The end of the current European market Mondeo and North American Fusion is nearing as Ford is ramping up tests of a new common replacement for both models in the mid-size category.
We’ve already shown you spy pictures of the sedan model, but now our scoopers captured a test-mule of the station wagon derivative. It’s too early for Ford to talk about availability, but it’s fairly certain that the Estate version of the next Mondeo/Fusion series will not be sold in the States.
Like the sedan prototype, the estate model seen here clothes Ford’s new platform with body parts from the current Mondeo station wagon sans the front end which appears to be new.
While we’re still in the dark about the mid-size model’s looks, Ford made it pretty clear at the Frankfurt Motor Show that the next generation of its vehicles will be heavily influenced by the styling of the EVOS concept.
Power is expected to come from Ford’s latest the 1.6-liter and 2.0-liter EcoBoost turbocharged four-cylinder engines producing up to around 250-horses, while European buyers will also get a choice of frugal turbo diesel units.
