  1. What can I say? This car is just plain cool! And 220 hard earned horses out of a V6? Godlike! This car single handidly puts Ford at the top of my car enthusiast list!<!-- Signature -->

    How much is this car? You can get the V6 Altima for around 24,000 if you haggle a little.

    Actually, the GM engine is not 4.6 liters, but rather 4.2, and the six cylinders are inline, not in a Vee. Since the displacement of the engine isn't posted on the site, I couldn't directly compare this Mondeo to a car of similar displacement. 220 horses from 2.5 liters with no supercharger or turbo is quite impressive, but hardly godlike. Honda gets 240 horses from the 2.0 four banger in the S2000.

    this car would be around 20grand i read somewhere. it is the taurus of europe but better than the taurus. if you think about it and if this is the 3L and produces 220hp still is better than the 3.5 liter that produces the 244hp.
    Look at the price difference between this car and the S2000. anyway this car has around 200tourque while the S2000 i believe has around 160tourque. and if you compare the average 3L engine fords 3L produces 205hp and 200tourque while the honda produces 200hp and 195 tourque.
    I like the hondas specially the S2000 (which i don't believe has a verygood reliability in the long run) but compare the engines of the same class and you will see this is good power, not breathtaking but a family car with some guts.

    killer 69 no body gives a damn what you think. and this is definitly a good car. no wonder ford is making money while gm is losing money in europe.

    for your info....the 2.5l can be found in 167bhp and 202bhp....but this car is due to be released in the UK with a 3.0l v6

    Someone needs to look closer to home. The Mondeo is currently only sold in Europe, and the Nissan Altima, sold here in the U.S. and recipient of the Car of the Year award, has a standard 240 horses from a 3.5 liter V6. Plus, the Nissan Maxima, also sold here, gets 255 horses from a modified version of the same V6. And let's not start about the new Nissan Z, which is rumored to be able to produce 280-300 horsepower from the SAME 3.5 liter V6. Even a domestic, the Chevy Trailblazer, which is also sold as the GMC Envoy, the Olds Bravada, and the Izuzu Ascender, has an Inline-six cylinder engine producing 270 horses. This car is nothing special. Looks sharp, though.

    all of those cars you mentioned cost more than this car. and you know why its 220hp, becuase its sold only in europe, they have a 168hp 2.5 v6 that does 60mph at 8.5 sec (same car), so this car does it probably in high 6sec, so it beats those cars, and this by the way has one car of the year for some european magazine. that gm engine is like 4.6 liter v6 and ford got 320hp out of a 4.6 v8 so i wont go there.
    is this the 3liter or the 2.5liter becuase if its the 2.5 liter that is just amazing. and just because there is no 2.5 in us, doesn't mean ford isn't producing it like their 1.1L engine in upcoming ford fusion and Ka.

    nice car...

    thats all i got to say right now :D
     
  11. Re: This car is so amazing! 220 hp from a V6? Nice!

    220 bp from a V6 isnt that impressive.
     
  12. Re: This car is so amazing! 220 hp from a V6? Nice!

    The Nissan's VQ35DE engine is capable of 400hp.
     
  13. Re: This car is so amazing! 220 hp from a V6? Nice!

    but the mondeo is a 2.5L v6
    a fairly small 6 cylinder engine size...
    comparing to other 2.5L v6s out there would be a fairer comparison.
     
  14. Re: This car is so amazing! 220 hp from a V6? Nice!

    I'm talking about the VQ35DE!!
     
  15. Re: This car is so amazing! 220 hp from a V6? Nice!

    So.....240 horses out of a 2.0 liter 4cyl. Naturally aspirated isn't good?




    I'd say that blows this away.
     
  16. Re: This car is so amazing! 220 hp from a V6? Nice!

    Altima does 0-60mph in 5.9 sec, according to motorweek.
     
  17. Re: This car is so amazing! 220 hp from a V6? Nice!

    Is it just me, or does this look like a Civic
     
  18. Re: This car is so amazing! 220 hp from a V6? Nice!

    Dodge Spirit R/T 1993 has 230 hp from a 2.4 L4, I think 220 hp from a V6 aren't so impressive.
     
  19. Re: This car is so amazing! 220 hp from a V6? Nice!

    Actually the Mondeo is also sold in Mexico...so if you really want one you could get one next year with no imports tax.
     
  20. Re: This car is so amazing! 220 hp from a V6? Nice!

    i agreee with you. it reminds me of a new accord.

  22. Re: This car is so amazing! 220 hp from a V6? Nice!

    This concept has the 3.0l V6. And I've driven the production ST220 and it changed my mind about new Fords. It is one sweetass ride.
     
  23. Re: This car is so amazing! 220 hp from a V6? Nice!

    This car has a 3.0 ltr v6. It`s a Bored out variant of the 2.5 ltr Duratec unit that is found in the lesser v6 Mondeos. It was Jaguar that undertook this work for their S-Type and X-Type cars. The engine was detuned from around 290 bhp for servicing purposes. Change the oil every year and you have a car with 100`000 mile service interval.


    PS. Change the filter, Exhaust and fueling chip and you`ll get the horse power back. I did!
