The all-new Ford Mondeo will be fitted with the company's 1.0-litre EcoBoost engine, making it the largest-ever Ford vehicle to be powered by such a small displacement engine.

The impressive turbocharged 1.0-litre three-cylinder EcoBoost motor confirmed for the Ford Mondeo, and already employed by the likes of the Ford Focus and Ford Fiesta, generates 92kW of power and 170Nm of torque – with 200Nm available with an overboost function.

Ford is expecting the EcoBoost engine to deliver the new Mondeo best-in-class fuel economy and CO2 emissions of less than 130 grams per kilometre.

The 1.0-litre Ford powerplant features twin independent variable camshaft timing (Ti-VCT), low-inertia turbocharger, direct fuel injection, aluminium cylinder head, low friction piston coatings, piston rings and crank seals, and a cambelt-in-oil design.

The new Mondeo will join Ford Australia's line-up although it is unlikely to arrive here before the start of 2014. Ford Australia's Sinead Phipps said the 1.0-litre engine was not intended to feature in the initial launch range.
