

To ensure optimum engine performance is maintained at all times, a control system of the State of the art electronic monitors all key variables, including the system TiVCT, turbo, throttle position electronic ignition, pressure fuel injection and delivery, and the knock sensor. Controller operates in real time as data samples from the engine thousands of times per second.

A key factor is the ability to heat the engine exhaust catalyst quickly during critical periods of cold start conditions. This is achieved by optimizing valve timing with TiVCT system and the use of the capacity of the fuel injection system to provide multiple injections per combustion cycle.

Refined 2.0-liter Ford Duratorq TDCi

The core line of the new Mondeo diesel engine-up is a much improved 2.0-liter Ford Duratorq TDCi engine family, which fully comply with emissions regulations stage V, which are now available with three levels of Power - 115 hp, 140 hp and 163 hp (85, 103 and 120 kW).

These engines are known for their strong driving performance, increased availability of high torque at low rpm - 300 Nm at only 1500 to 2250 rpm where the 115 hp version 320 Nm at 1750-2750 rpm with 140 hp and 340 Nm at 2,000 rpm at 3250 engine with 163 PS.

With a refined performance characteristics and low cost of ownership, including the new Duratorq TDCi engine offers impressive fuel economy and CO2 emissions. With a consumption of 5.3 l/100 km (53.2 km / l) and an average CO2 emission of just 139 g / km, all new Ford Mondeo TDCi with a six-speed manual transmission to provide figures previously met only by Mondeo ECOnetic dedicated model.

As an alternative to the manual transmission option, and two 140 hp (103 kW and 120) Version 2.0-liter Duratorq TDCi are also available with the famous Ford Powershift transmission with six-speed automatic dual-clutch wet, a delivery of 163 Combined cycle fuel economy of just 5.6 l/100 km (50.4 miles per gallon), with an average CO2 emission of 149 g / km.

The value of a full range of engines

Besides the new 2.0-liter EcoBoost petrol and 2.0 and 2.2-liter Duratorq TDCi diesel engine, the new Ford Mondeo range of possibilities for other fuel value seeking customers in the market for large cars.

There is also an engine of 1.6 and 2.0 liter Duratec gasoline - the latter also provide a version of flexible fuel vehicles, capable of using each fuel, a mixture of normal gasoline with bioethanol E85 - classes offers power 120 hp (88 kW) and 145 hp (107), combined with 5-speed manual transmission. The details of these engines are the technical specifications section.

More to come

most exciting engines - including engines displacing over 1.6-liter Duratorq TDCi Ford EcoBoost and families - will be available for the new Ford Mondeo shortly. Additional information will be available closer to launch.

Ford ECOnetic technology - fuel economy and less CO2

After launching its first dedicated auto high economy in 2007 - the Focus ECOnetic - Ford has always ensured that the main technologies applied to ECOnetic range of vehicles are also more widely available to customers who opt for the regular version, but want to reach the lowest carbon footprint in their cars. To that end, Ford presented its technology program Ford ECOnetic, which clearly identifies the characteristics of customers may choose to have a beneficial impact on fuel economy and emissions.

The new Ford Mondeo Ford ECOnetic range includes two innovative technologies that have already been launched in recent Focus ECOnetic. Intelligent charging system and Ford Eco Mode is standard on all new Ford Mondeo range.

extensive experience in Ford's aerodynamic detail has also led to a second feature Ford ECOnetic technology made its debut in the European series of Ford's new Mondeo - Active Matrix Shutter technology.

New shutter active matrix

Based on his experience in aerodynamic aids such as punching grille covers dedicated Ford ECOnetic models, Ford has reached another technological "first" through a significant benefit from the cooling mask Active Shutter for the first time in series production car .

The new Ford Mondeo Active Shutter Grille is located in front of the radiator on the front bumper beam and opens and closes to a maximum of 15 degrees at six different positions of additional steps, changing both the resistance of the total air vehicle and powertrain cooling level. Active Matrix fully closed shutter can improve the aerodynamic drag by up to 6 percent.

Optimized for maximum energy efficiency and guaranteed to help warm the engine up to operating temperature more rapidly effective, a control unit keeps the valve closed as long as possible during the first phase. The operating temperatures are continually monitored to ensure that all factors that influence specific - such as high and low speed driving and towing - not creating undesirable temperature variations.

Active Shutter grid will be standard on the new Mondeo, the 2.0-liter or 2.0-liter EcoBoost Duratorq TDCi engines are specified, and will also be applied to other models in the future.

New Smart regenerative charge

Smart regenerative charging system new Mondeo uses advanced technology to ensure that the battery is charging effectively increasing the efficiency of the alternator during braking or deceleration and the conversion of this kinetic energy into electrical energy without using additional fuel.

"Free", electricity is then used to recharge the battery, and can then take the vehicle's electrical system later. Advanced Management System continuously monitors battery status and communicates with the electronics on board to recharge the system more effective enforcement.

Intelligent charging system is standard on all versions of the new Ford Mondeo.

New Ford Eco Mode Driver Information System

Driver and the new Ford Mondeo is not only able to benefit from new equipment technologies to achieve fuel consumption, but also the introduction of the Ford brand Smart mode, focused on software driver, which is standard on all models.

Using algorithms developed from a database of "eco-driving techniques, Ford Eco Mode helps drivers achieve maximum fuel economy in the real world. The new software system is built into the dashboard of the operator and the new Mondeo is designed to provide the driver with useful and realistic eco driving tips.

It controls the main parameters relevant to achieving optimal consumption of fuel can actively contribute to driving. These include, for example, changing gears, the driver's anticipation (of transport activity in a consistent and smooth as possible) the highway, and (the guide is the most efficient speed for all conditions). The system also controls less efficient short trips in cold start to the processing of data.

Accordingly, the Ford Eco Fashion driver with a particular current "score" and provides information on how to improve fuel economy over time. This is an ongoing process that the driver can use to maximize the range of the car's technology edge.

Ford PowerShift: simple and effective

Ford PowerShift is standard on the new Ford Mondeo, 203 or 240 Engine 2.0-liter EcoBoost - to provide an advanced combination that offers a new level of fuel efficiency and low CO2, but shows that driving pleasure does not needs to lead to high levels of CO2 emissions. Ford PowerShift is also an optional 140 and 163 hp versions of the 2.0-liter Duratorq TDCi common-rail turbo-diesel.

Getrag Ford Transmissions GmbH developed by, Ford and GETRAG 50:50 joint venture, Ford Powershift consists of two layshaft transmissions working in parallel, each with its own wet clutch unit. Thanks for the look of your trees Intermediate - a march wearing odd 1, 3 and 5, as well as others', including Gears 2, 4 and 6 -. Next, the gear changes can be made in advance by selecting and moving to the next gear speed change will be further questioned the activation of both clutches, that coordinate pair to avoid the suspension.

Unlike conventional automatic transmissions, the basic technical configuration of the Ford PowerShift transmission offers numerous advantages. For example, does not require any complex sub-systems such as torque converters, planetary gears provides multiple clutches and multiple bands - all of which significantly reduce gearbox efficiency, increasing the inertia and drag torque effects.

Certified fuel economy data for 203 and 240 hp 2.0-liter engine paired with Ford's EcoBoost power shift Ford, clearly demonstrates the effectiveness of a powertrain combination with modern automatic transmission can be. The new Mondeo in this state of advanced powertrains offers a combined fuel economy of only 7.7 l/100 km (36.6 mpg) and a level of average CO2 emission of just 179 g / km. Combining Duratorq TDCi (140 or 163 hp) and Ford Powershift, generates an even more impressive fuel of only 5.6 l/100 km (50.4 mpg), with an emission level of CO2 an average of just 149 g / km.

Drivers with the Ford PowerShift is simple and easy as a conventional automatic gearbox with automatic gearbox in the center console and the usual P, R, N and D settings available. In addition, the establishment of regular, sport and manual can be selected by moving the exchange rate right and another near the station. In sport mode the transmission adjusted by moving the point of testing, more power, and down-changes to be implemented immediately, if more difficult for the acceleration is necessary.
