Next-gen Ford Mondeo spy shots – Click above for high-res image gallery

Ford is hard at work on the next generation of its Mondeo mid-size sedan. Spy photographers caught a snow and camo-covered version of the new mid-size sedan as it waits to be shuttled to its next testing location. The car shows hints of adhering to Ford's Kinetic design language, and we expect the front-end to – ahem – focus in on that style.

The next Mondeo will serve as a true global vehicle like its smaller Fiesta and Focus siblings. Lincoln and Ford will use the upcoming Mondeo as the guts beneath both the Fusion and MKZ skin. Rumor has it that this future Mondeo will also be offered as a wagon and four-door fancy-coupe, as well.

      Make it stop! Please! Make it stop!
      I just had a nightmare where this was the basis for a baby Jaguar and idiots like me bought one and every 5000 miles it needed to spend 3 days at the shop because it had so many problems and the dealer either could not get the parts or did not know how to fix it or claimed there was nothing wrong or a combination of all three and when I traded it in, it was worthless, but hey, we saved $16,000 over the cost of an equivalent spec BMW 330iX, or so she insisted....

      Hmmm, a Lincoln MKZ Estate Saloon.......
      • 4 Years Ago
      Meh. Looks bland and uninspired.

      Really amused by all these Ford jokes today...

      4 doors does not a coupe make.

      I want a Fusion RS wagon! 6 speed manual and the 2.0 eco-boost engine putting down 300hp, AWD would be awesome too.

      sigh... I should probably just continue to dream.
        • 4 Years Ago
        We need an intelligent AWD or a permanent 4WD for the Fiesta, Focus and Mondeo too.

        Many road vehicles today come with the option of 4WD and AWD, Ford no! Shame!

        It's called a WRX STi.

        Jus sayin.

        Or maybe an Audi s4?
        • 4 Years Ago
        WRX is a good bit smaller than a Fusion/Mondeo wagon would be. And the Audi would cost $15k more...

      Won't the next gen Mondeo and Fusion be built on the same platform?
        • 4 Years Ago
        Yes, will be making on the same platform.
      • 4 Years Ago
      expect the production version to look ENTIRELY different than this mule....remember the Explorer Mules?....case in point...
      • 4 Years Ago
      http://www.ford.co.uk/Cars/Mondeo Saying that Ford is "hard at work" with the New Gen Mondeo with "spy shots" to prove your point is wrong. Maybe you should of titled the news article as " What kind of engines are in it to merit any changes to the front?" Just saying....

      Do we really need the Fusion/ Mondeo and the Taurus? The Focus is nearly as big as the Fusion and with gas prices the way they are the Taurus seems redundant. Why not take the route Honda did with it's last Accord redesign, and move the Fusion (just barely) into the full size category? Less weight than the currant Taurus (keep the 3.5EB) and fewer platforms to maintain. I never understood why they need a C/D platform anyway.

      Same could be said about the Edge/Explorer/Flex mess. Those three could become one vehicle and no one would even notice.

      Looks like Ford is continuing the tradition of naming its test mules, if the "ALICE" on the trunklid of this mule is any indication.
