2019 Ford Mondeo facelift unveiled

The facelifted Ford Mondeo have been unveiled at the 2019 Brussels motor show in Belgium. Subtle is probably the best way of describing this update. Up front all models gain a new front bumper, which visually joins together the lower air intake and fog light pods for a slightly sportier design. Depending on the trim and model there's also new grille inserts and alloy wheel designs to marvel at...

2018.75 Ford Mondeo spied, update confirmed for 2019

Ford Australia has confirmed a very mildly-updated MY18.75 Mondeo will launch at the beginning of next year, after it was spied on the roads of Melbourne this week. Snapped by our very own Mike Stevens, the bum-lifted wagon gets a new tail-light arrangement joined through the middle by a chrome strip – giving the estate-bodied Mondeo a more upmarket look at the rear...

Ford Australia urges Mondeo owners to get Takata airbags repaired

Ford Australia is pleading with owners of its mid-sized Mondeo to have their faulty Takata airbags fixed, having already repaired "more than 60 per cent" of the 16,701 vehicles affected locally. As first reported last week, models sold from 2007-2009 and 2014-2017 could be fitted with potentially deadly inflators on the drivers side, though they wear the less-dangerous 'beta' rating...

2007-2017 Ford Mondeo added to Takata recall

Ford has added the 2007-2009 and 2014-2017 Mondeo to the ever-growing list of vehicles in line to have their faulty Takata airbags replaced. As with all Takata recalls, a combination of heat and humidity can make the airbag propellant in affected vehicles degrade...

Ford: Reports of Mondeo's death are greatly exaggerated

Ford has refuted suggestions it's planning to axe the Mondeo, arguing it's a "core part" of the European model range. A report in The Telegraph earlier this week said there's "mounting speculation" the Mondeo range will be culled, along with the Galaxy and S-Max. With the reshuffle would also come 24,000 job cuts, as Ford moves to focus on the growing global demand for crossovers...

Ford Mondeo on the chopping block - report

The mid-sized Ford Mondeo could soon be no more, with reports out of the UK claiming the Blue Oval could drop its long-running nameplate as it tries to cut costs. A new article by The Telegraph says Ford is facing "mounting speculation" that it's planning to scrap the Mondeo range and cut up to 24,000 jobs...

2019 Ford Mondeo spied

The facelifted Ford Mondeo has been spied again, this time in wagon form during hot weather testing in Southern Europe. Expected to be officially revealed later this year or early next, the Mondeo's mid-life facelift will likely combine a subtle exterior refresh with a technology upgrade to keep it competitive against the likes of the Mazda 6 and Volkswagen Passat...

Ford has issued a recall for approximately 550,000 Escapes and Fusions in North America this week, over concerns about automatic transmissions that may not shift into the selected gear. The Blue Oval reports the bushing connecting the shifter cable to the transmission may detach, allowing the transmission to be in a "gear state different than the gear shift position selected by the driver"...

Ford Fusion to become crossover wagon - report

The Ford Fusion sedan will die at the turn of the decade, but its nameplate could live on as a high-riding Subaru Outback rival, according to a new report. Industry journal Automotive News claims "people familiar with the automaker's plans" have indicated the current sedan will be replaced by a "high-roofed hatchback" based on the same underpinnings...

Ford Mondeo to live on in Europe until mid-2020s - report

The Ford Mondeo will reportedly live on until the mid-2020s, but it's not clear if the car will be renewed for another generation. The company is preparing a facelifted model due to be launch later this year, and which was last spied in March this year during cold weather testing...
