Spy Shots: 2011 Ford Mondeo coming with 2.0L Ecoboost

The Ford Mondeo is due for a mid-cycle refresh for the 2011 model year and all signs point to a debut at the Paris Motor Show this September. But ahead of its big reveal, spy photographers have caught the new Mondeo out in the open, and while the basic shape hasn't changed, there's something far more interesting under the hood.

The major stylistic upgrades are up front, where the Mondeo's fascia picks up a few cues from the Fiesta and the 2012 Focus, including a larger lower grille and slimmer upper section. The front foglamps have been re-shaped and a strip of LED running lamps tie the design into Ford's B-segment hatch.

At the back, the tailgate gets a subtle re-shaping above the license plate pocket and it appears the lights have been modified under the camo tape. The most important changes will be in the engine compartment, where the Mondeo will get the new 2.0-liter Ecoboost inline-four and the Powershift dual-clutch transmission. Expect all the details to be revealed shortly ahead of the Paris show this fall.

You can already get a Mondeo with the new 203 hp 2.0T EcoBoost and dual-clutch PowerShift transmission. It actually has lower fuel consumption and emissions than the old naturally-aspirated 2.0-liter 145 hp Duratec four.

If Ford wants to continue Mercury for a few more years, this refresh is the perfect opportunity for them to do so. Import them from Taiwan, where it's currently made (in addition to Belgium and China). The clock is ticking...
