2013 Ford Mondeo revealed

Launches early next year

Ford has released the first pictures of the 2013 Mondeo, ahead of its launch early next year.

Looking virtually identical to the Fusion, the Mondeo is distinguished by a monotone rear fascia and restyled headlights with LED turn signals. The similarities might put some people off, but they aren't surprising considering both vehicles were developed under the "One Ford" strategy which attempts to increase commonality between European and U.S. models.

There's no word on specifications, but the redesigned Mondeo will likely offer a 1.6-liter EcoBoost engine with 179 hp (133 kW / 181 PS) and 172 lb-ft (233 Nm) of torque. We can also expect a 2.0-liter EcoBoost that develops 237 hp (177 kW / 240 PS) and 250 lb-ft (339 Nm) of torque.

What the...how is this news? The Mondeo's been revealed for at least a couple days now. I'll give you a hint: it's the officially revealed new Ford Fusion you JUST reported on two days ago.

And when comes the station wagon (combi) version which is important in the european market ? Or maybe because those lovely amercians don't need it, we don't get it eighter ? ...

I'm sure you guys will get one. After all; you Europeans (at least, from what I've heard) actually put your money where your mouths are and BUY wagons when they're offered to you, which is more than I can say for the stupid 13-year-old "fanbois" who throw temper tantrums whenever a new wagon shows up...NOT available for the U.S.

It's probably the same car, only in the U.S. called Fusion, if I'm not mistaken;-)

It is the same car. It's part of Ford's new strategy to make fewer models.
